Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

No, nothing like that I can assure you :-) Due to some inconsiderate tw*t hitting my Saab putting it in the garage at my expense, I've had to press the Sierra back into service. Luckily I had not got to far into doing the swap over, so a simple job to recommission. Decided for the first time to use the heater, now the Sierra is not entirely water tight, so after 15 minutes steam started to be blown out the vents. This condensed on the glass and no amount of wiping etc. would clear it. Thinking the heater was naff I thought another job while its stripped out. A quick nosey and it appears the housing was full of leaves which were wet. Cleaned it all out and still I have steamy windows. Driving with the windows open soon clears it but it is fun to see the damp air being thrown out the vents. Heater is not leaking just never used in 12 years, hopefully it will dry out a bit each trip. Or I'll just turn the thing off.

I was welding a cement tanker, inside. Aluminum Mig, lots of amps, lots of smell. My mate Melvyn, the best welder I've ever known, was outside welding, and didn't like the line up so beat it with a large mallet, not only did it age me several years, I was head to foot in cement dust and couldn't see the way out, oh how we all laughed !!!

Argh, Sierra fan belt has turned to dust, and I ain't got a spare, plus the passenger side wiper blade has perished. They don't build things to last nowadays.
