Maybe I have too much time on my hands. So for reasons that I’ll probably explain in the magazine at some point, I put a Banksy on my bonnet.

It is amazing what you can do with a spare can of white enamel spray paint, a bit of cardboard, some scissors and some sticky tape. I thought it might go badly wrong, but I didn’t have much to lose considering the state of the bonnet in the first place.

Painting and decorating your car is a wonderfully childish and, it has to be said, liberating thing to do. I mean why do I want to rely on the Adam and Mini marketing departments for funky colour combinations? Provided I don’t need to worry about the resale value, I might as well do what I want all over my motor.
