Cadillac now MOTed, I will tax it 1st April.

 

The garage still have it and are trying to get rear brake pads for it because they estimate only another 5,000 miles life, well that 10 years at our mileage!

It's not yet confirmed but if the upholsterer returns the drivers seat on time I hope to make an appearance in the scruffy Saab. Polishing is not on the agenda though!

I'll stay logged in on my phone that day, I'll check this thread when I leave work make sure things are still going ahead or you've not dispersed. Think the earliest I'll be able to get down is 2pm.

Huggy Bear up for sale.

 

Oh that news!   Don't worry.  He isn't advertised anywhere else at the moment so I think it's pretty unlikely he will sell in the next week.  If you want something to worry about, worry about my health.  There is a question mark over whether I'll be fit to drive him 400 miles each way!

I’m off work tomorrow too, weather report reckons dry so tomorrow is the day for dusting off the Mercury and giving it a clean in preparation. I’ll probably need the whole day!

Shit me! Half the day down and I’m half way through the clean!
It’s been washed and dried, interior has been dusted down and given a buff up with cockpit shine and the glass all cleaned.
This afternoon shall see the T-cut out on a few patches followed by a thorough wax and buff up. Then the chrome needs doing...

It takes frigging ages cleaning this thing!
