Brilliant!

Have you given it any throttle yet?

bit of a rev up , but not a loaded in gear rev , it was a bit faster than i expected just on v little throttle .but it feels like it will take throttle on load no problem ...the almost total lack of brakes made it a littla bit fun just on 1200 rpm !

Without brakes nobody could blame you for not giving it some. I know what you mean, someone with a bit of experience like yourself cal tell if it'll respond with appropriate mixture when you put your foot down. 11/10 on this Rob, brilliant work!

Don't want to bog you down with the boring stuff, but how will you go about MOT etc now?

If you'd read the full story you'd know. He's kept the original taxi chassis as near standard as he can so it still meets the requirements under the points system to not require an IVA test, it will retain the identity of the original taxi. It'll just have a change of body type, engine and fuel. So it will go for a normal MoT but emissions will be based on the age of the engines or chassis, whichever is the earlier. Everything else is pretty much common sense, lights, brakes, etc will need to work but it will still be tested to the age of the chassis so anything that has been introduced since then won't be needed.

Yeh I never did get around to reading the full thread on the other forum, I did however read as far somewhere that it's on a taxi chassis and I know about the MOT rules regards engines / chassis etc though not as well as you or (I strongly suspect!) Rob. Post here does refer to the basics of MOT but also implies the question of what remains to be done before the car will pass one.

woof, missed this quessie ,


i need to get the exhaust system done ,then lights fitted and bonnet and tail finished .emissions should be the 3.5% and 1200 norm i think . i have to apply to dvla for a body change under the 8 points rules ...5 for chassis 2 for axles and 2 for suspension...so that gives me 9 in total .

i am working on the exhaust now .
