    Well I was at a loose end at work today and we were'nt too busy so I asked my boss if I could fit a pair of new handbrake cables on my car. While I was at it I took the opportunity to fit a set of hub centric wheel spacers which I brought back from California via Florida. (20mm at the rear and 14mm at the front). Also re coated my callipers with another coat of yellow while the wheels were off, would have been rude not to. The old cable "outers" we're both broken so over due for the bin.
    I took a load of pictures to cover the process so if anyone would like me too I will post them later with a run down of the job?:)
    What to do tomorrow? It doesn't look as though it will be much busier.

    Yes please Tony! If you can post it as a new thread in the Z3 technical section I'll convert it to a wiki article :)

    I'll be pleased to Gaz, you may want to give it the once over first to make sure it's ok? Not too sure how soon I will be able to do it as our daughter Abbie is due to give birth very soon and today was a bit of a sign we think.;)
    Cheers, Tony.
