No problem glad to help
Hope the other A pillar finisher come off with no problems as well.
Also check for dollops of sealant around the glass after they’ve fitted it you really don't want to end up with a rusted A pillar and a huge repair bill like I did as a result of poor fitting.

Evening gents. Yes im still here

I have a seep from the return pipe on the turbo radiator. The pipe is slightly squashed and I cannot get a good seal. The pipe is pathetic anyway and I seemed to have slightly cut into the samco with my jubilee clip. This isn't the cause of the leak. Anyone have any tips on resolving this issue?

If you are unsure as you look at the radiator its the top right tiny little pipe.

Always had trouble even with the old radiator :D

How annoying!

Never had a problem with that one myself. Could try a smear of Hylomar Blue on the pipe to aid with sealing.

Cheers man

Well it appears that this summer has gone and once again the car hasn't moved :laughing2

I am going to dedicate some time to it over the next few weeks.

I have a driveway and decent lighting so no excuse.

I generally though don't use the car in the rain (in fact I dont use the car at all) but still I need to use it. :laughing

I have done a total of 11,000 miles in almost 12 years, pathetic :D
