Thought it was bright yellow?


Danny you are right, the yellow faded on top of the frame and I wanted it looking tidy for the IVA. It was probably down to UV.

Sorted the under side of the instrument panel, now meets the minimum radius requirement of 19mm.

Got my IAC today (individual approval certificate) which is a right result and now it means I can fit these.

A nice pair of LED headlights, I couldn't fit them pre IVA as the manual states you need to have auto level lights if you have LED or zenon projector lights and also a washer which I have both on the focus ST and that looks like hard work...

The re-test went well and the sun was shining.

Another hurdle jumped through and now I can apply for registration, hope I get my age related plate.

Thanks Rich, all the hard work finally paid off.

The IVA examiner mentioned that once you send the certificate off for registration you won't ever see it again and sometimes our favourite government agency are known to loose them in the system so I will make sure I take a copy, if only for memorabilia.

I was looking at LED lights as I was never that happy with the halogen reflectors. I was surprised that I managed to get them pretty much spot on from lining my daily driver up with the garage door and then replicating the beam pattern on the buggy but not very good at lighting up the road.

Most of the LED lights on ebay are for the 7 inch holders but with a bit of messaging I found someone who had the 5 inch version. Not sure they will pass the MOT without auto level or washer and may have to put the halogens back in but I won't have to worry about that for 3 years as I didn't bother with an MOT on the chassis number and took the gamble and went straight for IVA.

I got them from this seller, just send him a msg as he has loads of stock.
