Might disconnect a random heater vac pipe to enhance his enjoyment of the day.


In my experience, it’s highly likely you may not need to.

Great to see the photos of you playing with Julian's bits. Looking forward to more photos today 😉

I was a very bad boy today, and failed to take any pics!  @thebartman did though, so hopefully he'll throw some up here later.  His initiation went rather well, I think.  N/S fully assembled and awaiting tightening, and O/S fully stripped (plenty of violence) ready for rebuild.

Your car’s in good hands, Julian but just be aware that (just like AutoSergei or HAL9000), Sparky’s bionic visual sensors automatically scan for things that are hanging off, missing, knackered, bodged, or require heli-coiling.

Brace yourself.

I believe the bionic visual sensors can be dampened by a liberal application of gin. 🙂

It's getting there......

If he can bench press 20 Ton and use his bionic visual sensors properly , he IS the re-incaration of Steve Austin .......

Shiny, new, assembled, road-tested rear renewal complete 😁.   

Hail @Sparky   !!!

Seriously though, the job went quite well with few surprises, and clearly you enjoyed yourself!

@thebartman one more for your file - the only pic I took yesterday.  RH upper arm.  Cleaned up really well with the Dremel, but I forgot to take the 'after' pic, sorry!
