Being tall ain’t always that easy!

Especially not when it comes to buying clothes. Jeans in particularly… I have a 32″  waist (and aim to keep it that way for the while). I also have 36″ inside leg measurements for any trousers.

Trying to find a pair of jeans that aren’t a million miles wide is quite a nightmare, luckily it would seem that the 34″ (inside leg) skinny fit jeans I bought from Asos for £25 are long enough…only downside is that the front pockets are pathetic.

Slim fit I’m not so sure about but it’s probably worth a try. Next stop TopMan (who used to sell 36″ inside leg) jeans but now don’t appear to (sad face)

Share my pain!

MG TF Update 10 – New disks and pads all round

So, this came as an advisory on the service. Things needed replacing so I decided to do the full lot and be done with it.

I bought Pagid (OEM to Merc etc) pads and disks from Euro Car Parts for around £172. I was also going to give it a go at fitting myself.

I followed a very handy tutorial written by CJJ off the MG Rover .org Forums.

Tutorial for changing rear Disks and Pads –

With a little help from my Dad, I managed to do the work in a weeekend (front one day, back the next)… luckily the weather held off.

I saved myself money on getting them fitted, and by doing so, learnt a little more about car mechanics. The back set I more or less did myself 🙂

Result – a better braking experience and no more unhealthy sounding noises making for a better ride all in all.
