I reckon someone did a ringading so it could be used on the road, before the rules changed and you could correctly register them as trikes.

Clearly: It's registered as an AC petite, which (to the vast majority of people) it does look similar to.

so someone ringed a bloody invacar LOL (also love the fact that it looks like its lined up for sale on just a regular used car dealerships forecourt.... "Put it in H!")

 

would it be possible to put the ringed invacar back on its original registration/ID?

 

I do wonder what happened to the 2 invacars does anyone know? (sadly I dont think theres an ians bus stop type website for invacars...)

 

especially considering they both looked to be up for sale at one point or another.

If the ID of that one is still visible then you would just apply for a logbook for the correct reg number.
If it's not visible but you know the correct reg then you can find* the chassis number and apply for the correct logbook.

Without knowing one or the other you are stuck.

Chassis number is stamped on the front end of the frame under the access cover.

The challenge however is that quite a few of them - not unlike Routemasters - have been substantially rebuilt during their lives, so may well not have their original engine or body numbers!

I'm sure they'll probably turn up at some point.

alright full write up time :)

 

as ya can prolly guess by now I swung by Zels place again

 

this visit was mostly computer focused

 

I had a fun time playing with some vintage computers iv never had the chance to play with before including an Amiga 1200 and an Acorn A7000 :)

 

but we got up to some car based fun, I had a nice long trip out in the camper van. with me asking a load of questions about it.

 

then eventually we hopped in the Lada and paid Halfords a visit where I got a set of L plates :)

 

twas my first time visiting a halfords too, and first thing I noticed was it smells like sports direct in there (aka like a tube of tennis balls if you dont know what a sports direct smells like...) which im guessing its from all the cheap plastic crap outgassing  :mrgreen:

 

now that I have L plates im 2/3rds of my way to hitting the road for the first time, I just need to figure out the whole insurance aspect of it. (ironically on the train home I noticed theres an advertisement for learner insurance on the back of the pack L plates LOL, but it dosent look to be suitable as its for 30 days cover, like for insuring a parents car (plus the URL on the advert looks to be broken, well done halfords *slow clap*) , what I think im looking for is some sort of day insurance )

 

I do wonder what people thought of someone getting L plates then getting into the passenger side of a Lada :) (potentially one for the inappropriate learners thread if all goes well in the future  :mrgreen: )

 

and speaking of L plates it looks like someone might need to put theirs back on...

I also had a play with this computer but the interface was a bit ruff...  :mrgreen:

so yeah had a fun time once again, and am looking forward to visiting again some time in the future and hopefully get behind the wheel of something :) (sorry for the lack of pictures, im generally an enjoy the moment kind of person :) )

thats because its a Projector bulb from the Late 1960s early 1970s :)

 

I recommend checking out this video for a little more info on the production of this lamp (and its halogen equivalents)

Thats a most excellent film! Really enjoyed watching that.

Several years ago I had a wander round the Thorn/Mazda Factory, Headquarters and Development buildings (http://www.lamptech....- Leicester.htm) in Leicester during demolition.

I always find the amount of research and customised machinery involved in bulb production fascinating!

Oh thats Awesome you got to wander around the Leicester site! indeed its quite fascinating everything that goes into something as "simple" as a regular lightbulb :)

 

id fucking love to have had the chance to do that! sadly the buildings are long gone now :(

 

the only major lamp manufacturing operations left in the UK is the Philips Factory in Hamilton Scotland making SOX (Low pressure sodium) lamps and even then they are stopping production by 2020 IIRC

 

heres another video I figured you may enjoy (I did :) )

well thats me pretty much fucked :(

 

Image from iOS (29).jpg

 

once again its a case of "you physically LOOK fine and are not in a wheel chair so GTFO" been dealing with this bullshit since day 1 :( (I had to deal with this exact crap in school, no one believed me until I collapsed mid school day and couldn't walk for 6 months...)

 

Image from iOS (30).jpg

 

to make matters even worse

 

I had been on JSA just to try and bring some money into the household (as I really like not getting evicted...) but last appointment they basically told me "your too broken for JSA, sign up to ESA" and as such im no longer on JSA (to be fair they aint wrong going to the job centre every 2 weeks has been quite hard on me, my hand was forced to sign up to JSA as I was being told by others in this household, you must bring in some money somehow or shits gonna go south) I do plan on applying for ESA and I do have an un-fit for work note thingy from my GP now.

 

but this is all quite the kick in the gut, and horribly depressing :( im not sure what Im going to do from here on out, I do plan on fighting the PIP thing somehow. and I hope to hell the ESA thing goes to plan otherwise I really dont know what the hell is gonna happen. (even then I think the ESA thing is only a temporary thing? iv never had to deal with this sort of crap before)

 

any who I think thats it for now.

Sadly many people in the same boat at the moment with this, default seems to be to turn all applications down in the first instance so make sure you put in an appeal, maybe seeing if you can get some support with the appeal from Citizens advice or one of your mp's caseworkers, one our our neighbours has got support from our MP's office which has helped resolved some particularly difficult frustrations with government agencies .

As above, it seems standard to reject the first application so appeal.
