    I always assumed you could drive an MOT failure home or to a garage for repair in England Pat? Maybe this is something new.
     
    We have the NCT (National Car Test) for years now here, much the same as the MOT, but you have to bring the jam jar to Official test centres, while you can get your MOT almost anywhere in the UK and at short notice, we have to book for weeks in advance.

    I tried to send you a video, looked like it worked, but it's not anywhere in PM's.

    It took me a whole year to convince Geoff to do a Muscle car, there was a triple build elsewhere with myself Geoff and Angelo, it was great fun.
     
    I'll eventually get him to make a Rod, probably a T bucket.....

    Nice to see the guys on the Podium dedicating the race to him today.

    It's looking good JC.

    That one is dreadful JC!
    I had to put big wheels on it. LOL

    Thanks JC, I always thought that was curbside for some reason.
     
    Even with the US bumpers and head lights it looks good.
     
    Has anyone got a spare one for swop/trade etc?

    Is that kit curbside JC?

    Or just get some Isopon P38 at the local motor factor Pat.
    It's good stuff, dries in 15 minutes and sands down very well.
     
    Looking good there Geoff.

    Rubbing alcohol is called Surgical Spirit over here Gary, I think you can buy it in a chemist/pharmacy shop, I forgot to ask the last time I was in, I think it's 70% alcohol.

    I'm assuming you're using Halfords or Holts rattle cans or similar? You'll need to get all the wax off it before you clear it.
    Now, I never had to do it but hot water and Fairy liquid and an old toothbrush should shift it I'd imagine.
    I'd spoon test everything you've already done, try to get it off and see how you get on.
    Maybe Geoff knows, if he's looking in.

    Good information too.

    The valve covers on the 'Rover' V8 aren't at an angle like that though, that's why I ask.
    I'll have a look for that site on the Buick/Rover 3.5 litre engine. I'm not sure if it's still available, the pics I saw looked very nice for white metal.
