    Changed coolant temp sender, finally got a working temp gauge. Massive job i know:D

    Still barely getting to 1/4 on the gauge. Am thinking thermostat stuck open, top hose always hot bottom hose cold.:confused:

    Changed the fuel tank which had sprung a leak. Filthy job which requires the tiny hands of a child to get to all the bolts.

    Got a call off a mate of mine to tell me he's got a V8 disco in his yard with a heavy duty 2" lift kit fitted. Popped down before work and took it off, one front shock bent in a crash and other front shock needs a new bush as we used a oxy torch to remove it. But £50 including four HD springs and a new 4 way window switch was good enough for me.
    Reckon i'll be back for the rear step, and he's got a couple of sets of ES alloys that will probably be mine too.
    Non-Land Rover stuff, just bought a T28 turbo with custom manifold for my Astra track car, up to 380bhp from that bad boy! :D

    Also forgot a couple of days ago i finally cut my EGR pipe off and welded up the hole, put a new, clean pipe from the intercooler and the inlet manifold. Also took the cooler out and my mate filled it with a couple of litres of thinners, swished it around a bit then lit it, the oil in there burned for nearly an hour!!
    Put it back on and its so much better, easily 40% performance improvement and better MPG. Also can really hear the turbo spool up lol.

    front floors is probably windscreen leaking. I got half a pint of water on me leg when I got in the disco this morning. Funny thing is. All the time I owned the 90 I never got a wet knee once.. :doh:

    I fitted some more LED's to mine and also fitted the siren speaker. Checked tyre pressures and added a bit of air to one of my rears.
