Look what came in the post today

Post by gas guzzler » Mon Sep 15, 2014 11:39 am

A thread shamelessly stolen from another forum I'm on. Basically what came in the post for your car or anything else interesting.
Here's what came for me today, door seals, windscreen seal and infill (already got a heated screen) rear seals, rocker gaskets and oil filter. Just need the time to get things done now.

Not quite today, last Thursday - Attending some of the test days for the Revival showed that my camera battery was on its last legs. Hunting on the web for a replacement secured a high-power battery grip, which arrived on Thursday, in the nick of time for the event :) After taking >1200 pictures in each day, it was still reading full, so it did what I wanted! :D
