....my aim is to get the MOT to happen in the winter so I've got no sunny weather down-time!

Fingers crossed. All except 2 of last year's advisories fixed....

Passed...yay! 1 of the same advisories (track rod end gaiters), 1 new one (front discs corroding around the edges but nothing to worry about - great braking performance).... and the wheel bearing play has gone (I've not fixed it!).

Great result, read the other day there should be a slight play in the wheel bearings anyway or there would be to much friction, one testers interpretation of play is different to another as long as its not excessive.I forgot who wrote it but it was someone on here.
