GENERAL CHAT / Re: Mot excempt for vehicles 40years or older come may 2018 with some rules

^^^ I agree with you, I doubt the wisdom of removing the MOT requirement on these older vehicles, mine included. More respondents to the consultation objected than agreed but the DfT appear to be going ahead with it. Odd.
 As the "system" accepts tests conducted on young vehicles for prohibition clearances, it also accepts tests being conducted early ie where the owner wishes to move the test date for their own reasons, there is nothing to stop an owner having a test carried out at any interval he wishes. This then implies that the owner of an age exempt vehicle can request & pay for an MOT if he so wishes for any age of vehicle. There are obviously age related test standards to be applied but the Tester will be well aware of them. There is no justification for knowingly using an unroad-worthy vehicle on a public road except under very limited circumstances.                                                                                                                     I must emphasize the above is my personal opinion.

^^^^ I'm told by S2C members with pre 1960 Series 2s that the specialist Classic Insurance companies don't require MOTs for road-going vehicles currently. I can also confirm that my 1967 Ambulance has been SORN for the last 4 years and Adrian Flux insured it on the spot, 63 for a years insurance, mileage limited to 3000, so there must be some expectation that it will hit the tarmac at some point.

Will "The system" allow a vehicle to be tested if it does not need an MOT or would it just be effectively an Inspection by the garage using the MOT criteria ? How would that be recorded, if at all ?

I didn't attend, but, my brother did.  He's been to the two Scottish land Rover shows and says that this is better.  I'm guessing that any additional events have to be a good thing though?

TECHNICAL CHAT / Aluminium Welding ?
« Last post by genem on September 19, 2017, 02:02:33 PM »
I've a set of "Wolf" doortops on the lightweight but one has developed a crack on the frame, nice straight line about an inch and a bit long.

Can anyone help with getting it welded up ? As it stands the frame wobbles and rattles so the problem is just going to get worse.  If some one could weld it up or point me towards a commercial welder willing to fire up the kit for a job this small I'd be more than chuffed.
