The way back however was slightly different.
Started off with trouble to start then Fuel Fail followed by Circuit 1 Failure causing the antenna for the radio not to work. With the Fuel Fail showing we didn't move from the campsite until I knew what the fault was, so a quick text to Rob Jenner and he told me it was the resistor for the hot start sensor, so we set off and that may have been why it had trouble starting in the morning. Fault cleared after re-starting the engine and didn't reappear.
About 100 or so miles into our journey a rather large rock hit the bonnet taking some paint with it before hitting the windscreen and causing an annoying 5mm scuff on the bonnet and a little chip in the windscreen.
That was only the beginning though, after a visit to Browns Ln, we pulled over at McDonalds and mum went with my little brother to get the food, not telling me she locked the car and then put the keys on the rear right hand side carpet where I was getting my stuff ready to give it a quick go over with Meguiars Speed Detailer, while they got the food and then shut the right hand side rear door Yeah. Big problem there we were about 100 miles away from home and locked out of the car, fortunately though she found a guy in a van on the same McDonalds car park and asked him whether he knew what to do. And guess what...HE DID! He went to his van stayed in there for a bit and came out with a wire and a load of long flat-bladed screwdrivers. He then very carefully prised away the chrome and slid in a bar to hold the chrome in place while he lifted the locking knob thing on the drivers door with the wire And thanks to him Oliver still has all his windows (mums plan was to break one of them to get in...NEVER )
But after a long and eventful drive we got home, Oliver got a wash and is now sitting on blocks tucked away under his cover.
