Made an extension to the gear stick to compensate for long legs.

Changed my MPi Coopers oil and oil filter as well as a new set of spark plugs.

 

Along with the new air filter a few weeks ago i am really happy with how the car is now running. Just in time for it to be garaged until the new year!

 

Oh i also grabbed a look underneath properly and was really happy with what I saw. No rust, no patches and a nice clean underside.

 

When i get the new exhaust (xmas present to myself) I will be pretty a happy chappy

 

(think I had oil on my phone lens!)

last night I managed to refit the window winder on passengers side by following new advice I found on the forum, by having the window about half way down in window and have the winder mechanism loose and try to attach it to the rails under window and then bolted mechanism back to door and it is all reattached, gained a few cuts on hand doing it but glad I know how to fit it now...another tip, I used G-clamps to hold the connections to the rails. The winder mechanism is not great so will need a new one I think but the window will stay up for now.

Adjusted rear drums, finally lowered the drivers seat (taken 15 years to do that one) and went for a lovely drive over the downs in clear blue autumn skies!

ohhhhhh I have been active! Fitted the seat extenders to the drivers seat over the weekend. Much nicer driving position

 

Although i have two issues, the hook doesn't fit for the tilt mechanism. Secondly, the seat is very tight on the door pillar/rear internal quarter panel.

 

Is this normal?

Mine touch the rear bins even without seat extender brackets.. I'm only 5' 10" or so but I have my seat as far back as it goes and it touches the rear bin so without offsetting to the side a little there is a limitation on how far you can go.

 

Mine are SPi seats, which are slightly different.

Same issue here with the tilt mechanism. Try moving the seat forward a click so the tilting mechanism engages then move the seat back a bit more, worked for me.

Thanks Panky, will try this some time during the week.

 

Most of my time is currently spent trying to get a Volvo Amazon running that has sat still for 15 years!
