N19 Posted April 23, 2022 Author Share Posted April 23, 2022 I'm back darn sarf now after a nice few days in Edinburgh. I have the utmost respect for people who drive professionally over long distances - it takes it out of you! I set off from Edinburgh at 6am and got into London just after 2. Stopped a couple of times for rest and food. 40.5mpg. Yesterday I managed to spray paint the inside of the Mondeo's back window...

I also have white streaks in my hair. the worst is now off with a bit of acetone and much polishing, although the back bumper now looks a bit like a decorator's stereotypical estate. A bit more clean up should see to that. I borrowed a friend's trailer to try out my towing skills in controlled conditions. Didn't do too badly, although it was quite surreal as someone who's never towed before! s then after a long journey home and an afternoon nap I promptly pranged the rear bumper on a bollard, which means the Mondeo can regain the OEM gaffer tape. meanwhile the Capri has had an oil change - not through distance but age, it's done about 2,000 miles since the one last May? so new oil and filter. Hopefully take it for a spin tomorrow before back to werk on Monday. Floatylight, Dyslexic Viking, BorniteIdentity and 2 others 5 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
