    Sunday...
    Adjusted my clutch pedal. Whoever ran the brake pipes across the top of the clutch pedalbox wants a ding round the lughole with a bg spanner, but the amount of time I spent on it meant two different neighbours stopped me and asked if I was available for work, and seemed impressed that adjusting a clutch was an under a tree with a beer job.

    Monday... with clutch pedal 35mm lower, gear changes were a bit easier. Chugged down to builder's merchants, loaded up, went inside and realised I couldn't find my keys- in the ignition, with the window open. There are advantages to living in the middle of nowhere and having a tatty looking car.
    Treated it to a new 95Amp hour battery, as I think the old one is dying.

    Today. Brother-in-law lost a trailer down a 45ish degree slope. Had fun pulling it out, without catching any large trees in the process.

    Sunday took her to my first show at York at RCM 4x4 and later that evening visited Westwood Pastures in Beverly.

    Loved it. Taking her to another show this coming Sunday.

    Today I repaired my engine loom on the TD5. Including replacing the glow plug leads and a new shielded cable to the CPS.

    It now looks like this...

    Gave the prize of my vintage cassette Walkman collection (Walkman DC2) a run up earlier.

    It’s a perfect match for my retro styled Blaupunkt Bremen SQR46 DAB model.

    Went out as passenger in the series1. Going everywhere at 40 is fun.
    Change truck cab rag top to full canvas & refit rear seats for next weekend

    Finished sanding and filling some rust holes on the bulkhead. Just sprayed primer (used acid etch as I thought the windscreen-bulkhead hinge was an alloy). Fine on the sanded metal but reacted with some of the paint - school boy error not to check - but seems fine on the filler (where I was expecting a reaction). Back to the wet and dry tomorrow :eek:

    Stripped down an early 3pin indicator unit & got it working again for the drive home.
    Love the simple set up of early series motors
