    I'm sure the updates / pics and mods etc will come thick n fast after that

    Cheers

    Thanks for the positive words Jim. To be honest just getting the car back in any state will be a relief and a pleasure for me!

    Hi Armond, the May event is the Cumbria show.

    I did not know about the Jaguar day at Blenheim, looks like a good day. I thought you meant the Salon Prive at first, I'm not quite wealthy enough for that...

    Just got off the phone with the bodyshop; I am told the Daimler has been painted!!

    So the plan is that the bumpers need refitting (which have also been painted), and then it needs flattening, buffing, and cleaning then I can collect. The nice lad who answered the phone said he will take a picture or two for me and message them to me.

    Latest is it will likely be ready for me Thursday.

    I am starting to feel really positive!

    Hopefully the saga is coming to an end.

    It was beginning to feel like another season of Game of Thrones was upon us

    You have every right to be beside yourself at the prospect of it being returned to you in pristine condition.

    I for one am looking forward to the pictures taken on your drive, the German floozy's have been having it too good for far too long.

    Just " skimming " over this thread and it's good news to see that she'll be on her way back to you shortly.

    Hopefully they will not be charging you for storage, as well as the " hopefully " high standard of restoration.

    I am looking forward to the next photo shoot on your gravel forecourt too; the British presence will improve

    Well done you. You are the only person I know that could take "not done yet, maybe in two more days" as a positive!
