Yes if your tester is on the ball he will fail them on angles of disability to the rear, best to have them on the rear or edge of the front arches or in the edges of the rear arches.

See my thread on exactly this issue....

edit:

I have these for sale with the resistor blocks if you're interested, pain in the arse but removable and only a 4mm hole needs drilling.

Thanks for that Chris I just had a look through the IVA manual and I get what your saying now it is the view from looking over the rear wheel arch with the 5dec.

next one is but might sound a bit stupid how do I put photos up as ever time I try it keeps saying my file is to big exceeds the 19.5kb

Right it has been a very long time since my last up date and with the site play up over the weekend I thought I better get one in quickly. Any way my build is still going even thou I had my first night in the garage last night for 2weeks. one week out the garage to keep the misses happy then a nice weeks holiday. Any way I had to modify my rear wheel arches and make then wider. I put them back on and then decided to paint all the aluminium panels witch was going to be an after IVA but I'm glad I done it because I'm well happy with the way it turned out. currently making some trim peace's to go around the cockpit to give it a nice finish.

Well time for a little up date. I had some go intentions to spend the day in the garage yesterday. so I started my first 2 hours by giving the garage a good clean had some launch then the missis was feeling a bit ill so I ended up looking after the kids for the afternoon but I did make it back in in the evening so I've made some nice aluminium finishing trims and I've also made my bake cover / boot lid. I doesn't sound like much but all the finishing bits seem to take forever.

Thanks for the comments I suppose I get a bit of encouragement from everyone on here. The head light I got from CBS I had a look on there site but they don't seam to have them at the moment. I cant quite remember how much I paid.
