Fresh from a hands on (and hoses and foam on) car wash, first proper clean in about three months: still life with car, bottle bank and refuse pound. The car's clean condition lasted less than 24 hours. A run to Aberdeen at back at a steady 70mph and 37.2mpg meant that the winter road film returned with a vengeance. Spring and some sort of spring clean and a full service are hopefully just around the corner. The road noise from the failing catalytic converter is beginning to irritate however but I'll leave the final decisions on how best to rectify this (there is an obvious way) to Dr Ford's technical representatives.
