    Update to what Ive been upto lately

    Thought Id post an update as to what Ive been upto as I havent been on for a while:

    MK3

    Well after 2 months of hard work by the guys in our bodyshop the Mk3 has now been painted. (well the shell, tailgate and bonnet have, rest will be done this week). She just needs polishing before some re-assembly can start. Have also included a couple of pictures of a Corsa owned by one of our mechanics that has just been repainted from Arden Blue to a shade from a Yamaha R1 with some metal flake through it.

    Liking white a lot these days
    The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

    The L-plate Omega saloon I had, has now gone. After a month with her she never missed a beat but being a saloon it just wasnt fitting my requirements, and after an offer that was too good to pass up she is onto pastures new.
    A week later however and I had a new Omega on the driveway. This time something a bit newer. After hunting around and looking at a couple of complete sheds I found this one advertised on Auto trader by Paul Mimmack (ex-police car specialist). He had 2 for sale, both 2001 model 3.0 V6 manual estates. This one had 100,587miles on the clock, some rust around the number plate section on the tailgate but is generally in pretty decent condition. She came with a full years MOT and was about half the price of anyother new shape I could find. She does require some work (tailgate painted and roof painted with holes filled), that aside a new accelerator cable (current one is stretched to the max and shes good for another 100k
