Thanks Shane. I didn't SORN mine either, thinking it would only be off the road for a couple of months. And then the thought didn't cross my mind again. It'll have been 5 months in a week or so.... I'll go and do it now, will probably still save me the best part of 100 at roughly 30 quid a month.

Thanks for the heads up. I was considering it but got into the swing of putting things back together too much! But its probably good advice so i'll do it, I've got plenty of paint/lacquer left over!

Lots of good work going on there Steve. Interesting about car insurance. Here in France it's the car which is insured not the driver. Also if you own the car it has to be insured if it's on the road or not. Your insurance will automatically renew unless you can produce official confirmation that you have changed insurance companies, the car has been sold or scrapped. Lot less uninsured drivers here.

Just SORNd mine before I get stung for February, maybe it will motivate me to start taking it apart if I know there's no chance of me driving it.

I reversed mine onto the drive at the weekend. So comforting to know I had tax and insurance cover in place.
It even got rained on.
