It seems that my latest blog update was lost during the recent forum meltdown.

 

I CBA to write all the text again, so this time round I'll let the pictures do the talking :

In other fleet news...

 

The new* Nexens on the Loopoo are absolutely awful. Extremely noisy, prone to locking up under hard braking and simply lethal in the wet. They are one of the worst tyres I've ever driven on, and that's no mean feat. I'm currently looking for affordable replacements, then ebay beckons for the Nexens.

 

The ScAAB continues to provide sterling service, despite its remarkable thirst (30mpg on a run, which isn't great considering its light weight and modest performance). The recent good weather allowed me to take the scuttle panel off to assess the condition of the cabin filter :

How disgusting ! Stamped 2004, and likely to have been in place for at least a decade. That's what happens when cabin filters are expensive and inaccessible - people can't be bothered to replace them.

 

Anyway... £9 later, we had this :

Ah, a breath of fresh air !

I found the same when I changed Mrs Robson3022s cabin filter in her civic. Difference is the filter is in the footwell and is a 30 second job!

They are some great pics; the Landy threw that head gasket out with disgust; and when did you last see a pair or Transit rear doors with so little rust :)

Replacement wheels have now been procured :

Hopefully, most people will think they're just a crappy set of steels.

Yeah, Honda design engineers generally know their stuff. Sadly, there are still exceptions...

The gasket doesn't belong to the Landy, I suspect it was kept in stock for one of the american shitters.

 

The state of the cars left outside was amazing, I had a quick look underneath them (as you do) and they were all really solid. I was really envious !
