    And a close up of the white sticker?

    True, there's a 'p' missing, but you get the idea

    Get them edited and I'll take two for the estate

    Fitted new brake pads - a third set in two weeks! - and I did it all by myself

    Geppetto did lend a hand to bleed the brakes though

    I also took a ratchet to all visible bolts under the arches and found a fair few bolts were needing nipped up!

    That should sort out the strange rattling

    Oil topped up and I greased the nips too

    Productive hour on the car

    Finally straightened up my steering wheel, been bugging me since I got my tracking done Also made an attempt to fit my KAD quickshift, got all the way to having to move the two pins that hold on the bayonet cover then put it all back together the way it was. Might have a look at the front suspension again tonight, see if I can drop it down.

    It's simple, if it jiggles, it's fat.

    Sorted Smurf's slight steering issue. Turns out there was slight play in the OS track rod end and the NS was virtually sized.

    I washed The Minibot ahead of Linlithgow Car Show tomorrrow! Look!



    And it even started first turn of the key after it's bath!

    Guess it was worth the £200 for the powerlite starter then...

    Front seats and carpets removed and thoroughly cleaned, The 'Bot will be looking its best tomorrow

    Is it only me doing mini stuff these days?

    Granted this was two months ago!

    So, anyhow - The Bairn Bus (Honda FRV) goes in for an MOT tomorrow, and as a 2005 year old car, I expect to see some failures

    As I need two cars for the weekly commute, The Minibot was given a cheeky bit of attention (still taxed and tested for life's little inevitabilites )

    Started it up and let it tick over for 15 minutes whilst me and my Dad hunted for a a replacement [WORKING] heater matrix.

    Thankfully, we found it, so I have plans to work on The 'Bot tomorrow to give it some fire breathing power!

    Good work there by team inception

    So this weekend saw mini Stig and mini mini Stig get a long overdue bath. Then it was time to empty mini mini Stig and take him to his winter vacation spot which luckily gave us a nice sunny drive together
