    hi all I’ve had a mixed answers to the dreaded “will it pass a mot with a tubed front” question.

    Has anyone managed to get there car through a mot with a tubed front as I’m finding it impossible to find the parts to put mine back to standard.

    If anyone has managed to get a pass would you mind sharing a few pictures.

    Thanks in advance
    Jay

    Just what I wanted to hear.

    Just wondering what thickness steel you used.
    I’ve seen some made with really thin stuff.

    Yours looks spot on.

    Also does the engine get covered with road grime with half the front arches missing.
    Thanks for the reply
