After a very long day waiting around Horizon the car has been sorted. The new hose has been fitted and the coolant changed. The surprise of the day was the heatshield bracket, it took ages to fit so cost be about Â£70 in labour
Just doing all the bits to get the AA to cough up for the hose/coolant costs.
Also enquired about a front end respray, mines covered in stone chips and a few little spider cracks. Will be about Â£450 so might wait a while before I do that, new interior is a higher priority at the moment.
