Well maybe not LOL but a couple of duradots to hold the front on the windscreen & this will be a lot quicker than getting the top on when randomly parked up...
Just got a date for my IVA & its not until 20th April which is a bit disappointing. However I couldn't have started the process much quicker as DVSA require a photo of the complete car before they will press the final green 'book it in' button. If I'd known that I would have put the wheels\ nose cone & bonnet on a bit earlier. That would have saved me a week or so... it only needs to look finished in a photo... my DVSA contact is...'Aaron Ace'... thats got to be a made up name!
But its worth people knowing... don't wait until you finish the car to start the process... Caterham (South) need 6 weeks notice to book in for a PBC (if you are getting them to do the IVA which I am) & apparently this gets longer once the sun comes out as all the existing owners decide to get their cars booked in for a post winter service...
Car is being picked up by Caterham on the 27th March so at least they have plenty of time to rectify all my faults & sort out the 310 upgrade (looking on the positive side...).
Rectified a few issues.
Re did the rear mount, thanks Andrew & Jerry for pointing out! Still seems to be under more side ways tension than I would have expected. I'll get Caterham to check this out... maybe my engine isn't in straight... nervous LOL..
Re drilled the airbox to give me some more rear movement & also added a couple of washers on one side to tilt it a bit. Now lines up with the hole in the bonnet much better! but still not perfect. It seems to me that the rubber hose is 1/4 inch too short & to get it onto the engine properly its pulling the airbox on its mountings. Another job for Mr Caterham.. maybe my engine isn't straight... more nervous laughter...
