Reinsured.
Mobil one oil sticker (type 993)
New rear wiper arm
High level brake light strip
All fitted recently.

I've got a Becker Grand Prix with iPod kit and mic, that I keep meaning to get fitted. It was only due to the exposure of the ridiculous consensus of opinions on this forum, that I considered changing the one I installed 4 odd years ago. Now, I don't like the look of the one in the dash as it's not "period". The Becker looks better but can't play music wirelessly from my phone. Decisions, decisions..

New front tyres looming along with another service. I have visions of service agents draining honey coloured oil from the gizzards of 993's and then using said, untainted oil in the next car.

RS gear shifter/fork/solid rod, Carnewal front protection bar, and finally fitted the Becker GP unit I bought months ago.

All in time for a day at Brands on Monday. Razz

£5 spent a few weeks ago by cheque made out to 'DVLA Swansea' for my car's full vehicle records. The information arrived back today and has made interesting reading.

After filling up with V power I added the required amount of Ethomix to counteract the effect of Ethonal which will turn our engines into cheese. 5% Ethonal now 10% coming soon.

Some new tyres....

The wheels are off for a respray and four new tyres and it would be rude not to fit a new set of wheel valves as well.

I also had another socket installed in the garage, so that I can plug the Ctek in without running an extension cable around the car.

It's the small details which count Thumb

I'm doing the same thing refurbing my new (to me) garage. The socket will be on the "wrong side" of the car so I'm adding another Thumb

Car tax - the weather this weekend is too nice for SORN - can't have a cab and not drive it when the sun is actually making an appearance!! Cool

Changing the seats this weekend as well - may as well make the most of this dry spell...but I already had them so I guess they don't count...

Ok I guess this qualifies as this week.

Just dropped mine off to my trusted independent for the following:

Full Service, MOT and annual inspection, to include:
Oil and Filters
Gearbox Oil Change
Front Diff Oil Change
Brake and Clutch Fluid Change
Plugs
Fuel Filter
Oil Tank Sender Gasket

Plus whatever else they may alert me to.

With that and the total Brake Refurb to follow, she'll be in fine fettle thumbsup
