2008 Vector 1.9 diesel 4 dr saloon with 5 speed manual gearbox.

And someone has had the passenger pillar trim off to fit a second ticket clip.

Bit blurry but it could be a 5 door...

Maybe.

Me. I had a tip from you yourself Will. It worked on earlier 9-5's. It still works today!

Somethings I don't forget!

Just wait until I get the passenger wing knocked back and put the Orange repeaters on.

Not the best setting. I admit that. The best setting would be at work. I am on jollidays for a week. The car is never likely to be where I need her to be..

Photoshop might be useful and save a 600 mile drive...

It might be expensive. Had two bods on one ''brain dilemma'' today. It didn't fix it.

I will phone CCSaab in the morning.

Moving on up. Innit?

Have another song!

https://youtu.be/wWUC2-ypnDQ

I might be "lost"

Will I be "found"

Who cares?

:D

CCSaab didn't get back to me. I took her to Brizzle instead. They did what they do down there. She is back!

All done!!

Cheers!

The windowscreen aerial really is rubbish. No matter!

I was disappointed though. Me can't fit the Orange Repeaters on the wings. The connectors are different.

BOO!!

Me knows that Estella is untidy inside. I washed her today. Hoovering will occur when I can park her up in range of the hoover.

Nahh Will. No can do. The Alpine has a stoopid connection from the aerial to the sender unit.

Tisn't SMA/B/wotever..

Tis stoopid. I did buy a spare one. I doubt that this will improve stuff.

No pics. I did take this one of the drivers seat.

Pre Treatment!!....

After an extremely hot week in the Lakes and an even hotterer six hour drive home,

I had the pleasure of being greeted by the new plates and V5 from Swansea!! They was ont door mat!!!

Can you guess what SIG plate I bought?

Me? I think that it is pretty cool. Tis 9-5 related.

In my eyes anyhoo....

Can you see a difference?

I put some more leather treatment stuff onto it tonight...

Treatment is the right word. Stuff has been in the car all week. It has been superheated! Will it be super good? Dunno!

Twas like a big blob of goo! As opposed to a cream thingy!!!

Cherry Blossom shoe polish. Just to cover the big scuffs. Let this sweat. or, not.

Simoniz leather feed cream.

Lots of rubbing type stuff over the weekends. Let it sweat during the week. Not hard. Me isn't here....! :D

The car was so hot inside today that I thought that the heat would mess the treated leather up.

I'd better look at the rest of the seats! :D

My "repair" is good! Innit? :D :D

I just wish that I could sort 9-5 paint out as easily!.....
