Fiesta Siesta...

Little Fiesta wasn't a happy chappy at all. His wheel had been sore for ages, but after hitting a huge pothole things had gone from bad to worse.

The bearing was making a horrible noise, and the brakes grated awfully when cornering. It made him very grumpy.

Master said he could fix it but he would have to take the wheel completely off. Fiesta didn't like this at all, it didn't feel right only having three wheels...
The master said not to worry about it, sit back and have a Fiesta siesta.

There were a lot of bits laid out on the lawn which was concerning, although the large array of shiny tools allayed Fiestas fears.

However, the string holding everything together didn't inspire confidence that master knew what the hell he was doing!

The new bearing looked very nice thought Fiesta.
It had been left in the freezer to make it contract and so be smaller....


...the hub that it had to be fitted into was put on a camping cooker to heat it up and make it larger. Then the two were brought into union with a combination of swearing and a VERY large hammer!

Soon enough everything was put back together, and Fiesta was glad that none of it was held together with string.

Fiesta was happy again and ready for more adventures...

String in cars! Reminds me so much of my brother's car, before he got fed up putting oil in it every week.
Glad to hear Fiesta is all fiesty again.
