Had a great day yesterday. I took part in a fund-raising run for our local hospice. It was called the 'Santa Dash' and we all ran wearing full Santa outfits... Take it from me it's hard to run in a Santa outfit
I ran to the venue and back again as I knew parking would be difficult. In running there and back dressed as a Santa gave a lot of people a lot of smiles! Best was as I ran over an M1 over-bridge I waved to the traffic and got many hoots back, especially from the lorry drivers
Here is a selection of Santas at the race finish
The race has so far raised £7,000 and they're still counting the money!
Today I have serviced Robyn's C1... It took all of an hour and that included a very thorough check of everything... All is very good
Yesterday I repaired a high-quality battery charger I've had for years stashed away in the attic... It's designed to float-charge lead acid batteries continuously... It'll also boost charge and/or supply the load up to 20A..
Here it is on test floating the Pug 207 battery and powering a Xantia headlamp as a test load... That lot is drawing a good 6 Amps from the charger whilst it continues to float the battery...
The project for Christmas is going to be the Pug 207. I'm going to have her BSI, fusebox and any other electrical suspects out and give them a good old check-over...
I'm determined to sort that car out... It's now taunting me saying 'Come on big boy, you know you want to...'
And I do
And I will
