Now the temp has dropped a bit, put a bit of air in all the tyres to get the pressures back.

You'll be setting the climate control to preheat the cabin and using the seat heaters next ;D

That's a work of art that is. Painted Hammerite red oxide primer on it this morning and it looks better than new....

Yes well, Chatham is 50 or so miles from here, so that's probably about the right distance.

Nearly cooked the Mondeo earlier when I got stuck in a horrible jam in Newport for about an hour and didn't notice the temp was in the red until we got moving and she felt a bit sluggish!  :o  ::)

Luckily I was just about to rejoin the motorway, so whacked the heaters on full blast and cruised at about 60 in top gear until the temp came down.  :y

It seems OK, but will have to check the fans.  :-\
