Pic is one of yours dude, lol.
Bloody need a new caliper now as well as the brake line snapped off inside it  :(
List is growing......

Still to do:
ARB bushes
Find a caliper
new front discs & pads
change rear wheels.

Really enjoyed the trip back from the MOT station the other day & am itching to drive the car again !

List is getting smaller matey, at least it's just little and simple things really, it's getting the parts that takes the time awaiting for the postey and local motor factors to get them in.

I have the 5 with me today matey, I will pop around after work so you can have a look at my clutch ratchett to make sure yours is done the same :D  should be with you about 5:15ish

see you later then.
Track rod end arrived & new steering rack gaitors fitted (I've had them for about 10 years, knew they would come in handy one day  :mrgreen: ) just waiting for the caliper to arrive, hopefully tomorrow. Got the pads ready to put in them. Will fit the other wheels in a bit as well. Then the worst job (IMO) the ARB bushes, I hate doing them, you can never seem to get the car high enough on the drive & I know the bolts will sheer off on the outers, I hope the inners will come off ok.

Done one side of the ARB's, track rod end is on, just waiting for the caliper now & then I'll swap to the other side & bleed the brakes, job done & back in for MOT.
