Collected today. Not a good start, flat battery and the seller was not home to help. Autoaid to the rescue within 25mins with a jump start and I bought a new battery at Halfords.

I will need to monitor that!

Drive very nicely 100 miles home avoiding motorways in case of further shenanigans.

There is a to do list forming as usual!

Today's jobs were a new rear Saab badge, new rear Aero badge and restick the aftermarket shark fin cover that seemed to have come loose almost entirely.

Upcoming work:

  • Brake pads front and rear (rear pads on the way, fronts arrived today)
  • Number plates
  • New RH tail light after stone damage a few days ago :wall: (one is on the way)
  • Refinish some interior plastics (plastidip ready and waiting)
  • Repair centre exhaust hanger (got everything I need)
  • Brush and Hammerite front and rear subframes (got paint, they are sound but have surface rust I would like to address)
  • Service
