nice job there. Coming along nicely. I'm in similar position although mine is taking years rather than months. Currently sit on 94k and slowly doing each job. Suspension refurb is next on the list, plus engine mounts then get years of dirt off all the places that you cant reach!

 

So satisfying getting rid of all that grime. That's built up.

It's back on commute duties this week to make sure it isn't going to fall apart when I set off for Belgium on Friday :)

Bumping with a few images from the 4000km trip around Europe.

2 engine cut outs (loom of doom still playing up - one was 10 miles into the trip!!) and then the engine light came on 50 miles from home back in the UK too but my obd couldn't read the code and it hasn't come back since.

 

The scariest part however... the Genoa bridge. We crossed it 24 hours give or take 10 mins before the collapse, so it put a bit of a downer after that.
