    So close at IVA

    Just back from my IVA today and sadly no first pass for me.
    The positives were "everything" bar one thing passed, so I'm pleased about that and the guy at the IVA centre in Southampton was brilliant, really helpful and made the morning a lot less stressful than I was feeling.

    So the really really REALLY annoying bit was the speedo sensor, it had snapped in half about 1 mile from the centre! I checked the calibration and all seemed fine all the way there, 20 miles no problems and then last mile the needle went haywire and when we jacked the car up to check, I went to adjust it thinking some vibrations might have shook it loose only to fine half of it in my hand gutted. So annoying, so close

    Booking retest tomorrow, wording new speedo sensor today!

    Good job on the build and Iva prep. Really unlucky but you’re on the verge of success. Good luck next time.
