Found the hand winder for the sun roof. It fell into the consol around the handbrake. Tried to get it out with a magnet. Its now gone under the hand brake. I now have to take out the console. At least I can take out the pound coin that has been lying in there since I’ve had the car.

Ahh, beat you there I got £1.27 and €1, a paper clip, a fruit pastel, a dead 10amp fuse and a comb from under my console.

Ah! But I haven’t taken out my console yet, so I don’t know what else I’ll find.

I have since removed the complete interior and can add more to my tally, lurking under the front seats, 2 McDonalds sugar packets contents intact, a lighter, a pass for a campsite in Bere Regis dated Sep 2006, 2 of the plastic caps that hold the side panels in the boot and a further 16p in coppers, nothing under the back seat.

Car now has T&T. Still requires a bit of welding at the bottom of the B post, and the I’ll have to have look why the fog lights aren’t working at the rear. Switch illuminates, but no lights. It needs a good clean and polish. Oh and drive it
