Got Little Mo MOT today,first time its had MOT since 1990,flew through with no real problems,the guy who done mot wasn't happy that my passenger door doesn't have outside handle,as in an emergency someone couldnt open door from outside,but isnt that the case with all cars without central locking,and most new cars when youve been inside for 30seconds car automatically locks all doors to stop unwanted people getting in, :?

I'm a little slow in responding, but also good to meet up and spend some time with you and witnessing the knowledge you have.

Little Mo is definitely a well engineered piece of automobile craftsmanship. Credit to you. Look forward to seeing you give it some. How did the Rolling Road go this week, upwards of 360bhp.?

Got my tax renewal today for little mo,1958 Morris minor,it says on form that vehicle needs appropriate mot test certificate,I believe this is because it is registered as 2000cc,no problems as already moted

Got some new rear lights that a member Pat AKA Fmuscle (Australia) has designed and made,these lights are made as good as any major manufacturer and are top quality,The great thing about the lights they are full LED,And also have the indicators built in,so no need for additional aftermarket lights that never look all that good.The lights are a sealed unit and even have the wiring instructions moulded into base,very helpfull.The wires are long to make connections in the boot like the originals.Ive got a loom that i made so my connections are under the wing(plus not usual moggy wire colours).
