I think my 4.0 Stype is about to take it's last journey to valhalla. I had a look at the sills, I'm simply not fit enough any more to lay under a car welding new sills on even though I have them ready to go, the stoma bag etc. just makes it impossible to contort my body as much as I used to be able to do.

It will be a sad day when I make the call, but I have to face facts, I'm just not fit enough any more.
Sorry to hear Lost it how are you? , As for the sills even I would have to pay somebody to stick 'em on, you might be able to find somebody who'll fit them for you, maybe even a mobile welder might do it for not much coin, especially since you already have the panels ready. :)

Are they bad the entire length, or could they be plated might be a temporary solution?

Another nice wee job Henry, tips look much improved.

So.....Is she staying or is it swaps time?

Seems like she is staying for the foreseeable, too good to let go ;)

Kinda thought that would be the case.
Too many memories, too much time n effort to gift that to someone else

Hmm seems my Steering lock solenoid has decided to clear its desk ;)

OOPS seems it ain't locking the wheel and its sounding very lethargic :)

Made a visual improvement to the old girl early this morning..

Before




After.



Spot the difference, lol apparently the PO added this poorly made sticker to hide a bumper scuff from him ignoring the front parking sensors "duh" and it made a nice scrape across the front..

The issue was I used to be in two minds as to whether to remove it, however it seems to catch the eye and IMO poorly placed,

So no its gone and the damage touched up to the best of my ability, should look ok for a short while as it will get painted along with the rear bumper ;)



For better or worse I think it is betterer!

Thoughts???

Gets my approval too 👍 Nothing against the union flag, but it did look a bit out of place 🙂

Luckily all of my grass has all gone crispy and disappeared, a prime spot to wash the car thinks I.

Mind you its been a while since the old Blue P38 has seen a splash of water..

So off she comes from the battery conditioner and on to my designated wash space, or the garden.

lol








Quite artsy but I do like the old bus ;) :)
