    Too tall a thermostat housing on a xflow

    I've had the same issue with my oil cap when I swapped Xflow to Zetec. I put the nose cone on two 5mm thick alu strips, which in turn raises the bonnet just enough where it matters. You can't see the alu strips with the nose cone fitted.

    November 2018

    The half shaft hubs are 'staggered' in circumference. So if they are 50mm wide (I do not know the exact dimensions), the 1st 40mm is the same diameter as the wheels, but the last 10mm is slightly bigger in diameter. So if I can machine the last 10mm to be the same diameter, my wheels will fit all the way against the hub flange, without having to resort to using a spacer. As it is this spacer (or rather the new ET on the new wheels) that prevent them from fitting in the arches.

    3D printing (plastics)

    I've used https://www.3dhubs.com for 3D printing of some keyboard feet (the flip out ones to raise the keyboard). A pair was £5 (incl £3 postage), and I had it in less than a week. You can pick the material and supply your own file. Quality was good and a year later still holds the keyboard up.

    November 2nd, 2018 Spend: £0.00 Oooh, it's fresh today... November 29th, 2018 Spend: £0.00 Realistically, I'm not seeing the weather being nice enough to drive the car to work and back without getting p*ssed on, so I SORNed it today. I need to get the half-shafts machined so my new wheels fit, and I need to take the petrol tank out to re-fit the pump so it reads on the gauge again. Plenty to do this winter!

    Winter wear

    I use waterproof+windproof snowboarding gear over my normal clothes. Layers is the key to keeping warm though. Motorcycle gloves are also good, but very stiff.

    4 point harness flaping around when strapped in

    I put the excess underneath the lap belts. Strap on the left underneath the left side, and strap on the right underneath the right side.
