    I've just had a nose around on Google earth. Can't see a real problem apart from a little red abandoned car with a yellow roof.

    honestly once i hit 4k with this car i'll probably move it along
    !!!!!!!!
    If you are planning on moving it on, why spend so much on it? Yes you are making it better but most buyers wont appreciate or pay for that.
    I fully understand the spend if you were keeping it.

    You planning on tracking it or something? ???
    Love the colour and the fact you've gone to town with the cleaning. I also do this and it seems we are a dying breed on this forum!

    Great and simple cars these.  
    If the rear archs and the bit on the front wings where the bumper mounts are hasn't rusted get something on there now!

    Once you get the screws out, do yourself a favour...don't refit the fuckers, they are just locating screws anyway. Once everything is lined up and bolted in, they aren't necessary.

    I’ve been considering making a topic for progress with my Felicia for a little while, I want to reflect on what’s been done in a more organised fashion compared to flicking through photos on my phone. 
    I’ve had a keen interest on older generation Skoda for quite some time (100series-Facelift Felicia), I bought this 1999 T reg Skoda Felicia mid April. Would of loved to buy the pre-facelift model but sadly most seem to have been scrapped, however mine does come with the 1.3 OHV engine -the same used in Rapid 136’s, albeit slightly modernised and with Siemens multi point  fuel injection producing 68bhp.  

    First pic after a wash. Missing headlight trim, dinged rear OS door, NS fender is a bit bashed in as the original owner must of had a bit of a bash, the whole bumper sits a little lopsided. Hopefully can get the bodywork pulled at some point.

    Wanted to put in the effort to get her running smoothly with some maintenance: new oil & filter, air filter, coolant flush, wipers, bulbs, spark plugs, fuel filter, valve cover gasket etc. 
    Drained the gearbox and refreshed it with new oil, was grinding going in reverse the odd time, and this solved it.
      
    Engine bay needed multiple washes to clean up, looked a right bombsite when I bought it, some neglect was evident from past owner!


    Blue Lagoon Metallic is the colour for anyone wondering.
    Next to do is fit new discs & yellowstuff pads which have been sat in the boot for a couple months, need to file the edge of the pads down a tad and find a way to remove the locking pin screw from the disc.
    The goal is to fitting some modifications,  some stiffer lowering springs and alloy wheels with good tyres. Nothing too crazy. The ride is pretty good, very little body roll, the strut brace seems to work well. A very responsive little motor, town and rural road driving is good fun. 
    Updates to come.

    Place in Greenford, West London I use charges me £100 to tint b pillar back although I have the fronts done too - he does for £120. Also has lifetime warranty so if should ever start peeling/bubbles form under the film just take it straight back to him (i have never had one do that). He has done my Passat, My A6, my Prius and I was going to get the Corolla done beforeI came away but ran out of time. Also want to get the truck done. 
    Trying to tint the windows yourself with the film you can buy just isn't worth the hassle vs the cost to get it done properly. I nip off and have a coffee whilst he's doing mine - Adi Tinting

    I decided to go for a walk to the other side of Bonnybridge last night instead of my usual run up to the hills and away from it.
    I see now why I normally choose the latter, it is a crucially dysfunctional shithole, full of rotten estates interspersed with huge drug dealer houses.
    Never again.
    However, it's where chod goes to die.
    I had to zoom in on this one. Ancient Leyland Freighter, long, long dead. This looks to have been here for decades, with a Scania 2 series for company

    Another Leyland, this time an 8 legged Constructor.

    Scammell Trunker. This has been here for decades as well.

    Sierra next to it another half a one was nearby.

    On the road outside, a slightly more spruce pair.

    And back down the road was this:

    What I photographed doesn't even scratch the surface but I had to remain semi-covert due to the highly dodgy area no doubt full of paranoid people with a lot to hide.
    I'm glad I live in the nice* part of town, all things considered.

    Last time I was in Spain it was free (ie you just got charged the visa exchange rate) to take cash out of Santander cash machines but you got charged a percentage on top for using other cash machines or using your card in shops etc. Nowadays I have a Starling account and just bank transfer money across as I go - no fees at all then.

    I've sent £20. Hopefully it'll cover the postage as well.
