'Kin 'ell. Is this event jinxed? I'm going to have to read the tea leaves to find out what the portents are!
If they are negative I'll have to consider whether discretion is the better part of valour and stay at home. ;)

Seems we have found the source of the leak, how so much coolant can escape such a small hole is amazing. Wiring harness has worn a hole in the hard pipe to the heater up front. The excellent guys (heroes) at Phoenix Motorsports at Oswaldtwistle are in the process of making good. Can't thank them enough for fitting me in today, busiest time of the year for them.

Better to have found the leak sooner rather than later Nic. Well spotted and well done getting it fixed in time :th:

Car checked, washed & polished. Bag packed and ready to go. Had to go up to Sunderland Hospital today and at one point they said I had to come back tomorrow :no:
Explained the situation and they have given me a 6 day pass :th:
