Cheers everyone

20 degrees and sunshine out here so a great day to recover from the hangover I earn't last night.

Took the Eclat for a spin, but a water pipe burst on me! Fortunately I was pulled over at the time, decided to check oil, pulled the bonnet, and spotted water jetting up and out like a burst artery. Sh*t thought I, here we go again, with visions of blown head gaskets and other expensive things, but fortunately tracked it down to a pinhole in one of the pipes on the top of the engine. Shouldn't take me too long to sort. The jubilee clips don't look too bad to get to.

Apart from that the car is running well. I sorted my headlight issue out (broken wire) but while playing with the pod, motor linkages, in an attempt to get the pods to close exactly flush with the body, managed to adjust a connecting rod past the end of its thread, and the linkage has all come apart. Not a biggie, but looking forward to a couple of hours of delving round the inside of the pod to reattach everything.

C'est la vie, still not bad for a car that's only just hit the road again after a recommissioning.

And I'm still having a great day!!

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Cheers Robert, minor glitch, looks like a 10 min job once I source a hose. I've put a good few miles on already so I'm expecting a few things to shake loose and work there way out. Car will be even better for it.

PS I just discovered the rear interior lights, above the speakers. I can't believe the way all the little electric things are all working! Even the light under the bonnet!
