Sandy is in the shop for repairs after a slight, only slight altercation with a low bollard.

She’s got a crease in the passenger door sill and slight dent on the lower portion of the passenger door.

With the virus, it’s taken some time to get the car into a shop, then it took a short while to get a courtesy car rather than get the insurance to get one.

Well yesterday they picked her up. With the new virus guidelines, they aren’t allowed to drive your car from your house so they came with a car transporter and the courtesy car on the back, then with gloves and a mask drove Sandy on (they can drive a short distance, the garage is 20+ miles away and they’d have to disinfect the car before they could or able to work on it).

I had asked Catherine to send the dirtiest courtesy car so I could get my teeth into cleaning it (they are in need of a car cleaner) (no, not for me. I will not be employed to do it, it’s my thing to enjoy, not have someone standing over me telling me to hurry up).

Well they sent a clean car, to most it’s a clean car as there is a lack of dirt, but it’s not a clean-clean car. Dull plastics, lose fibres in the carpets where the pile has been pulled by so many vacuums and light staining of the seats. Now in it’s defence the seats just look dull but the camera picked up common seat stain marks.

Looking forward into getting my teeth into this when time allows

2018, Vauxhall Corsa E, 1.4 petrol manual.

Doesn’t look bad, just dull. Cheap nasty mats in the front (I’ve bought some 4 OEM velour mats, only £22, to go in).

It only had a quick vacuum, so need to go further into it.

Seat, plastic trim, carpet and mat all in need of some attention.

Fibres coming up under the rear parcel shelf. Will vacuum, clean, shave and re-vacuum back to new again.

Someone got bored at some point and carved in a star-ish... into the rear bumper.

Yes. I even look at the engine on a courtesy car. That’ll fill a nice half hour or so.
