Car’s in for two new tyres today. I should probably use my brakes for roundabouts... underside is in wonderful condition though and the garage said how great of an example it is! Bit of a knock to the bank balance though, I’m sure it’ll be worthwhile.

That’s a pretty good idea... I’m a bit low on the old funds at the mo but alloys are definitely in the pipeline

Depressing day today! Took the car in for an MOT a week early just to be on top of things... failed on contaminated brake fluid and perished CV boot. Gutted! £186 later and it’s all fixed. Steering feels a lot tighter, and the car is in great health... unlike my wallet.

I know! I was saying that it’s an easy job, but as it was failed I had no way of bringing it home. Yeah, it was black!

I'd have drive it back even if it's serious there's nothing they can do to really stop you and it its current not is valid unless your messing about ect should get home fine without problems then , using the 10 working days to retest sort it and drive back down ,
Did they show you. The problems like?, I really don't trust the words of garages specially ones who do repairs due to many that try to create work for them self's

That’s true, I guess it’s all done with now, just rather annoying! Yeah I trust them, although they didn’t show me. The guy used to be a technician at Nissan, me and Dad have been going to them for years! STS Tyres in Lowestoft.

Yeah, should always get them to show you first really, my local always shows me what's up ect and that ,
Same as always make sure to check the car over a week or so beforehand other wise be costly for silly things

That car looks in top-notch conditions, I would love to see the interior.

It’s been a while! Lots has happened.
Firstly, we hit 45,000 miles! He’s not such a spring chicken anymore...


Also! I fitted a universal induction kit, didn’t feel any performance benefits and was stupidly loud, so I removed it!


Now at university, so the car is on standby until I’m back! Fully insured for the year, but it’s just gonna sit for a while. Hopefully Dad starts it up and runs it in weekly intervals! All clay barred and polished this morning by him too, awful scratches and dents but are unfortunately by the previous owner AND behind panels.

It was a pain in the you know. I broke my two mirrors the strings that guides the mirrors like pop one each on both mirrors. There had little trust where there pop. I may have push the levers to much and hard. So had to get two use ones. I wanted to show the process I went through trying to get those strings back in place. I hope not go through it again. Some of the pic here, I would rather buy instead of fixing. One of the use mirrors glass was not in so I had to use set up from my mirrors. The two mirrors set up was slightly different. A 1997 and a 2002.

The first job this morning was to remove the old adhesive pads from the number plate and clean it up a little bit.


After wiping it down it was then simply a case of sticking the new pads onto the plate and then onto Mr G! They look much cleaner and it’s more reassuring knowing that there’s a proper adhesive holding my number plate up. I love the plates as they’re the originals... still with the dealership logo at the bottom.


My boot handle is quite loose on one side also... I took the interior panel out and both screws were as tight as anything. Is it a case of just gluing it back on externally?

Yeah I also saw minds broken two of the brackets I bought some two part epoxy resin for the job haven't get to it as yet. The past owner like he just pick at things that he then know any thing about.
