sorry for the delay, only just spotted this thread , yes I had a towbar, in fact most of it is still there, trouble is now the MOT includes testing etc of tow bars, so I flushed mine off, but the steel is still there. snowy has a tow bar come spare wheel carrier, which is very good . Piccies are on here somewhere. I'll try and find my pictures and post.

Get a more understanding tester - I have not bothered reading up to see if its actually retrospective to older cars - However mine just breezed through with the electric to the ball and socket curled up in the spare wheel well.

I should have said "I jumped before I was pushed" with the MOT test. I tow a large trailer with my Espace for my business and that tow bar was tested thoroughly so I just couldn't be "aggroed" with explaining a home built tow bar.
