    Does not matter under the law. If it is red, has no tape, and lets through no white light, it flies.

    It was a piece of non-matching red plastic, because the original piece was naturally gone. So what.....

      Reject vehicle if:
      -Not equipped with the required lights or reflector
      -A light or reflector is obstructed
      -A required light fails to function properly
      -A light, reflector or electrical switch is not securely mounted
      -A light or reflector shows color contrary to law
      -Wiring or electrical connectors are defective
      -A lens is missing, incorrectly installed, repaired with tape or broken to the extent that moisture or contamination could enter the reflective area or light socket
      -High beam indicator does not function properly
      -Physical damage is present that would obviously cause a headlight beam to be either above or below horizontal or to the left or right of vertical
      -A taillight or reflector is not mounted in the prescribed area


      They probably consider non-matching red plastic either "missing" or "incorrectly installed".

        No doubt.

        It is still bull crap.

        They also demanded that some wheel bearings be replaced. The dealer said "Whaaaaaat?" and passed it as it was.

          Was it the drivers side or passengers side tail light?

          • I once went to pick up my MG after the test and they said the clutch had completely failed during the test so it was undrivable, but it passed as that was not included in the test. Another tester liked to tell new customers there was a hole in the exhaust - at the end.
            It is a racket in the UK for job creation in the garage that does the test as a re-test is cheaper (by regulation) if not removed from the premises. There is only a 1 month window for the test to be done so repair must be done in that time which can be a problem sometimes finding a welder in London with spare capacity. In some countries, eg S Korea it is illegal to do your own repairs.

                  • Nice job on the tank Andy. Nothing like tig when you're welding beer cans.

                    Is that going into the lightweight blue F250?

                        Anymore of your handiwork in the car?

                            Willy, the car will be here this winter yet for plumbing. I'll post some pics. I am pretty sure it is a 67 nova.

                            • Spent the day machining a pile of aluminum parts for a 5 litre hydroplane. Nothing exciting, just a lot of corners to radius and clearance holes.This is to replace what I did last Spring as the boat was wrecked at the start of the first race of the season.

                              • I did some more work on my truck today:


                                Most of the floor still seems pretty solid, but it seems that the underside of the carpeting is felt, which is wet, and probably saturated with road salt that may have gotten in when some of the floor rotted out. Most of the rust damage was this raised metal piece that supported the front of the seats:


                                I drilled out the bolt that was for the rear seat support that had rusted away. There seems to be good metal where the bolt is threaded in.


                                I think I will remove the carpeting, perhaps cutting away the lower sections that seem to be soaked with salt water, and then adding good metal as needed to seal the floor and keep salt water from getting in again. I'm not sure if I'll replace the carpet with new all-weather carpet material, or maybe some kind of rubber or plastic. Possibly spray-on bedliner?
