WE HAVE LIFT OFF! Car is back from the garage, with full MOT (2 minor advisories) and good to go
The main focus to get her roadworthy again was the braking system. For the MOT she has had:
- Front brake discs x2
Front brake pads
Rear brake discs[
Rear brake pads
1 rear caliper (the fitted item wasn't even Volvo on one side!!)
Grand total of £434 including labour and the MOT, which I can't really grumble at, given the excellent overall condition of everything else.
Very keen for my little parcel from the Netherlands to arrive now, which should mean we have a full set of working instruments by the weekend. The Brinkie magic has been worked again
Hopefully the replacement relay will sort out the popup problem (jumping up and down with ignition on and headlamps switched off)... we shall see.
Many thanks to Jifflemon for sending me two heater control sliders, so that part of the dash looks pristine too - I shall pay it forward to another wedgie fan at the first opportunity of course!
I've had a quick 10 mile dash around the block, and if you think the moon is shining a little brighter this evening, it is just my broad grin in Lancashire, catching the light!
Best to all!
