Plans for 2015!

Just a quick post about some of my plans for 2015!

Photo website upgrades and plans are afoot, so I won’t really comment about those, I’m going to launch a music based website too! There will be some downloads etc. available from there…

Petra puma will be having some work done to improve her,  she’s running really well at moment but I do need to sort out the heated front screen and a few other niggles! Then some upgrades ;)

Otherwise I also have a load of plans which I will reveal as and when the time is right!!!

2015 and Twentyfifteen

I’ve decided to change the blog theme to the latest default theme twentyfifteen.

My blog really exists so I can keep up to date with WordPress updates, so it just seemed the right thing to change. I will of course produce a child theme in due course….

 

Petra has leather seats!

Finally got a decent albeit cold day to fit the leather seats in Petra!
Because of the seatbelt pre-tensioners we had to swap them over otherwise the airbag light either stays on or flashes 4 times which isan MOT fail :(

After working out what goes where etc. we managed to get the passenger seat in first and then started on the drivers seat. We remembered to disconnect the battery to stop any mishaps with the pre-tensioners first too!

Finally after the best part of 4 hours and making it a decent job we were finished…
I’m very pleased with the seats, they seem more supportive and the interior is mych better for it ;)

Petra MOT and tax and insurance

Petra passed her MOT on Friday after a stay at Haywood Garage for some work to be done. She received a new front ball joint, new rear drums and shoes and one brake cylinder, and the big job – rear supsension bushes.

I was happy with the work – not too cheap at a tad under £500 but I’m pleased with how good she feels now it’s done and the brakes are much more progressive and if you press hard enough you stop very well. The insurance and tax have stung me though (don’t they always) but another years motoring awaits me…
