Washed the roof on the 90 ready for the roof rack. Smile No time to do any more as I had to do the nursery run.

Just got to find time to collect the roof rack this week. Rolling Eyes

I had twenty minutes before collecting baby knappster from nursery so I managed to polish the roof too. My neighbour asked if it was Christmas for the Landy. Rolling Eyes

It will be when it gets the roof rack! Smile

I bought a new set of spark plugs for the Land Rover from an excellent local independent motor factor. The plugs came in individual cardboard boxes not the plastic bubble pack they usually come in and they were in stock. They're NGK BP6ES.
I'll fit them soon, not an arduous job and I not forgetting copper grease on the threads.

No time for Landy activity. DIY instead. But Ill use it to take the garden waste to the tip tomorrow. Several trips too. But this is a discussion weve had in tumbleweed a few times. Smile

Pick up and fitted my new roof rack. But during a trip to the tip, the exhaust failed behind the centre box. Looks like a new one is needed. A job for next week.

Contacted Brownchurch via email to order a few more brackets for the roof rack. Their website is one page only with an email address and a telephone number so Im not sure whether the company is selling off its last stock. Their reply stated they do still have the brackets so Im waiting for a reply tho place an order.

Ordered some more fitting brackets from Brownchurch. Got a couple of spares too.

Special repair #1, using a cable tie to temporarily keep the exhaust secure until Monday when I can get it repaired properly. Smile

My local Indy mechanic reckons the pipe is easily welded as the rest of the pipe and box is otherwise okay so hell weld it back together. Smile

I fitted new spark plugs to the Land Rover this afternoon and not altogether straightforward as the plug leads were reluctant to go on the new plugs but did it eventually and it fired up nicely.
The old plugs were clean but I noticed the centre electrode was worn. I remembered the copper grease on the threads of the new plugs.
