Re: What have you done for her/him recently?

Did they ever make a Panda with a trip distance mileometer?

aka - the little thing you press to reset that tells you how many miles you went. Useful for working out MPG and so on...

Re: What have you done for her/him recently?

Useful to have a trip meter esp. for me as low fuel light starts flicking on/off when well over 1/4 full on mine...
Towing eyes now fitted on 4x4. Repainting A-frame this weekend and hopefully will get time to sort electrics for use as trailer as this saves using towing board. Will then be ready for next c2c recce runs - Shap to St Bees...
trouble is it's started missing a bit this week, so will need to clean carb jets

That is hugely true. My fuel light comes on even when it's full!

Are you using a DIY trip meter or did yours come with one? Or were you speaking wishfully?

Re: What have you done for her/him recently?

Been filling in a few dents in my car the last couple of days. Both sides are filled in. One side is now painted, just needs to be polished to bring out the shine.
Other side is still being done..

This is the dents filled in:


Primer:


Finished Paint, it looked very similar to the left side:

They got on really well actually. A little slower than what we are used to. But far more luxury and i get the chance to bling this one up a bit. We have done nothing apart from wash and wax Poppi on friday as we done a spur of the moment night away. Poppi quite likes the idea of a younger sister that she can take her under her wing. . . . mirror

Sounds like you have been busy this weekend Kev.

Re: What have you done for her/him recently?

Pressed the Seat Terra into action this afternoon. Went to collect a s/h bonnet from Trowbridge, then on to Shepton Mallet (look em up) to pick up a set of red and black checked Seicento sporting seats. You may remember me mentioning I was going to buy some of these seats from the scrapyard that has my Punto 75 engine, but every time I planned to go and get them, something else would crop up and I couldn't do it. Well good! coz I recently won some on Ebay for less than half the price the scrapyard were going to charge, and they're in even better condition.
The bonnet I picked up has a sound deadening panel on the underside, none of my Pandas have ever had this, was it only fitted to certain models?
Also, this morning, I took the blue CLX to Sainsburys to get a shopping trolley dent , just before Brooklands too! I really hope one of these dent doctor type people can get it out as, up until now, the bodywork was near spotless.
