Ignored it. No motivation to fix the huge fuel leak it's developed.

Emptied the water trap in the boot. Then took me battery off and left it to trickle charge for a couple of days.

No James. Although I do have a Cherry Bomb somewhere in the garage, circa the late 80's. And that's gotta be good for about a hundred horsepower.

In the loft I have a pair of X-Power silencers, a K&N element and an Accufab oversized throttle body and plenum chamber. With a bit of physical modification to the airbox, that little pile should be good for a dozen or so bhp all day long.

I've also got a lovely B&M rose jointed shifter kit for my RS up there. It won't add any horsepower, but it'll make the gear shift slightly more awesome than the moon landings.

Revealed the beast from beneath it's car cover and tried turning it over (hasn't moved for 3 months, battery disconnected)

Fired up first time! Not even a hiccup or splutter very pleased. Now to get the thing insured again...

I put a new air freshener in the van. I did wash it the other day as well. Looks smart.

Temporarily repaired my front bumper after spinning out on a roundabout in work and hitting a kerb cracked the bottom of it.

Drove it to work and back, dropped some crumbs on the floor and got the outside even dirtier. Haven't been bothered with it lately.

Drove it around 70 miles, washed it and parked it correctly on the drive way. Topped up with around 1.5 litres of oil
