Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Yes, discs pads and shoes. So it ought to be straightforward. I always clean the pad carriers which adds a few minutes, but otherwise nothing out of the ordinary.

I didnt change the handbrake shoes but found that getting the second pad in the caliper at the rear was not straightforward as not enough room , be interested in exchanging notes when you have done yours

I'm very sorry that I won't be there. I will try and send you some weather from Spain, it was 29C when I got into the car this morning to go shopping. Shopping for beer and gin mostly it must be said. Too hot to eat much.
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

We will be thinking of you Bernard whilst we swig our real ale huddled around the camp fire under our umbrella... :lol:

:cheers:

Well so much for plans A and B.

Brakes done, though not test driven. I got VERY wet. Handbrake shoes are the pig, had no real problem with the pads, other than being careless taking out the wear sensor and breaking it. Luckily I had a spare.

So, just thinking I'll stop now and test drive it in the morning before loading up. Lock the car and notice the left rear indicator isn't working. Spare bulb in, and still dead. Bottom. So maybe my spare is a duff, but I do need to fix it before I can come tomorrow. I was too cold wet tired and hungry to carry on so I'll do it first thing tomorrow and confirm when I have. It may mean a slightly later arrival, but I do need to get my car working.

Looking forward to catching up, one way or another!

Well at least the indicator problem was an easy one. Broken contact in the bulb holder. Temporary repair in place so I just need to check the brakes and load up.

Dave, yes something like that!
