cheers for the words of encouragement folks

been out on the bug again tonight, MOT is booked for thursday

Fixed the indicator, broke the horn push on the steering wheel, luckily nomates is going to loan me a steering wheel, cheers dude

so my pre MOT list is as follows


Get horn to work
Minor tune up
Test run
Bolt up the seat belts
Fit the borrowed steering wheel
Stick the pins in the rear hub nuts
Pump the tyres up
refit the rear seat trim panel


Got a wedding on friday night and i'm driving, so i'll be up fresh and early on saturday morning to give the car a good clean and polish and then i'll take a drive over the bridge
