Good tip!

And if possible spray in the morning when the dust and insects are rising not in the evening when it all comes down again.

After getting the BX fairly clean today, thought it was time to apply the club sticker and get the camera out.

Jobs for day off on Monday - oil/fuel/air filters (hope for not getting spooked by cats while draining oil this time, resulting in
lots of oil on the floor).

So Tim kindly hooked me up with a new bit of tube for my wiper.

"New"? What does that mean? :D

Very true, if I haven't got some black Hammerite knocking about I'll probably do just that.

My degree show is on Friday of this week, so after that all hands on deck to get the car sorted out. We seem to have organised another Europe trip in August - France and Belgium definitely, maybe other places.

Definitely need to get the knocks from the front investigated, whatever is up with the nearside rear wheel bearing, and the water loss issue. Garage for some of those things I reckon. Other than that, can't wait to get driving on some French back roads again, and attempt to make my brother (who is coming on the trip) stop being vegan by waving fresh croissants at him.

your spray bar is on the wrong side of the wiper arm!
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Is it? Ha ha, I just replicated the position from the one that was on there when I got it.

So the pipe should be on the underside of the arm? Cheers. :D

I thought Martin had done that on purpose to give a bigger spray pattern being further back from the screen lol

Yeah yeah, it's all intentional, I actually got the protractor out and measured various angles and trajectories and found
this set up vastly superior. :D
