    1300E resto number 2

    turns out I didn't need the MOT though, I thought, and tbh was either told or read I cant remember, that to get it back on the road tax system it would need a first MOT, to basically prove the car still existed so having had it MOT'd this morning, it can take up to 5 days to register on the system, and still at the time im writing this its still not on the system, unsure whether I need a v112 form now or in 12 months time, I take the form with V5 and paper copy of the mot to the post office the lady had no interest in the MOT what so ever, just V5 marked historic and signed an the filled in V112 for mot exemption, and hey presto, a years free tax so, root through your drawers for that V5 for a Mex for example that you scrapped years ago and didn't record it, insure and tax it, buy an 1100L while you restore it for the next 5 years and make it look like a mex, put it up for sale as an un used classic, and hey presto the road tax gives it a history of something been around for a while rather than just been manufactured in your garage, kerrching the Government helping you to ring a car

    well she came out for the first time since being done tonight, I drove it up and down the estate a couple of times, and Colin the gearbox and rack are spot on, absolutely fantastic, many thanks going for MOT first thing tomorrow
  4. whilst I feel really sorry for all these people loosing their cars, I cant get my head round why you would leave that car on a driveway in this day and age, it needs to be in fort knox for gods sake, I will guarantee the scum that stole it have it better protected now

    I use a proper laptop that I turn off, rather than a pad, but it saves the user name and password, but when you select the forum from the favourites, that's when it happens, I pads etc tend to keep the app open unless you specifically close it down, keeping you logged in

    as you know I like my detail, so with great thanks to a lovely man in kent named Keith, my wife and daughter was able to re-produce the very rare carpet label this is a picture of the label on Keiths car, showing all but 2 of the dimensions from that my daughter produced the following on paper and my wife took to work and put that onto a sticker sheet and the cut out version now in the car
