    ps. If you are off to Kidderminster remember to check seat base to top seat belt anchorage dimensions.
    I've already failed on that once at Kidderminster, for me it was all about where the seat belts come through the headrests.

    His gauge might be small but if he can't touch it with the head sphere, he shouldn't be measuring it. Problem is, if I remove the rear bumper I've lost fog, reverse light and reflectors.

    No, I'm not "repairing" it, I'm fine tuning its performance.

    No need to cheat when you can comply.

    These will be painted blue to suit the bodyshell.
    I thought about vacuum chroming them - but that costs £

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but these look like they will fail.
    Where your insert meets the edge of the over rider there needs to me a minimum 5mm radius. It looks like and angle from the pics.
    A bit of knock on edging strip would have done the trick.

    but you advocated removal of the overriders and bumpers to pass the test

    I'd appreciate a photo of the 'friendly' IVA overriders
    You know the ones with the smooth back or those with the wee radius

    But you said "Why cheat when you can comply"

    I don't use over riders too often these days.
    The rear nudge bar is good for hanging the extra lights and reflectors from for the test.
    I use the same nudge bar as you have with the flat mounting plates.
    Where the over rider goes I just fit dome nuts

    I also said that I'd NEVER built a Cobra for the current IVA test.

    I presume you have built several for the test or have all of yours had the overriders been fitted after a pass was recorded?
    Can you show the IVA 'friendly' overriders please.
    You know the type- those with less than 1/4" radious.

    and yes....hanging off the rear lights makes sense.
    I'm looking at moving the fog lights a little closer to the overrider but still making sure
    there is 25degress visable. I do hope this is OK with the tester.
