    N19 got a reaction from BorniteIdentity in N19's fleet - a productive day, what is this madness?!   
    This is definitely a slow and steady job.
    The glamour of life at 32 - when a wild night out means, err, pulling the radiator out of a Mondeo at quarter to eleven at night.
    The collapsing on the bottom is pretty impressive...
    Two of the mounting bolts sheared off in the hole, so that's to be drilled out tomorrow. New nuts and bolts all round I think. M5... Oddly small.

    Bearings are at the garage being pressed in so in the meantime I spent lunch time clocking my NOS Speedo ready for fitting. Will be nice not to hear the incessant ticking of the Speedo. Not sure if I mentioned it but the odometer also packed up on the trip too just as it was turning over to 283k so I've added the distance between odometer failure and wheel bearing collapse. I wouldn't want to miss out on that mileage of such a trip!

    Not common to see someone deliberately winding a clock forward to add miles to it... but then, this is no ordinary car!

    Left the lights on all day. One very flat Mondeo.

    This week began with a need to send photos of the Capri to the insurers for the agreed value. You can tell the difference between the re-covered front seats and the original rear seats in this picture... although I'd like to get the rear ones done one day, money prohibits for now.

     
    The Mondeo returned to daily duties this week, the heated windscreen and heated seats being very useful in this cold snap.  An eye kept on the coolant level, a top up here and there, and a nipped up jubilee clip and it seems to be good following the rad swap. Should be doing a few longer runs in the coming months to up north and to the west, which will definitely be good - it's an ideal car for long journeys. MPG wise, it hits 32-35 on the motorway but around town more like 23. Perfect* for outer London...

    We’ll, after the warm welcome on the new members thread, thought I’d have a go at this…
    Fact is, both cars need work but are entirely useable and have both been out today on the fruitless hunt for E5 pez locally.

     
    I’ll add more about the Senators recommissioning work later and just add a couple more pics for now

    None of your posh 24V cow skin here mate, just blue, blue and more blue!
    Meanwhile, 15 years prior to 1992, interiors looked like this
    And you’d be following this in the outside lane
    Seems a lot of progress in a short time

    The Capri will prove handy - on occasion I want to pop just inside the ULEZ (eg to Muswell Hill or thereabouts) and it'll be the only fleet member allowed in.

    You have to laugh at the fact that the fuel injected, cat fitted Mondeo in the background is banned, but the Capri running carbs, points, condenser etc is allowed...

    In inner London, yes. My commute from Barnet to Wembley takes me 30-35 minutes Vs the 75 minutes on the bus/tube. And that's only at specific times because one of the buses is ridiculously infrequent, every 30 minutes.
    If I'm going into central, definitely get the bus or tube.
