Bad luck. That reminds me - I need to check the tires and fluid levels.

Re: rain

Gavin ,a mate of mine always puts a garden gazeebo over his car when he wants to work on it in [email protected] weather, still not great but at least you don't come to a complete stop with your resto work.

Re: rain

I had a renault once, if you left it out in the rain it would rust quicker than you could repair it. You could hear it rusting. No rain here yet today, so I had to chop down a small beech tree. So its back to the computer for us Gavin.

Re: rain

weathers really nice in bonny dundee,i thought i'd be a smartar~e earlier and put the car up on the ramps to see where the exhaust was leaking from.i got it up so far then thought "na jist a wee bit further" then THUD i went too far .so with a little help from a trolley jack and the gtv's own jack i got it back down.thankfully no damage was done but from now on i'm sticking to cleaning windows.(didn't get to find out about the exhaust)
