Hey, Ash, did the examiner tell you on what point within the manual that your bolted on roll bar actually failed? I can't see under what basis he could have failed it. As far as I know that design is accepted by race series, the bracket is gusseted so as long as a lock nut is used I can't see on what basis he failed it. It might help others if we knew where in the manual it states that one bolt is not acceptable.
Thanks in advance,
Enoch.

Hi Enoch

Try this....:mad: :mad:

He reckons in an accident the seatbelts, firstly would bend the cross bar then pull out the back stays.........

Leave it to you to comment...:rolleyes:

What's happening with the main hoop when all of this is going on with the cross brace & back stays :confused: :confused:

Given the yeild/shear strength of 2 X M10 8.8 Bolts :eek: In the event of an impact large enough to exert that sort of forces ...... Probably have a lot more to worry about than the roll bar !!?? :rolleyes:

Thats crazy! Its like complaining that the front of the car won't protect you from going nose first off a cliff. If you in a collision with enough force to bend that steel, your proper dead.

well its welded now so there isnt any debate, its never coming off the chassis will snap before the roll bar :D not too worried as it will probably stiffen up the back end a bit.

Nice one Ash :cool:

At the end of the day ..... We can only act on the advice that is freely given by the tester on the day :)

Have you got the new mirrors yet ? .... How's your noise level now you have packed the can !?

Nearly there Ash .... Soon be on the road & looking great :) :)

AshG 2nd March 2010 10:19 AM

got the noise down from 106 to 89db there was naff all wadding in the can when i opened it up.

nope not got them yet, expecting them today. haven't been out to the workshop yet as the outside door bell batteries are dead. I was contemplating running down to the local garage to get some more batteries but knowing my luck they will turn up when im out getting them.

postie usually comes around 11:30ish most days so im gonna stay in the kitchen this morning and have a full works fry up. :D

You have been & made me feel hungry now ..... Sure I can smell bacon frying .... All I had was a slice of toast n a glass of OJ :D :D

That's certainly a marked reduction in the noise level ..... Just goes to show the worth of some decent packing :cool:

well i must admit putting the bonnet on shaved off 5db. completely forgot to put it back on for the actual test so didn't do myself any favours.

so technically i could have passed an sva with the bonnet on at 101db but still wouldn't have been good enough to pass iva.

Enoch 2nd March 2010 11:53 AM

Thanks guys. You have to wonder what sort of remains would be left of your body if you had an accident big enough to do that sort of damage. I guess they are thinking about if you turned the car over but there you go. Sadly there is no point arguing, you just have to do what "the man" says.
Best of luck with the retest, Ash.
