    A bodgy fix to my door seal but I do have a spare to swap it with but may just throw that on the other vec that needs it more.

    Had a really fine long cut along it. No longer.

    MOT due soon. Maybe rear pads but no other concerns unless they find something.

    Swapped my non broken fans over and fitted.

    Been working on the CD70 which has been failing to read copies, a dry laser clean appeared to resolve issue but was getting skipping.

    Have revisited with some cleaning solution and a cotton bud and will see how it goes over the week.

    Cage has arrived and I am still awaiting GPS Ariel - If I am fully happy this will be installed flush, if not I will either replace laser inside then decide to keep or sell as CD70 is quite gosh compared to any aftermarket H/U to be honest.

    Not sure.

    Is it full can? Its broken and maybe useful for parts?

    Could always use spares but nobody down your way. Could offer cover postage if came to it.

    Bought new cd70 brackets, cage and a spare drive just in case.

    Had front panel SMD converted but not happy with the colour match or the fact front is still a bit wobbly so will perfect this later.

    Vec went in for MOT and failed so undergoing repair asap.

    Been a while since updating,not had time or felt up to it as recently had an OP and been busy healing and tramadol sailing.

    MOT failed on a few bits.

    Historic chunk out my ARB failed and needed to replace whole ARB.

    Always had a suspension issue with suspected estate spring been in mix. Confirmed 2 rears were hugely different and the drivers corner snapped so rather than doing a pair. Thrown on a 30mm LO lowering spring kit.

    NS arm had give. Needed replacing. Had rear pads and droplinks i had spare fitted while there.

    Still to get car 4 wheel aligned asap.

    Bought a parrot kit for cheap but more chew than fitting the pioneer by far. Least its in and adds phone/iPod support without blowing money on trying to make the cd70 less 3rd world.
