Well I have a new battery I need to fit.

I also have to investigate a creak that has appeared from the front driver side. I have a feeling it is the wishbone or its ball joint.

Other than that it drove very well yesterday after being laid up for 10 days due to the snow.


Plus I need to fix the leaking exhaust on the Bravo.

The exhaust won't be too difficult, its a split flexi where I bottomed the car on a speed hump that was covered in ice.

At least there is only one of them though, the GTV has 2.


I decided to hang onto the GTV for a while. the missus wants to keep her Bravo so the GTV can stay for a while.

I just need to find a baby seat that will fit in the back.

Yeah I think I will do a bit nearer the time.

It is going to be an expensive month, what with a new Battery, 2 new wishbones..

Plus I have just had to buy a new pair of glasses, and I have to have a crown on one of my teeth.

I might get mine through a car wash................. Don't normally use them but the garage down the road has one with underfloor jets that zaps hot water up under the car, hopefully clear some of the salt and sh*t off the underside........ and alledgedly it has ultrasoft brushes.

Next weekend it'll get a proper "hand-job" ..........

Cheers to All
Peter

Well Limey, you'll remember that I fitted a towbar to my 3l GTV over Christmas. Picked up a little Fiat Seicento this evening with my trailer and the Alfa. What a great tow car the Alfa is - hardly noticed the car on the back and was still quicker away from the lights than most everything else! Towed at 60 - 65 in fifth no problems and felt as solid as a rock. Thought I'd spend a bit of time sorting out the Fiat at the weekend but will post a picture of the Alfa towing the trailer for you all to enjoy!

I wouldn't put mine through the carwash. My paint is too perfect for that. :p

I will get a jetwash and spray the underneath to get the salt off though.
