    Booked the FF in for all brake pipes and compressor replacement.

    That'll be cheap :confused::D

    If I wasn't lazy as ****, if it wasn't so cold and if I didn't have a cement mixer in the back garden to building a pile of walls... I'd maybe consider it for a few seconds.

    Mind you, I could probably fix the compressor myself if I bought one or got a refurb kit. Haven't actually googled the latter and that might be a good idea.

    Got my kit from X8R. Suggest you check which compressor you have first incase it has been changed to the AMK.

    You'd think so, right?

    I've been through 5. 1st didn't turn up and then blanked me. Second didn't turn up. 3rd turned up after 2 weeks of excuses to lay the concrete founds.. Then had loads of excuses (like last minute drive to Newcastle to sell their car.. Instead of being at mine) . 4th was stupidly expensive and 5th was the first.. Who then decided not to turn up again despite communicating with me 2 hours before he was due.

    So, doing it myself and while it's a lot slower, its getting done.

    That's what I'm edging towards - are they interchangeable i.e. AMK or Hitachi?

    Not plug and play, but yes, not totally sure how/what but instructions about.. But you do need a bit of reprogramming.

    Think again Gap will do it.

    Has your current one an OEM item or do you think it has been changed in the past?? I would be highly surprised to find any P38 that still has its factory fitted compressor or are we talking about your new toy??? I always thought Dunlop were the original item like the airbags albeit i could be mistaken. Having given up on the P38 after 3 failed attempts to have one i now have my glorious L405 instead.

    Got the bonnet soundproofing on again - the clips were a b'stard, especially at full stretch.
    Connected the washers again.
    Wife carried on trying with the seized bolts in the heatshield spacers for the passenger side exhaust, but I think I will probably end up making substitute ones.
    She also finished the first rocker cover paint job. Are we going too bling do you reckon?

    Compressor just to replace is 5 mins, Top cover off, couple of bolts no access problems and the outlet connection. A rebuild is a an hour if that..
