  • Old age catch's up ---------------

    ----------- Ouch -- done mi flippin shoulder a mischief ----- decided to give the Vectra's brake calipers a coat of red Smoothrite.
    Got the trolly jack out ready to take the wheels off. when don't ask me how ---- i tripped over the damn thing and went flying and landed with my left shoulder taking the impact.
    Looks like i won't get them done for PVS, as my left shoulder and arm are rather sore at the moment.

    The worst part about it is that i am a left handed drinker, ah, well, not to worry i've still got mi other hand

    Sorry to hear of your accident Leo perhaps you could get Smudge to paint the calipers for you at PV...... no perhaps not. Smudge, Tools & car shows don't go do they

      Ooh!! Bad luck Leo, hope you get better soon mate

      I've managed to avoid any further injuries getting the cars ready for PV this week, after slicing my finger open with the Dremel the other week trimming the wheel arch liner on the Vectra Four more days to go next week, hopefully everyone will be in one piece when they get to Santa Pod

          And there's me working on my Vectra this weekend.

          I normally ended will some sort of blood being spilt - I was removed the stereo equipment the other weekend and I caught my thumb on the underside of the seat. It was a nightmare trying to stop the drips getting onto the carpet & seats.

                      Surely with 19" snowflakes you can paint through the spokes.....I can do that on the range rover sport wheels I have on the Disco, its very handy
