    Yesterday actually, but on a rare dry day I completed some satisfying jobs on the Def 90 - fitted MUD seat rails on drivers side (I like a high position in the Disco 5), freed-up the seized side steps, and while I’d got the WD-40 out I similarly eased an almost-seized tailgate door lock - handle now lifts with little more than finger pressure!

    Loads more issues still to address...

    Spent twenty minutes in the pouring rain mucking about with dud rear lamp.. new bulb, switching the bulb from the other side...
    realised there was nothing wrong with the bulb and finally figured out that the blown fuse responsible is inside in the dry.. Berk :D

    I know that feeling, plus my timing belt and water pump did not turn up until it was getting dark, got the water pump on, timing belt is for the morrow.

    Cheers

    Trouble is I work from 5.30am till 9.30, then back again from 2.30pm till 6, which makes 5 hours off, but I have to get fed, watered, showered, start a job, finish it, or a part of it and pack away in that 5 hours! I need a garage ...

    finished replacing Wiper Wheel boxes that i've been putting off for ages because it's a dash out job. They work now which is an improvement and a lost memory card fell out of the dash from Greenlaning in Wales last year :D Result!

    Dropped the fenderer off for her MOT this morning, picking it up a 6 this evening! Just as i was walking away from it I noticed the rubber on the ball join on the drop arm is split, so that's a fail, but asked them to replace the rubber so hopefully all will be well! Bloody typical though, spent most of Sunday pressure washing her off and checking lights etc, only to notice that at the very end!! Doh!!
