It must be very frustrating, but hang on in there, you'll be out and about on lanes again.

Best wishes.

These pins and wires?

 

Not sure how much the seventeen pins are that are into my bones, but the little adjustment rods (mini-propshafts?!)

 

are apparently £400 each, there’s 12 in my cage, and I’ve had four rod changes during the realignment process… and they’re single-use… they get thrown away at the end of the process?!

See if you can blag a couple as they come off, they'd make very cool steady brackets for spot lights....

thought it was about time I dusted off the buggy and took it out for another test drive… You may remember that after I built it the head needed doing twice, and since then it’s been sat in the garage whilst I’ve been sat in hospital beds, getting divorced, and setting up a new home in my little cottage… Four hours driving today and all good, the temperature stayed steady and I had a lovely drive… Now I’ll bore you with the photos!

 

Parked on Pensarn beach staring out to sea and contemplating life ;)

 

There were too many cars around to have a play on the pebble beach :lol:

 

Rhyl in the distance... best place for it :lol:

 

Llandudno Prom'

 

The Great Orme in the distance... hmmm... ;)

 

What a shame.. no-one in the toll booth! :lol:

 

Stunning view of Llandudon and it's Victorian Pier.. and the buggy of course :)

 

 

 

 

 

I sat here for a while taking in the view...

 

 

Conwy Castle...

And then flew home down the A55 averaging 70'ish... a great afternoon out, and four hours driving to test the engine... all seemed good, so the next thing to do is to take in some local lanes then!

Last time I tried posting a big update the site through an error and wouldn't post :(

So here's my latest two trips on my blog (apologies for external links, but it also saves me doing everything twice... or three times if you count facebook too!)

21/05/23 Local Wander

28/05/23 Wandering a little further
