Did a 320 mile round trip to the welsh coast to do some work on our cabin. Great fast drive along the M4 in beautiful sunshine but not another 75 or ZT to be seen. Where have they all gone?

Today I stripped the rear window seal as there is a water leak in the boot which I narrowed down to one of the trim clips. From reading this forum I was reliably informed that I would break some of the clips when removing the seal. Well if you are very careful then the trim can be removed without damage.

Ive cleaned the trim clip area thoroughly along the bottom edge of the window and let to dry overnight. Tomorrow I will apply some sealant and refit the clips.

On removal of the trim however Ive noticed that the window seal is showing signs of chrome through the black top layer. So my question is do I remove the black covering for a chrome finish or try to get a replacement seal? Are they available and if so how much are they?? Where do I get one from..

They're available from Rimmer Bros, however, while you have the trim off the car, give it a good clean, degrease it and give it a whiff over with some satin black paint

Ive only unclipped the bottom part to resolve the water leak but I suppose I could remove the lot and give it a quick spray. Thanks

Cleaned and touched up paint under the wheel arch, checked suspension nuts and bolts following replacement of wishbone and rear bush, replaced some of the arch liner fixings. I've found that you can repair those pesky plastic screwheads on the expansion fixings (the ones that round off the phillips indent)https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-DYQ100230 by heating a phillips screwdriver and inserting a new phillips indent, allow to cool, then the screw head is good to go (out or in) again!

EDIT: or:-

Some things aren't worth repairing it seems!
or maybe they are?

Today (and the past week) I've been wracking my brain to figure out how I should go about making a custom intake manifold, so many options!!!

Think I've decided to keep the lower and replace the plastic upper with a composite based design, so if anyone has a spare knackerd plastic manifold for the V6 let me know.
