Oil and filter change time, so Monday drained oil and replaced filter and while there was no oil in sump, removed the sump and replaced oil pick up pipe. Good opportunity remove any bits lying in the bottom of the sump and give it a bit of a clean.
Put it all back together again on Wednesday.

I had a few days off recently so while enjoying the good weather decided to do some of the jobs that I’d been gathering parts for.
First up was to remove the front track control arms and get the local garage to fit the Cookbots, it didn’t take long to realise that the tools I have were sadly lacking and not up to the task plus I also needed an offset 18mm ring spanner to get onto the nut for the aft attachment. In addition to this the headlight levelling system which attaches to the left hand side track control arm was so badly corroded that the attaching bolts just sheared when any force was applied to undo the various nuts etc.
So a call to TPS was required to order up the broken bits and a rethink of what I hoped to achieve over the next few days.
Decided to put off removing the track control arms until more suitable tools were purchased and instead reinstalled the new parts for the headlight levelling system and replaced the broken side panel on the left hand side that I had picked up over a year ago.

Also took out the lower 3 grills from the bumper cover and gave them a coating of Plastikote Primer and then Plastikote Matt Black paint.
Unfortunately because I’d fitted a FMIC I couldn’t get my hand/arm up to release the front grill so will do this at a later date.
