I'm impressed...you did them yourself?
Not the windows and double patio doors, but did the Oak front door myself ( 5 coats of clear Yacht Varnish )
Real pig routing in weather-seals into an existing frame
Sadly couldn't find a drip bar in Stainless Steel to match the letter box
.... guess the postman hates me due to the low-level situ!
Just looked at her .... pretty dirty wet, cold and windy.
Crossed fingers for a dry day tomorrow.
Maybe I am daft, but I like to clean the car before putting her in for a service.
Somehow I think if she is squeaky clean, they will look after it better. And might prevent some other careless owner slamming a door into her, in the car park.
Fitted my visseeo mb4 I got from a member. Worked great.
Now going to start and lubricate
my glow plugs 2 of which are dodgy
It’s just a case of best stuff to use I am going to lubricate them for a wk or 2 before attempting removal.
this afternoon I serviced the auto box on my 221
Just driven through the river that is the M42/A42 to the M1 and north from Brum to West Yorkshire. My winter tyres did an admiral job (see what I did there ) keeping me pointing in the right direction and getting me home safe.
Huge amounts of spray and standing water, but with appropriate speed and great tyres a safe journey completed
The Missus let me take her SLK to work last night, took a few adjustments to get the seat position right, but then I discovered to the right of the foot rest and left of the brake pedal there was a nice gap to fit both feet and stretch out to the firewall, bet thats not in the handbook
Popped to halfords to get a headlight bulb nearly died £44 for a xenon bulb
Hoovered out the leaves from around the base of the roads on the CLK . Then hosed any muck out . Topped off with ACF50 on everything
Yeh, but, I spent 10 months renovating my house and then my daughter's wedding...still had time to post.
That’s commitment for you
gave the 221 a good run today , ruddy awful weather didn't make it very enjoyable I have to say
You renovated your daughter's wedding??? With her approval, I trust?
Just done the reverse trip on A42/M42... blumin horrible. To be honest, most of the trip from Glossop back down south was horrendous!
I know it rough , cheaper decent makes online as pairs. But then you have to wait on them is the problem.
44 quid ! that's the price of convenience ( or free fitting )
