    Given the current weather it will be a while before you get it down.

    It is hurling it down up North :(

    Lovely pic Pete.

    Took mine out 10am this morning roof down. Scraped the ice off the rear screen and crossed my fingers. Risky I know, but I will not drive it with the roof up!

    Hi pete59, not too bad over here, seeing as I live on the coast, wind is 5bft south west, around 18 to 24 mph and looks to stay like that for the rest of the week.
    Long term showing rain though, up to and over the Christmas period. :-?

    This time last year we were knee deep in snow. :-??

    Lovely pic!

    Me having the mental age of a six year old I couldn't wait till next year (also its a force of habit) cracked my back window...massive sadface! I heard the pop and knew I had made an error!

    All the best,

    Dave

    We keep an eye on the wind and weathering due to working offshore.
