She just had the last laugh..new plugs fired straight up all running excellent drove off drive around estate and clutch pedal went to floor again..slave and fork slippage.
I gave the guy back a £100 towards whatever it is...young tank driver in the army so its off to an army base workshop.

The way things are going Emma will end up with a new car with hand controls instead of pedals.

If thats the case, I will inherit her Audi as she bought it from new and she doesnt want to let it go.

Ive had project bikes for a while now, and I dont know when Im going to find time to do them.

Might sell on a few things rather than hoarding, which may include the Leggy, if its not getting used.

Im really liking the FB and there are certain specs that I would have liked to build into a car that wasnt an option with the Rotus being GRP.

Already put the feelers out for one that needs work for when the Rotus is finished. Dont think I would ever sell the Rotus tho.

We're kind of in the hands of the gods....

Theres no cure for Transverse Myelitis, it all boils down to mother nature taking its course and we can just cross our fingers she makes a full recovery.

She can walk without crutches now, and go up and down stairs unaided. But still has limited to no sensation from the waist down and has spasms in her legs. Some days are better than others. Some days she cant even feel shes got clothes on. She does her shoes up so tight because she cant tell if they are falling off, then when we get home they have cut into her feet but she cant tell.

But you can imagine if she drives a conventional car and has a spasm, what carnage that could mean, she doesnt want to take the risk.

Shes still pumping the steriods into her which is getting her down as shes ballooning up from that.

Got a meeting with the neurologist on 10th Oct so we have lots of Q?

You're all too aware of the frustrations associated with a medical condition. All i can do is be there to support her, but most days I just feel like a spare p***k.

Glad Ive got a decent hobby to take my mind off all the crap.

Must be awfully frustrating for her, is there a help group forum for other sufferers get some ideas on what other people relieve symptoms.
Ive done the same for ibs anismus.
Chatting to Krohns sufferer other day he quit the steriods as making him ill.
Im on and even keel atmo...just having a nightmare getting referred back to consultant who actually want to treat me.
Glad you had a good hols

She’s found a transverse myelitis group on Facebook and she’s chatting to a few people on there which puts it all into perspective but she forgets how lucky she is compared to a lot of other people with it.

What gets her down the most is not being able to do the simple things, toilet antics..... I think I need the loo... hmmm think I’ve already gone but can’t tell.....

Anyway....

Yes holiday was great, missed the shed tremendously tho, just tidying the mess.

Sunday morning rounds of visiting family and food shopping. Red hot date with the shed this afternoon making NACA ducts moulds out of wood lol

Taking on board what people said about cooling things like sump, gearbox, diff, exhaust etc when you fit a flat floor.

Lots to do.

Hows the hangover? lol

BTW........... Ive got a real handy excel spreadsheet that Ive modified slightly with some formulas that plots the perfect shape and size of NACA ducts if its of any help in the future. Happy to ping across on email .

You punch in the maximum depth (The middle dimension at the top of the screen shot, if you change the other dims it screws up) you want it to be (how deep into the body work) and it calculates the optimum width and length of the duct.

The red line is the centre line and plots dims along the length. The black curve above the red line is the shape of the duct looking from above, this black line needs to be mirrored about the red line to obtain the overall shape.

Note the dims away from the red line at each of the plots governed by the red line.

The blue line underneath shows the profile of the depth of the duct at each of the given plots along the red line.

Simple stuff really

Thats sounds ace !!

I like stuff thats different from the norm.

You can hire the Wig Wam out at a pub near me, but you can only get about 15 or so people in comfortably, dunno about a whole wedding.

Sounds like you had a great time.
