I fitted a full set of MTEC drilled discs and Mintex pads :thumbsup:

Don't worry, wheels were included in the wash later!

Then home washed dried and tucked away until next time. :D

My E Type Jag came from Bodmin.
I imported into Australia in 2007.
That explains the a local tale. The Beast of Bodmin.It roamed the moors for years and then mysteriously vanished, so the legend goes. :o

Obvious to me now. They where talking about your E-type. :D :thumbsup:
I think we all need to see some photos of The Beast of Bodmin don't we? After all :worthless:

A bit of preventative maintenance on the DISA-

X8R upgrade kit fitted

Simple job but another peace of mind one- and the pin in the old one was 'ok' but not 'safe!

It’s a bit crusty on the bend before it goes behind the plastic undercover, annoyingly the other pipe has been replaced. Why the PO didn’t do both at the same time!!!

Took my Zed to my trusted Indi BMW garage for Brake fluid & Coolant change. He gave it a health check whilst it was there. Couldn't fault it. :driving: He said it was in great shape and well cared for. 16 years old 76k and only failed one MOT in its life and that was the headlight aim.
Well chuffed. :trampoline:

Failed it's MOT. Knew about the snapped front spring - I supplied the garage with new ones to fit, but turns out my brake lines are not passable. I knew they were marginal but hoping they would be good until after the winter. Waiting to get a quote for the work; don't mind working on my own car but brake lines are a bit beyond my reach.

Good news is that everything else is good; just the lines need replacing, front and back :|

Did my brake pipes across rear axle last year bit fiddly but glad I did them they were rotten was well worth the effort.
Just finished renewing ccv valve & piping another fiddly job ticked off. Hopefully no oil smell in car now ( fingers crossed)

Noticed the right side back box had suddenly dropped an inch. On investigation, the two flange brackets have cracked. Which I gather is not that uncommon? Repair kit on order.
