I got a fresh MOT and tax disc for the Primeval.

I pumped up the tyres on the E30.

I wire-brushed and spray-painted some more front suspension oddments for the Standard.

Did the upper wishbone for the Standard. Also fitted the now-complete wishbones, upright and spring for that side to the subframe, using tactically-applied bodymass in lieu of spring compressors.

In theory, I've fixed the fuel tank leak on my housemate's Toyota. We shall see.

Did a bit of bodywork on the Micra. And yes, the Toyota appears to now be leak-free.

Looked at the coolant in my brother's car and thought "That's kinda oily and resembles chocolate milkshake"

What's the relation between that and my P11 Primera?

I put Mobil 1 0W40 in the Panda, as while the spec calls for 10W40, I'm really not that worried about it in a modern engine.

When Ford were specifying 5W30 in wheezy old Valencias, yeah, I ignored them and put at least a 40 weight in.

If the EPA matters in the examples I'm citing, that's some serious strategic overreach.

I think the real question is what you're going to listen to on the finished setup.

Three Little Birdies Down Beats would be my choice.
