House is all sold now ! can finally make some progress on this. MOT due in august. Need to get rid of airbag light currently on the dash. During the search for the mouse i took both seats out not realising it would set it off and not be able to reset it myself. I bought a reset tool but couldnt get it to reset. Looking at getting new tyres all round. Been a mismatch since i bought the car. Maybe some new alloys too but will see!

Spent a little bit time on car. Took the checker board off the roof with a bit of heat. Bit glue residue left over but will hopefully get that off no problem.

Mine had checks (white stickers on black) on the roof when I bought it. After 18 months I removed them using the missus' hairdryer (first time I've used a hair dryer since my mid-twenties) and then wiped off the glue residue with tar remover before a good buff and polish with my DA.

It was quite therapeutic, a bit like picking scabs.

MOT Passed second time . apparently issue with one of the bulbs caused fail but second time was the charm. all tyres need replacing and brake hoses which i already knew about. Fuel Cap seal has perished so will need to get a new one sorted. Fitted milltek yesterday and will get some pics up later today at some point.
