Today again work has taken a back seat to cars!
Put a pint of water in the Volvo V70 XC and the low level warning light has gone out, it has been driven about 40 miles today and has not come back on but I have not checked it yet.
Took the Mercedes 200TE to the garage to have its non starting and breaking down sorted, it ran perfectly so they asked me how were they going to fix a fault that was not there? Easy I said drive it around take it shopping and it will let you down! Oh was the reply you are happy for us to break down, yes I said and then you wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think I am a liar!
Collected the 2CV, aerial repaired, oil changed, welding done drives very well.
The new front tyres on the Audi convertible were feathering after only 1500 miles so I had the tracking done, toeing in 7Ã‚Âº so I hope that sorts it out.
My local garage fitted the new tyres I bought on the internet to my Citroen GS, I thought about selling the old ones on as they had reasonable tread, then I remembered I bought myself new one because I did not trust the old ones. I left them at the garage to dispose of.
Last job was a hand car wash of the 2CV with a warning about where he pointed his jet hose! I was impressed that one of them got it and drove Dolly to the drying bay with no problem.
