I'll be sorting the leak when I get it home, which Mike and I will be doing tomorrow with a flatbed truck. It needs a few bits and bobs, as is to be expected. It's the Rover's replacement, because buying a broken Citroen with five minutes MoT is the best option when you've got a totally reliable car with MoT until September.

Did I mention the Rover is for sale? Because the Rover is for sale. In the meantime I'm relying solely on the Princess.

Just fitted a replacement oe tape/radio unit and new front speakers (Christmas present) to my 216 GSi. Nice to have my music back. It has, however, demonstrated that I also need to replace the rear speakers too. I also now have a full set of 4, pretty much brand new looking, wheel trims to put on for meets and displays. Next thing is to complete the clean up of the engine bay and fit a new relay for the rear screen wiper. I also need to do a thorough clean/buff up of the paintwork and sort the bumper fade out. At the moment, anything that's not going to cost too much.
