One step forward and two steps back?
Haven't really done anything since my last post some two months ago which is more than a little frustrating.
By this stage I was intending (hoping) to have one side done.
I didn't get any time off work over Christmas or New Year, so no progress was made on the car then.
My problem presently is that I dare not risk spending too long in the cold...
just after New Year I got very cold and haven't recovered fully since.
What happened is a bit of a long story so please bear with me.
I am a key holder for the business where I work part time, one full timer also has keys but no other staff do.
Alas I cannot switch my phone off because I am the contact for the security alarm.
Anyhow I was phoned by a part timer at 1:30am one Sunday morning to ask if I could lock up because the full timer (whose name is Martin)
had yet again forgotten his keys. The alternative was for him to wait an hour for Martin to walk home and back with the keys.
So I went along (which is about 5 minutes walk) expecting to be there a couple of minutes at most but somehow Martin managed to
completely lock the key pad preventing the alarm from being set. Eventually we managed to unlock it and get locked up but
by this time I was frozen to the bone so to speak and have struggled since.
This week I have done a little to the car and tidied up the work space a bit.
The little I have done is revealed more bad news....the front wings and front panel don't look too bad but
have rotted from the inside, especially the lower valance and nearside wing, therefore, I have decided to replace the lot
with GRP panels from the TDC.
Fingers crossed I'll start to make some inroads soon.
