Nothing too spectacular for me, fitted new discs and pads on the front.  Still waiting to get it in the shop to get the manifold studs drilled out so it hasn't moved in a week  >:(

Cleaned the big streak of bird poo off before it gets my paintwork!

N.B. Incase anyone doesn't know, when a bird makes a mess on your car, clean it off soon, as it attacks the paint, and even when cleaned off after being left on for a while, leaves a mark.

Apparently that's not the only thing you have to worry about now..

According to the Daily Panic Express we now have super acidic death pollen sweeping in to eat the paintwork on our cars.. (I may have renamed it slightly..)

Yesterday.

Changed Alternator for one from a scrappie and found out it was a dud...... swapped it for a lesser alternator to get me out of the plop and found out it was a dud, shouted and screamed and almost cried at the bloke at the scrappie who was very apologetic and gave me yet another 120amp alternator (why didn't he give me it instead of the lesser one?) and all is happy in the land of battery charging.

Today.

Washed and waxed the Omega, temp top-up of Transmission Fluid until fluid replacement next weekend, popped down to my Brothers and changed Oil & Filter, Coolant, Front and rear brake pads, Front Discs and brake fluid on his Astra G 1.8.  Told him his air filter looked like my Vax Vacuum bag, to which he replied "It'll do for another 6 months", came home, kicked the cat (accident) now I'm cooking dinner.  Still haven't found 30mins to drive over to Robg and pick up a simple bloody PCB.  >:(

Brothers, who needs them?
