Blimey, fair play to you driving in that, we drove through similar in the Alps a couple of times and it’s not an experience I enjoy!

Although I’m a bit disappointed, you need to try it without a windscreen!

I always intended my kit to be a daily driver, hence doors, roof, windscreen. I never wanted to spend all that money building it just for it to sit in the garage, waiting for the sun

Also, my normal commute is on my motorbike which is even less fun in this weather. ;)

7/10
'screen and wipers deducted from a possible 'full house', more points on offer for pebble dashed forehead from rain/hail.
additional points available for no heater and ice on the roads....
oh and a point deducted for the laugh....that was potentially premature, water down the inlet might take taken 3 sec's longer to become apparent before coming to a talk in the middle of the next puddle.

Aha, I don't have a heater, so 8/10?
