Many thanks for all the helpful advice. IVA test awaited. I think I will need to buy collapsible boss and the see if I can pick up a cheap compliant wheel in EBay to suit boss. Interested in the cherished plate idea - thank you.
Cheers. Jerry

Just a suggestion, in case you get a similar experience to me:
Before the actual day of the test can i suggest you test your lights with Main beam, High Beam, Hazards, fog and reverse light all active and wipers on.
That's what my IVA man wanted. A fair test but not what i was expecting, having successfully tested each circuit individually but not simultaineously, and needless to say, didn''t pass that one, suspect blown fuse.

Good point and that test will also highlight any poor earthing as one or more will be a bit dimmer.

Hi Jerry,

I'm afraid I can't help you much regarding IVA, but I will soon become your nearest 289 Register neighbour when I move to Litton in a couple of weeks time.

Good luck with the IVA. And, if you think you might need an extra pair of hands at all, just let me know and I can pop over.
