yeah, people think that VA is more strict because they have annual
inspections, but I pass VA inspection every time... I don't know anyone
that's passed the one-time MD inspection the first time.
I thought I would be smart once and left a frozen prop valve on a car
that I'd bought when I took it in for inspection. That would give the
inspector something to catch, and it was something that I was going to
fix anyway because it was an obvious safety issue.
The inspector didn't flag the prop valve, but *did* fail my windshield
for being "too sandblasted." I didn't fight him on it though because it
was leaking, so I just busted it out myself, POR-15'd the lip, then had
the glass guy come and glue a new one in for me. Since I was in the
groove I R&R'd the rear hatch window and painted that area as well (was
an A2 chassis 16V GTI with the black sticker around the hatch window,
the sticker was all sun damaged and cracked so I took it off and spray
bombed the area flat black, nobody ever noticed! Actually looked pretty
good if I say so myself.)
That car I've had more glass out than an other; after I'd sold it some
kids busted out one of the side windows and I ended up replacing it for
the new owner because she didn't know how to DIY and the shop she took
it to quoted something exorbitant to do the job...
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
