Lintilla

Crunch time

I'm well into crunch time preparing for our rally around the Highlands and islands of Scotland, and I'm starting to get a bit stressed about the amount of stuff still to do before we leave on Friday. Lintilla is as prepared as she's going to get now, apart from going to the garage tomorrow to get her tracking checked and adjusted (I suspect it has moved somehow because the steering wheel is no longer centralised).

I changed the front brake drums last night for a different pair I had bought to put on Fenchurch, and it cured the heavy vibration I got when braking hard at over 35MPH. Unfortunately that means that when I had the bad pair skimmed last year, the engineering shop must not have centralised them accurately enough in the lathe, and I don't now have a good pair for Fenchurch (you can't buy these drums new any more, and they are rather scarce and expensive on the second hand market).

I'm going to really need a holiday after all this holiday preparation! ;)
