So, where to start.....?
Displayed at a couple of little shows: Brayford, Lincoln and Louth Classic Car Show. Hopefully doing Cadwell VSCC day in July and Kirklees Light Railway in September.
He's been in to the Volvo dealership in Grimsby a few times for bits and bobs of maintenance.
I invested for my son, Fox B......
Info centre has been intermittent recently. It'll be fine for a few weeks, then go off/on every ten minutes, then go off for an entire journey then be fine again for a few weeks. It then had a big old reset and displayed everything:
So, I have a cover but it's that Halfords one that is 'breathable' on the sides.... I went to start it and I feel that over the past four weeks, it has struggled a little. I put this down to only using it about once a week and the battery not getting charged/dying. So I bought a trickle charger (charges normally then switches to trickle when full). I tried to start after this and it struggled again after about three tries, then kind of buzzed and lost everything. Zero electrics. I have had a previous 480 get wet but that was a hardcore leaker and it was the water coming from drivers/front/screen area that killed a relay. This....this looks like the water has somehow got into the engine bay. The interior is dry, the engine bay was not. So, looks like it'll need recovering to Volvo and hopefully they'll let it sit there until payday.....if it's not crazy unaffordable to repair this month of course. So currently, it's going nowhere. We were moving to lovely detached house with a garage last week....then had to stop the process as couldn't get transport for Fox to his new school in September. We were majorly gutted to say the least!
A guy came to collect a rabbit cage I sold and he reversed straight into the corner of the 480....
I thought it had just damaged the wrap (black line around car is a wrap, not paint) but looking a few days later, I saw it's actually cracked the bumper between the two layers. This needs fixing but I don't want to do it (painting wise - I know I won't get the right laquer look!). Then the wrap will need replacing. Everyone tells me I can't ask him to pay as it was on private land and it's weeks ago now.
What did he say? "Oh, did I hit it? I wasn't looking that side."
He also crept over the 40,000 mark last week. Awful experience!
