Tightened up the new PAS-hoses fitted and filled the system, will wait to bleed it properly until car is started up for the season.
Waiting to lend/buy borescope to be able to see where I'm gluing after replacing the heater fan motor in the passenger side panel (this tried my temper, many times..)
Next up replace exhaust mount bushes and get seat bases fixed together with a seam fixed in driver side.

Fitted the Honda Accord drop links to the front and Nissan 200SX ones to the rear - perfect fit. Then off for MOT, which it passed with no advisories ( no advisories for the last 7 years !) If anyone is looking for rear droplinks, these are the ones I fitted :

Not a lot happening in the garage so I squeezed my car trailer in and put it on the ramp.

Renewing all the decking/boards, checking it out, lubing and a general once over.

You would be amazed at the amount of people who dont rolleyes known of a few instances locally of failed bearings , shot tyres, loose bolts etc who find out too late with cars of value on the at the time confused I just dont get it these things dont just fail overnight banghead

Simon, they are probably the same group of people who don't get their cars serviced annually, nor even check their tyre pressures & fluid levels monthly... (these two groups have a very high level of overlap in my experience) so why on earth would it enter their tiny heads to service/ safety check their trailers?

That looks fantastic. Apart from the plenum, was the rest original that was just soda blasted and coated?

The steel brackets and the fuel rail were original, I just dropped them off at the platers and picked them up 2 weeks later. £40 later and it must be the cheapest thing I`ve had done so far.
