Yes, undo the the bolt holding the existing roller pedal, and bolt on the new one in its place. Straight easy swap with lots of adjustments for the new pedal positions

If it is the like the S1 or the 3.7l Roadster it is docile below 3k then wow!
Glad you like it

Happy motoring with your Roadster S2, John. As I mentioned in the other thread, S1 vs. S2 I think the S2 has a bit more flexibility and its strength is that the power (and torque) is more fluently delivered even at lower revs which makes her such a nice cruiser.

Hi Heinz,

It certainly feels more a capable cruiser, which suits my style of motoring, having enjoyed automatics for decades, I'm a bit of a lazy driver these days and prefer and enjoy using the torque of the engine rather than constantly having to shift up and down the box to keep the engine in that 'sweet' spot as I found with the 4/4. I'm more into relaxing and enjoying the scenery ,rather than as in my youth often becoming part of the scenery when over enthusiastic driving often got me into trouble whether it be on my bikes or in my cars.

Looking forward to the total lifting of the current lockdown, but as soon as that happens everywhere will be awash with people and the roads packed with day trippers, which may curtail things a little till it all settles down again and we get back closer to the pre Covid norms.

regards

John

It makes sense to have sun visors when heading west in the evening

Twice...on Saturday.

First run was to Tesco to get various bits, including a pack of tiny bulbs for the light in the cooker hood.
That task done I turned on the water to the garden tap, the stopcock is inside a kitchen cupboard. Water poured out of the tap by the greenhouse. Turn of the stopcock and take the tap to bits.
The rubber seal had split.
Back to B&Q for a pack of washers... £1.20!!
Home again and fit the washer, turn on the stopcock: job done.

If I'd planned better and sorted the tap first I could have missed out the second drive!

Tarka is running like a dream.. I may have to go out again this afternoon, or on Tuesday!!

I am looking at short shopping trips next week. Mind you, the local carparks for “exercise taking” are overflowing! Whilst walking the dog I have heard quite a few accents from across Loughor bridge too( that is towards Swansea) so it looks like extended driving is coming back. The pub nearby overlooking the lake had some people doing refurb/cleaning during the week so prepping for lockdown relaxation. Their garden area is a nice spot so will be a magnet.

Well I still have the side screens off after the warm phase earlier. But what the hell I thought those bottles need to go to the bottle bank.
Toasty warm in the flying jacket , gloves & woolly hat with the heating & seat heating. The uncle Albert beard & long hair helping.

I thoroughly enjoyed the drama of the start button twice (sad git that I am) laugh2

I was besieged by folk loving the car at the pub car park AKA now the only bottle bank in the village. Lots of photos taken etc.

A nice drive along the sea front & back via the lanes . Perfect. cloud9
