Quite simply the cost

Tomorrow is forecast as clear so let's see if I actually do this or resort to keeping the alloys on all winter :laugh:

Oops it's been a while again.

Turns out I'm really, really crap at painting. I knew I wasn't brilliant but this is bad. And to quote the garage - "you're never getting anywhere near anything of mine with a paintbrush" :lol: :lol:

Anyway, picture time. They're ok as long as you don't get too close :cool:

Oh and I should have painted the bolts. I might still do this at some point....

Nah! I've learned my lesson

And once again it's been a while, although this is probably my worst absence ever - sorry for that

The catalyst for engaging with the forum again is that I passed a milestone with the Grande yesterday

174

It took a bit longer than expected as my work/life balance is seriously out of kilter at the moment and I've not had any time for decent road trips recently so much so that I don't think the poor car has been south of Aberdeen in over a year.

I must change that next year!

Anyway, the car is doing ok which means a huge bill is probably imminent. However at 100k the engine is only just run ;) in so fingers-crossed it lasts. I'm hoping to keep it going until at least 2021 as by then we'll know how Brexit will affect science and if I'll still have a job.

In summary, the Teuchter Car is still alive (as am I) and intending to stay that way for a while yet
