IVA Pass

Wahoooo, yes, I am God, Passed the IVA today with not a single fix & I’ve come over all smug. I would like to take the opportunity to thank my wife & son & daughter & my agent “BLUB SOB“& not forgetting my wife for all there help & support ”WEEP”, And it only took 14 years.
Seriously folks I do want to thank all the collective on this site whose source of information over the years has been invaluable, if sometimes only for its entertainment value. Ta !

Furore Formula Car - the only two seater modern Formula Car lookalike. I no longer run Furore Products or Furore Cars Ltd, but would still highly recommend them for Acewell dashes, projector headlights, dominator headlights, indicators, mirrors etc, best prices in the UK! Take a look at http://www.furoreproducts.co.uk/ or find more parts on Ebay, user names furoreltd & furoreproducts, discounts available for LCB users.
Don't forget Stainless Steel Braided brake hoses, made to your exact requirements in any of around 16 colours. http://shop.ebay.co.uk/furoreproducts/m.html?_dmd=1&_ipg=50&_sop=12&_rdc=1

Well done that man!

I just hope I'm as lucky, if I ever get the damn date! I'm still waiting for VOSA to send it to the test centre, and they took my money on 18th May!!





It looks like the Midget is winning at the moment......

IVA Pass

Yup 14 years, did have a several year stagnant spell in the middle tho.
As for Leighton Buzzard, Fantastic. My tester D Sharp (sorry cant remember his first name) was friendly, helpful & knowledgeable who carried out the test n an efficient & common sense manor, For example I didn’t see the dome of doom because it was obvious there were no sharp edges for it to touch, I didn’t see the floor level cone because there was no problems there. I was introduced to Nigel the seating position template, I knew my upper seat belt mountings were a bit borderline but as it happens I had nearly 10mm spare & the mudguard template , no probs there. He complimented on neat & tidy build & how t drove witch was nice, it was also nice to see him drive it, I had never seen it move from the sideline before. All in an enjoyable rewarding day but I wonder if I would still feel the same with a fail.
