well, the good news is i am back amongst the employed masses from next monday
the bad news is i haven't exactly been using my time to good effect on the sud, too much fretting and going around all my contacts, sending CV's out etc.
so after sorting out the paperwork on my new job this morning i thought i'd better at least do something with the next few days.............
put another layer of stoneguard under the wings of the sud whilst it's still on the rollover thingy, then the neighbour came round to moan about the smells
thought twice then about spraying in the under-bonnet area then, don't want a call to the authorities
so decided it was about time to take it off the spit and back onto axle stands so i can get on with something else.
so then dug the cage out from the other sud (storage unit
) and trial fitted it. was a bit tighter than it really needs to be due to my leaving the black roof lining in, the one with the cardboard type backing.
i know i should take all un-neccesary weight out but i do quite like the idea of leaving it in, will save having an ugly roof skin on show that will most likely have rust scabs and old glue all over it. and it doesn't exactly weigh much.....might take it out though...haven't decided for sure, but it does actually still just
allow the cage to go in and will save it sounding like a van in there
also will have to decide on if i'm using a sud dash or not as i won't be able to fit one in after the cage is installed as the cage legs run down in front of the air vents so will be no room to squeeze the dash in
will make up the reinforcing plates tomorrow and weld them all in
typical of my jumbled state of mind lately, i've only just thought about getting new suspension bushes
so they are on order from alfa-service which kind of puts paid to my plan of getting the cage & suspension back on by sunday
