    Not so Pat, you can drive your car home after a test, even if it fails, you can then only take it back to the garage to get a re-test after the work has been carried out, the Ministry centre's are only for HGV's and PSV's as they now will not allow petrol powered vehicles onto site.
    There are only allowed to check items that they can see without dismantling anything, if the master cylinders are hidden under the engine cover, they are not allowed to remove it, it will only fail on rust or corrosion if the affected area is within 12 inches on a load bearing structure, including seatbelt mountings.
    MOT's are now being changed to four years for brand new vehicles, and will soon be changing to every two years for all other PLG vehicles under the European directive, goods vehicles and PSV will still need to be checked every years

    Go to your local motor body shop supplies, or a crash repair bodyshop and get yourself some "Panel Wipe" it's used in the trade to do exactly what you need to do, they use it to wipe down the vehicle before it gets painted, I use it all the time before doing any top coat after the primer coat, it won't hurt the paint you already have on there,

    Great news Harry, I had eye problems last year and had to stop driving for a while, which was no fun, but thankfully mine are back to normal, although I now have to wear glasses all the time,

    The Softon Plus is a lot smoother than P38 Shay, and not so hard once dry making the sanding process a lot easier, I've used P38 for years for car bodywork, but this one is much nicer to use.
    Did a little more in the hobby room last night before shutting up for the night, got the seats sanded then filled with Bondo, then sanded to shape, the rear tailgate and body got sanded, and while looking for more items that needed modifying, the dashboard came in for a little, removing the molded in radio, making it look like a blanking plate that would have been there if a radio wasn't fitted, the body will need to hole filling where the aerial is supposed to go
