shame my laziness sped up the wear of a tyre!

Didn't mention that I cut some of hte bonnet strengthening away for the airfilter not to be crushed.
Finally I'm getting around to getting the spare boot lid and bonnet repainted, well getting quotes!
Perhaps it will be ready by September?
Just failed MOT too but sorted by replacing steering gaitor.
Pics now all rehosted - more to follow.
Damn not updated this in a while.
Spent a while back in the summer trying to work out why my brakes were crap.
Front discs were pitted so I replaced them and them and the pads.
In the process I broke a copper line going to the front left caliper....damn. I replaced this and after looking at my advisory list for the last 3 years decided in my last two days before schools went back to buy a flaring kit, copper and redo all the lines up to the compensators!
The ones back from them I did in the reshell!
Stops now to the point of going through the windscreen.
New gear rods (thank Miles) fitted to eliminate the slop. As it happens I'd replaced everything else and after fitting the rods it made no difference.
So my old GE rods were still ok after 11 years!!
The slop comes from driving a modern BMW which has no slop whatsoever in the shift.
