Thanks Conaero. Will get it done at some point and will report back.

Fingers crossed, she’s covered around 8k per annum mostly in spring and summer in my 5 years and she’s a 2009, and she’s been garaged all the time in my ownership so will be interesting to see the state of play

I am interested too - will do a little research. 2 minute google shows MC Stradale parts similar in price to skyhook shock. Would need to can-converter to stop the errors.

Yeah, it’s scaring the sh*t out of me!

Might need to come down to you for the work later in the year.. Have you got a car I can borrow so I can carry on down to Portsmouth for a day or two-whilst you’ve got it :D
A nice little Renault 14 I believe.

Thought I'd update the status of my car, managed to get pictures of the underneath.. Dinitrol was used.... it stinks!!!

Really happy, looks new. Only minor surface rust, no holes, nothing to worry.. phew. Great to have that peace of mind.

Whilst it was off the road, I managed to get the wheel arch liners off and give them a good soak and dye back to being black.. one of my pet hates. I also replaced the front headlight holders, coated them with fertan myself and had them fitted.

I used JR classics in Doncaster, I couldn't recommend Joe more, I'm going to take my truck there later this year.
