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-)

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...
