Hi Chaps

Not much of an update lately, but she is very very close, so close that Monday could be the day IF I can get some electrical gremlins fixed. and a few little jobs done tomorrow, bleed brakes a bit of painting, front parcel shelf. All small bit's but it could be done Tuesday if need be, she is running a bit rich I think.

This is a pic of how she looks now

Hopefully the pic will work

All the best

Darren

Ian.
Well nothing happened, my friend that does the Mot's on our cars let me know this morning that the computer has been down and there 2 days behind on Mot's, It came on line last night, but because there behind and he is the only tester I am hoping it will be tomorrow now. I've been waiting by the phone since I finished work in case he called me to get it in.

:( :( :( :( :( :( :(


As for John, I have been keeping him well aware of what's been happening to Mable :wink: Just wish he would come back to this forum.

Lets hope I get a call to say it's tomorrow, I do hope so

Many Thanks

Darren
