Oxley’s Shaw

I went to the TV4x4 event at Oxley’s Shaw today. Had a great time, got rather muddy and got stuck twice.

Not challenging but quite fun log bridge
Initially I had struggled to get out of these ruts, then suddenly when the camera was on I just did it with ease.
Bit of carnage to the wing..

Dash and Fire Extinguisher

I think two thousand words would be overkill in this instance.

Dash covered

‘Realtree’ (Chieseium knock off) camo effect vinyl wrap.

They don’t match up, but I don’t mind that much.

Repaired chipped phone screen

The break before. A proper hole that was irritating to run my finger over.
Used Rainx’s windscreen chip repair kit. Curing in the sun..
Pealing off the curing strips
The resulting mess
Scraping off the excess resin
The result, now it needs to be polished somehow I think. Much better than it was for sure. The result is a smooth almost so smooth that I can no longer feel the damage. The crack is still visible but much reduced.

Busting a padlock

I had snapped this padlock onto the rear loop for no reason. I do not have a key for it, so it was a pointless item. Today was the end of it. No good reason, just a little wanton destruction.

I have done the front axle also, but didn’t get any pictures of that.

New Alternator

I have been suspecting that my alternator was on it’s way out for some time now. I’ve been seeing the charge light coming on a lot, my lovely wife got me a new alternator for Christmas. I also changed the oil while I was there.

Old alternator
New and Old, pretty similar
Not entirely identical, but it’ll work.

New years eve

Lighting up the garden with the chiminea
Ripping away

We spent the final half an hour or so of 2019 in the garden drinking and watching the chiminea burn. Happy new year!

Silver Birch logs

I requested that the tree surgeons leave the decent sized logs for a fella who lives near by as he has a wood burner. So today we moved them to his place in the land rover, it was a good excuse for me to drive on the foot paths.

The pile of logs last night
The second load.. The dash is still as it was in the post about the wipers..

I got to drive down some footpaths:

My Note8 phone is ace for this kinda silliness… gif’s and all that is.

Silver birch gone

A tree that was over the back of the fence got condemned on Monday and today they came and cut it down.. That was my favourite of the three trees, first the middle one fell over and now this one is gone.
