We used the rollers to do a brake test today.  I was surprised that the MOT tests for front wheel balance only.  Rear wheels out of balance can pass as long as the total braking effort is high enough.

The college do the restoration theatre at the Footman James Classic Car Show.  As a student I got a free ticket great! I went to the show on Friday 16 November.  Bought a welding helmet and a tub of red rubber grease.
