Nothing done on the car for a while apart from sticking the battery on charge, went to start it after a week in the garage and it was dead.

That's the second time in the space of a month.

That's what I'm thinking.

Car is garaged and run or driven for 30 minutes every weekend if it is not going to be used that weekend.

Prior to the last Limes meet it was dead the day before, left on charge overnight it was refitted and used for the Limes meet.

It was fine for the two weekends after the last meet, but was dead again yesterday.

So its back on charge again.

Battery is less than 2 years old.

Other than replacing the battery and buying a trickle charger, there has been no progress on any of the small jobs that still need doing.

Still trying to source a fitting kit for the louvre.

Exhaust started blowing on the way to East Kirkby, turns out the rear box has a hole in it.

So I'm now in the process of obtaining quotes for a stainless system from the down pipe back.
