The rear ones won't do anything to protect the sills - they're attached to the plastic rear bumper!

I have carried out a lot of work over the winter on the car and am pleased to report that it passed the mot with flying colours, and with no advisories.

Good news on the MoT, well done!

On another note, i've been wondering who this "SJG" was that was suddenly all over the forum - took a while for the penny to drop! :lol:
Cheers,

Agree with Mark on those pics, congratulations on the pass Simon, 2 years with no advisories. Either your mot tester likes good scotch or your doing something right, :wink:

Nice on the clear MOT.

I get one every year. My tester will tell me if there is an advisory, knowing I'll do it. He's pretty strict too. Only stipulation is that I bring it back for him to see its done
