Checked the battery (it's disconnected but I was worried it would discharge due to unhealthy cells and cold temps) reads a healthy 12.4V still... Will maybe get a solar charger sorted for before the AGM hopefully!

Also checked the pingi bags and recharged them. Have a small amount of condensation on the sunroof/drivers side door/windscreen. Probably just from lack of sunlight to burn it off properly.

And had to repair my rx8OC keyring as the emblem fell off the little loop some how!

think you need to put a bit more weight on the front end Chris. Looks like the steering will be light at that angle.
Going ballistic mate!

Finished fitting aero and splash kit today, those rear splash guards were more difficult than everything else due to rusted bolts

and fitted the bucket seats to my car, I just wish you had not lent on the dry powder extinguisher and dusted the whole cabin, new seats and all, due to their being no locking pin in the trigger.
Your seat fitting skills were most appreciated Neil, thank you.

Stupid question from an unobservant muppet - does the passenger PZ wingmirror heat up when you put the rear window heater on? I noticed this morning defrosting the car only the driver's side did and I can't remember ever noticing if the passenger side one did.

Mine has just started making extra noises [random 'knocks' or 'barks'] from the exhaust. Can anybody diagnose from this video, please?

Oil changed on both cars, rx8 brake bleed and new front pads. Puts a ghetto decat half on the back to the cheap cat. Yay for times wasted. Stupid nuts missing.

Sorry, guys, I haven't done this before, and I thought I had selected 'unlisted'. hopefully you can run it now.

I was made aware in this thread that a) I have a tyre inflator in my car and b) the tyre gunk might need updating....
