Well, not yet.
I got it home by about 1700 and then had to grab a shower before diving in the car...
I am writing this in Swansea.

But Saturday cometh soon enough...

i might try n get all the underneath cleaned and painted on my days off, n sort the brakes out n that, the rest of the bodywork is pretty solid, but will have to find a pair of good doors as mine are rotten through, i wound the window down n it kinda dropped as the winder mechanism was rusted out lol so new doors are on the cards, n hopefully have it mot'ed by the end of next month!
