Shed of the week

Post by richardd1652 » Wed Mar 30, 2011 12:05 pm

Dear Sirs,
please may i put my vehicle forward to be considered for the "Shed of the week".
It has taken many years off dedicated abuse and neglect to perfect this appearance and also of note is the huge oil slick under the nose which isnt for effect but is infact a genuine puddle of fluids which appeared overnight.
How it has just scraped through an Mot is beyond me, recent upgrades to its bodywork include a new aerial and the siliconed shut sunroof as the footwells are full of water and it smells like a wet dog.
As it has only covered 176k i feel there are many years left with which to maintain its overall appearance and street cred and hope its is still in one piece so it can be nursed to a CCC meet for your inspection.
Yours sincerely
Richard :lol:

If you spread that spilt diesel out across the whole bumper the colour would be nearly right!

The "Red Shed" as my wife has nick named it has been getting running repairs today. New aerial,sunroof sealed shut , a quick vac out to remove most of the crud and water oh and another bodge repair on the rubber return pipes connecting to the resoviour as it had snapped 1 .It is still pissing Lhm underneath so its going to the garage (again) and on the ramp to see where its coming from.Its got alot of work lined up so i cant keep pouring in Lhm just for it to run out again.I did think of fitting some wheeltrims but changed my mind as it may look too posh?

Took a mate over to Leeds auctions this evening in the Red Shed and it lost 1/2 litre of LHM so must get it bodged up for Monday as she,s off to Wales via Birmingham picking up bits and dont want to be spending more on LHM than Diesel!
