            Got the last legally required MOT. Same advisory as last year “steering column top bearing worn”. I must get one of those collars to fix it permanently!

              Excellent! My experience is that it takes longer to remove the exhaust than to remove the diff!

                Actually yesterday, but set about washing the Stag. Hoping to get out on the road Friday, now the salt has washed away..
                Did anyone catch Johnnie Walker's sounds of the 70's on Sunday, he had a request from someone in a shed with a Stag with a poorly engine?

                    Spent the last few days upgrading the headlights using the Wards wiring. The outer light units I had(think from Tony Hart a few years ago) had fittings for pilot lights so have rigged those up for LED running lights with bulbs from Bettercarlighting. Now people can see me coming & I can see where I'm going . Yet to test on the road yet-waiting for the snow & salt to go.

                      Drove down to and then around Essex yesterday (Saturday), on a familiarisation run with my co-drivers. We’ve entered the RBRR this October. We needed to work out how three big lads would fit into a Stag for two continuous days running. Stag ran faultlessly for the 160 odd miles racked up, except with a passenger in the back the rear mud flaps catch on the ground when you pull away.

                      option 1 - progressive rear springs
                      option 2 - take the mud flaps off

                      Any advice on the progressive rear springs? I know TH and Monarch both list them, are they different or from the same source?

                        Hi Chris,

                        My Monarch ones look quite different to the TH ones that I have seen advertised..

                        I have used rubber spring assisters in the past to stop my old springs letting the rear end sag when towing a caravan.

                          The mud flaps on mine have always rubbed when pulling away and I have much stiffer rear springs than either the TH or the Monarch ones. My springs are from a late 2.5PI Estate. I also have adjustable shockers set quite stiff.

                          The flaps rub less these days though, they are a little shorter than they were and I've taught myself to use less throttle when setting off !

                            I had a great morning changing over one side of my shocks. I'm replacing my spax nitro gas to standard.
                            All of my powder coated parts are in excellent order and cleaned up lovely as did the inside of the wheel arch. Im glad I went painted now as it's so nice to clean up.
                            not touched it in two years.
                            other side tom night then hopefully not such a harsh ride.

                              All finished today, runs "sweet as a nut".

                              Luckily my exhaust is easy, had it apart a few times.

                                Took it a local 20 mile drive in the sun. Roads still wet and muddy from this mornings rain so did a good wash and wax on the drive when I got home.
                                What a lovely spring day it turned into. More please whoever organised it ...
