Life Is Just A Bowl Of F***ing Cherrys

Sorry to anyone reading this at work, but it is pretty sh1t at the moment.

To be fair the job's going quite well, the fact that Stressmen have an innate resistance to making a decision & sticking to it means I have been gainfully employed working up TWO schemes at work. On the downside, Brexit means the bottom has dropped out of the marked for houses like mine JUST when my soon-to-be-ex-wife wants to sell the house, meaning there won't be enough cash for us to get a place each. She seems to think we have to follow the estate agent's advice & lower the price to whatever he says, I think we need to just wait it out, Brexit WILL pass. But she is VERY insistent that I move out.

On a lighter note, I got under the back of the Fury this evening. When I moved the exhausts from pointing down to pointing back, I didn't anticipate the waft of exhaust I would get while driving. This evening's job was to make up a diffuser (sort of) to increase the speed of the airflow under the car, thus decreasing it's pressure & hopefully holding the exhaust down away from me. Some time ago I had a sheet under the diff, but not since the Riv-nuts spun & I tore the sheet off in a fit of pique.

I have designed a proper "thing" to take it's place, but I need a large sheet of aluminium to make it, so this evening's efforts are a temporary fix to see if my theory works.

It's just about invisible from behind - which is a good thing.

The picnic basket also stops fumes coming forward (ahem).

Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside

There was a bit of an SKCC jaunt to Bexhill last Sunday, we started at Newlands Corner & wended our way to the excellent Sovereign Light Café, where we met a host of eastern SKCC folk already tucking in.

While we were there a couple of passers by asked if we were the car show, one amongst us knew of the real event & directed them So after breakfast I headed to the other side of town to see what was going on. Not a great deal was the answer, there were the usual massed ranks of MGBs, with a handful of interesting cars interspersed.

I took some photos:-
