How's the summer treating you all and how did probe fest go ;)

Post by Probe95 » Mon Jun 11, 2018 9:31 pm

Hiya all how's everybody doing enjoying the rays and sunshine, perfect time too Really get stuck on the spanners. :D

Anyone working on there cars or starting on a new projects?
Just finished my pre MOT checks and siting down now having a nice a beer too chill out and relax. :D

Its been busy with work wise running a bar and doing any tasks at the park for that matter, I'm a mercenary what ever the job is if it brings the cash I'll do it.

How did Probefest go looking at the photos looked like hell of a laugh I've got to go next year and I'll even bring some ammo plenty of booze and a mini bar. :mrgreen:

here's the check list.

All lights and indicators all bulbs replaced.
screen wash checked all is well.

power steering checked.
Coolant checked.
Oil checked.
instrument lights checked.
Bottom arms and bushes checked.
checked for play in track rod end and ball joints all is good.
Brake discs and pads plenty of meat left.
Chassis checked that things bomb proof.
Exhaust hinges and flexi all is good.
Drop links seen better days but still no knocking which is great.
Cross member and sub frames all is good should be there powder coated. ;)
Brake pipes all is good. :D
Brake fluid is good.
Brake pedal its good but not perfect so see how does on the brake test.
Hand brake adjusted now holds on 3 clicks rather then 7. :eek:
Seat belts nice and easy all no problems.
Switches and buttons all work.
Wipers work.
screen wash topped up.
screen wash jets readjusted now sprays nicely on screen.
Pop up head lights fixed now work better then they ever have.
Headlight aim MOT will sort that out as I don't have the equipment too do it too get it bang on.


On these things it pass without any trouble how ever there's three things that it will FAIL if I was too take it right now.

Horn button doesn't work anymore will investigate.
Front bumper jagged edge could be bad for the public if they were too meet it head on.
One tyre needs changing just on the 1.6m marker.

That's its so far as the saying goes fail too prep prepare too fail. :D

BEFORE you take it in , MAKE sure those headlight adjusting screws are not corroded solid. The 'nut' is nylon but the 'bolt' is steel and it won't
adjust if it is bad .

Unfortunately , I was late arriving , 4pm . I had asked the garage man to help me change the thermostat on the Probe first thing Sat. morning.
He forgot , so only turned up at midday which blew the morning away.
I did say " Hello " to everyone on site but I was told you were on your way home.
I heard you made an impression !!!!!! speeding. Everything happens slowly round here.

A Belgian joke against the people of the Dinant region (very slow) , adapt to Trentfield if you like.
Man is talking to his friend , suddenly turns round and steps on a snail.
Friend says, "What did you do that for ? "
Man says, " Hein, he keeps following me wherever I go."
