Mot time

Post by Jasonmarie » Tue Oct 08, 2019 6:36 pm

So can’t believe it’s MOT time for my old lady she’s having the sunroof looked at as it was a bit sticky the other month and a new rubber bumper stop on the rear . So she was dropped off at good old Tickover for the MoT in the morning .
Then I will pack her away for a long winter sleep .

Picture of all the old capris for spares at Tickover ..... will let you know how she gets on .

Good luck.

Mines booked in Monday morning. Can't say I'm feeling confident, but then she's coming off the road at the end of the month and I get to start welding.

Mine passed the other day, thankfully. Always a nerve wracking experience, though I tend to be more nervous of the fact that someone is messing with my car as opposed to the test itself!
