    Changed both CV joints today. Both lower swing arm ball joint nuts were a B@*%&^d to undo, but managed it. Got dark a bit quick, so will test drive tomorrow. £23 for both joints complete with boots & reluctor rings from www.jandrcvjoints.co.uk inc p&p. Thanks to Mr Fast for pointing me in their direction. Clean up & wash & polish (again) tomorrow provided thumbs don't ache too much (arthritis before anybody asks).

    I've used J&R a couple of times now for the outer CV joints. Can't complain for the price and they seem decent quality :)

    Oh I just remembered what I did with my BRM. Used it as a shelf to rest my sponge on while cleaning the ZR. First time I've ever washed it (not my car :p)

    Bob has a flat battery which is now charged! Bonnie went to a fireworks party and parked or got stuck in a field, which involved lots of handbrake turns, sliding and general messing about in the mud!!! Tomorrow I will wash her off but will post a pic first!

    Changed both temperature sensors and the multi-relay box courtesy of Gazza. Ongoing saga of both cooling and aircon fans which either run all of the time, some of the time, or not at all! Now the aircon fan runs when it's needed - and the engine fan runs all the time - but I mean ALL the time, even with the engine switched off! Looks like I need to try my spare ECU to see if that solves the problem. I have ECU, black box and keys but, errrr, what do I do now???

    I haven't a clue. But I'm sure Gazza can fix it for you! :construction:

    Dr Doom strikes again.... Come and work with me for a week, let's make some positives out of the negatives.....my glass is half full!! Both my BRMs need work and rust is coming through but I love driving them, I do the jobs as and when needed!!

    Do you need me to post some positive sayings??

    Or Mrs Fun suggests some vitamin tablets to help pick you up :laugh:
