i meant to ask pedders how far My tape measure alignment was out(or not?) forgot all about it, meh. should be good, only thing adjustable really is toe anyway

well when i fitted the sway bar a few months back. I asked for the guy doing the alignment to go to +3mm caster. I got it +3mm on one side, and +3.5mm on the other side, using a tape measure haha. 

this time, nowhere near correct. its that out, that driving back and forth in the driveway, is leaving faint tyre marks lol

haha yeah its just the toe now. 

because in my case, adjusting the caster using the sway bar, also screws with toe angle. its hard to explain, you'd have to see it in person to see how. 

aligner is about 1km from my place.

A V8 will solve the issue of the strut tops not fitting properly LOL :D (sarcasm)

If it was me i'll be shortening that negitive battery lead a little (so it doesnt rub on the rad support and or bonnet) and turning the terminal around abit ;)

When i last drove my XD (this winter just gone) it was running abit too cold for my liking (like 140F - 150F) So i tapped up half the grill with a piece of cardboard and 2 inch electrical tape. Looked stupid but it worked and got the temp up to 170F-180F :)  (didnt get any pics)

Hehe i think ive sorted the temp thing. But i dont want to open that topic again. 

I think the neg post should be ok for now. I might end up fitting a larger battery to help with starting. However since tuning the carby, i havent had to jump start it once 👌❤️
