Thought it was time to get some light into the back as it’s now dark when I get home. Not OE, but a small kitchen LED strip stuck onto the top of the rear window and wired back to the main light and switch. Barely noticeable from the outside too....

Zebedee had his test yesterday. All clear apart from corroded brake lines. The ones that run on the front axle, you know the ones that provide brake fluid into the hubs. The man wasn't happy when I explained that they're actually vacuum pipes and not a tested item. #embarrassing!

Got the clutch changed on mine as it was starting to slip.

If anyone is interested in the cost of this it was £255.13 inc VAT at Mr Clutch in Swindon, but there are other Mr Clutch centres about the country. This included a flull clutch kit and not just the friction linings.


IF IT AINT BROKE, KEEP FIXING IT UNTIL IT IS

A bit of wash and polishing after the latest outing with Brett, Dave, Sniper and JackonlyJack. Not as bad as expected really. A bit of the G3 scratch remover stuff worked wonders...

before:


after:


Also fitted the new spare wheel holder thing with added L bracket for the CB aerial. This was to stop the #~$*ing thing clanging on the back all the time (where it was mounted onto the rear door before). works a treat now :-)

Well, not today but over the weekend I....

Fitted an Xtrons Android based head unit which gives me, Hands free, Sat Nav, Web Browsing, OBD2 info and all the music I could ever want in one slick looking unit (That install was very easy)

I also fitted an Easyguard PKE (passive keyless entry) central locking system with in-built alarm, push button start, anti-carjacking feature and remote engine start.

It's awesome just walking up to Jimny and she winks at you an unlocks, especially useful when carrying shopping with one arm and a rumbustious toddler in the other.

I took it to Halfrauds to have 5 new boots fitted and wheel alignment.
Yoko Geolandas G015S 75 notes each fitted, pre paid and pre booked last weekend. (best deal I found on line)
Arrived at 1pm for 130 fitting - no tyres had been delivered. grrrr
went home awaiting call which I got at 3pm telling me tyres would be there for 4pm so bring car in we will prep it ready.

530pm- still no tyres delivered and they close at 6pm so told them to put my old ones back on Im off.
Now trying to contact someone to recredit me so I can look and purchase from elswhere.
Just noticed they have manged to bust a locking nut and also put my spare with a slow puncture on one corner

What a shoite outfit they are, so unprofessional.
Avoid at all costs.

If you want to complain phone the head office, they will then force the store to sort it out to your satisfaction, be it a refund or tyres with freebies etc to keep you happy.
