Barry came and picked up Blue so I'm now down to two Triumphs. Because I'll be working back in York, I've got myself a Vauxhall Astra for the commute. It belonged to Anita's son who had a problem with it and ended up buying a Corsa instead. The Astra was a simple fix in the end and I was given first dibs. It is now insured and as soon as I've got the V5C (registration document) I can tax it. This means that Becky II can have a rest and I can get a couple of jobs done. The bonnet release cable needs replacing and the nearside outer CV gaiter has split. I've got a spare bonnet release cable and Barry has given me a nearside driveshaft. If I can get the hub nut undone then the swap will be easy enough.
