    I spoke with him a few months ago quite a bit and he has loads of spares for safrane as he has a a mk1 safrane 3.0 RXE. I believe he still has both front fog lights.

    I mostly just drove it till the MOT ran out, I did have plans to get the garage to fix it ready for sale (as it was just too complicated and scary for me) but lockdown put that on pause then Steve offered to buy it as it stood.
    The lower dash is off as when Steve was ready to take it the bonnet release wouldn't work.  I had to attack it with pliers to give it a really hard pull to release which did a bit of damage.  No time to get parts so left the cover off.  I did put a lot of oil and grease on the catches so try and prevent a repeat.

    A old girlfriend had one brand new on pcp. It was a purple base model on an R plate.
    I remember the day she got it she took me out for a drive..... 90mph down the bypass!
    Shortly after she got  a new job and the company coverd the payments instead of arranging her a company car.
    In 3 years and 70 odd thousand miles the only maintenance it ever got was when I changed the pads because " it sounds like a spaceship". Metal to metal both sides. I might have put some new speakers in it too - priorities right?
    When it went back at 3 years old the penalties were horrendous,  like half the cost of the car,  mainly because it was double the mileage allowance, no service history, bald tyres and generally trashed.
    Luckily for her the company covered that too.

    Sheffield way - correct!
    Had a strange stroke of luck yesterday when I randomly happened to search eBay - a new old stock Nissens Radiator - the exact one I'm looking for. Purchased in the early 80's but never used or even left the box!

    Was up for £190, I got it for £130 after chatting with the seller. I honestly cannot believe my luck.
    For anyone interested, on my hunt I found the part number and every other alternative/other brand part number for the rad here - and I also found someone who can actually supply one in Lithuania here . I asked them on Facebook if it's actually in stock (comes to 145EU or so after shipping) - and they said technically yes - but they're checking on Monday with regards to shipping and Brexit - figure it's good to know for other 300 series owners.
    Still - really can't believe that this new old stock one even existed.

    Might well be interested if er'indoors hasn't got a caravan trip planned. Be a nice run from Leicester in the Renault 25. Assuming that'd be an acceptable conveyance to turn up in.

    Finally got the new Speedo drive in the post. Definitely needed replacing based on the wear. I only dropped the new one into the depths of the gearbox three times trying to fit it and the new cable... Lucky I bought a claw tool!

    Two litres of fresh SAE 80 hypoid gear oil. I even went for the good stuff!

    Also fitted a cigarette lighter so I can charge my phone on the long trip. Wiring it straight to the battery is fine right?

    Found a grim hand wipe in the back of the glovebox...
