Nice. 🤙It's been a long while since I updated this thread but I have some news. I have just returned today from the MOT centre & I'm pleased to announce it passed
Not having done a lot to it over the last 2 years or so due to extending the garage & garden landscaping I've finally finished the last few odd jobs on it to get it ready.
I'd actually booked it in for yesterday & warned them that it was not exactly a standard Beetle & also that I'd wait around while they looked at it to show how everything worked. Well of course it stumped them completely when I turned up first thing yesterday morning as they hadn't tested anything like this before. I could tell they were regretting taking this one on because some of the things they were saying had me worried that it was never going to pass. I was pretty sure after some research that there wasn't anything that would not pass a recognised MOT but because of their concern & the fact they rang DVSA to ask for guidance & then said can you leave it with us for the rest of the day & perhaps overnight & into tomorrow I didn't hold much hope.
I did spend some time with the actual technician who was going to do the test & politely tried to counter all the areas he had issues with before went home & perhaps that did help a little, who knows.
So off to the post office tomorrow to sort out registering it as a historical vehicle, we'll see how that goes!
