GBMUD Posted May 28, 2006 Share Posted May 28, 2006 Last week I changed my D90's hard top for the soft top that has been in the garage for the last three years. Since then it has rained almost constantly - I suspect that the low rainfall of the last few years will soon be a thing of the past. In changing over roofs I had to remove the high lift jack which lives vertically on the back of the car. Needing to do some more work on the seatbelt mounts and the roll hoop I left the jack out of the car pending permanent relocation inside the car (with the Quickfists I now have). Today, the work having been done, and on the way home from Slindon on the A36 just outside Romsey I heard what I thought must have been a helicopter above me. I soon worked out that it was the O/S trailer tyre going flat. Of course, you know where the jack still is, don't you? Still, the very nice man was quite quick getting out to me and at least I had a serviceable spare. I have not had a roadside puncture for years - possibly never in the Landrover - and all that time I wondered why I carried the bloody jack everywhere. Now I know.
