Hopefully get back in the mini soon, lean-to/pergola is almost finished so that means I can get the patio furniture out of the shed and get some working space back!

Main roof...total size 7.5M X 4.2m

Side covering....total size 1.8M X 10M..

Finally back on it, got the exhaust all fitted and tightened up. Couldn't get the longer brass manifold nuts tightened on the inner studs with the alloy inlet, so had to cut one in half to make 2 normal size ones, thankfully there only brass...

Then made a start on fitting the new water pump... forgotten how much has to be removed to change it...

Plenty of gusty winds to test the lean-to... thankfully it all looks good.

Another step closer, got oil drained and front of engine cleaned off, new gasket on heater tap, new silicone rocker cover gasket, new oil filter filled and on, not too many things to do before I can get it out of the shed...

Just letting the remainder of the oil drip out overnight, then get sump plug back on and oil filled....
