    Will this be ok at MOT?

    Yes some q plates have emissions listed on the v5c , here is an extract from the new manual . The introduction (second quote)deals with q plated vehicles so is as before visual only , but on reading it it is interesting note that pre 98 kit vehicles can also be tested to visual only that may benefit members with older cars

    New MOT rules any one thought of doing this?

    You can appeal against the MOT decision with a VT17 form , however the issue is with what the office has said to you and not the test itself . It may well be worth advising DVSA of this as is shameful and hopefully will get more often visits from their Vehicle Inspector and look into their practices . Of course as noted they cannot seize the vehicle . You did the correct thing by not driving it as the car has a dangerous marker against it and as I understand it a £2500 max fine for driving it although the last time I heard of that happening was when someone was killed by a car with a dangerous marker on it . I carry out 2500 ish tests per year , with the new regs the failure item actually selects that it is dangerous and should not be driven as a tester you cannot alter this . Some items on the new test layout are much better , although some are worse . Unfortunately there will always be the odd minority of garages that abuse the system for their own benefit .

    ZK Carbon Parts

    I've seen pictures of Siltech ones . Not sure how far Neil @Aerodynamix Ltd has got on , I know he has some panel moulds . Of course you can get full FW bodywork in Carbon although this again is not exactly the same as the Factory Grp items .

    European breakdown cover

    Following this one too , I did get Rac cover for the car I took the other year . I'll be looking at doing the same as Matty , with taking the Lancia I think it would be sensible so looking for good cover if anyone has any more suggestions , I too had considered what Aplan offered me but wanted to have an ask about first . Particularly interested if you had a breakdown and how good the cover was .

    What do you mean by rear valance ? , do you mean the euro style one that was sometimes fitted to the v8's . If so it was only ever made in GRP .

    Silvertop 1.8 to ST170 engine swap

    One extra thought I did have was that I used a flywheel off an xr3i efi which was very light, although you could reuse yours , If you use an xr3i efi one you will need to redrill the holes to bolt it on as are slightly larger on a zetec .

    Silvertop 1.8 to ST170 engine swap

    Pretty much as per above . I used a raceline water rail but had to make a front support bracket which was easy as the head casting is different , I used Raceline alternator mountings which were great , was going to use a cheaper one off GBS but my six year old could have made a better one . I used an Omex 710 ecu and tapped the water rail back end for the ecu temp , intake was an st170 inlet with spaced gsxr 1000 throttle bodies with injectors blanked off . If you speak to Selwyn @ harnessingsolutions he made a custom ecu loom and probably still has the file for it , he can supply a new omex ecu too as he used to make the looms for the factory . Its not cheap but works fantastically . Calling chris lowe too he can give good input as did everything himself rather than my off the shelf type build @CL290005
