    Everything has ground to a halt at the moment as I managed to break my wrist in a mountain bike crash. So give me 6 weeks and I'll be back into the swing of things. In the meantime, I plan on have Volvo fit the DP soon.
    Wheel refurb is planned for late spring/early summer as there is minor kerb rash from previous owner. I will be having them painted Carrs Anthracite (which is darker than Volvo Anthracite) and hopefully a good match for the dark grey plastic mouldings in the front bumper and rear diffuser.

    So, watch this space as there's plenty to come.
