Fuck christmas, and fuck the cause of christmas.

This kind of thing needs to be stamped out at a grass roots level.

I like Xmas.

It's a time when both my sons are off work and the youngest spends some time at home rather than away.

It is also the busiest time at work. I work a four-on, two off system. Guess which days (and no others) fall on my natural 2 days off? Yep, I get to work full day 24th, off 25th and 26th, then back in 27/28/29/30th. My two days "off" are taken up with fucking bullshit and then when my mates go pissing it up over the weekend I am back in work again. Everybody wonders why I am a miserable cunt at Christmas.....

My birthday is on Christmas day ..
I did do some tinkering on the smoll Maserati today . Fitted a steering lock casting to the column, fitted a s/h ignition barrel . made up 2 keys , one with a transponder . but the fucker wouldn't start .. Then i saw the transponder ring hanging under the dash.. I forgot to fit it in the cowling . That refitted , it fired up instantly ! Apart from the nearside sill being stove in , it ain't a bad little van . Accent on little, I suppose you could put a shoebox size parcel in the back !

The oil light was flashing . Reading up on fiat forum , and looking at youtube last night , i tried the " floor the gas pedal and press the brake pedal 7 times "trick .. No it didn't stop the flashing , but it did put out the engine light !! By doing it all over again , fixed the oil light too ! Next to fix is the "door open " light .. chaffed wire??



The amber triangle is a blown side light bulb , that'll be easy ..
