At long last the temperature in the garage won't give me hypothermia so was able to get a session in. Now the new radiator is plumbed in I topped up the cooling system and there is no static leak. I need to check with the engine running to see if there is a leak under pressure, so If it ever stops raining and I can get the car outside I will do that.
You might recall I initially had a drip tray under the car, but it
was trashed when I drove over it. After that I just left a towel
underneath and chucked it away every few months. Not ideal, so decided
it was time for a new tray.
It's very deep-sided, so I chopped down the leading edge so I can slide
it under the sump (Still leaving enough to prevent overflow). And
screwed a handle to the back end to make sliding it in and out much
And to make sure I don't run over it, another laminated
reminder sign is added.
