    Testing

    So I can now post but not send PMs...weird
  2. Yeah but he never had to scrabble on his hands and knees through bits of old tape/swarf/oil to find that 10 mil socket he'd just dropped through the engine bay
  3. At least it's a nice easy fix...and glad to hear AutoAid worked well as I have a policy with them as well...
  4. Note the text in red....this is an alternative option, NOT a requirement IMO. The actual requirement only says this: 4. The rear fog lamp(s) must only illuminate when dipped beam, main beam or front fog lamps are lit (see alternatives in Notes 3 & 4)
  5. The IVA test doesn't care about full lock, it'll be fine on the edge. In fact, I think it looks quite good...
  6. I got through IVA (in 2017) without that but I don't recall him actively testing it either. However, I'm pretty sure that when I read the IVA manual, it was not a requirement, from my understanding, so I was never thinking about it during the test.
  7. Almost certainly the side-arch only. There was at least 1 person who failed IVA because the repeater was on the side panel (although not sure exactly where - might be a location where it is ok?). Look in the IVA manual, there is a complicated looking diagram showing where it has to be visible from.

    Sheds

    This is a garden shed which has a lawnmower and a few other odds and ends - will that cause condensation? I won't be spending any time in it, I can only fit a basic 6'x4' shed. Advert says it is galvanised?

    Sheds

    I need to update my rubbish wooden shed (it was cheap) and I don't know whether to go plastic or metal -any opinions? Metal ones seem much cheaper, which I was surprised by...
  10. Well done, although pictures are needed...

    Xmas wishes

    Sorry, bit late but happy hols to all
  12. As Ian says, if you try keep the same amount of rubber, the wheels just won't fit under the wheel arches and you'll affect the speedo. If you keep it low profile, you'll make minimal different to ground clearance and the ride will be even harder than normal (if that is possible ).
