Wrap it in cotton wool for another year because you are not going to want those nice wheels all dirty?

Couldn't resist a little photo opportunity this weekend while having Teejay here to sort out his sloppy gear linkage & lack of 6th.

Photo's are courtesy of Teejay as for some reason the camera on my phone has gone to s**t following a recent update & as this was a bit of a "spur of the moment" thing I didn't have a proper camera on me.

My god, has 6 months nearly passed already?

Time to wake the old girl up next month (March) to get ready for being back on the road at the beginning of April which is when it's annual 6 months tax will begin!

MOT runs out 26th March so need to get her ready to be driven to the test center a couple of weeks before that so the preparation begins.

As always, charge the battery (stored in a nice warm cupboard in my house prior to next use) & hope it's survived LOL!

Then, a big clean of the white alloys followed by multiple coats of Poorboys alloy wax (there's an afternoons work right there).

Then oil & filter change.

Pre MOT work this time (not that it's required but I have to get her up on all 4 corners to put the alloys back on so may as well do it at the time) is....

Fit the Goodridge braided flexi brake pipes I got for Christmas.
Fit the MTec drilled & grooved rear disks, pads etc I'm buying as we speak.
Replace brake fluid.

Once the MOT is passed (no advisories last year so I'll be shocked if they find any this year) then the list goes on.

Weld in the additional bracket on the O/S suspension turret to finally fit the V6 upper torsion mount (thanks to V6 Steve for that one).

Replace dodgy rear exhaust manifold with the mint C25XE one I acquired this year (unless this guy on FB comes up with the proposed SS tubular ones he's talking about, I'll judge that when it happens).

Replace yellow injectors with the blue ones I've had for over a year & had ultrasonically cleaned etc.

Properly torque knock sensors which I took a flyer on when then 3.2 went in with a spanner (or replace if I've killed them).

Hopefully, we should all be good! :lol:

I should hope it passes without an issue... You've hardly driven it (as usual). :twisted:

Unless of course they've cleared up the confusion about the airbag light?

Nah, I'm safe with that one. Always use the same test centre & they're happy with it.

Think I did something like 350 miles in it last year, should try & get it out a bit more this year really!

So you spent more time fitting the 3.2 than you have driving it?
