Cheers Dan.

I installed a thing:

Couldn't be bothered to buy vacuum hose so I just used some old washer hose!

Then I "tested" my new tyres with a little offroading.

Tomorrow - possible lowering. At last. I'll leave you with this from my test drive today:

Ok looks like I found at least one problem. Dissecting the fuel gauge brought me down to this layer:

The plastic at the bottom fell out when I took it apart, so I guess it disconnected itself. Gauge appears to work now but I have a full tank, only time will tell!

Also, STICKERS

I love stickers.

Impressed speedy, never noticed how much you had done. And the colour coded bumpers really improved it!
Makes me like my loon even more.
