After 4 weeks confined to sickbay whilst a clutch master cylinder was sourced and couriered from the USA, the Evora is now back gracing my driveway. Yeh! Withdrawal symptoms now subsiding.

Starting to rebuild...

 

just a bit of vanity, really, as it will likely have to come out again to sort the electrics, but it DID feel like I'm finally making progress.

Funny how you can spend ages rebuilding bits of the engine and feel like you've done sod all, but a few bits of trim clipped into place gives you such a huge boost!

I found the cause of the damp under the bath !!!!  It can be added to a dripping stopcock, and a leaking cistern I had already sorted out.  This bathroom looked great initially .  However the plus side is  is its so small I repiped the lot in copper and the waste in plastic in an afternoon.  Almost makes me look back fondly at days fighting the esprit.

I was coming back from Castle Combe a couple of weekends ago and some young bloke in a BMW 116 in the outside lane screamed away from the lights on the dual carriageway leading to the M4. Normally I just ignore it and can't be bothered but this time... I ambled gently away from the lights, let him get well ahead then floored it. Caught him up in a blink, slowed down a bit and matched his speed (probably around that nine-zero number) for a few seconds then hit it again. He disappeared into a dot in the rear view mirror. Shouldn't do that, it can be very detrimental to the licence!

Yeah, nil point at the moment to quote that funny 70's game show and it does bother me. I tend to hit it hard in short bursts and get it back down quickly. I'm not sure how reliable the speed cameras are on clocking you during acceleration and deceleration. Well that's my hope anyway!

That would explain the hole in yer fifth gear casing. 

Deceleration in fifth gear overrun is the route of all UN1 evil, wack it down into forth and let the big gears take the strain.

So happy that the NHS recognised my 55th Birthday this year with a surprise fun pack.  I used it this morning (jolly japes) and am now in the Endoscopy Unit awaiting the second half of my gift.

However, I was 'seen to' by four very nice ladies.  In and out in a flash, so to speak.

I had an endoscopy after a Colonoscopy in the same "sitting". I never did ask if they used the same camera!!!

Years ago, I do remember a nurse telling me they only had the one camera and an overworked autoclave.  I always push for an early morning appointment.

Camera in the bladder? Done that. It's like having a Granada clutch cable shoved up your Jap's eye.

Sparky's the only bloke I know who's got a season ticket for such procedures.
