So the start of this year is going to be taken up trying to address all the little, niggly issues I currently have with my old girl.  I'm sure I'll find more as I go but my list for now is


1 - Find someway for reattaching all the loose bits of interior trim/headlining.  I have already had a go at some with a spray adhesive but it didn't stay stuck! 




2 - Find a way of pulling out and repairing the dents in the rear door/arch, or find someone local to do it for me 





3 - Replace sticky front calliper with a shiny new one and give the rest of the system a overhaul with new disks/pads & shoes.


4 - Replace exhaust system, Cat and Lamba sensor as she only scraped through her emission test last MOT.  I'm hoping to fund this by selling my Factory original CAT that's currently on her, but I've been having problems getting a price for it as it doesn't have any codes on it.







5 - Find out why my drivers window sometimes works fine and sometimes needs pushing to get it to go down.


6 - Look into why my rear bumper is slightly warped on one side and giving me panel gaps that really annoy me.  My wife thinks I'm mad and being too fussy but I cant unsee it lol 




That lot should keep me going for a while so I look forward to keeping y'all upto speed as I crack on with it.


Peace ✌️

Please do I have some of the same issues with my MB4 (2000) so she's an old girl. As a temp solution I have wedged some ice cream sticks to wedge the bedouin tent up. The problem is the foam deteriorated and that's what the fabric is glued to, no glue will solve that. My rear bumper has lost a few  of the plastic attachment screws. The door card fabric  may be fixed with fabric glue. Drivers window has just started to be lazy. Other than that I cant justify getting rid of this otherwise great motor , notwithstanding the cost of the last MOT ( just under a grand, ouch)
