    Default Damn this weather!!!

    After weeks of me complaining about the heat and the humidity (its not comfy wearing my uniform in this kind of weather), I finally decided to put the weather to my advantage and decided that this afternoon was the day to paint the calipers! I dug out the old tin of blue caliper paint I had in my garage from when I had my Astra G, and away I went... got a wheel off and got one coat of paint on one caliper, and what should happen?? Fate smiled on me, then stuck 2 fingers up and blew a raspberry before opening the heavens and unleashing a hell of a thunderstorm!!!!

    I now have a car sitting on 3 wheels and a jack, I cant find my axle stands, and I have a brolly wedged into the wheelarch! I just hope the rain doesn't affect the paint.

    On the plus side I now have 1 very shiney wheel, having given it 3 coats of wheel wax while waiting for the deluge to finish!

    Hopefully I might get it all finished tomorrow, and I will of coarse comply with the law and post up some pics!
