Tired old wife

Any suggestions here, lads. she's showing a lot of wear and tear; and acts up a lot if not expensively maintained. Just replaced her trailer, but she
doesn't sit right in it and complains about the hitch. Engine has lost
a fair bit of performance down the years and i am starting to consider
a replacement import. Good memories, all the same. I have an emotional
attachment but when i see my mates with their new models i cant help wondering. any advice?????????

Didn't Nick recommend a good scrub with 303 recently on another thread. Or you could ask Rogue Wave what he uses

There's a place in London, Harley St Marine I think it's called. Drop her in there for a refurb and vallet. Pricey but brings 'em up a treat..

On my Mrs. 40th I told my Mother - in - Law I was gonna trade her in for two 20 year olds.

Lets just say it didn't go down well!
