    Drove mine to work this morning

    Might be the last time this year



    (Not just the weather, backing out of the garage at ten past six in the morning may be considered anti-social)

    That's the problem I have. Need to run it over winter to keep the underneath minimal condensation but we have elderly neighbours all round. So I keep the tax on it and trundle it down to the bottom of the estate on dry days weekly (on untreated roads) and run it at temp for half an hour where it won't cause a drama.

    Well. It was 5 degrees and dry on Wednesday night and last night...what to the council do? Cover the roads in our village in so much salt you leave tracks in it like snow . No more nissan for this year. Has been fun though

    recently treated the arches, never to sure if treating just covers up an issue until its a much bigger one.
    Have treated a few parts at the front which are showing early signs of surface rust with some Krust just to try an stabalise the situation for now.
