Off for it's MOT next week and to investigate the high running temperature although it looks like it might be as simple as a faulty gauge as the neither engine or rad appear to be getting that hot. Fortunately I have a few spares should I need to swap it out.
Looking forward to getting home this week as the bodyshop have addressed the only paint issue her. What looked like two small bubbles appeared on the boot lid which thankfully has turned out not to be rust - phew. It was just some previous filler had lifted, this has now been removed and the prepared properly including another bit around the lock that had sunk slightly. All now super smooth and shiny black (well from the photos) but as the bodyshop are doing this as proof of their work, they want to paint the SZ, I am expecting perfection.
