    It is customary to fail the initial test, didn't you know that?

    No offence meant - just sour grapes on my part! :) I'm just fixing up the couple of things mine failed on. It's booked in for the retest on Monday...

    mines passed first time for the last four years with no adviserys. on a class 7 test, but being daily driver as well as weekend toy and doing about 43000 miles a year any little niggles tend to get sorted straight away

    Only reason it didn't fail is because I got my uncle who's a mechanic to do a mock test on it and then I fixed what he found. Needed a plate on the chassis, a swivel and then just bleeding the brakes. Then after that I took it for the test and it passed. Must admit I turned the fuel down to get it through the emissions and then turned it back up in the car park ;)

    Rear damper bushes on the way out.
    Leak from rear hub end cap.

    Surely you'd be ashamed if you didn't Ian:D

    Well done by the way - that's another year's welding on the rear cross member behind you
