^^ I thought it was you having the symptoms on the way to hospital.Sounds like shite in the go juice as you said.

It was only a physio appointment, the physio is ducking miracle worker, I have gone from constant neck pain and struggling to sleep, to minimal neck pain and struggling to wake up in a month and only about ten minutes workout a day and few changes to positions at computer at work etc. Might be popping and farting now as just got back from our monthly works curry.

Changed the oil and filter again yesterday. It had only done 3k since the last change but based on the dire state of the oil and filter that came off I thought it was worth doing another one so it’s nice and clean now. It is supposed to take 6 litres of oil but that only gets it half way up the dipstick. That’s a lot of oil.

Finally found a bumper, picking it up Wednesday with any luck. Paint is one thing I am shit at, how much would a very average back street sprayer charge to spray a bumper to around the same colour as a car? It’s silver which I know isn’t the easiest to match.

That isn’t horrendous, would be nice to have the front looking a bit smarter, it’s the only bit that’s really scruffy.

Mismatched coloured panels are for winners.

It’s not mismatched so much as determinedly attempting to return to nature from whence it came.

I am heading off for a replacement in a few minutes, also hoping to pick up a few other bits of use.

It might be the light or the window but that looks decent to me. Dirty maybe but doesn't even look too much of a different shade. Good luck with the collectineering man. It's lucky you happen to have a cool massive estate to pick the new one up in.

It’s peeling terribly and the undercoat is coming through in many places, a picture can tell a thousand lies (as I found out) and that one does, including the plane about to fly into it :-) New one is nearly as rough but a quick spray when the 1000 other jobs are done, or finding someone who do it for sensible money and it will make look a bit cleaner.

And if anyone needs any bits for a v70 the guy I got it off is breaking one and most bits seem cheap enough.
