MOT Passed!
#1
Big Grin 
Car passed it's MOT today after a month off the road- failed first time round and it took me longer than expected to get work done- front discs/pads easy once I'd got the knackered torx bolts out, but rear brake pipe was a pain. Unions rounded off everywhere so ended up replacing pipe to slave cylinder, flexi pipe and pipe to load compensator, which had snapped spring and was seized so freed that off too!

I got garage to do front wheel bearing as think you need a press to do that.

Anyway, a year's motoring for less than £200 can't be bad! Plus the Bloke at the garage said I'd done a good job with the brake pipe haha! I nearly asked for a "well done" sticker haha!

MOT time again for me, dropped it off yesterday and picked it up a couple of hours later expecting to have something to do for the rest of the day but it passed. Just one advisory about the rusty exhaust, I might cut the end square or stick a pipe on it but not that bothered really. Happy day.
So where does this bit go then ?

Is there a "good" way of doing a brake pipe? I thought there was just the right way (working) and a dangerous way (not working)!

Well done though - I wouldn't dare DIY the brakes myself.

No I wasn't sure about a "good" way either! Think he meant I'd routed it right, as it failed on the pipe rubbing the suspension arm. Brakes were dead easy- bleeding the system can be a pain but luckily the cap on my Easibleed kit fitted the master cylinder so that made it simple. Who'd have thought a Berlingo had the same size master cylinder cap as a classic Mini?

Good feeling when you know it's got straight through though, isn't it?
