the blue dolphin - 95 GTS Toyota MR2 turbo
car goes for service -
nothing else to report. Haven't used the car in almost 2 weeks. Must give it a good thrap tomorrow night before the service on Thursday
ah - the joys of air con -
indeed while the typical scottish weather managed four seasons in one day I was happily sitting in my air conned bubble. Very nice indeed.
I also managed to leave my stereo in the dash since wednesday night and amazingly this this afternoon a full 4 days later it was still there. As was the side windows. What luck, something I have no intention of repeating. Have removed stereo now
air con -
indeed I now have functioning air con in the car. Nice to have it back. While doing a pressure check on the system the guy found a leak on the pipe going into the condensing radiator.
He had a look and it turned out the seal was dry and slightly corroding. Not having a std seal size, thanks Toyota, it was cleaned up and refitted and the pipe reattached. Pressure tested again and no more leaks, in that area at least.
Refilled the system, added the dye in and now it runs pretty good. We don't know how long it will last for but at least with the dye its gonna leave a mark where and when it does leak out.
air con re-fil time -
indeed I have decided now the better weather is coming in that I should get the air con refilled. Only taken me 8 months to get round to it. ho hum. Should be getting done on Wednesday eve.
No much been happening. I am still using the train to get to work and what a difference it makes. No more sitting in rush hour traffic at night on the way home, no more dealing with dozy fokkers pottling along the middle lane at 50mph and I get some exercise too!
Wonder why it took me over a year to decide to do that. I'm a dumpling ;-)
