    Re: hew hood

    your not wrong there mike ;) first time in five years we have been on m25 and not come across road works :D managed to get one of ebay pete.
    the guy at the hood place suggested putting a small flece blanket on in the area behind the seats to stop the inside of the window rubbing against the back of the cubby box fixing screw covers.
    but very pleased got to clean the rest of the zed today bit mucky after yesterday
