Back on the road! (nearly)

Post by Caff » Mon Mar 23, 2020 4:35 pm

Well my plans for conquering europe in May are ruined because covid-19 beat me to it! ](*,) But at least my car is ready for an MOT!!! She aint perfect, a little rough around the edges so there are plenty of little jobs and the odd bit to sort out i know. haha.
