New Front Metzler

New front installed today 21000 KM.

Rear purchased to match but dealer storing until spring as still have enough life in the Lop to get there.

Fred H's videos arrived, very nice indeed. Mity Vac ordered from 20 miles away but one unnecessary border in between so 10 days later still not here.

Cruise lag fixed.

Did the cheat and fixed without removing top shelter. Went smooth.

Should have done this in spring but glad to have it done.

Press cruise and it sets, resume is smooth without the drop of 10 -15 km/hr and then the rapid throttle to get back to the set limit.
