Update so far, still havent got insurance certificate so cant tax motor so have been unable to drive her, sniff sniff.
Found the rear view mirror on the floor, i think glue was used to stick it on & it went brittle. Another job to get sorted easily.
Right lets start her up, surprise surprise, dead as a dodo. I had noticed that i couldnt switch the stereo off, it seemed to be on standby & i think its drained the battery. Tried pulling it out, got the surround off, but couldnt get the bleeder out. Will have another go before the hammer comes into play.
Right i will check the battery, oh great, i couldnt get the caps off to see how much water was inside. Will have to give that another go.
Still leaking oil at the mo, will have to get that seen to as its parked on my brand new drive. I did put down some of that oil absorber granule stuff, so that any oil would fall onto that rather than drive, i hope it works!!!
So apart from all these teething probs, its still looking good, just not moving at the mo. Fired up the Gti, no probs with that one at least, & its booked into the garage this week to sort out the suspension once & for all.
Phew, thats it for now....
