    Default I'm missing the Levitson updates

    Is it tooooo cold in that northwestern Victorian garage, or has he taken the family on holiday? I'm missing the rigorous updates on the ID restoration. I went looking for something I was sure he documented about tidying up S/S trim, couldn't find it.

    That old chestnut! I guess the lack of sleep and the prospect of a chilly garage are too formidable.

    At least now there is a "Son and Heir" to carry on the life long Citroen tradition. I hope he has more luck at fostering young interest than I have had. Four boys and not one of them has become a 'Citroeniste'

    my experience is that if they even talk to you, you're winning. Maybe I just keep asking the wrong questions. I think after being embarrassed at the prospect of being collected from school in an old DS my daughter may come around. Maybe when she turns 30, at the moment, still not interested. Only another 8 years to go, hopefully I can hang in there.

    When they approach 30, they want to hop into your wallet for a house deposit with partner !

    Apparently born with an oversized hammer in his hand I'd heard. The innate Leviston behavioural traits mean he will need very little training to know what to do with it around a car!

    You must be looking for this right

    Polishing stainless and alloy

    The biggest problem is I've had the flu for the last couple of weeks.... What a bloody ripper, I don't think I've ever had such fevers in all my life!

    I'll get back to the old ID in the next week or so. It's been a little busy here as they had to do a "slash and grab" and my wife, so she can't drive or do much for 6weeks. I was amazed when the ID started today as I need to use the ramps. A tickle on the fuel pump and she was away It helped when I jumped in to find no steering wheel fitted



    Here's he is, David Shane Leviston .... No he doesn't like that dummy, that's just a big game to see how far he can spit it

    BTW: My wife loves her new poogoe, proper gearbox and all. It's such a shame they forgot to put suspension under them, the crazy bit is you can now buy the C5 with the pretend/make believe suspension under it too

    seeya,
    Shane L.

    Congrats and best wishes to all of you Shane.

    You may be stuck with the Peugeot for a long time. We've had ours 17 years and my wife refuses to part with it.

    Congratulations from up this way too. Having brought up two boys ( who don't own Citroens but don't dislike them ) I appreciate all the work involved in the day to day routines.

    You have been an inspiration and a great help to many.
    I've often thought that with all your knowledge you would have been capable of running a Citroen workshop to service country Victoria West of Melbourne.

    Hoping your health is now coming good in a cold part of Aussie.

    John Paas.
