MOT Pass! - Yaaaay!

Felling slightly smug as she passed the MOT... almost cleanly...

All was well until she decided to dump a pile of brake fluid all over the floor.. ooops.. Been here before, pedal flat to the floor with the Landrover .... Mind you the handbrake is super sharp! good job!...

Fortunately the chaps a Greatbridge Garage know me well and were having none of this, so we booked it in for a (re-test immediately over lunch) and stripped out some of the rear brake lines...

Although I had made new copper brake lines, some of the pipes(double flared) had not seated properly and a couple of ends had been crushed ever so slightly... So we remade them, re-fitted, re-bled and job done, we now have brakes.

Having replaced all the caliper rubbers, pads and pipes... it was an hr or so's work ....

So everything else was fine.. couple of advisory's but I have a snagging list to go through...
.. oh an nipped in to the post office to get my Historic Vehicle tax disc with NULL printed on it...  still had to pay £1.34p for a tax disc holder : )
