    Oh, completely not LEZ. Barely passed the emmission test! It did get a run through london a couple of years back, which was fun.
    I did! The Gail Tilsley's tits episode traumatized me so badly I didn't even look here for ages. It seems much better now!
     
    Sadly, that's about weight. 5.9 puts you in the private HGV classes, which haven't been put up for ages. 3.5 makes mine PLG and it goes up every year. I can't even put a crane on the back and avoid the MoT!

    I went to my local post office this morning armed with just a temporary cover note and a V5C, the old boy said their system had recently all changed due to the closure of the local DVLA offices and that he'll give it a try, luckily the computer said yes and I'm now the proud owner of 6 months road tax, happy days!

    There are still some POs that refuse a printed-out insurance e-certificate, despite the very clear print that says: "This document can be printed out and used to tax the vehicle".
     
    Most dumbass gov't policies just mildly annoy me, but closing the DVLA offices has seriously boiled my urine.

    Not sure, gentlemen. If it was a hand-painted, MoT-less Rialto estate with a blowup doll in the back, I would certainly cheer.
     
    But not for a proper Supervan, especially one that appeared reasonably original and looked after, despite the hideous Trotterisation.

    Done a bit on this tonight. Got the old engine out using just a wanky trolly jack from machine mart!!! I made the mistake of leaving the alternator on the old engine as it came out which made it a right awkward sod.
     
     

     
    best get this lot tidied up fairly soon or it will no doubt disappear, I saw a white transit driving very slowly round the streets a couple of weeks back, loked it up and not tax or insurance surprise surprise. Wankers!
     

     
    Anyway hopefully i'll get the new engine in on Sunday all being well, probably not get it running but if I can get it in, on its wheels with the driveshafts etc connected i'll be on the home straight! Also I will need the BIG ASS trolley jack from down the garage i think.
