Not really necessary, enough slack on them.

Ever felt short and that you really need reach adjustable steering?

If so, welcome to my club.

Now I just need Edward Scissorhands' hands. Or Gulliver's.

Fitted LED DRL

 
 

They are automatic and come on after starting and go off after about 15 seconds after switch off.  They dim to about 1/10th when lights are on.

Black grab handles arrived, so all I need to do is paint the head liner.

Today I traveled 230km under heavy rain, the roof insulation proved to be very effective.

I picked up the scrapyard gen3 wheels from the refurbishers.  These are going on the LCV (I'm not keen on the rather angular gen4 alloys, and they're out of stock anyway).  Will have Bridgestone AT002 tyres and TPMS valves fitted tomorrow.

That looks brilliant, looking forward to seeing those fitted.
Though I have steelies from an LCV, I have kept my SZ5 alloys. I like the of bothe sets equally, but hate chipping alloys.

I took the alloys to have tyres fitted.  They are struggling with them - apparently the ratio of tyre weight to wheel weight is so high that a lot of balancing weights are needed.  I expect this with cheap tyres, which tend to be heavy and non-uniform, but not with Bridgestones!  They are talking about 300g of weights per wheel, when 100g is normally considered the "forget it" point.

Update: they've given up.  They can static balance them, but that's no good at 70mph when the wheel is shimmying around the kingpin.  Will have to call etyres on Monday.  There is a really good local fitter who has always balanced things perfectly for me, but I shouldn't have to pay twice.
