Still got to spray the other side of the tailgate as I had limited space to paint and the wheel arches too, trouble with Raptor is a full week for the paint to properly cure. New front brakes, a new fuel sender unit, new fuel lines, paint the chassis rails, relocate the breather pipes for both diffs, flush and refill both diffs and transfer case, rebuild front hubs, soundproof the cab, new glow plugs and then she'll probably be back on the road.

That should only take you a couple of hours :lol:

If your after a decent under body / cavity wax look at bilt Hambers offerings

Ha! Plus reassembly of everything else! Besides, I'm not a mechanic by trade :o just happen to know a thing or two!

Thanks for the recommendation, I'll be doing underseal hopefully early December subject to finishing everything else. It'll never be finished, light bars etc will be coming later on but roadworthy is the first stop.

A load of cubed lamb in the reduced aisle facilitated making a batch of stew for the freezer.

I had a little Lidl little lithium jump starter box great as a power bank but it's ment to be able to jump a 1.6 petrol car the wife's is a tiny 1.0l and the stepson helped empty the shopping on Saturday afternoon left the boot open a bit so the boot light drained the battery (dead over night ) it's a tiny battery on it (35ah) and no way would it turn it over just a puff of smoke from the magic jump starting attachment... On Sunday morning :evil:

So I cursed and swore as I pulled my car round to jump it from mine ..

We have this jump start pack at work

https://www.sipuk.co.uk/sip-03936-rescue-pac-1600.html

the boss paid top money for it it will start the big numb industrial 6ish litre turbo diesel lumps on the BIG forklift must get about 15-20 starts before bit needs charging and on a cold winters morning it's a daily occurrence .


It was on offer at a few pence under £105 on flea bay not cheap but I've seen it / used it, it's not got a compressor / work lamp / funky never to be used gadgetry.

It starts vehicles which will not start .

I've used it on most diesel forklifts at work upto 12 tonne lifts,. a hired Dump truck last winterv and a fair few cars. .. (even next doors staff gravitate towards the fitters shop with the "my car wont start " sob story ...

I want nothing more nothing less I want a jump pack to start a vehicle and that's what it does

I'm making new masks this weekend. I haven't had my sewing machine out, as work is closed, since the last lockdown. Hoping my enthusiasm builds some by then.
