And no, my phone doesn't have a potato camera. It's actually a turnip.

I knew my rear pads were wearing unevenly, but I didn't think it was that bad! The outer pad on the drivers side looked like this:

And the inner was stuck solid and looked like this:
af8b94d17a620a70d69391f19bd903e5.jpg

Now it looks like this:

All seems to be nice and free now, hopefully it stays like that! Ideally I'd like to change the calipers for ones that don't look like they've been in the north sea since 1996, but that's a job for another day.

Replaced the reverse light switch on the filthy passat. A bit awkward as it is in the kind of position whereby access from both above and below is limited. Part cost £26 - I now have working reverse lights and parking sensors.

I don't know how fast weather travels but I got caught in something like that at 6.30 in Shipley when I was riding my bike.

Thankfully I was next to a train station so hid in the bike shelter for 15 minutes till it passed.

Recently discovered the Hubnut channel,  hours of entertainment. Well done Ian and keep up the vids on random chod.  I haven't watched normal TV in about 2 weeks.

 

Exciting car news, the 75 needs a new NSF tyre, and the annual NS indicator fail that is quickly cured by some use of electrical contact cleaner in the front bulb holder.  

 

I had another enquiry for the Rover recently, the answer is still no not for sale but nice to be asked I suppose.

The problem is what they forget to take with them when they leave.

I'd post a list of what was left on Bills lane field, a couple of years back, but rather than that I'll tell you that it's all clean now and the scorched earth has grass now, and I would feel confident this year picking the wild blackberries and raspberries and apples that grow around the edge of the field.

Thing is, this is on private land, and the landowner is not arsed. Mind you, I agree the extra traffic may cause some overspill.

 

I've heard conversations in Bulwell today like 'watch out for the gyppos' and 'nail everything down the gyppos are coming'. 

 

Completely unwarranted IMHO.

 

I might wander up as a guest and have a looksee when it's all set up.
