Covers and a few pipes complete, together with a modicum of engine cleaning.  It's not often I do cosmetic stuff; I hate it and I'm crap at it.  But Dan's an OK guy really (if you ignore the cross-dre

Finally, it's over.  Tyres fitted yesterday, MoT passed this morning.  Dan picking up tomorrow!  I'll shed a tear when the old girl departs. @Dan E what time are Group 4 arriving with the cash?

We'll discuss the various fees and surcharges later as they really are mounting up.  It's out of my hands, you understand.

I haven't had glovebox training. @JNW3 can you offer any handy tips?

It’s nothing compared to the transport finder arrangement fee, usually 10% or minimum £1k. Invoice to follow.

I'm starting to wonder if it was really British Airways you worked for or Ryanair. Are you sure your name is not Sparky O'Leary?  (although that does sound like a porn star name come to thinks about it...)

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Remember, the pinnacle of my airline career was trolley dolly (tea, coffee or me?).  Also, my mechanical apprenticeship was served with Dinky, Corgi and Lego.

Trust me.

The complete engine needs to be vapour blasted. The wife says it's a disgrace, and if you think you're parking it next to ours at Ryarsh next year, you're out of luck.

It'll be touch and go, but I'll do what I can.  And there's a significant vapour dispersal fee.

As you well know Shan knows bugger all about cars 😜, I am looking forward to not only sparkling cam covers done by Sparkles but also the next surcharge this will incur. Apparently there is an Art charge linked with this along with a lot of other levy’s, luckily I am no mug so I will just pay them plus a cash bonus 

And I blame @Bazza 907 😀

Ooh, a cash bonus!  Don't forget the 6 hours at double bubble today, plus the Sabbath surcharge of 30%.

A very pleasant day checking off lots of C Service inspections, and removing cambelt/tensioner etc.  All in all it's in nice condition with just a few issues.  The hydraulic leak is definitely from the seals between master and reservoir.  They seem very loose!

And one unfortunate item discovered:  the right hand bonnet hinge mounting point is fractured.  Deep joy.  I'm sure Dan will be able to guess the origin of this.
