You can get a cover for those switches from DMCH. Thing is, their postage costs will be double what the item is. And then theres the VAT to pay when it enters the country

Doesn't the matt-aligner thing have a raised bar at the top to reduce the chance of knocking them?

Yes it does but they have long sold out and I dont think any more are being made. You can only get whats being dubbed the "arranaligner" which is the same thing but without the raised back bit

So whilst the car and the weather is behaving itself (just), i thought i would go for a spin and get a few snaps. Ive missed driving the car and missed out on the lovely weather too. Still, im not one for hibernating the car anyway...
