Finished off mot work.
Full repipe of the brakes. Clean up rear disks. Clean front caliper slides,
& One side light bulb.
Finished last night was just after one by the time I'd cleared up.
But I can officially state that
You can do the whole job with 2 x25ft rolls of tube and 14 fittings (I used 16 and a female connector as I wasn't on the ball and had to put a joint into one of the front to rear pipes)
If your sensible you can do one front to rear and rh front pipe from one roll and the second f-r , rh front and rear axle pipes from the second roll.
Just checked gov site and Mrs must of had it for retest as it's got a stamp till 16/2/19

Ordered a couple of front tyres from Asda tyres, cheap as. Tyres are just legal, but had fun trekking up the a9 last night in the snow, and not going back down the road without new ones! Beer o’clock till Tuesday!
Any recommendations for headlight bulbs? My dip is darker than a dark thing on a dark night
