    Default Quite a productive weekend

    In some sorts.

    Managed to get the correct oil filter for the Tigra so changed the oil. It barely does 5k miles a year so will change again in 6 months so put Halfords 10w-40 semi in.

    And the Vectra got treated to new rear discs and pads. Was a bit of a challenge changing them, don't think they have ever been changed (68k?) but after some brute force, lots of WD-40, some copper grease and only one skinned knuckle they are done and working fine. Only 2 real problems were the retaining springs would not come off on either side, had to work around that and on the NS, the torx screw rounded as soon as I looked at it but after a bit of hammering a flat head screwdriver in, it came loose.

    Also changed the fog lights to match the HID's, I was going to take the splash tray off to retrieve a long lost tool but most of the torx are rusted solid.

    So, what you been doing so far this weekend?

    I've fitted the 6th and 7th seat conversion to my Signum this morning, and also fitted an electric motor to the rear axle, which now allows the car to run on electric power alone for 4 miles, as long as I don't exceed 38 mph.

    I'm about to have lunch, after that if the weather stays ok I'll be lengthening the rear overhang of the car, to give it as much boot space as the estate model.
