Finally positivity!! We start this blog with news that our dearly beloved car has finally passed an MOT which has been a long time coming but at least now we can start putting some miles on her to see if any issues crop up before we depart which is less than 50 days now!
The summer seemed to have ended as of Friday, so we've spent the past two days getting slightly moist cowering under umbrellas, attaching LED spot lamps to the roof rack and threading a pesky wiring harness through various cubby holes in the car chassis in order to hide the wires in an attempt to look "Professional". Lights are now on and the switch in place (pictures below) and neither os us got electrocuted in the rain also bonus!!
Today has also seen us dodge frequent precipitation so we can finally attach the stickers we were given a while ago to the outside of the car. We have to say even for our standard the car is starting to look quite good. we also discovered a bobblehead from a popular video game which has taken place on our dashboard, yet to be seen if this is lucky or not? only time will tell.
The end of the day saw a culmination of effort from the past two months which has been getting this car to a state of drivability and potentially fit for trans continant rallying. This left us with only one thing left to do.
Bassically It all ended in calamity when we got the car stuck in a muddy sink hole, and then almost got the rescue car stuck trying to get to it however all is well both cars are now in respective places with slightly muddied underbodys and bumpers. In our defense we did try and drive down a farm lane where tractors frequently churn up mud, however still not looking good if we get stuck outside of any civilisation fingers crossed this won't happen on our trip.
