  1. I don't know if I mentioned it earlier in the thread, but the only real problem I have with this car rust-wise is the flying wedges at the back for the lights have rust coming through on their top surface, which I believe is coming through from just being constantly washed by the wheels as it drives along. It does strike me as funny that it was rust free when imported in 2018 and within 5 year of being imported and very few miles it's starting to rust. Good 'ol England.
  2. Ended up trying Hagerty first and ultimately went with them, very smooth process and the guy on the other end of the phone is professional but it also feels like you're speaking to a mate who understands classics. £280 for a year and included RAC breakdown cover, spot on, good price! I only need it a few months while I fix the Jeep (which is close to £400 to insure in comparison and I'm bloody 42 too, oof) so I'll likely cancel when I don't need it anymore, there's only a £25 fee for cancelling. Fantastic.😀
  3. Oof Zel, sorry you had to go through that bullcrap. I've had problems with Adrian Flux in the past, mostly administrative problems and the deadly auto-renew, so I don't go with them anymore. I'll be phoning around once I've had my coffee and woken up a bit, I'll let you guys know who I went with and if they're any good in terms of price. Then the old girl's getting pulled out of the workshop and getting a wash, she's filthy. Just hope the tires are OK, she's a very heavy car and has been sat unmoving for almost three years on the same tires. Should be OK but might be rumbly for a few miles as they reshape.
  4. So glad to see your profile pic on here is still the shitpost from the caddy manual, vulgalour XD Also thanks for the suggestions guys, I'll get on the phone in the morning and try some others. Booked in for MOT on Friday so I've only really got tomorrow to do it.
  5. Blimey trying to get insurance on an import is like pulling teeth. Doesn't help that import plates rarely work on comparison sites so I've had to phone (ugh!) actual human beings and ask. Then specialist import insurers say they're going to call you back with a quote in an hour or two then don't. Happened twice now.
  6. Man. Been a long time since I posted here. The caddy has sat gathering dust for the last three years, but due to my Jeep pissing coolant everywhere (thanks Mercedes block dumb designs) I needed something to get me around while I fix the Jeep over the next few weeks. So the old white whale is back on the road finally! Surprisingly needed two more coolant flushes before the water ran clear, the knackered radiator must have done a real bad job to sludging up the block, but anyway that's done and brand new coolant popped in it. Going to Manchester in it on Monday and Birmingham on the following Friday. It'll either do fine or I'll arrive as an overheated fireball.
