MOT looming...........

Post by Logi on Fri Nov 11, 2011 9:35 pm

Mot is out beginning of January, been having a wee look round the 'Jet, i'm wondering about the viability of getting it through another MOT. Trouble is with buying the cabriogay Wink i've still got 4 cars and realistically the van could go as we've done most of the big moves in the house, Hopefully by Xmas the bathroom will be finished and that just leaves the kitchen for next year and i already have most of the stuff here for it.

Decisions, decisions. Question

Corrosion in important places has to be a consideration though I've been lucky not to have that on either of mine (yet!). Usual suspects for me seem to be track rod ends and brake pipes, the latter can mean dropping the fuel tank.

I ditched my hijet when I'd pretty much finished our place, but I totally regret it as it was so handy for tip runs and picking stuff up.

Even since finishing out house I miss the hijet, everytime I buy something or get roped into a mates problems I wish I still had the mpv hijet.

So much so I'm thinking of selling the pickup and getting another mpv to bike engine convert.

After driving the pickup the smaller cab is a real issue for my long legs.

Mine is due next month and although the exhaust is ok the end of the tailpipe is corroded back to the handing bracket. Will wait and see if it passes before buying a new one.

Did the tester have a labrador with reflectors and a metal lead? Big black glasses and a piano too?

You can book your vans in with Richard at Arrow service centre on 01992 257 5558 and tell Bob the tester that Rich with the ratty escort (that passed with no advisories after a couple of really minor fails) said he was the best tester in Essex.
