    Not had an mot fail in about 12 years
    Always check it all out myself first
    Dad was a sparky but was auto electrician for his first trade and his best mate was a diesel fitter
    Have done a bit of work with them and picked up a few things
    Like head gasget piston rings and big end bearings on a rs turbo escort in under 2 hours..lol
