First attempt, car came back with usual pishy fails - MOT friendly exhaust had major leaks due to fitting it at midnight the night before (it's a piece of crap to fit at the best of time), headlight aim too high, apparently my shock was leaking when it's gas filled - I had just wiped the strut before it went in lol, rear brakes little to no effort.

So sorted that out and it went back in today, everything was fine, went to take it for a thrash before the emissions test and the throttle cable snaps! cheers

Better than it going in the middle of a road trip or something though.

Top Banana!

Always remember the cable going on my Berlingo, Routed a bit of string from the throttle on the engine, through the scuttle panel, through the window and into my mouth.

Head controlled throttle FTW,

A lad off ssc did similar on the way to Kames a few years ago, was funny as fudge to watch.


Glad the car has based Jonny
