MOT success

Fenchurch went through her MOT today without any trouble. I received two advisories: oil leak and coolant leak. In fact the coolant system suffers from nothing worse than a radiator cap that weeps slightly when hot (she's used less than 100ml of water in 3400 miles), and the oil leaks are pretty normal for a 1960s British motor (it's an occasional drip from multiple locations, not a constant trickle from a blown seal). I'm not complaining too hard though; a pass is a pass, I'm not obligated to fix the advisories, and they aren't safety defects.
