    Not the windows and double patio doors, but did the Oak front door myself ( 5 coats of clear Yacht Varnish )

    Real pig routing in weather-seals into an existing frame :)

    Sadly couldn't find a drip bar in Stainless Steel to match the letter box

    .... guess the postman hates me due to the low-level situ!

    Just looked at her .... pretty dirty wet, cold and windy.
    Crossed fingers for a dry day tomorrow.

    Maybe I am daft, but I like to clean the car before putting her in for a service.
    Somehow I think if she is squeaky clean, they will look after it better. And might prevent some other careless owner slamming a door into her, in the car park. :)

    Just driven through the river that is the M42/A42 to the M1 and north from Brum to West Yorkshire. My winter tyres did an admiral job (see what I did there :rolleyes:) keeping me pointing in the right direction and getting me home safe.

    Huge amounts of spray and standing water, but with appropriate speed and great tyres a safe journey completed :)

    The Missus let me take her SLK to work last night, took a few adjustments to get the seat position right, but then I discovered to the right of the foot rest and left of the brake pedal there was a nice gap to fit both feet and stretch out to the firewall, bet thats not in the handbook :D
