I bought a new O2 sensor (narrow band) spliced on the connector for the AutoMeter gauge and welded on a bung. I'll invest in the wide band eventually when I finally switch to EFI.

As I postponed our drive till next Sunday I thought I would be productive on the car today.

Drove over to Specialty where I proceeded to replace a torn shifter boot, been like that for too many years. I had two new ones in stock, one made in Mexico and one factory. It also let me check out and re-lube my steel shifter bushings which Andy made for a precision fit. No wear at all.

I have a small foam "cone" that goes around the top of the trans mission at the shifter area, keeps things a bit quieter, it was still in good shape

I then fixed a couple of small vibration/rattle issues in the engine bay, my heat shield separated from it's silicone isolator and a hose clamp was hitting my brake switch heat shield.

Andy popped a rear wheel off my car so he could measure up some brake pads for another customer who uses the same set up as mine.

It was a nice drive back to sunny Surrey where I fueled up the car with fresh 100LL, ready for next weekend.
