    Just bought some more gear oil and gave my transfer box an oil change. So that's all the oils fairly fresh as I did the engine and man gearbox last week and the axles at Christmas. While I was underneath I noticed one of the brake pipes was chafing on the chassis, so I have put a little rubber covered p clip on it with a self tapping screw so it's not rubbing any more. There's always something to do.

    finally fitted a new stop cable to the s3 diesel, old one snapped weeks ago, so now I don't have to lift the bonnet to find the stop cable end to turn the engine off

    Put boards and a mattress in the back, I'm camping in it for a week, during my sailing clubs annual regatta, as we have a do after racing every night.. I think from that statement you'll realise we are not a posh club.

    Fitted a new gear lever and drove it to the mechanic to diagnose and repair the possible blown head gasket.

    Re-sealed the rear tyre bead because it had started leaking after it was let down by somebody a couple of weeks back. :mad::mad::mad:

    Then got a 'parking fine' for parking legally in a bay and displaying the correct parking permit. If parking companies wish to employ dwarves that can't see on top of Landy dashboards the least they can do is buy them a step to help them see. :mad::mad::mad:

    Fitted a new MAF sensor. Very impressed with island4x4 delivery, came next day and I didn't order until afternoon. However, I was trying to order it for 2 days but their site was being a numpty.

    Also started cutting a cover plate for the hole in my tub for fuel pump access. Can't wait to use the new rivnut tool (also from island4x4)

    Swopped the rear ladder to left side, refitted the spare wheel to the back door. And fettled a Skoda felicia rear wiper motor into the existing wiper motor hole. Bit of a bargain as it can off one of our training cars at work, works a treat.

    Now that's an impressive mount of rust on a shock absorber. One for the black museum there!
