Glad I don’t have one of those thingys.
I could do with a stronger brake return spring but you have to be a contortionist to get up under the dash :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol:

When you're faced with an unpleasant task that you really don't want to do, sometimes you just have to dig deep down inside and somehow find the patience to wait for someone else to do it for you.

Google maps. Searching accomodation for a trip to Elles family seat at Georgetown. They are selling off the catalick choich, and we have to go collect the Noonan family stained glass window or somesuch, oh and drink lots of beer of course. We ended up with a booking at the Georgetown Hotel. It’s the pub that dropped out of the sky in a beer ad years ago. We stayed there last about 1985…..

Gave the old girl a mini birthday today - hoping to get one car to the Nats at least Image front wheel bearing was a bit wobbly so checked them both, adjusted the brakes and caster , got half a turn of adjustment out of the steering gear and gave the wheels a polish. Tipped a can of stop smoke in the donk even though it’s probably a waste of time

The old girl had a bit of a miss yesterday, was smoking like it was an extra in a Cheech and Chong movie ….

Pulled the plugs this morning and this was number 6 - I don’t know much about reading plugs but I think this is a bit crook ImageImageImageImage
