And she failed :(

Handbrake efficiency 13% (has to be 16% and above for a pass)

Front brake sticking

Brake light bulb (bugger must have blown on way there)

 

mot guy reckons rear brakes just need a strip down, clean and grease up and adjust handbrake. Same with front calliper thats sticking. So have just told them to do it as it saves hassle bringing her home to faff about in the garage.

 

get her back monday

Swaps? Lol will get them stripped down and cleaned up again before meet. DD has been getting used since the mot, even out in the rain at the weekend. Plan is to drive her every weekend now regardless of weather.......which is just as well cos the weather sucks up here!

Nice wee run for DD........just over 200 miles and we've arrived in Harrogate for the weekend! Gayle drove her most of the way down (we were meant to swap places at scotch corner but the bloody slip road was closed!) so we swapped at some place ive never heard of! Sitting at an average of 80 and a wee blast up to a ton courtesy of Gayle and she drove perfect all the way. Now parked outside the hotel room having a wee rest! If you see her out an about, give us a wave lol

Did you come off the a1 just where the next set of road works start and go past ripon? It's a nice stretch of road between ripon and harrogate :D

Well, DD returned from Harrogate, 404 mile round trip. Average on the way home was constant 80, and up to a ton a few times! Don't normally drive her fast but felt she needed blowing out the cobwebs. Had a bit of fun with a rude boi in a Fiesta zetec S (all baseball cap and spots!) on the way home too..........naturally DD won! lol

 

She was a dirty girl by the time we got home, wheels covered in dirt and brake dust and many, many insects were killed during the road trip!

Dirty dirty wheels!

DD now all washed and looking top dollar again and back in her crib.

lol the camera doesnt show up half the dirt mate :lol:

Gayle had booked for that wedding conference/show originally too for a business shes starting in the futurebut decided not to go to the event. Rather than loose the money on the hotel room she thought it would be nice for a weekend away. And she was right, cracking town that, really loved it.
