Re: Grasping the nettle (at last)
Of course had it been a Scenic it wouldn't have needed any, Plastic wings.
That is true, but it probably would've needed an electronic handbrake module, and a couple of window regulators... (and I'm MUCH happier with bodywork)
It's swings & roundabouts, the car hasn't let us down, even fully-laden on our two most recent european excursions, and we've got a biggie in late Sept/ early Oct - Italy!
I'm pretty-sure someone has been filling my joints up with broken glass, as although I was NEVER supple, I feel more brittle than ever.
So I feel your pain, and totally sympathise with you. (it's not easy, getting old, and refusing to accept it)
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
