And excellent afternoon with Chris yesterday helping in a small way to assist with the breaking of his erstwhile Xantia estate....
What a car, it served well and is continuing to donate lots to keep others healthy... It lived a full life and has died with great dignity.
It attacked me
I was underneath removing the rear hydractive sphere and unbeknown to me the sphere had lots of pressure in it.... I did not know until the sphere got to the end of it's threads, tight all the way, and then explosively let go in a great douche vert
The sphere flew impressively like a cannonball and walloped me in the side of the head
I once again discovered that LHM tastes horrible
Good job I had a hat on! It raised a fair old bump on the head though...
I got my own back. I nicked its Hydractive electrovalves in revenge...
My workshop was cleared yesterday of a V6 engine (gone into storage) to make way for Davie's Activa clutch job and a light overhaul of a 4HP20 gearbox with a dying torque converter... Catching it early before it really lets go..
I'm going to be busy for a little while and hopefully lots of interest to report here..
