Beryl Beemer's birthday today, party??
Hi Guys, and gals,
Beryl Beemer's birthday today, 2nd Sept 2014, woohoooo.
Having emigrated from the fatherland on the 2nd boat, she has settled in for the last 15 years at Denistone West.
Had the usual pink slip (road worthiness) at $22.50, Compulsory Third Party (CTP) at $674.52, Road registration at $120, and comprehensive insurance (agreed value $14,500) at $464.00.
Have a couple of replacement front discs (after market) and EBC pads to install when I find somewhere that sells the med strength 143 thread locker goop. Didn't realise how hard it is to find this gunk.... my OEM front discs are 1/2 the thickness they are supposed to be, so a birthday pressy for the old girl.
Gave her a bubble bath on the weekend but looking outside here at work this afternoon it looks like some storms are out there .... just waiting for us.
And so another year is clocked of reliable trouble free motoring on the old girl. gave her a new filter and oil transfusion a couple of weekends ago...she is still spinning over really sweet and smooth on her days.. Methinks she will need new/refurbished suspension units as the Wilbers and modified rear OEM unit are beyond their usefull working life without some TLC.. such is life....
