To distract myself from the ongoing brake issue I decided to do something about the gearknob.

As every 100HP owner knows it's something that can really bring the interior down with its flakey brown plastic-ness.

I removed it yesterday to fit my leather gaitor and got busy.

Used some solvent first to remove the plastic coating, then some spare matt black steering wheel renovator I had kicking about.

Then I painted the shifter pattern as all it does is collect dirt and dust.

The end result is pretty good I think and a good alternative to getting it recovered or replacing it with something generic.

Hope you like it

Re: My New 2009 100HP

Took a pic of the rear discs before they got binned, no prizes for guessing which one had the seized caliper.

Also a pic of the rear wheel bearing, the inner race just fell out when I removed it so I'm fairly certain that was the cause of the persistant hum.

Rear calipers, lines and handbrake cables are all here and awaiting fitting, painted the calipers while they were sat around in the shed.

My new blue key case turned up today so I set about swapping the parts over. Turns out the flick key bit was different so I couldn't just use my old one. Just popped to the shops and had the new blade cut so in total it cost 16 which I didn't think was too bad.

All working perfectly and everything on the case is nice and tight.

Also had the aircon filled up this week (you can blame me for the weather turning) as I was only getting warm air coming through. Its now blasting cold but it was completely empty so I have to go back next week when the Panda is in for a service for a check over to make sure there are no leaks.

It could just be that it hasn't been filled up for a long time but my mate just wanted to be sure so he's added some sort of dye to track anything down.

This may be the last update on the Panda for a while as I'll be moving house soon. Just accepted an offer on my current house and put in an offer on a bungalow which has been accepted so for now that's where all my money will be going...
