    well i was outside most of the time.. in the garden when the weather was decent... but i wasn't doing any gardening or sitting about... nope i gave the car all the maintenance and found all the little niggles that were bugging me... found a leak on the turbo vacuum lines.. sorted it, took of the front bumper and gave it a respray, corrected the vxr duck-tail spoiler resprayed it etc, cleaned and disinfected the interior properly, washed my rubber mats.. etc etc etc

    the car is driving like a new one at the moment but i'm contemplating on trying a seafoam engine cleaning... i mean i'm not going anywhere... so i might be better off doing it these days... i've done my normal intake cleaning a few weeks back but i still want to do a full engine clean (decarbon session) and from what i've read seafoam isn't to expensive yet very effective..


    thing is i don't want to be outside to long as i did it all with gloves and a facemask on..

    Oh to be stuck at home! Front line here, supported living.

    That said, I did have a day off yesterday so I found the air horn I bought sometime last year and fitted it.

    Gave the shed a bit of a tidy too.

    Maybe i'm not the right person to judge this since I've been working from home the last 5 years... so not much has changed for me other than i can't go out when i want to because covid-19 is everywhere...

    Cleaned and polished the silver car.
    Painting stuff - replacement wing, door trims.
    Re-building nearside front suspension on my black car.
    Got fencing panels, etc. coming tomorrow. Moving 20 foot of fencing at the front.
    That'll keep me busy! Love being busy.
