Gearbox Change & New Toys!

Posted 30th August 2008 at 23:42 by Simo (Simo' Says...)

Just before the French Car Show myself and DannySp8 fitted a new gearbox to my VTS , as the old box had suffered from a damaged crown wheel (again). It was a bit of a rush job to colelct a gearbox and fit it before booking the car for an MOT.

Unfortunately whilst fitting the box the clutch release bearing moved and became mis-aligned... meaning that the clutch was slipping constantly when driving - the car missed the FCS event

Anyway... in preparation for TRAX I am doing the same job(s), only this time, instead of the luxury of a ramp in a garage, I'm fdoing it...

After 2 weeks off on holiday today was my first day back into work! Boo...

I had to go in to authorise an important job to proceed. I thought I'd do a very brief blog as it involves a topic most people probably won't think about too much : - Confined Space Entry.

We've had to take a reactor offline at the plant as about 8 months ago the steam heating coil within the tank ruptured and caused lots of problems. ITs taken a long time to get money approved to replace it and for the exotic materials to be made, etc. I'm glad its getting fixed, put it that way! ...

Childcare Vouchers...

Posted 29th August 2008 at 17:11 by Luke

This month I decided to join the childcare voucher scheme at work.

Itís ran by a company called Sodexho who the nursery we take Ruby to, accept these vouchers. What happens is you give them an amount of money to be taken off your wage every month upto a maximum of £243 a month. I decided to go into it at £230 a month.

The best thing is though, you DONíT get taxed on that £230.

I have just got my wage slip today, saved myself £81 a month. I paid £130 Tax and £71 National Insurance Ė make you jealous? Lol.

So in theory, Iím paying £230...

MrRem | I went to my mates pad & Frantic 11

My pal Matt Thomas (Hard Dance fans keep an eye out for him) has just moved into his new pad.


His flat is awesome, its on the top floor and has a 40ft balcony overlooking Canary Wharf.

The house warming party was a pre-party for the Hard Dance night Frantic 11 being held in London.

Nothing like getting in the mood with some beers and random swearing.
