A bit late, but is there anything you would like me to bring along tomorrow? And I'm presuming you want us there shortly before gates open at 9:00?

Cheers,

I got a shopping list from John earlier this evening and am taking along what they need. (Might be a little later than you, Duncan, as I have to get one of the items on the list first thing in the morning). Simon is likely to be there early, as he is staying overnight nearby. But if you could make 9.00, that would be great.

Are you bringing muffins? :wink3

Might find time to do Milk Choc Chip, Cherry and Vanilla. Any toolkit we're short of, or consumables?

Another hard day's work by Johnny, Simon, Jeremy, Duncan and Paul (possibly 2) has resulted in this :o

Image

Rear calipers exchanged and it now has a reasonable brake pedal. Servicing, and interior to go tomorrow :D

Fun and games in our k1tchen tonight as I tried to rewire one of the door mirrors using the harness from a 1997 Coupe mirror.

should have been a 10 minute job with the soldering iron, but the design has changed between 1991and 1997! :slapme
Nothing that a further cut and join won't sort out, but I will need to dig some heatshrink sleeving out of the garage in the morning.

Lots of interest in the car from visitors today and Paul's 45 has drawn in a number of 'HHR' 400 and 45 owners who were pleased to learn that we now include their cars in our club :)
