Ahhh don’t be fooled - spend the last day and a half wiring 88 chicken shed lights with feed and 0-10v cables......

You feed the lights? I thought just the chickens would get fed.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

So now we know why these poor birds get blown up with water to make them look big. Barry dont feed the poor things. Just go to ask though. How do you feed lights on 10V cables.

Now the pipe ends are sitting in a bubbling cup of caustic and boiling water. It all looks very nasty !!

this is being done outside i must add as the gasses it gives off ain’t good for you. I will rinse off with the hose pipe after dinner and see if it’s worked

Rad pack bolted back in - it’s cold out there today - and now it’s snowing.

the fixings round the back of the braking cluster are horrible to get to. Another horrible job ticked off.

will connect the pipes and wire up the fans in the week sometime. Then maybe I can actually chuck some petrol in it and fire the old dog up

He's getting slacker.

In the old days, he'd have done all the work and sold it as he was tightening up the last bolt.

It’s not for sale and really won’t be. I’m simply not doing this again. I have brakes and suspension left to do and then it can have some paint work loving. Then - I’m keeping it and enjoying driving.

It’s freezing today - been in a cold shed all day. Come home and I’ve forced myself to fettle in yet another freezing cold shed.

fans wired up all nicely. Top and bottom hoses fitted onto the rad. Oil cooler bolted back in place. Popped off and picked up a 20l can of petrol to put in the tank.

now far far too cold to even consider anymore. Fire lit - and I’m in front of it looking at my fishes and frogs
