They worked ok then? No wobble caused by them?

Kirkynut

So far so good. I have been up to 45mph with no noticeable wobble. The PVC tubing stuck in the back to keep the spline away from the magnet weighs almost nothing.


Goody Gum Drops! I couldn't see anything to go wrong if something light is used to stop the gear sliding back but I don't want to be responsible for something going wrong!

That is the business. You'll be telling us next you have a Mexico or RS 2000 or Golf GTi. All my favs even if I don't 'do' manual shift anymore.

Do it right - use Hammerite

I tried fixing my interior light. Inside there's a spring and a ball bearing that push on the bulb to illuminate and I think it must have worn down so I stretched the spring a little. it has helped but could do with replacing it.

I also cleaned the seatbelt retainer, I read on here it can help it operate a bit smoother when I had a look I couldn't believe how much crud has accumulated.

Which one Martin - Big Jimny or Little Jimny?

I got busy on mine today fitting the nylon transfer box mounts that came supplied from Redacted back on it and new front panhard rod bushes.

I've also put my locking wheel nuts back on and some new wheel nuts.

The other day I fitted axle breathers too.
