Postie has been- my boot liner and boot struts have arrived so spent a bit of time in the garage getting the car ready for going back on the road.

Itís nice having a boot that doesnít clunk me in the head when itís open, and was surprisingly easy to install.
Took the battery out, even though itís been on a constant trickle charge all winter, it struggled to start so I took it out and am giving it a top up.
Maybe re tax it next week if the weather gets better.

Lovely fresh oil and filter for going back on the road. Car hasnít done many miles since last service (probably around 100 or so) but managed to pickup the oil and filter for about £20 from shop 4 parts so for the sake of half an hour, Iíll just change it, as itís been sitting about and will probably have condensation etc in the oil.

Also picked up a new keyring, listed as a genuine fiat accessory but there was no part number so unsure

Two bits of bad news-

Firstly, whilst looking for a Mk1 Punto breaking local to me, I come across my old mk2b in the scrappyís for breaking.
https://www.u-pull-it.co.uk/breaker-...005/29739418-0

I am a bit upset, I bought the car brand new and had it for around 8 years, went through a few girlfriends with it, and loved that car, sold it when I bought my abarth. I get emotionally attached and found myself checking up on it every year at mot time. I sort of had a feeling it wasnít good when it failed itís mot in March.

Secondly, I gave the car itís first wash of the year- I knew the rear drivers arch had a few bubbles on it but itís getting worse- Iíll need to see to it before it becomes a major repair.

However, this is the first pic I have of both my beloved Fiatís together and freshly detailed

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

Iím sure a good bodyshop would be able to do the repair , shame about the mk2 you can get attached to your old cars , I had a mk 2 escort years ago that I used to check up on after I sold it , I recently found a guy local to me still has it sadly Iíd have to sell the gt and get a large loan to buy it back now

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

I was gutted when I checked up on my 1st car, and found it had been scrapped. I used to check on my parents old mk2, and was saddened when that died last year, taking 8.5 years of memories (September 2005-15 April 2014) to the scrapyard with it.

On a more positive note, my own mk2b is still very much plodding on: I saw it coming the other way whilst on my travels last month, and then saw it driving through my village the next day: I was absolutely over the moon!!

Re: My exploit yellow 75 elx

Just looked at the mk2b's fail points, nothing particularly scary there, some inner arch work and tidying of the subframe etc would have seen it on the road for years to come. Sadly just been thrown away the second someones seen the word "corrosion".
