    Added the auto lights on (there's a module i had to add and wire in) and made a frankenstein LPG on off switch so it would face the right way for my aftermarket lpg system

    nice work, did you do a writeup anywhere?

    wish it was that cheap here - my V8's are a grand each.

    Did an oil change on the Falcon, swore at the stupidity of the designer who put the A/C compressor so close to the oil filter, got old engine oil in the eye, went inside and had a cuppa while waiting for oil to drain and to see properly again, finish oil change only to find it misfiring, such is the life of a Ford owner

    Your avatar is so appropriate, conversely I did an oil change on the Clubsport - still can't get over how easy they are to do, literally a 15 minute job. Longest part is taking the stone tray off and jacking it up.

    Nothing to see here.

    :clap:It has been a week long saga; I've been cleaning the passenger side carpet of the spillage of the four coffees of my workmates. 3 coffees were milk-based. We all know the stink. Starting with CT18, water, Autoglym shampoo, water, dry, Autoglym shampoo, water, citrus spray, glen 20, Autoglym water, bicarb of soda, vacuum, dry, the smell is almost gone. Time will tell otherwise I'll start the process again. Flushed the cooling system of the VX today. What, no drainage petcock? The plastic roof of the ecohah is off and I'll continue burping it out the thermos bleed valve tomorrow. 9.9 litre capacity, crap loads of sludge come out, 3 litres of 1:1 go in aaand we're full. Not.
    The other day , I had a single row, 12 led Hard Korr system installed by the trustworthy guys at my local Autobarn.. With my ailing eyeballs, they are the difference between night and day. :boxing:
    Yesterday I dodgy brothered the air box with superglue after a UPG backfire blew a chunk off. Stuck injector cleaner in the tank and am running on petrol until the guys with the expensive diagnostic computer can check out the gas mixture settings. Yay, fast times at commodore high.
    Oh, wait, one more thing. I burnt my hand on hot radiator/sludge water. You know the pie is hot but you take a bite anyway :clap:.
