So how'd you managed to take a photo of your camera? A clever mirror trick? :lol:

You know, I wondering whether to kip in the XM. I have done a couple of times in the past, I can almost stretch out from corner to corner with the seats down 8-)

Im looking forward to this weekend....Ive managed to get out of work and realised that its only about an hour away from Brize Norton where my brother is living at the moment......i havent seen him in about a year so plan on meeting up with him at a halfway point for a bit then coming over....

As far as packing goes.......sleeping in the car its easy.....me+quilt+ pillow = job done :)

Wish i had a car in tip top condition to bring down... :(

D'oh, I got the XM out yesterday ready for a good cleaning for the weekend and the front brakes are binding on. We have had a look and it seems the calipers are a bit siezed up, its not the handbrake as first thought.

So I need to have a better look at that today, otherwise (depending on how things go later) Ill bring the Xantia down. Failing that it could well be the C15 or C5 which I attend in. :?

Whatever im bringing ill be setting off early morning tomorrow, hoping to get there for late morning. What time is the convoy drive? I dont want to miss it :D

That's good news on the weather Richard, the big man upstairs has been listening to our pleas by the sounds of it :D

Chris, will be good to see you in whatever you come down in... Hope it's the XM 8-)

My Activa is looking well scrubbed up now. A polish and engine bay clean will follow later...
