Considering that sometimes a makeshift repair can be not just more cost-effective, but also last longer than a standard replacement part, sounds reasonable

Shame about your coolant tank, althought I feel that a replacement would be better, if you can fix it - give it a try, if it fails well you can always replace it.

Next week my finish mpguino should arrive, so I'm hoping that I can get that installed over midsummer and then I can try to squeeze out a few more km to a liter.

Speaking of midsommar, I might have to raid the forest and make some bastukvastar, then have a few midsommar saunas. I have an italien friend I'm sure that it will be new experience to hit himself with twigs from a tree

Dang it, the War Wagon did not pass inspection.

the brake power was too weak in the right rear whee÷, and the handbrake was too weak on the roll brake tester.

well, i checked by pulling the drum and the brake cylinders were pretty much stuck wiggled em a bit though.

last years inspection they were ok.

I WONDER...

if it's because i've learnt to drive in a more... Engine brakey way, hmm?

Little use can also be detrimental to equipment. You are lucky the abs pump did not fail.

Look at the bright side, i suppose you buy all the stuff you need for the rear brakes for like 100-150 euros? And those will probably last the next ten years
Meaning, replace 'em all while you're at it.

The cheapest, easiest and best mpg gains are with the money at the wheel
