Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Made another trip to the far side of town today and back without incident. This pushed us past the 50 mile mark of "real" driving, so time for another oil & filter change as we continue to flush the crud out of the engine. https://i.ibb.co/MnPbcrZ/IMG-20190524-162102.jpg Vacuum pump being used becau...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

TPA has been pretty busy today. https://i.ibb.co/qs1WVJR/IMG-20190522-170119.jpg Looks much better with the repainted wheels. Here's a better closeup in actual sunlight. https://i.ibb.co/VwbXSrs/IMG-20190522-165629.jpg That looks "right" to my eye. Had a bunch of errands to run today all over town.....

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Have spent most of the day in the garden, and it looks like that will be the case for most of this week. I did manage to sneak away for half an hour in the evening though so thought I'd attack one of the nice simple jobs on the whiteboard in the garage. At some point the wheels on TPA had been paint...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Now safely home. Glad to report the van didn't miss a beat. The relative ease with which 70mph can be obtained for overtaking on the motorway now still surprises me a bit. Did make one upgrade when I got home. The little 10" TFT TV (fitted I'm guessing around 2000-2005) was essentially useless. ...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Sunshine came out for a while today, so got a couple of snaps of our quiet little corner of nowhere. https://i.ibb.co/MD4rkJc/IMG-20190519-164321.jpg https://i.ibb.co/LC1qwkF/IMG-20190519-164348.jpg https://i.ibb.co/VYSw8rt/IMG-20190519-195627.jpg https://i.ibb.co/tcgsZCL/IMG-20190519-202426.jpg Bac...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Given we had a clear weekend we decided it was a good excuse to take the van away for the weekend.

Only an hour from home, but still nice to get away for a bit.

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

This morning I made an absolutely awful mess in the garage by attacking TP with the sander and some paint. I swear I will be finding filler dust for years...the stuff gets everywhere.  Does look like we're moving in the right direction to me. https://i.ibb.co/1RS0rZ9/IMG-20190516-153235.jpg ht...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Wound up digging around in the locker under the sofa in the van so took the opportunity to install the battery gauge which has been rattling around for months. https://i.ibb.co/C9Ty66Y/IMG-20190515-161546.jpg https://i.ibb.co/RpvQqyS/IMG-20190515-161351.jpg The reason I really wanted this in...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Had a pretty full day today so didn't have much time for cars.  One thing which I'm rather paranoid about both in the home and cars is fire. There were a couple of things around the fridge which were bothering me. Simple really in that it chucks out a LOT of heat, especially from the area right...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Thanks for that. I'd figured that out in the digging a couple of days back and currently have one on the way. It's essentially free to me, so if that sorts it out I'll look to get a decent branded one on order. Had a bit of a special day today as the owner of TWC was due to pay me a visit. His rescu...
