I swear this car is just put on the earth to test me.

I may or may not have said this before, but since I got the car, I have been experiencing a quite harsh, at times, wobble on the steering. I put this down to having a worn ball joint and the RHD caliper sticking, which is a common problem apparently.

Now, I thought I fixed the caliper when I replaced the discs and pads, but tonight the steering wobble came back again, pretty violently. I stopped at a roundabout with smoke pouring out the front wheel. With the wheel too hot to touch. So I'm ordering a new caliper tonight which will hopefully cure it.

But here's some pics. Everyone loves pics.

Well my Dad, every so great that he is, swapped the caliper today for a shiny new one whilst I was at college :alright

Haven't driven it yet, but the peddle feels great.





I only bloody cleaned them on Saturday!

This road leads to my grandmothers old house. I used to walk down it when I was a kid and always thought that it would come in use for something and this evening it did. I hurried my way there because the light fades super quick now, I only got about 5 minutes of really golden light.

I have film shots to follow :cool
