      Had drivers seat belt not extend on me, 400km from home, 200km from any town.

      4 hours of the lovely beeping with a realisation of how badly I need to adjust the headlights - at park they're fine, going over 60, they project about 4-5mtrs infront.

      So many roo's avoided too.

      Stripped off the B pillar and found the 'tilt' sensor (plastic box with ball bearing) had crap in it, and was leaning - causing the plastic pin to always push up to lock. Now I have removed this (doesn't effect the hard pull lock). if anyone has issues with it locking that's not caused by the belt being tangled, I suggest looking at this...

      When the trim is off the pillar, right under the arm (where the webbing is round) is a black plastic box held on by 4 clips, pull it down, facing the rear you should see a white with blue plastic part. the white part has a clip on it to slide it out (towards rear) - or just break the ****er out if you've had to deal with it for a real long time and have lost any and all patients!

      Oh and put short positive battery pole arm on!

      Next is head light adjustments...

      Not quite "today" but nearly 3 weeks ago, I managed to kill my tranny...

      It isn't a good idea to do a "burnout" by dropping the car in D after reving it up...

      Oh man, I would not have wanted to be there when it happened. It's one of those split second stupid mistake that makes one feel awful because it can't be recovered... at least not at the moment...

      Was it worth it? Well no.

      Would I do it again? Well, again, no.

      Will I still do it? Probably

      What did I learn? Nothing much, other than MORE POWAAAAAA!

      Tranny has now been upgraded with Audi S8 parts. That has more power than my puny little engine could ever make So I'm happier... An overhaul was cheaper than a used tranny!

      Damn I admire how you do everything by the book. Castrol Edge and OEM filters. That's dedication.

      Gotta keep it up the right way, or else...$$$. The key to longevity: everything Factory OEM and no mods.

      Replaced the crap Ford lugs with these one-piece guys from Amazon. I like them!

      Waiting on my trans oil socket in the mail so hopefully I'll be able to tackle that today. And I might wash her and snap a few pictures for the IPD photo contest? 😁

      Nice. I'd like to do this at some point. My junkyard gets a pretty healthy amount of P1's.
