    IVA retest today

    Had my retest this morning.........I've only gone and passed!

    The snapped handbrake was replaced, tested - passed
    101 decibels was down and passed!
    Rear brakes were 1% out- ran the car on a private road for 1/2 hour last night, it was enough for a 10% improvement on the failure results, passed!

    Arrived at 5:30 for my 08:55 appointment, I was on my way home by 9:15, great guys at Chadderton. Really balanced, explain everything and have a realistic view on the test.

    The one issue was when he was doing 70 mph on the 1st test it seems to have exposed a leak in the radiator!! Anyone got an AK radiator for sale??

    Thanks everyone - now for a paint shop.........
