    Success!!!!

    Interesting about the reflectors, I had my rear clip tethered so it could only be opened a small amount, not sure they even checked it. For the wheel arches stuck on a couple of these I bought on ebay which passed.

    Engine dies when clutch operated.

    Thanks Dwight, Interesting, although I would have thought if the pilot bearing was not driven in enough the gearbox input shaft would butt up against it causing the crank to be pushed forward, resulting in damage on the front nearest the gearbox surface of the thrust washer not the rear nearest...

    Electric Vechicles Are Here - The world is rapidly going to S#@!

    I see your point, you cannot be prosecuted for being offensive, if so the cells would be full. I saw it more as hate crime is an offence and should be reported which is what I believe is the message the Merseyside police were trying to convey. "Typical of fascist regimes, but who is paying...
