I posted this question under subject, "Updated IVA Manual", but wonder if it's worth it's own heading.

I notice that the 'new' IVA manual (on line), Note 4, states, "The wheel guard must cover the full breadth of the tyre".
Is this different from before? We used to attach an extension to wheel guards to cover the whole wheel, esp the protruding centres of wire wheels. Ant comments?

Hi Jack & Duncan,
Thanks for your responses. From your comment on the MSVA Jack it looks like sense has prevailed and the "ridiculous eyebrows" are now history. It would however be good to hear of an IVA pass without the eyebrows.

Peter,
The guard "must cover the full breadth of the tyre" makes no mention of 'wheel or centre-lock spinners' or the old plumb-line dropped from the eyebrow edge to "cover the plan-form" of the car. It might be worth an email to VOSA, although knocking up some ridiculous eyebrows, edged in gripfast is not a huge task. For my SVA test, the eyebrows were glued on with Evostik to the underside of the guard and debonded with solvent afterwards. They have appeared for other tests since.
