I love my ELIT and treasure it!

I was a great discovery I must admit and I was so pleased to have sorted Alasdair's as a result...

It'll be interesting to see if it works on other cases of red and green on simultaneously on other engines besides the V6...

Great.....the ones I have opened are wonderfull, glad they are as well.

We forget what good simple foods taste like sometimes....and how simple it is to do.....even for me.

Did I get rid of the taste of LHM, I bled the brakes in that jar :)

That might be the secret behind their lovely taste :)

Very happy with my C1 insurance renewal today. £156 with LV...

Now I need to find a good classic policy for the Activa... LV do classic policies but the car must be 20 or more years old. My Activa is 19 :(

That's good to know Alasdair... I'm at the NEC Classic Car Show on Sunday with Team WFA so will be taking an interest in the insurers there.. With Flux at the moment but want to see how the others compare before speaking to them again this year...

Good thinking Chris...

No harm in getting a few quotes as a potential barter tool though...

Purple belt now achieved :-D

With that now done (although training now starts for my 4th Kyu grading in March) I can now concentrate a bit on my Activa V6 project...

Speaking of which, I took the Activa out for a long run last evening to attend a wedding reception. The drive, although dark and wet, was sublime...

I love that car :-D

Off to the NEC Classic Car Show today. Looking forward to that...

Great day at the NEC Classic Car Show today wit Team WFA..

Got a few good tools including a little torque wrench for my bike... One that covers sod all to about 20 Nm and is essential for any work on a carbon fibre bike...

Over-tighten something and you can easily split the frame...

Last evening I took the Activa out for a long run to a family wedding reception. The night was cold and wet but the drive was sublime and has given me added impetus to get really stuck into the V6 conversion now...

I really do love my Activa :-D

Hopefully, a really busy time is now more or less over and I can concentrate a little on the V6 project... The only thing that will be taking equal billing is training for my next karate belt.. they are getting exponentially harder from now on...

Finally, I love (decaff) coffee and this particular coffee machine really appealed 8-)

It was Mark :D

The Activa insurance is now renewed for another year with Adrian Flux... I've stayed with them on the advice of one who knows who reports they are very happy to insure a converted V6 Activa... Not all companies are in his experience...
