    Bleeding brakes and ready for MOT in the week. Handbrake testing worked very well so well pleased with the adjustment. Jag inboards are well know for not being great but I have found getting them balanced makes all the difference. I had the cable set wrong which shows up on the test as unbalanced.

    Exactly right, if you set these things correctly they will give you a
    very reasonable handbrake.
    Also should not need to be adjusted too often providing you don't do loads
    of handbrake turns .

    Looked at it and wondered why it was up on stands when we have had wall to wall blue for the weekend.

    then changed my clutch master and slave for new items along with an upgrade to -4 hose from -3. Made the effort easier but not into daily driver easy.

    took the dash out ready for EPAS fitting.

    Yesterday: out in the car with my boy, blasting along A24 and Long Furlow after attending Frank (Bloke)s DriveIt Day event - thanks Frank.
    The most fun I have had in the car - happy as a toddler with a new toy, and both sunburnt!

    Nope! You have to take off a couple of mm from the lugs at each end. My previous Exide battery had the same issue. If my memory serve me correct, the battery length is 243mm and the tray is 238/239.

    The Jag tyres on my build wheels are cracked so badly that I'm honestly a little afraid every time I put air in them (which is every time I need to move the car, because they leak like a sieve)!

    Must replace the tyres on the trailer before they are the same way .. you know, once I take the FE out of it..
