fark all, blowing a gale and raining all day. Was going to wire up my new thermo fan, and fix my wiper washers, but instead sat in the shed and played motor bike, in front of the fire.

Took the day off work buy Mazda 626 1986 seats from the wreckers, turned out they were 87 which won't work brought (too high in base) brought and fitted Suzuki GTI seats instead to the MK, with minor mods they look great and are very comfortable. Also sorted engine knock. (slight leak at injector causes sound like sloppy gudgion pin "watch that one, if low pressure injection on SD33 or SD33T it causes a poor burn resulting in a bad knocking sound)

I have been spending most of the arvo tidying up some body work. Sanding, priming, bogging, painting. Gave my old sunny rims a fresh coat of gloss black too.

Replaced the drag link and tie rod end ball joints on the MK, getting set up to do the steering links and after that check out the cost of re-chroming the running boards.

Radiator flushed. (a good handful of rust flakes and other goodies came out) Inspected front shocks. (disconnected top of shock, it moves up and down with little or no dampening looks like the front end float problem is solved)
Inspected front brakes. (The passenger side disk has been smashed and a good two inch piece is missing, it been ground off smooth on a bench grinder and just clears the pads" "Strike One to the Bush Mechanic". Ordered two new ones $31 each from Repco. (seems their old stock and going cheap!)

Getting a new shorty "Is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you get" (Forrest Gump)
