Talking Happy Days

Yesterday and today actually.
Took the TF for it's MOT and just before the tester started the emissions, I casually mentioned (stupidly) that the car had never failed a test. With a smile he replied, 'Well, you've failed this one' Shocked and stunned, I asked why, as I'd given it a good once over the day before and found all to be in order.
'Rear offside has a small split and bulge in the sidewall' I must admit I hadn't seen it and was a bit put out. Then he said that as he hadn't actually started the test, I could fit a new tyre and book it in again.
So, Blackcircle obliged with two 914's (70 each fitted) and it's just had the test and passed without advisories. Result and a Pint for the tester.
The Sun's out, top's down and off for a celebration jolly!

Going to get the wheels refurbed for the summer. Have to do them one at a time as I need the car.
Had the first one done, very pleased with the results.

Got them done locally in Basingstoke. My issues is, my Tf is my daily driver, so I cannot be without it, and as I only have one spare, it's a "one at a time" process.
Dropped this one off last Monday lunchtime, had it put back on two days later. 66.00. Not cheap, but a good job. What's the point in saving 15 a wheel for a crap job?

Hard top off and hopefully I will get a few days with the top down before sadly selling my TF. See Cars for sale for pics and info etc.

As I'm selling I thought I'd check how it might fair at MOT time (May 2017). Well, what do you know. He passed!! Now has 12m MOT. Of course wouldn't be an MG if he didn't have the last laugh. Also had corroded coolant pipes with quite a bad leak so they are being renewed on Friday. All ready for the new owner
