Sailed through MOT. :cool:

Stopped in at the bodyshop on the way back to get a quote for the arch and sill, plus popping out a few dings and giving the stone-chipped bumper/bonnet a respray. He also reckoned he could sort the slight imperfection in the roof caused by little scrotes using my car as an obstacle course.

Then stopped at wheel refurb place to get a quote for that too.

Gonna be an expensive summer!

I've had some unexpected non-car related expenses which have eaten into my car budget for this year unfortunately, so I'll have to scale back my plans for 2014. I definitely get the arch, sill and alloys sorted. I've already bought one brand new headlight enclosure, so I really need to get another one or it'll look silly. Everything else will have to wait I think. :(

You really needed to check the size as I couldn't remember what ones I bought as I got them a few years ago.
I put the web link up as a general nudge in the right direction.

Can you post a link to the product you bought / the correct size, fella? It's a brilliant solution when you get the right size isn't it - no more comedy parcel shelf! :thumbs:

Tone - can you edit your previous post so no other poor sod ends up with a pack of washers they may or may not ever find a use for! :lol:

Ok, the grommets I bought from Halfords are:

HFX 502
Price Code: M
Assorted Blanking & Cable Grommets.

Few different sizes in there, I just tried a couple and found what was best.

Pippa Puma cheekily snuck into this nice FRP shot someone took at the Essex meet this weekend (nicked from the Facebook group):

How would that be organised? I assume there would be probably 10000 cars? Some of you would bring the washers with you and borrow the water and electricity or there in situ you have facilities to clean your cars? Again, I suppose the place would be packed and if everyone needed washing (and that may be so since it is raining) you may end up queing for washing all of the day? :?:

Pretty sure water is available onsite. Or I guess I'd have to nip out to somewhere with a jet wash and come back. Dunno.

Or I might just not bother going. :|

It's been boiling hot and sunny all day in Essex and i think you've just had bad luck!

You've got to turn up, Ford Fair wouldn't be the same without you!
