Well as for my picture, its quite literally a case of "the lights are on but there's no one in"

And no one comments on the mesh grill. There isnt anyone I see day to day that has the faintest idea what kind of car it is let alone any subtleties about the bodywork.

your average person cant comprehend anything that isn't a diesel hatchback/ estate these days. so let them stay non the wiser. otherwise all you get are idiotic questions like,"so how many mpg does that do then". :roll:

Small but pleasing job done today. Replacing the nitrile bushes on the throttle arms.

According to David Marks in a recent JEC mag article these bushes can contribute to poor v12 starting problems if theyre broken/missing. Must say mine improved greatly just for having some fabricated bits of rubber as a temporary fix.
