    Might just clean the discs and hope for the best and wait until it's back on the road for the calipers, quite a chunk of work to do the calipers on top of family time, unless I just swap them out for new ones to start with and then refurb in the warm and dry of the front room.

    Can't believe that the little one is a year old on Wednesday and has not yet been in it :oops::oops::oops:

    Time is flying for your builds.
    I’m glad mine has had a full rebuild & it makes all my jobs easier when I have to do them. Even the little jobs give you satisfaction.

    @dieseldog69
    happy birthday to the mini diesel.

    Brand spanking new and it is a dream machine for an operator, powerful, fast and smooth. New firm so the Peugeot Partner van had to go back, miss the bluetooth DAB radio already but it's fun to back in a little Fiesta lol

    Already fitted the carpet and got me slippers in the cab, the life of a machine driver hey :)

    A place called Yapton, an absolute hell hole of a place to get to as you have to negotiate the Bermuda Triangle known as the Chichester bypass, it makes the M27 roadworks seem like a hyperlink lol

    I am reliably informed that I will be heading Havant bound after Christmas as this thing will be too big once I have smashed in the drainage :)

    Been out to play tonight, back bumper on along with the trim and I found the bits for the passenger side back mudflap and the cable for the bumper indicator relays so that can be done too.

    Only got Tuesday an Wednesday nights to get done as Thursday night I gotta drop it off at the garage :eek::eek::eek:

    Well after a lot of searching I might have found a wrecker to go cut chunks out of.

    No MOT tomorrow, found a new spot of rust that needs attention.

    Was cleaning the interior out in readiness for the MOT tomorrow and as I grabbed the windscreen door post it felt odd, and not the kind of odd that I could let go......

    Cameron the MOT tester popped in on his way home and confirmed that it is an MOT failure and needs fixed :(:(:(

    This thing hates me, I know that but it's getting silly now lol

    Postponed by a week, welding on Sunday and tidy up anything little left over that needs done.

    Oh well, could be worse, not sure how or with what but it could be worse lol

    Not really sure but he said it's part of the structure and has major corrosion,was tempted to just slap some cammo duct tape on it and hoping for the best but he is the MOT tester at my local garage and a top bloke all round TBH I thought it best to consult him.

    It's fine, Rusty hates me, we're going to counselling and I'm sure we are going to get through this, there are both emotional and physical scars that have been endured for us both during this relationship, coming to terms with our troubles is the first step towards our healing..........

    If that doesn't work then Silverlake scrapyard and lots of free time for me will be just fine :)
