Likewise, to check battery voltage.

I looked at it in between swearing at an acer tree... Rolling Eyes Smile

I’ll use it for work tomorrow. Very Happy (the Landy, not the acer tree!)

Went to use it for work and found the rear offside tyre is flat. Rolling Eyes Evil or Very Mad

I’ll have to find somewhere open to fix it this week... Rolling Eyes

Had a busy Land Rover day today.
Cleaned out and plated 2 holes in the underside of the rear nearside chassis rail. Disco 2s are very prone to this. Luckily these are the only soft spots on mine. I was very close to the fuel tank so I put in some ally sheet between the tank and the chassis rail to keep the heat and sparks off. Tank is untouched.
Then I did this years engine oil and filter change.

Good fulfilling day for a change.

I ventured into the rear of the Land Rover this afternoon. I removed the spare wheel and all the stuff stored in its well. (A mate made a longer wheel clamp bolt ages ago so I can put the spare wheel in with the well against the bulkhead which gives me a handy storage space for tow ropes and dog leads). I vacuumed the mats, cut an old one to size and put things back that were necessary. Some of the old rubbish is in the sack destined for the bin. I gave it a go and I can still carry the 40k spare wheel under one arm, holding the wheel through the centre hole and I was able to lift it back into the Land Rover.

Little knappster had a “drive” in the Land Rover, as she calls it. Or seating in the driver’s seat and talking at me outside whilst I did an hour of gardening. Smile

The rear nearside tyre is virtually flat again so I’ll have to use my compressor or remove the wheel to take it to the local tyre place. Will give them a call on Monday. Smile

And I bought a rivnut tool to fit the cubby box. A sealy one new on eBay with a selection of rivnuts for under £20 delivered. Very Happy

Used my “new” T-Max air compressor to inflate the flat tyre on the 90. When I say “new”, it was when I bought it a couple of years ago, I just haven’t used it until now.

And I fitted my new club badge to the grille too! It looks very shiny compared to the rest of the Landy. Smile

I also read in CLR that "many of our readers are spending more time in their garages and sheds so that dormant or slow moving projects have suddenly progressed in leaps and bounds" So now I am feeling guilty. Thank you CLR.

That makes two of us Geoff. The 90 gets less attention under lockdownnthan I usually gives it!

I think there are more people changing window runners during lock down based on the amount we are sending out including orders from Germany and Australia

That's good news for the club.
