  1. well theres the issue. advisorys are totally at the testers discretion they can advise that the dont like the paint colour if they like, the dvsa will do nothing unless the advisory is offensive (like the joke ones you see on line)
  2. must be. last week dads slk was in for a mot, advised all four tyres perished and cracking. strange, as they are about 6 weeks old....
  3. 4 years. gotta be a record. i scrapped mine years ago. edit, i make it 4 years 11 months....
  4. a good excuse as any to stick a manual in it you'll gain both performance and economy.
  5. decent compressor, and a water trap are essential. a good heater to grt a decent temperature in he shed a dehumidifier makes life easier, the HVLP spray guns from screwfix are very good for the price. i have 4. does a good job considering....

  10. two major jobs done this past week.... one, a heater installed so i can stop freezing to death! fuel tank bracket made and hung so i can fill it with red diesel.. here i have added a one way valve and a filter, throwing the crappy filter supplied away as i couldn't get all the air out of it... for some reason without the one way valve it wont prime, it just keeps running back into the tank when the pump stops. this has prevented that. all the pipework run (need to clip the fuel line back, will do that later). interior and controller. second jo
  11. do bits of piston and conrod, and crank carrier count😂
