Default MOT on Monday

Finally my MX5 has been dropped off at the MOT station.
I've never been as busy as I have been and it's been a real struggle to get it ready.
Fingers crossed it will sail through

Default Failed...

The car failed on it's headlights :-(
They look like someone has tried to buff them up and made a bit of a mess of it.
So now I'm on the lookout for a pair of Mk2 headlights to buy/loan to get me through the MOT.

Guess what I've got! Send me your address on PM and I will send them up in the post for you, you can bring them back when you pick up your kit.

It has, it wasn't even that hard work to be honest.
I'd happily do another.

Well, today is the day I finally get my MOT certificate. The new lights were fitted yesterday (thanks again to Chris at Tribute) and the retest is at dinner time.
A quick trip to the Post Office for a tax disk and I'm good to go!!!
