Bit of emergency track-fitting today.

Managed to shed a track on the main road right in front of the entrance to camp, with a trailer on, too.

I'm guessing the emergency rations of pease pudding deployed successfully, then. ;)

Changed the diff oil
Or rather I should say I emptied out about a mug of black oily substance and replaced it with a litre and a bit of fresh oil  ::)

The rather whine is still there and getting worse  :(
I can't seem to track where its coming from  :(
I'll check the gearbox at weekend and take it from there  :-\

Filled the Elite up with gas on the 2nd attempt.  In between attempts, another 10,000 miles of rear rubber lost  >:(

Drove it to London and back every day this week. I hate London, but the car was good as gold. :)

Soldered in some new resistors into the Rover's spare blower resistor unit (Rovers always blow them), just need to fit the unit when the car comes back.  Then I'll solder in another set into the one that comes out, so I have a spare on hand...

Two more Continental SportContact 3's fitted to the last two refurbished wheels. Now the V6 has a complete set.

Just have to wait until after December now (Christmas + Tax for two cars on Dec 31st!) then exhaust + uprated suspension  :)
