MOT due tomorrow so everything crossed ! ....broke down on Erskine Bridge on Sunday night , ground to a halt with MCSF ...managed to get home in limp mode in one piece but was a rather frighting experience. 2 lanes no hard shoulder sitting half inch from barrier .....with a few near misses from rush hour traffic. Read some threads and cleaned MAP ....1st time fix :) ....so far so good .!

Defo still attending, however car's an embarresment at the moment, and hitting my pocket with things like a new ball joint, front flexi pipe. I am hoping to get the rear bumper re-sprayed before the meet as its been scuffed badly :cry:

Stll, Chin up eh...:thumbs:
My grumble list is growing rapidly. Rear bumper is damaged , looks like a fridge or the like has been allowed to drop out the boot. Has been touched up but still ugly. Fellow member quoted me £270 approx to fit. This guy is a magician when it comes to bodywork repair. Have a standard door ding on drivers door and a smaller one to the rear. Think I will need to live with them. I have a slow self sinking driver seat ....not a big issue but now and again I forget and find myself on the floor. Stonechips galore ...Have chipex just need a sunny warm day....:cheese: Scratched windscreen ....been using rubbing compound , will probably get rid of scratches by 2015.

New new tyres ....all of the above parked for a least six months ....!!! and whatever else comes out of the MOT tomorrow....:eek:

Is the actual run on the 20th?
Yes Paul ...run on the 20th .....run route is not set in stone as yet , hoping to get a couple of suggestions from locals. Original plan was a drive down the promenade in Blackpool , also had an idea to run to Lancaster canal , which may be more picturesque for photo opportunities ...:)

RWD beast :cheese:

I might let you have a go in a proper monster 200 bhp five pot tractor :D

I did give a little :think: when I hadn't seen you on the M6 for the last few months :(

Did the plate stay on the GT or did you put it on the bimmer?

Its currently on retention, as I don't pick the BM up until early March. I have been using hire cars and public transport to get around lately. :cry:
