    Also, don't they put that stuff in diesel that stops waxing when the weather is cold? That's gotta kill mpg. I only got 22mpg on the motorway Saturday!!

    It a 2019 bit it's only the weeny 1.6 engine. The fact I have been carrying a sofa in the back for the past week as it's the only dry place to store it while my conservatory is built has nothing to do with it

    I've a leak in the passenger headlight and an MOT next month so I'm adding some sealant to the housing. Hopefully does the trick.

    Can't put it back on until tomorrow as it takes 24 hours for the silicon sealant to cure.

    As I had the headlight out and as it's pitted all over. Gave it a good tcut and polish with a polishing head. Hasn't come up too badly, I'll get round to sanding them at some point.[​IMG]

    Well not a good day for me the drivers side engine mount failed so engine dropped and ripped aux belt off and the mount went through the timing belt cover and shredded half the belt luckily it didnt snap otherwise it would have been game over. The bang it made as the pullys hit the chasis leg scared the life out of me.

    Phew. That's something at least. Fingers crossed it's a cheap repair bill.

    Had a go at taking apart one of my rear lights, it was leaking water quite badly and had built up grime and mold over the years.

    Getting it apart was pretty easy as the old glue had degraded.

    As for resealing, I think it will do the job but I'm not all that happy with how it looks.

    Im going to have a look into some restoration tutorials, otherwise I'll find a replacement. Intrigued as to how they where sealed at the factory. [​IMG]

    Replaced the heater flap control motor on the passenger side. It's taken me four years but finally did it. Took an hour and £6 replacement from eBay.

    Was going to change the disks and pads all round but decided it was too cold so took it to the garage as they would also bleed the brakes. Good thing I did as one of the rear calipers was seized so they also replaced this while they were at it, I would of been pulling my hair out trying to push the piston back in

    Was yours doing what mines doing still? The passenger side will only blow cold UNLESS the dial on the passenger side is set to HI then it gives heat, any other setting on the dial it blows cold.

    Painted the silver fr wing mirror covers black.



    Also give the calipers a fresh lick of paint and reapplied the yellow tint to the front fogs.

    Next on the to do list is to paint or plasti dip the chrome grill surround
