Went to the local scrapper today, got a passengers seat belt to replace my very slow rewinding one. While I was there I got a full set of chrome rubbing strips to replace the colour coded ones on my 04 plate facelift, was dismayed by the price for new clips to hold them on from Rimmers. Found some "genuine" ones on e bay, cheaper than Rimmers but still £1.52 each with postage Still it will look more classy in my opinion.

Collected it from the garage where they fitted a wishbone, tank strap and door latch (supplied by me) and an unexpected ARB, and an A/C regas (first time I've had it done.)


That's it for spending money on you. Are you listening, hmm?






Until the next time...
