    When I first saw the picture, I was tempted to say 'I hope that citröen doesn't break down', but thought it might be tempting fate...good job I didn't, or I'd be getting the blame ha ha..

      Hah, Wednesday now lol. It's the flat bed part that's busted. Solenoid has gone. Bit like when I brought back the red French mg montego turbo, that took weeks after it was picked up

          New log book arrived, unfortunately the old blue one won't be returned. With luck I should be able to get a day on the car over the weekend.

            New garage storage approved so the car will be moved next week hopefully. Garage is just round the corner so I should be able to make a start on it soon

              Sounds good! I find that it is amazing how much more you get done when things are closer...looking forward to the updates.

                Where the car is stored I'm not allowed to work on it too much. But tried to start it today. Fuel pump works but no spark, nothing at distibutor, nothing from the coil so maybe faulty coil or dirty crank sensor or dead ecu It's bring moved next week so will have another look once it's moved. Put fresh petrol in but stale petrol smell now. Poxy 1980s alarm is coming off, it's a bit loud.

                  Dash doesn't light up so that to look at, headlining a sail, battery tray has acid burns from the battery that's been on it for 15 years

                    Is that a shipping container? Good idea.

                      Yep, and very dry it is too. When its moved I will put one of my fast checks on it to find why it isn't sparking .

                        Bodywork and boot liner look nice tho' and the faults don't sound too bad after a 15 year holiday. I guess you'll have any bits you are likely to need on hand too?

                          Boot liner was a bonus. Yeah I have everything in my spares. Will also be using my one of my fast checks and for the first time ever for me, my digital dash check. Woo hoo. If its faulty I also have 2 spare dashes

                                I will be using two of these to check the car and dash. I have four fast checks though. One for carb and a lucas one. The fast check injection is an excellent thing. Never used the digital dash one but there will be a first soon
