So, back to the diesels!

So far I've identified the following to resolve.
  1. Boot handle sticks.
  2. Poor radio reception
  3. Squeeky brakes
  4. Door handles stick open
  5. Air conditioning doesn't chill.
Think I've got the sticky door handles fixed... will tackle the brakes next. Radio reception means taking apart the sunroof motor, which I dont want to tackle right now!

... and what a journey!

I'm a total geek when it comes to courier tracking systems, and this one is quite nice. Plus the distance gives it some interest.

Bit of cut n paste with googlemaps and we have this!

Glad to see she's doing fine.



Will need to get her insured for a day or two to get her down to the MOT station.
