Mine have not changed since this time last year, which it disturbing. :sneaky

2018 was not a good year, still no garage, no work on the cabby, its not even moved for almost 2 years, my 25X is loosing paint
at an alarming rate, probably giving up on it, the 25 derv was supposed to be MOT'd but the rotary coupler snapped and it has an
Engine Lights on, (MAF) and the SRS light is on and its not the pretentioners, was on before the rotary coupler snapped but i'm
hoping it is just that.

I would like to have the Garage done by June, get shelves sorted in there then move all my filth from the old garage into the new
one after cleaning it as its covered in spiders and cack, then get the 25X, 25 derv and Cabby inside to start stripping.

As always it’s down to money, but at present I’m saving to get my Streetwise alloys refurbished so they can go on the Tourer.

And there will be a few jobs such as rust proofing the arches/sills etc.

I’ve also got a sill edge to knock back where some not good garage jacked it up in the wrong place before I had it.

Basic service and exhaust downpipe, repair rear passenger side window mechanism and repair /replace demisting heater on the Cabriolet then tax and mot and try to use it more.
As for the Tourer full service, continue as the daily and prepare it for a trip to Disneyland Paris.
And if that wasn't enough get serious with raising funds for a Coupe. :clapping :angel
