Havent touched mine for the last few days. Decided its pointless trying to work on it between shifts, when Im not properly awake - cant concentrate.
Finish work for 6 days tomorrow morning, so will get onit tomorrow afternoon - finish the cambelt job, put everything back, then inlet fanimold off to trace coolant leak.
After that - finish changing the interior for the Elite interior.
Then, in the near future - a good tidy up of the LPG system.

Yeah its a right bugger, Today I are be mostly...installing telematics in the boot, only to realise half way through that I had screwed into the frame completely arse backwards ... Muppet! >:(  :-[  :D

Not done an awful lot to the car, just read and cleared all fault codes to see what comes back ::)

Oh... And modified a wiring loom to better suit my purposes... Only took me about 3 hours including Tea Breaks though, not the whole day it took some shouty bloke :-X ::) :D

Its also been a bugger not having a car since Monday. The bike has racked up a lot of miles this week. I even had a big box with a pair of ex. manifolds in, bungeed to the back, to go the 3 miles to the post office on weds. ::) ;D

Nothing aside from narrowly avoiding having the car demolished by the twonk in his Porsche Panamera who decided he clearly had right of way to turn right from his lane across the oncoming traffic despite the presence of the big green Omega with it's headlights on..

Brakes work well, though, fortunately!

Added about 20" to the shortest ones so should be ok :-/ :-/

Seriously considering adding a little to the LPG injector plugs to get them round the back too but don't really see the point... Running them up the front is easy enough ;)

Fitted facelift rear lights to my estate and new clear side repeaters.

Still not sure if I prefer clear facelift rear lights over the smoked old one yet.

Change a brake light lamp
Topped up Diff - took about 1/2 litre
Topped up ATF - took about 2 litres.

Was after doing a few hundred motorway miles, noticed a bit of a drone.
So checked both fluids above, and rear wheel bearings which seemed ok to my feel, but keeping a close eye.

Also checked oil level / colour and was best colour it has been at 1500 miles from last service since Ive had the car. 

Be interesting to see how it drives tomorrow.

Just replaced the mid section of the exhaust...  Which of course was siezed into the back box, which after alot of intimidation (with the air hammer), I managed to free up...  Sady, the bit of pipe leading to the back box didn't particularly like being beaten with the air hammer and decide to try and part company...

I guess I'll be buying some Chemical Metal tomorrow!!!
