Hi all,

Just about ready for tomorrow now!!!

Had a nightmare of a day...

woke up to find that both the o/s tyres were flat!!! Now have one repaired and one with the spare on for now....So i hope i dont get a puncture as i have no spare!!! Kwik Fit were anything but!! It took 2 hours to change two tyres!!!

went to change the plugs and found that the ones in there were so knackered that there were no electrodes left!!!

Dropped my only socket adapter into the sump guard and now cant find it!!!

Hope tomorrow is a more enjoyable and successful day!!!
:D :shock:

Here is the first video from today!!!

Very fun day,

Learnt a lot about the fronty B, ie it needs a lift before tyres as it grounds on everything!!! The G.Y. Wrangler HP's didn't let me down V Impressed for a road biased tyre!!

Managed to replace the spare I lost yesterday with a part worn GY Wrang HP from si's mechanic, so all in all a great day!!

The Ford said 2ft but think more like 1.5 - 1.75ft, bearing in mind both frontys are petrol and Si's is lifted 2" and mine is stupidly low??!! They both did really well!!!

Yes they are!

And they moved the petrol tank to under the passenger seat but for some unknown reason it is the lowest point on the frontera!!!!

Spent a large amount of time grounding the frontera yesterday so it will be suspension lift before tyres I think!!!

Now just got to trawl through the threads to find the part no's for the bits!!!!

awwww, nice piccies :D :lol:


Twas a nice day actually.. last day of 4 wheeling and fording with the 2.0 petrol engine... ;) next time with the 2.8.


Was the "dalek" voice conversion on the video an added bonus of the video cam? heheh, nice little bit of vid.
Wonder how mine looks, got to work out how to get it off the camera and on to the computer next, much easier on an SD card, hehe...
