mrs's griff got her crimbo prezzie today, as i was going to take it to cheddar for a test run out, and i got a text from her saying i will come to cheddar with you (she thought i was going in my work van). i had already picked it up and was running late after scraping ice from outside and in and pumping up the flat. so i went back an picked her up in it she was gob smacked thought i might be selling it last week after the ear bending i got about buying ferck old cars but she drove it and loved it. its got a bit of speed wobble at about 45 but passes through it eventually oh and i think it runnin a little on the rich side as the fuel gauge says we used nearly half a tank affraid

wahoo got heat out of the heater channels today i found out that if the heater cables aren't connected the flaps in the heat exchanger are sprung shut so i have wired them open till the new cables turn up. but i still couldn't get the hot air to come out the vent under the windscreen Suspect
