OK so the old jalopy is due for it's MOT. Did the usual check and noticed a couple of things that would need doing but having the car less than a year decided to just put it in and see if had missed anything. Since checking the obvious thing like lights a few days ago one thing it failed on is two blown bulbs. One I knew about but didn't have a number plate bulb to hand the other was not blown three days ago but at the testing station the N/S brake light was out yet was fine three days ago when I backed into the parking slot outside the Post office in the village. Oh well!
What annoyed me is that the car has a sunstrip across the top of the windscreen, by the look of it it's been there years and yet now it's an MOT failure as the wiper blades touch it ............................WTF ........................... it's there to shade ones eyes and stop glare and it's smoked but see through petty or what?
Couple of brake pipes have corrosion on them so need replacing, rear anti roll bar has a bush split and a rear disc has some distortion so he says.
So will order up the bits including a set of bushes for the anti roll bar if one is split I'll bet the others are showing their age after all the car is a "T" plate so knocking on a bit. New discs and pads fr the rear, pads were getting down anyway so were due for replacement before too long and this was planned for the summer so no biggie. Will re-check the fronts .......................... might as well and it's about due for an oil change so why it's up might as well do it.
Could have been worse .
