Hows the ribs healing, all mended & back riding? Pud

Thanks mate, they are healed as good as they will get, still hurt in the morning and when stretching up really high, been trying to strengthen them a bit so see how that goes!
It will all be ok in the end.. if is not ok its not the end!

Hard to get pics when I am always by myself! :cry:
It is going really well, haven't had to touch a thing on it, I need to make the shift arrangement a bit nicer though. The 5th gear gate on the subarugears box is fairly heavy and makes selecting 5th a bit harder than it needs to be. It really needs a coupling that has a nice straight connection rather than one that is slung under neath. I still have to align the steering wheel as wheel but I really couldn't be assed! :lol:
And I have to make a travel limiter on the vw clutch pedal as it has too much travel and pushed the pressure plate into the clutch if it is pressed down too far.
It will all be ok in the end.. if is not ok its not the end!

Bought a roof tray for the buggy relocated the LED bar to the front bar, bought a new one for the roof and threw in some LED headlight inserts which are bloody amazing. I am no longer scared of the dark! :D
Oh and cut a couple of vents into the bonnet so the top 1/3 of the radiator is vented a little better. I ended up painting the headlight shells black too as the chrome was absolutely rubbish and I won’t get blinded by the reflection off the light bar.
