A lovely spring weather evening called for a spontaneous trip with my son and daughter.  Pulled over at Althorp estate and got few nice pictures.

After I replaced my front wishbones I knew I needed the wheel alignment checked and so I booked it in with Northampton Motorsport.  Was very surprised to learn that the car only weighs 680Kg.  I expected it to be a lot more given the size of the engine.

Attended the Westfield-Chesil factory open day.  A great turnout at the new facilities in Bicester.

It's the Annual National Drive your Westfield to Work Day(Week) and as the organiser I obviously had no choice but to visit the office.




However, on the way back, about 12 miles before reaching home I noticed my right front cycle wing dancing around.  As it turns out, the cycle wing stay had broken off.  I managed to limp home and drop the thing off at Precision Welding who has done lots of bits for me in the past

Since having the alignment done, my steering wheel was no longer straight when going in a straight line.  But as the boss was tight fitting, I had to fabricate a steering wheel puller.  This was my first time using the welder I got for my birthday 2 years ago and after practising a few lines, I was confident enough to start.




It's not the prettiest of welds, but it has worked a treat, and the steering wheel is back on straight.
