    Spring clean started.

    Mowed the lawns so I thought Id reward myself with a bit of spring cleaning on the car.

    Removed the pipework from the air filter to the carb/throttle body. Cleaned the whole lot internally, throttle body and carb, with carb cleaner. Treated rust in the area. Item 10 on my list. All back together.

    Lubricated the aerial. Always feel better when I have achieved something, even if its something small.

    Is that a euphemism? Don't worry, size isn't everything.
