After Inspector Maria passed the paint I was instructed to apply the trim.

How did you get the paint off the fog lights? I presume that is what Maria was checking on?

I can understand that... Bonding with a car is a very personal thing and often inexplicable...

I clearly bonded with Xantias and with my Saxo immediately but I could never bond with an XM... I tried hard with three of them but never really could...

I've also bonded with that Ka... Explain that because I can't :roll:

I had no problem bonding with any 205 too...

Bonding is a strange thing. I didn’t bond with my activa, however I bonded with Gabby nearly immediately and I have no plans to get rid. I think the only thing I would consider to replace it would be a xantia v6 auto.

Well, I got to stage 4, it was looking great.....then it slipped off a chair (my fault) onto the tiled floor and shattered....

Oh well, time to start a new one :(
