Thats a nice colour

Yeh its nice :) has a few scratches so will get it sorted when money allows. Its now getting there mechanically, its starting first time now, still get a puff of white smoke but its just that, a puff, nothing prolonged or anything just a single white cloud. Do the 3rd gear tables/charts mean anything in relation to turbo health?

had a look online using part number from ebay and cant find which models it fits, some ebay sellers include the 150 in their list others dont, is annoying

With the garage not working today I thought I would take a look for myself, removed the black metal cover and noticed the arrow on the fuel pump wasnt lined up with the screw hole, so, loosened it and twisted it to line up, tightened it up and turned on ignition and now the gauge is working. Think I will either do jobs myself or take it somewhere else as although its free getting it done at work, they dont seem to be giving it the attention they should and missing simple things.
But all good now and with no cost, so I'm happy :)

Strange. Wouldnt think that would affect the sender but good job non the less
