I found a corner was cracked off my scuttle panel, got a new one from the stealers for £18 and fitted it, when I eventually got the wipers off  :shocked:



Afterwards


And cleaned my other wheels up ready to fit back on and take the winters off



Thinking of selling the CHs that i currently have fitted with the winter wellies on  :rolleyes:

Cleaned it, took it for a spin, frowned at the layers of dust and crap from the road that's now coating the lower half of the body again.   :angry:

Did a little more sanding and preparing of the secondhand Monza Shadows I intend to put on the car in the Spring.

I did the same with the Mk2 today. Cleaned it because it was covered in dust from being parked up since October, then too it out for a spin (to look at a potential new car) on what seemed like clean, dry roads, and it's bloody worse than when I started.
Red Mk6 gone replaced with a white Mk7 which has gone too. Green Mk2 here to stay.

Gave mine a good clean including a top up of sealant on the paintwork. Mind you, I cleaned Mrs Buck's first.
No driving it around today - just reversed it back into the garage.  :smiley:

Ouch.  My other half's not driven the GTD yet.  But then she thinks her Fiesta 1.6 TDCi is a little too powerful!!

Hope your wife is ok.

The first two points are the most important , the car is irrelevant , it can be fixed or replaced.
