Taxed mine on the first as I wanted to get it to the garage to get the new fuel tank fitted.....
Slight problem so no new tank yet and issue with rear brakes, so thanks to Martin that will hopefully all be done before April Haynes meet.

Trying to pick the dry days to get it there for repair is the awkward bit :lol:

The tester did say that he didn't expect to see me today as it had started to rain as it got close to the time of the test. :doh:
I didn't cancel the MOT as I didn't want to mess him about. You're right though Andy, the bad weather had made the roads filthy and the Capri needs a clean now....

Bad news though chaps......there's no photo this year as I forgot to put the memory card back in my camera. Please see the photo from last year instead! :D
