well.. the last 2 weeks have seen me quite busy at work.. and also I have been working on a forum members 406 coupe (different forum)
Stealers wanted £1600 for an MOT and a service! (service about £300)
the car is worth about that, or less...
Failure was (front pads, discs, exhaust, power Steering pipe)
any way, all done..plus I did the trip computer unlock (which I am 100% sure is possible on a V6 xantia, except I dont know where the data would get shown, on the 406 its where the outside temp/radio station are)
he went away happy this morning, and i got some needed pockect money..
the motorhome has not been worked on.. I am going to repanel the internal walls, and apply some mastic style tape to the outerside seams, and do no more right now.. it will get a thorough leak test before it all gets rebuilt..
it turns out that it needs a class IV mot, so I can take it to my usual guy and that should be that
exept his ramp maxes at 4000kg and the van is more like 4300.. I am going to remove every loose item and drive it the 5 miles to him, down some thin lanes
Today, I got back on with the VFR**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff].. which has been sitting neglected for many months... I am fed up with people tearing past the farm on this A-road having fun on their bikes!
Its back together, all working, and the plastics are sort of ok, a shadow of themselves but still..
I am thinking of a raodtest in a few mins
