Yay ! Mot...She passed !

I was a bit concerned over the forthcoming MOT on the old girl, mainly due to paranoia about rear brakes and things like rear suspension bushes.
So we got her on a ramp at work and gave her a going over to see what she would fail on.
Rear brakes were almost useless, so new pads and discs and a pair of rear callipers were fitted and took a chance on front brake hoses as they weren't too bad, and changed the rear wheel bearings as they were getting a whiney.
Well she passed with two advisories on front hoses and another on a wet patch of brake fluid by the resevoir. ( spillage from bleeding the brakes )
Now to fit the Bad Boy straight through tail pipe i've made from a Jaguar V8 S type tailpipe to make a bit more noise.

Every time i see an Alfa Romeo, i raise my hat.

Whenever i see the front of a Gtv i become sexually aroused.
