Nothing. But I did rebuild the back calliper on the Tiger, and clean all the gunk out from behind the front sprocket cover. And order new seals for the pistons on the front callipers, which are also weeping fluid, I noticed today.... :roll:

Tomorrow when I get back from work I will be getting a new starter battery for the van, as the one I have seems to only be holding 10.1 volts :?: Seems to start okay though.....

Did a service on the doka, which included three hours (yes, 3) to change one spark plug. Nicely stripped thread on cylinder 3. Ended up brute forcing the new one in, the engine runs fine but the next time I need to change plugs I'm going to have to change the whole head :roll:

Ground out and vactaned the seams on the offside of the camper.

Helped samk with his snapped droplinks which is a gazillion times harder than the wiki let's on. Also helped put the new rubber on his recon Westie poptop and strap it in place.

Fit in a pint and cooked a roastie-roo.

Got a voltmeter wired in at last, got so far through wiring up and fitting a dvd player & screen that was givn to me to keep the kids quiet, replaced the front window seals. Really good to see the Temp sensor post - id been wandering why mine didnt work... Oh and stuck the engine lid seal down properly - I had no idea my van could be quiet!!

Great weeknd for fiddling, and also for ignoring the jobs on the house :ok

Next on the list is a gate f some sort to stop kids faling out of the pop top, thinking of modifying an old cot side... wll let you all kno how it goes

I took mine to a T3 garage a good hours drive away. Compression test, carb refurb, and a bunch of other stuff to have done if the budget is enough. I´m dreading the phone call.

Sea front is looking good with all the money they are chucking at it. Think we might pay a visit to Shewbury East Beach one sunny weekend soon.
