    Not yet, that's the next step and not that far away, maybe only a couple of weeks! I have a few leaks on the brake lines which need resolving and I'm trying to get the headliner somewhere near complete, after that it should be ready for testing. I've spoken to my local garage and they're happy to do the inspection, I just need to get it booked up. Looking forward to that first drive!

    Hi everyone, its been a busy few weeks, for those who have been watching this space, I have updates!

    The 1st of April seems a long time ago now but for us it was a busy day, after a few final checks we took the Cowmaro for it's first ever run to this place...

    So they could do this...

    And issue me this...

    The Cowmaro passed first time, with no advisories :bowtie: although it still seems surreal having a cert issued on April Fools day!

    So how did it feel?

    It felt awesome! I had my fiancée and my mum in the support vehicle, and dad riding shotgun as I drove to the test station. The car performed perfectly, drove straight and true, kept its cool stuck in traffic and turned more heads than we could count - it felt great!

    It felt even better seeing fresh miles going on the clock after such a long time off the road, the dials were spot on and the brakes performed admirably, the exhaust note wasn't deafening and the suspension felt crisp.

    So did we celebrate when we got home I hear you ask - of course we did, with a nice cup of tea ;)

    That's fantastic!!!! A long time coming, now go out and enjoy hitting the open motorways and scare all the little old ladies with their little cars!

    I did find it amusing that for the model on the Test Certificate, they put 'UNKNOWN'. They should be able to do better than that!
