    Its a list...but when you think about it when grouped into tasks that can be performed together....

    1) Rear Suspension Bushes
    2) VANOS, Timing Chains/Guides, SAI Pipework, PCV Valve, Breather Hoses, Oil Seperator
    3) Gearbox service, Engine Service, LPG Service

    So is not too onerous...just lots of parts and a bit of time!

    Very true, lots of parts that's the scary bit. Let's finish with the January blues first and then onwards and upwards or driving forwards at least. ;)

    • Front brakes need attention at some point. New pads/slider pins
    • Another engine oil service with new sump plug
    • Manual box oil change as last time was the pre-to-service change, with new plug if old one will come out. If not this job is done enough as it is :D
    • Cut hole in boot and fit a tank pump, maybe new clear pipe
    • Clean up side sills underneath
    • Get some ATs as I do more road use now
    • Dealing with usual catastrophic failures as and when necessary

    Replace all bushes, including rear A frame ball joint.
    Replace all body/chassis mountings.
    Change the anti freeze.
    The usual fluid/filter changes.
    Get a new set of boots on her, plenty of tread on the old ones, but now getting old and I want a more road biased pattern.
    Maybe look at uprating the alternator.

    I would prefer something that didn't need more constant attention than a wife, the lottery win that would make it possible is unlikely.:(
