Statutory plate

Gentlemen,
thoughts are turning to some final points on the build (I hope!) I don't have any method of measuring the various weights required i.e. laden mass of vehicle and front and rear axles. It's an Ace with 2.5 Triumph engine has anyone done this for their's?

someone to check the car for IVA compliance
