Thanks, yeah, thatís the plan. Just so my dad can get around safely and in relative comfort. It gives me something to do when Iím not tinkering with mine and as it is a good platform already can take things slowly and just do little pieces here and there. The MOT is probably due any time soon so may have some things come to light on that, but I donít foresee anything drastic!

I donít like relying on an MOT to see how a car is but havenít had opportunity to get under that in a while, so will see what itís like soon

Little update, had an argument with a low wall:



Ordered a second hand genuine replacement. Iíll look to tidy up the bumper scuff at a later date, although it may well be left as itís so low

Replacement light arrived:



Access slot through the bottom of the bumper for the fog light screw:



Couldnít find the screw without jacking the car and looking through, couldnít be bothered so bent the light out of the way to line it up:



Clicked the new one in and managed to get the screw in easy, all tested:



Small marks still on the bumper but more work than itís worth to sort

Have some suspension work to do:



Inspected recently with no signs of impending damage, ordered a set of rear springs in anticipation...

Got a package:



Russian doll style:



Containing these:



Hopefully that will solve the problem when I get around to changing them, maybe when it dries up a tad!

Also got these:



Generic set so hopefully they fit, having unsecured mats is annoying to me for the very few times I have to drive it

Try and replace the springs without disconnecting the arms, the bolts have a habit of snapping.
