A fair amount of advisories but as the tester said it is all consumable stuff such as tyres, anti roll bar bushes etc.

29 advisories! That must be a new record for Autoshite. It goes to show how different MOT testers are in mentality. I get the feeling with some testers most of those advisories would not be on the list. What is "Front valve stem slightly damaged"?

I assume it is a tyre valve and the rubber stem is damaged

That's a peppy looking MX5 there. Pity the AVO was too far gone. Must say, that reg would be a keeper here, because "avo" means "cabrio" in the local lingo.

 

Those MOT advisories you folks in GB need to put up with, tho.. I mean... "front valve stem slightly damaged"? Are you kidding me? That they would have time to gawk at someones tire stems just boggles the mind.

I cant really fault the guys there. It failed on headlight adjustment and wipers. I went to get the wipers and they adjusted the headlamp and so it was a pass. 

 

He showed me most of the advisories and I cant really quibble. It looks bad but probably £120 worth of bits to fix it all. Currently the car stands me £342 for an MX5 with an MOT. 

 

 

 

To do list on BAL is 

 

Tyres 

LSD fitted 

Brakes overhaul - new pipes, flexis, uprated calipers, disc and pads 

New drop links all round 

421 exhaust and decat 

Coilovers 

Rollcage

Balljoints

Fit best parts from AVO including drivers seat, wing mirrors, handbrake lever cover and gearshift gator

Track rod ends

Swap over hoods (although contemplating a brand new one) 

Spare key and immobilizer 

Proper alignment 

Securely fit the battery 

Clean and underseal the car 

Fix PAS leak 

Fix water leak

Service the car 

Delete charcoal cannister

Do the 10 degree mod 

Overhaul cooling system including swapping over silicon hoses

 

 

On the longer list of things I would like to do 

 

Chassis protector rails 

Wide band sensor

Play with Ardiuno as engine management tool 

Hard top for winter

Create a luggage rack for spare track tyres

What do you do when waiting for a load of tyres to be collected? Well fiddle with your other car.

First off the right rear light is faded on BAL. I kept the one from AVO so simple job of swapping them over
1e9d901e39fcbdb4858ef552c046be9f.jpgf2d6e2339cfcc053181314bc6eef5133.jpg

Much better. Both the seals are shot so may see if I can order new ones

Then onto wing mirrors. The ones on the car mean that you can't really see anything behind you. e20009c40a990a3cd672ca6c8e60394c.jpg

Some screws out
7ce92fbc090eb3a963ea9a4ef93bd43a.jpg

And jobs a good un

At that point I was a bit too cold to continue.

Next plans are to swap over the door cards and seats once the snow has melted.

The onto the exhaust. New studs and bolts been ordered for the manifold.

Looking at options for the advisories - a full set of all the bushes I need in poly is about £100 so may go down that route to start with.


Insurance has been cancelled on the car within the two weeks meaning that it cost £25 for 10 days cover. Bargainous

Looks like it was done before.

The head was really well wrapped so I can't see it had happened in transit.

It's been assembled well with engine prep grease all on the cam. New head bolts, gaskets, cam gaskets and timing belt then with professional help it should all go together.


Anyone want to guess what an mx5 sans engine gets over the weighbridge?

I'd just rip that immobiliser out & throw it over the hedge.

 

It'll have about six wires going back to the car's loom. Two for the fuel pump, two for the starter & two (or more) for the indicators. The rest should be to the siren, power etc. Just trace them back & reconnect the matching colour wires for the fuel pump & starter. The others will probably just be bridged on (in a scotchlock kinda way but solder I'd hope) so just need taking off.

 

A properly done install will mean you need to add some wire to bridge the gap, as the install instructions say to cut a piece out of the fuel pump & starter wiring so it can't just be bypassed by joining them. But I've never seen a car or bike where that's actually been done.

Anyone want to guess what an mx5 sans engine and half the shell missing due to rot gets over the weighbridge?

 

Asked if it's on there because the scales can't see it.

The real question is "was AVO slower over the weighbridge with no engine/box/running gear than you in an auto mx5"?
