Changed pollen filter yesterday, ordered a new radiator which is out of stock and got my philips silver vision bulbs through the post today.

Haven't been able to do anything to the car today as it's at the garage where it's been in for an air con service (filters) and regas.

Changed the passenger door lock motor on the Elite (did the drivers a few months ago), and changed the passenger door seal on it as well.

Rest of day has been running cables through walls, and rearranging some of the insulation in the loft.
