Former car - no longer own this car14 updates 15 followers 4 mods2012-12-09 21:55:56attempted to start her up after a couple weeks in the cold, didn't work, but thinking its probably due to her basically dry petrol tank... hoping she'll wake up once she's had a drink :)

also put the rear passenger light cluster back on after removing it to check for water collecting as was concerned - thankfully it was all okay!
hope to clear the garage out asap so she can be stored away for the coming winter :)

Wrote a list of little things needed from a breaker - it's a start :)
