Both my 1990 Carlton and 2001 Omega are ice cold and working nicely. Too cold infact - I sometimes have to put the heater on to stop the windscreen misting up on the outside  :D

I bought a Groupon voucher last night for an A/C recharge at ATS for £37.99 and did it via TopCashback for another 6% off taking it to £35.71.  :)

Phoned ATS this morning expecting them to tell me they can't do it until 2025, by which it it will have been too late as we will have all drowned or burnt up or something, but got told "How about 12.00?":o 

Can't do today as it's in for MOT, so it's booked in for 10.00am tomorrow. :y

 The best bit about keeping a 60,s car cool inside was the side vent on the front doors. Turn it right round and it blasted the air in from outside. My first real car was a 64 FB Victor estate with these followed by a 101 Victor with them as well

Quarter lights were also very useful when someone wanted to break into your car ....  ::) ::)

Well I wandered around it the other day and spotted a number plate bulb and a sidelight bulb gone, which I replaced (sidelight bulb was a faff!  ::)) and it was time well spent as she passed with no advisories.  :y

So all set for the A/C recharge tomorrow and fingers crossed that is all it needs!  :-\  ::)  :)

I've worked out a way to stop Mrs TB nicking my car, with its excellent A/C and even better chilled seats....    ...I've refused to refuel it ;D


So today, she's back in TBE, and complaining the A/C is shagged ;D

Half the dash out, found a blocked pollen filter, and its had a new hedgehog,and blower assembly, due to bad air flow??? (been in since new), has made the air flow better looking like got to go to dealers.   Looking like expansion valve,/ dryer.
