Changed the cam follower today, really easy to do, followed a guide on this forum.

The old was one was in really good nick,  must've been changed recently prior to my ownership.

Pic of the old one.

Got new Brembo discs & Ferodo DS2500 pads I'll be fitting in the next couple of days. Decided to try this combo 1st rather than going for the big brake route as I only have a sprited drive every now & again.

Fitted the new discs & pads today. Fairly easy, obviously haven't been done for a while some bolts were quite stiff.

Definitely needed doing, old discs are well truly knackered.

Don't often get the time but just went out for a blast today, weather / roads were spot on.

Well not going to be driving my car for awhile.

Just over a week ago I slipped over crossing the road in the rain smashing my knee cap into three pieces.

Bloody nightmare is an understatement.

Just hired my new whip....
