Been waiting for a delivery for most of the day so took tango to the tyre/exhaust place across the road from the job I'm on to get the air con gassed up, unfortunately there's a leak in the system somewhere

So then I took it up the garage for the jet wash, spent about 20 minutes in there giving it a good clean. Could do with some more time but I ran out of coins

About to throw sparks everywhere, bit of trimming of the plastic and some cutting of metal, now they should give me enough clearance on the front tyres 8)

Now that’s what you call a rapid recovery 8) what are those pipes made from? You got me thinking now, the fuel supply and return pipes entering the pump on ol’ lucie are well rusted, wonder if it’s got a pin prick hole in causing air ingress :? Lockerbie wasn’t too bad for it to brake, at least you was north of the boarder

Gained 4 inches of clearance on the front tyres, made a bit of a mess with the sikoflex though, I even painted the wheel centres with some black paint :P
