Little update

Lamp building on hold at the mo’ not so sure the fumes are that good for me ;-)


On another Note car related, I took the decission to take my Roady in for a rebuild last weekend as it has done 122,000 odd miles and starting more oil than I would like, so I bit the bullet rather than have it preying on my mind on my Nordic trip this summer.

After a small delay,  the work has started, the block is being rebored and oversized pistons being fitted the head has suffered no catostrophic damage so I just need  a rebuild instead of a new engine, my wallet says phew :-)

Re my cars Brake lamp remanf’

Moved away from Veroboard as LEDs to cramped, have knocked up PCB strips, etched my first ten this morning, drilling and cutting to size to follow, pictures will be uploaded when I can get around to it.


On reflection that’s alot of tiny holes to drill!!

Looking Forward.

I was settled to have a reasonabley travel free year, then temptation got the better of my irrationality…………….

Looks like I’ll be spending the Blockedl end of summer in Norway.

Now will the car get us there and back again!

Last years sojourn in Italy ended up costing more than we thought with the failure of the turbo on the Roady, that’s all in the past throw caution to the wind Northwards………………….
