    Anyone else been tinkering today

    i headed to halfords - p600, p800, p1200, charged up my trusty cordless drill & stuck on a metal polishing kit thing on it. then i got high on nitromores, burnt my skin (through gloves) and at long last i got round to ridding myself of that black cover that looms over the z20let lump - i now have a nice shiney polished one after 5 hrs work

    would post a pic but i still have 1 more item to polish up tomorrow before i expose my bling to the world

    Yeah - I had a tinker - replaced the battery in the 888 with a 75amp jobbie as everytime I go away it goes flat, but the bloody bolt on the clamp was siezed so ended up drilling it out always the way - a 5min job turns into a half hour in the freezing cold

    Also did a bit more work on my new front grill....should be finished tomorrow...

    I washed mine, vacuumed inside, refitted the Irmy grille properly this time (it was dark when it went on first time round).

    Yes, it was cold, and I lost the bap with the power washer a few times, but it got me out of the house for 3 hours anyway.
