Thanks. The 25 is higher mileage and the daily family hack, with 4 drivers in my household. Apart from the usual service it will need 4 new tyres and I’ll do a good check under and around it, over the next few weeks. Especially joints/ bushes/ gaiters/ suspension; it was pulled up in last year’s MOT on a steering joint that I’d not noted would be a problem.

Took the ZT-T out to a car display at the Boundary Bay Air Show near Vancouver Canada. It is a smaller air show at our local executive and sport plane field. There were about 50 cars and retired military vehicles to complement the air show. It was a great day out with some impressive aerobatics and a great turnout by the public.
Of course when I raised the windows to head home the left rear mechanism failed. Luckily I had a repair kit on hand and did the repair today. The plastic clip that attaches the window mount onto the rail had failed probably due to lack of lubrication after 22 years. My next job will be to pull off the other door cards and lubricate the rails before the issue happens again.
