Dark Dark nights

The first week of January is supposed to be the most depressing time if year. Christmas and new year are gone, the weather is cold and the days are still short and nights long. So in order to combat this, I've been getting up early - getting to work early, leaving at a reasonable hour, spending time with the kids and getting a few hours in the garage once they were in bed. All this has made me happy, but left me tired. Another thing that makes me happy is getting stuff for the cars (girls - think retail therapy). Molly has a new fittings and fixtures and an flasher relay, and Jessica has a big box of stuff for the gearbox rebuild/ overdrive fitting.

I haven't got round to fitting any of it yet, but it should keep me busy for a few weeks, by which time the weather may have improved (yeah right) and the days will be a little longer.

I've also found an engineering company willing to shorten the propshaft for the overdrive conversion, and I think I'm going to get them to take a look at the gearbox mainshaft too and see if they can unfatten the end where it apears to have been hit with a hammer?!

Did you mange to get a local firm to shorten it or are you using one of the shops I reccomended??
