Got the wipers fitted. Not totally happy with them. Need to get some proper bezels for the spindles but they will do for now. Dropped the car in at Rivers Speed and Spares here in Wanganui to do the cert. Said they will get another set eyes from Palmy for an extra check and to speed things along. Should hear back before the weekend on how I've done. Fingers crossed.

Cars back home and in bits again after the cert report. Have a list of 17 things to fix. Mostly small things that will be done by next week. Move rear reflectors to edge of guards. Move front indicators further forward. Put a tint strip across top of window. They found the cheap ( off Trade-me ) steering wheel release had too much slop and is a cast item not machined from alloy billet. So I binned that and just screwed the wheel to the boss for now. The main problem will be the bump steer. When setting this up I contacted the LVVTA to ask what maximum allowable was. They told me there is no fixed rule, just try to get it as close to zero as you can get. I ended up with 3.1degrees total top to bottom. 1.7 degrees on the droop, 1.4 degrees on bump But now are being told it HAS to be 0. Certifier told me he had rung the LVVTA and that's what they told him. I wish they would be consistent with their answers to questions.

Contacted LVVTA myself about bumpsteer and was told they look at other 7's that have submitted over the years and would expect the reading to be between 0-5 mm movement. So I will have to look at mine to reduce it a bit
