    Replaced the little plastic clip that holds the bonnet stay in place, after the clip fell out over bad corrugations and the stay rattled around and scratched the top of the mudguard.
    Replacement cost $20 including postage and I siliconed it in place, but I don't trust it, so in future I'm going to cable-tie tie the stay in place when heading for corrugations.

    Still trying to solve Squeaky Rear Brakes.....

    Purchased some NEW Brembo Rear Brake Pads, hoping that this solve my squeaky rear brakes. The difference between the old RDA and the Brembo is that the Brembo don't have a slot across the middle....

    Anyways, new pads in and....... that flamin squeak is still there, if not worse, so I'm now thinking can glazed Discs be causing my brakes to squeak.....

    Will try sanding the Discs then to roughen them up a bit and see what comes of that then.....
    Cheers.....

    I think we are all too busy constantly working on them and have no time to post on here what we have done.
    Nothing this week as gardening, house duties.
    Next break hopefully front ATB in and new tie rods.

    I agree, I think you are meant to break it into two pieces then through the collar and push together.

    Washed it a couple of days ago. Took the big trailer into town to pick up a load of furniture - my sister has had to move from a retirement village into a nursing home, and the family is clearing out her unit. Got a call last night to go in again on Sunday to get the rest. The first load included a sofabed, dressing table, table, sideboard, chairs, double mattress. Couldn't take the bed as we didn't have a set of Allen keys to take it apart. I imagine the next load will include fridge, freezer, bed, can't remember what else was left.

    A niece of mine had a dual cab ute and a tandem trailer with a stock crate, but took mostly pot plants.

    Use a wingnut and glue a magnet to it that way the stay is held by the magnet and cant jump out. The plastic things are always broken off by mechanics in my experience.

    Took out the clutch pedal housing to replace leaking master cylinder.

    Ended up stripping it, bit of lube, fresh lick of paint. New TRW master.c

    Then found a low km puma salvaged pedal housing with the over center spring assist. So I will be putting that straight in with its genuine master.c which looks to be in good shape.

    I have driven the newer pedal set up a few times and found it to be a little jumpy, with less control over clutch slip. A lighter pedal would be nice, so I probably wont miss the old set up, but keeping it on the shelf just in case!
