went in had a strong cup of tea and a chocky biscuit or three.
so i will have to replace my power steering pipes thats ok i have the ones off my old truck .i looked in the shed nothing, i looked in the back of my new truck nothing,ok i must of put them in were i put the thingys, {all the bits you keep because you no some day you will find a use for them and never do} cyclops
i have not taken them off my old one and i thought i did affraid
i spent 1hr looking all over the place and now i feel like a right NUMPTY Twisted Evil

got new pipes from a guy on fog i will fit them as soon as they arrive.
i got the front end put on today front bumper and under tray all with stainless steel bolts nuts and washers,just in case i have to remove them at some time i used 16mm all stainless for strength as my front recovery hitch is on my bumper i will stick up a few photos soon.i will be fitting new discs and pads at the weekend then all i need is new shocks and the front will be finished but only after i re fit the intercooler and new pipes for the turbo.i have the rear suspension sitting all painted and ready for fitting.also i am going to fit new fuel lines as they look as if they will burst at any minute.got new brake piping to day so i will get them made and fitted just as soon as i have time i dont need them but i may as well do them for peace of mind flexies as well.
i love working on things i dont no why i left the garage trade o yes i do bad back and sore knees and dirty hands all the time. Laughing Laughing
