IVA PASS

After 2 years of building I passed my IVA at Nottingham.
There was a few adjustments need but Martin, at the test centre, was really helpfull.
The worst part of the day was the fact that it didn't stop rainning. I had to bale all the water out the car when I got it off the trailer.
Thanks to everyone on the forum that has helped when I didn't have a clue what I was doing, especially big_was because without him I still won't have the engine running.
Doesn't it look better after an IVA

Well done mate. Mine went to Nottigham and I agree Martin was very helpful.

All you need now is some good weather.

BTW, how 'close' were the upper seat belt mounts in the end, and did you manage to cover the fusebox in the passenger well or not bother?

Well done.

Maybe drill some holes in the floor to save on bailing.

The IVA its self isn't to bad. A bit nerverewracking but martin, the tester, made the whole experiance bareable.
My advice to anyone else would be to book it in at Nottingham, take a good selection of spares including spare edge trim and nut covers. Check under the dash for sharp edges and un-covered bolts. Oh and pick a day when its not raining.

The seat belt mounts were fine. I did move the relays up. Then put a sheet of aluminium between the dash and bulkhead just in case.

I did get a small drill bit out when I got home.


Anyone registered a car as new recently? On the IVA certificate under date of original registration it says 'used'. Does that mean I can't go for a new registration?
