Problems with the jeep. The body mounts on the side aren’t working and the rear brakes are playing up. I paid to have all the brakes rebuilt and they still have issues. It’s so frustrating when people don’t do things right the first time. They don’t realise when they say, “just bring it back and I’ll fix it” that it means time off work and further expenses. The job I paid for ends up costing me hundreds of dollars more in inconvenience. Frustrating!
The other frustrating item are the new gauges. I paid a small fortune for “Classic Instruments” gauges and the tacho was defective from new. It had a dirty smear mark on the inside and looked like it had been water damaged. The dealer offered to repair it under warranty but it was defective from new and not a matter of warranty. I don’t have the time for the fight so anyway it’s still crap even after the bodgy repair job since it now fogs up on cold mornings, has dust particles inside and still has remnants of the dirty smear marks. I will be writing more on these gauges in the near future. They are crap and will be going in the bin. I’ll be buying a better brand next time. If you are considering new gauges, give Classic Instruments a wide berth and go for something better known and a company who has dealers who stand by the product and don’t just fob their customer off.
