Well the silver xantia is getting there, accu sphere, LHM and cambelt yet to do (why do people ignore such vital items!!), insides had a good clean and it is MINT, the outside has been washed, polished and half a pound of tar removed from its lower portions!

Lots of small dings and scratches to attend too, thankfully being silver it doesn't stick out to badly

I am still after a front bumper insert and nearside door mouldings which seem to be made out of unobtainium.

I bought this before Christmas for a laugh!

This is good fun, old school, manual choke, 4 gears etc and it handles like a go cart!

Should lhm be the colour of nearly new engine oil?

I'm thinking not, and filters black?

That should do it. When I got my Activa, the LHM was the same colour as old bitter! Frothy too!
