Whenever I pay out for a bill I tell myself that it's cheaper than the deprecipation on a new car, and I won't get any more pleasure driving round in a brand new car. Less pleasure probably as I would have nothing to tinker with :)
I haven't added up what I have spent; I know I could have spent less but as I am running it on the basis of long term ownership I haven't skimped on costs.

I've been off work for the last 3 weeks(yipee) so until I go back tomorrow,I don't know what shift pattern I'll be working.I'll let you know when I know.There's also a small issue about the wiring on my radio to sort out.I also think that the rear spheres may be a bit firm and could be ready for replacement.Are you sure you want me to come up there cos with your expertise,you may be able to spot a few other jobs that want doing? :o

I'd reserve judgement on the spheres untill the arm bearings are sorted out. Theres also a couple of secondhand ones here FOC.

Thanks to Ken, my BX now has good front spheres, a new air filter and a working speedo :D \:D/ Clutch is better and reverse is easier to select after being adjusted. :)

Dean, I called in at Barnsley Halfords on the way back for a spare bulb kit and a new wiper blade!!

I'm going to enjoy my journey back south tomorrow that much more!
