The MOT has rolled round, which means dealing with unglamorous issues, specifically the handbrake. The RHS caliper handbrake mechanism hasn't been effective, so I took it off and gave it back to the chap who modified. He stripped it and gave it back shortly afterwards, pronouncing that it would be fine now. Putting my scepticism aside, I refitted it, bled the system and lo and below I do indeed have a working handbrake! It needs a bit more bleeding, but we are ready for the MOT.
