Doesn't matter if you have worked on an Omega or another one of your cars which isn't an Omega, just share what you have been doing  :y

Changed pollen filter yesterday, ordered a new radiator which is out of stock and got my philips silver vision bulbs through the post today.

Haven't been able to do anything to the car today as it's at the garage where it's been in for an air con service (filters) and regas.

Your welcome Youth  :y

I had my brake disc & pads arrive yesterday, so this afternoon decided to get them fitted.
Started at front drivers side, found on the 4 pot calipers 2 pistons were seized. So removed the caliper, stripped it, rebuilt it, then decided to spray them Gold. . paint rubbed off sprayed and fitted. .  Only three more to do tomorrow  :D

Replaced rear discs and pads. 

Serviced and adjusted handbrake - bastid heat-shields and even more bastidy cable adjusting nut >:(

Replaced cam sensor and scoped out innards for belt and pump replacement as soon as me joints have calmed down. ;D :y

Changed the passenger door lock motor on the Elite (did the drivers a few months ago), and changed the passenger door seal on it as well.

Rest of day has been running cables through walls, and rearranging some of the insulation in the loft.
