I check my tyres every day by simply feeling how they grip

Got my mr2 back from the body shop and what a great job he's done

Tonight I'll put the fogs, undertray, reflectors etc all back in

Took the factory stereo out and replaced it with a shiny new Pioneer DAB unit.

Also fitted a SmartTop roof control module, so now I can be a proper poseur and raise/lower the roof on the move :-)

Just checked my tyre pressures for signs of any punctures and there were none. I'm good for another two weeks.

Hope your not speaking too soon, and get a slow one while it's standing in your lovely warm garage :-)

Yeah hope not! That would really p*ss me off. I guess I shouldn't tempt fate.

Drove the Flying Fridge all over the place, again. I seem to be living it lately.

It's done 13000 miles since I bought it in February.

Oil change overdue. Tyres holding pressure. Rear brake pads shot. Little clonky round the front suspenders means a bit of work is due before the October MOT.

However it swallows a massive amount of crap on a regular basis and doesn't even flinch. Two full 1-ton bags to the tip - easy peasy (although they don't weigh a ton...)

Checked my tyre pressures but the batteries in my digital pressure gauge were dead. Luckily I had three spare CR1620 coin cell batteries left over from a 5 pack and it takes two.

Just ordered another five pack so I will have six batteries spare which should keep me going for a few years. Bought the original 5 pack on 27/11/2015.

I suppose that's one benefit in using an analog pressure gauge no batteries but I prefer the digital type as they are easier to read.

EDIT: Found my post from the 8th December 2015 when I received the original five pack...

Those first two batteries from that five pack have lasted me 1 year 8 months or 20 months if you prefer. Not bad.

Checked my tyre pressures just now and all tyres were still inflated to their exactly correct amounts so didn't need any topping up. The rule of the thumb is that as long as they are within 1-2 PSI you're ok. I try to keep them within 1 PSI however.
