Fitted some new (old) boots. Moved up to 6.70's from the OE 6.40's. They give a slightly better final drive and look better imo.

Thanks, yes I love crossplys - just a shame they are soooooo expensive new now.

Can't believe I've had this old girl 26 years now!
So much has happened in that time.

I am absolutely astounded at the snow competence of this old girl. Those tracks are mine and further down the road the drifts were across the road and higher than the bumper (which on this bus is pretty high!). I guarantee only a propper 4x4 would be able to get down there. She was so sure footed, ploughed through the drifts as if they weren’t there. All this on skinney old crossplys with the tread of a tennis shoe! After putting her back in the unit my e36 got stuck within 150m (in the city).
Stock(ish) RULES!
