    Once again i failed to transit my garage without doing something,




    Dust shields rivited on with my new rivet tool,decals applied and carriers bolted up temporary. Measured the pads that came with the calipers and they are within a hair of the specs for new thickness,genuine jag items, stacked it on the way home from the dealership after fitment????? so i think i will clean them up on the faces and refit them. Also ordered some copper crush washers for the banjo bolts,leave just the discs and rear pads, i had them in my basket at MTEC and was offered a code for 15% which they pulled overnight, just cant bring my self to buy now until i get that voucher back.

    What a joy, my whole garage to myself, after domestic chores this morning in prep for the Return of The Badger i found these in the post box



    So i did a little bit more on the bus brakes, cleaned up the faces of the front pads and fitted them, found a way to get the spring plates on without damage, you dont need any tools for this BUT you need the grip of a yorkshire knuckle dragger and visualise it as a twenty pound note...

    Then i just had to,



    Look well and fill the gap, i did the same with my spare 19's and they fit in there too.

    Then i managed to get the Jagdroid to play music from my phone and from the USB stick, this is the big news of the day, hard going in these techy times for a lad like me.

    The brake colour combo looks really good with those wheels. I don't think I will have the strength to fit those spring plates lol

    Did you find the key for your post box?

    I'm pleased you got that Jagdroid working.
