    bit of an update:
    after the decidedly ashitarse paint reaction i took all affected areas to bare metal, and used upol acid etch, along with  new expensive primer, i then keyed the primer with 800,and water, dried it for  a day, then applied 4 coats of base, 1 as a dust then progreessively wetter, followed by 4 coats of laquer. 20 min dry time between, out of a can. heres the result. i havent polished or de nibbed or anything, this is out the can.

    its not perfect - but the small pin holes are covered by the screen seal and trims and will have stikaflex applied also. yeah its a bit wibbly but m no body guy.
    screen fitter is booked for next week, $200 supplied and fitted top tint bad boy.
    cambelt, plugs and wipers arrived. so all systems go. id like to have it on the road by jan.... big ask.....

    I'd say just stupid ugly crossover / SUV / compromised piles of shit / whatever you want to call them, in general.
    Why do vehicles that are both scream-out-loud ugly and also massively impractical sell like fucking hot cakes?! People are stupid. I do sometimes think the human race deserves its inevitable extinction caused by its own hubris. The C-HR is four-wheeled evidence of that.
    The other day, outside St Abbs, I was walking along a path next to a narrow twisty little road. A grey C-HR on personal plates pulled up and stopped in the road. No hazards, nothing. The two doddery old fuckwits in the front were fannying about with the sat nav or whatever. They sat there for ages on a narrow road with poor visibility with no hazards on. It's not as if they could have pulled into the clearly visible car park about 100 yards further along to do that. No, because that would require one iota of intelligence. That iota of intelligence was already evidently absent by the fact they were driving a C-HR in the first place. My eyes were almost burning holes through the body panels as I walked past.
    Every time I see one it's driven incredibly badly, to the point you almost just want to give up driving knowing that other people can get away with driving so badly. I guess they're doing their best, judging by how little visibility it must have.
    I'm not a fan of them, it must be said.
    The styling of the C-HR, to me, looks like Toyota looked at the Nissan Juke and said "Yes! More. More of everything. More ugly, more compromised visibility, more general dumbfuckery."

    When I was 19 or so I drove a wreck of a Mk1 Ford Ka.  My parents garage joined onto a lot of rented garages and we rented one of them for my car.  Coming home at midnight-ish from college one day (I'd been running sound for an evening show) a Police car with two youngish coppers followed me for a good half mile, turned into the garages with me and then decided to block me off my parking their car directly behind my garage.  Probably presuming I was a dealer or similar and looking for an easy collar.
    I got out.  'Hello Officer, is there anything I can help you with?'  Well, as anybody that has met me knows, my voice matches my posh upbringing and I don't sound like I'm from the rough end of Northfleet.  This surprised them.  'Erm.  Yes.  Erm.  Well.  Erm.  Yes.  Your light there is smashed'.  'Yes.  I know.  It's a foglight and as I'm sure you know, it's not a legal requirement.' 'Ok.  Thank you.'
    And they just drove off.
    I laughed like a drain for a full minute afterwards.  It was the look of disappointment on their faces when I first opened my mouth that did it.

    Just after Shitefest 18 the Bentley went to Lemans but on the way back developed a fault in the central locking meaning only the nearside rear door would open. It is not very elegant entering a Bentley by the rear door then climbing over the seats, so it was parked in the shed awaiting its turn. Due to a little* clutter in the shed, it went in on an angle and the wedge shaped bit of floor became the £it will be fine there for 5 minutes" pile. As I recently bought some wheel skates, I decided to tidy the pile and straighten the car, which should free some space by my workbench when I move another couple of Saabs.
    Spent the day moving stuff and lifted the rear wheels. Went to lift the front nearside and realised I had left the steering on full lock so needed to straighten the wheels. I had left the windows down but due to the proximity of a Saab straightening the wheels with no PAS would have meant clambering over the seats.  Despite sitting for over 2 years, decided to see if it would start to get the PAS working. Switched the (OE) battery isolator on, reached through the window and turned the key. Turned over half a dozen times before starting and settling down to a smooth idle. A broom handle to the throttle pedal from the NSR door meant it could be revved. A bit of condensation from the exhaust was to be expected.......

    Straightened the wheels and left it to warm up. Of course, a 6.75 litre turbocharged V8 makes signifivant fumes so it filled my shed, so decided to call it a day for today and will probably* move it tomorrow.
