NCT Passed!!!

Postby StewyD32 » Sun Apr 03, 2011 4:30 pm

Flew through the NCT today. Delighted!!! 8).

Although I did find it weird that it was opened on a Sunday.

Does any of the previous owners have their NCT slips for my car. Would be interested to see if there are differences. I got fairly good stats today

Nice one, always good to hear. I think it went through pretty easy too when I had it. The only thing I remember being a bit worried about was emissions, but a bit of e85 petrol did the trick.

Think I passed on the full NCT stats to the other Tom when I sold it, but I'll have a quick look to make sure its not here.

Pretty sure my previous NCT certs went with the car as well. I'll have a dig around in any case.

Yeah do... thanks guys. I put a nice bit of work into her since I bought her,and still have a few little things to do but so far so good

It's always good to hear that a car of 16 years can breeze through a NCT test. I was getting worried as there were 4 people in front of me in newer cars and all failed :smt003.

Never had the NCT bit Stew, great that it passed. Going well for you?
Looks great with the reconditioned alloys.

Thanks cullen. I like the alloys and really think they suit it. It might be the case where you either like or hate that kinda thing.
The car is going fine there were one or two small things which were easily fixed. The new gearbox was put in a few days after buying it off you and is perfect. I brought it to a specialist in Dublin and he said the whole thins was fecked and didn't know how it was so easy to get into first to fifth and not just reverse not working. I still have the sunroof to do and that's me done. I bought another sunroof of Seb months ago but never fitted it yet. :mrgreen:

Did you get yourself another car in the end?
