    Covid 19

    Its been a strange stint since this happened. It is nice to see some normality, had lunch out on Sunday and a few pints and it all felt very normal. The vaccine situation I will leave up to others to discuss but I respect everyone's individual decision on it and think it's pretty sad how...

    Worst ways you spent your money on your car

    Trying to think about more stuff... How about a very very cheap oil pressure gauge that I mounted in a spare slot in an A pillar gauge holder anddddddd never actually got around to connecting to anything... Remember buying some earthing kit thing that had wires running all over the engine...

    Worst ways you spent your money on your car
