If you are only meeting in a group of 6 they won't fine you now, guidance is to minimise travel but not in law.

It's good...cous T took it n not me. (✷‿✷)

Nah, termo housing has the mega bracket on it now, it's dryzabone.

I could see a tiny tiny track of water atwix the core of radiator and the side bit. Traced it back ooop to the top left hose attachment area. Have reseated hose but could be small crack or corrosion of outlet..or bad rad!

 What will you do if it's a bad rad, Daps ?   Do you have local repairers ?

Cry. ◉‿◉

It's possible I have one in stock but not sure. If not I guess it's a hunt around to see what the options are.

Luckily I have the Bentley boys who deal with rotten stuff all the time and will know if it's possible to recore it or not or repair cracked outlet/inlet etc.

My main worry is finding the time to do anything aboot it.
