Fitted high level led tail lights. Pretty pointless, but enjoyed doing a wee project over the last couple of evenings (I'm not quick).

I know. I'm blaming Ron, his sowed the seed. I think maybe I need to get out more.

Stripped out old oil pump in my S3 and put replacement in , filled her up with oil and charged the battery and hay presto shd fired into life and all was well fit about five mins and she's back to how she was before bellowing bout smoke , I have a replacement one coming on wednesday (cheers smiffy) so over next week or so it will be strip him out and get her in so I have my landy in use again.
 Then its strip down time when I get space to find out exactly what is wrong and get it fixed so gave a Spair going forward for both landys if I ever need one again and hints on how to store it far keep it indoors and oil down the cylinders ?
Cheers

Got my rear wheel carrier fitted, courtesy of Shug. All fitted to perfection as usual. Always learn something new when I go to Shugs. Lol

Just a wee paint job required now.



Clever we bracket & spacer



Now with tyre fitted.



Thanks again Shug.
