after fitting a new front set of KYB shocks yesterday (after the "fakes" debacle), I finished the job properly with another full geometry alignment.  Pleased to report front and rear are all in the green, car drives great B) ...in fact...better than ever if I may say so myself.  feels super planted, firm and tight

After changing over from winter to summer tyres/wheels on Friday last week...

 

Today i checked the tyre pressures  - first time on the summer set [Goodyear F1] since last September when they went into storage.

 

They were all around 28 or 29 psi, so increased to 32 psi all round, car now goes like it's gained a turbo, and the handling is a joy! B)

Today i fitted the super dooper deluxe sun screen cover marketed via Amazon by 'FREESOO' [although it wasn't so free costing £23.99]

 

The backend of my car is nicely sheltered in the shade but i wanted something BIG to cover whole windscreen and both door windows. 

This seems to do the job, also covers the wipers, door mirrors too with room to spare.

The shiny aluminium finish should reflect the suns heat, and keep the inside of car from getting oven hot, we will see....

Tried to stick one end of the fuel tank heat shield back on after it sheared last night. Will see how well it's stuck tomorrow. 

 

that thing is a pain in the ass

 

I resorted to bending the edges of it over the fuel tank lip with some pliers to keep it in place.  Seems to have held fine for a year

I finished my super cheap (maybe 10 quid) and super lightweight (about 3kg total) "sound proofing" in the rear cabin and boot area today

 

Totally pleased with the results, quieter than my friends lexus now :D  even the exhaust is quieter in the cabin.

 

 

I await confirmation from another member before I post details.

Replaced smashed up rear light custer with replacement from AMS, and properly secured fuel tank exhaust heat shield with proper machine screws and washers in prep for today's MOT.

 

Heat shields are a thing for the MOT now, so check yours.  Its only the "Fire Risk" ones such as manifold, cat and fuel tank shields.

Not a done to, but a done with....

 

Used my 7 to jump start our generator for our 500 attendee Outdoor Cinema event in the estate of a stately home.  Terrible movie (greatest showman), but the 480 ladies attending loved it.  Pretty much maxed out our enormous soundsystem and gained some temporary deafness.

 

Awesome night.  wouldn't have happened if I didn't have my jump leads and a willing battery :)
