I didn't buy the roof bars, I inherited them from my father and donated them to the Sierra at popular request...or maybe not. I’ll gladly have them back if you don't want them.
I have to say that I prefer the “sans bars” look, and it’s a lot LOT quieter at 65mph - especially with the windows down.
I drove the car the 100 mile round trip to work today, which it did with aplomb. I had to stick about a litre of oil in it which has disappeared over the course of about 4,000 miles. That’s fair enough, especially when you consider most of it is on my garage floor. It’s still using/losing water too. Can you put a dye in coolant to help trace where a bloody leak is? I’ve got a new water pump, radiator and two hoses to fit - but none of them look ill. The interior is also dry, leading me to think it’s not the (admittedly blocked) matrix.
I’ve had to remove the air intake pipe. It was very loose, and I can’t get enough purchase with zip ties to make it stick. My concern is that it might fall off onto a moving belt or hot engine, so I need to buy another.
I’m chuffed that the car successfully completed the journey. Ashamedly it only did 650 miles last year, so more use required.
I’m going to take it to the cricket club tonight. You know, lower the tone a bit.
