I’m a roofer and this winter has been brutal, fighting Mother Nature doesn’t work, you have to work with her, but the spring will soon be here and the weather will break and work will get easier... you learn that hardship not only makes you strong it makes you wise...my knees are shot my back causes me grief but I can still do more work than most of these whipper snappers... and I can work with Mother Nature to keep people warm and dry...

@peter strokosz - I can't stand outdoor work (other than car washing), especially when it's cold. So hats off to you for your determination to prevail.

@Chris T - what's up with the motor? And even if the car was working, the weather has been shit - so unless you have a bottomless pit of money to entertain the kids with something new each day for 2 weeks, they have to make the most of it lol.

God knows what's up with that's the issue, I needed another 6 weeks out of it to get the Elgrand off the boat and on to the road and it's having none of it.

It's an L200 slow starting up, doesn't want to rev past 2000 then it passes and could run fine for 2 mins or 2 hours etc

Good luck! I don't envy anyone going to one of their face to face meetings.
From my experience with mt wife, my advice to anyone would be to take someone with you if you can.

Based on an experience with a friend, will they use the getting to the interview as a way to fuck you over. As you had to travel X amounts of steps from car to building, sat in waiting room for X amount of time (they will delay you on purpose that's part of it) etc etc etc

To be honest, I'm on the verge of giving up all hope of owning a nice motor. I wasn't joking when I said I was thinking about an old landrover. No off-street parking here, all terraced Victorian/Edwardian dockworkers houses. Too many unqualified drivers who've had relatives take the test for them, quite a giggle sometimes watching them trying to park, shunting backwards and forwards without turning the steering wheel before abandoning car in middle of the road and getting said relatives to park for them.
