What was up with it, thought you had it as a camper?

 

 

This was the camper

But is now back to being a van having decided if I'm going to make a camper I'll use something bigger like a sherpa...

 

The white one I bought solely for the axle which will eventually be fitted to this,

After replacing one front wheel bearing and buying the other I'm hoping my wheel bearing type noise has been cured by adding 1/2 a litre of oil to the diff.....


Unsuccessful - if anything bearing noise is more pronounced now diff whine is gone.
Looks like replacing a perfectly smooth, play free bearing is this weekends job.

That's a possibility I hadn't thought of will try swapping the fronts over and see if it changes side.
It goes away on harder cornering.
It's wierd, it's loud enough to notice but not got any worse over a couple of 1000 miles and the mk2 transits have a reputation for the bearings not lasting long once they start to get noisy.

This X1/9 belonged to a rather attractive young lady, she's had it for years as it was her first car and it's only done 28500 miles. It was lovely!

The lockup I keep my Cadillac in is about a mile or so away from the garage that's going to take it in for an MOT.

I drive down in the Juke and go for a nice shore side walk to go and get the Cadillac and bring it back. I'm about half way there looking out to sea, listening to THE DOLLOP pod cast when I hear the word key and think.

Key

Key for the Cadillac

Key for the Cadillac, which is in the Juke. Fuck.

 

I guess I do need the exercise.

The guy I rent my lockup off has this quite smart 323. He got it a couple of years ago and put new arches and an outer sill on it and I think he's sold it and bought it back a couple of times.

He took it in for it's MOT this year. Needs some welding. It's the same both sides.

It's off to fragzville

This went through my local house clearance auction today.  The auctioneer tried to start at £ 300, but the room was dead, he ended up going down to £100, In that fleeting second I had an involuntary hand raising episode. Luckily for me, someone else came in and won it for £220.

My new log cabin garage kit arrived this morning!
I've got bricks and mortar for the base ready to go, foundation already there ready to go. So guess what I'll be doing this weekend...

Not particularly looking forward to building it tbh but I can't wait to get it up and be able to use it. It'll be a perfect home for the Capri.
I'll get some pics up over the next few days, it's a nice looking building.

Having bought the Rover 75 unseen from eBay last month I have now given it a thorough going over...
Looking good. Good service history and signs of a caring owner. Matching tyres, recent service including the cam belts, water pump etc and brake pads and discs. Downside was a badly scratched windscreen due to a damaged wiper blade, but a new screen now fitted on insurance. £60 excess. Nice.

The Cadillac doesn't show on the mot history website for some reason. I didn't have time to call to find out if it passed, I can see a bit of paper under the sun visor but he didn't leave the keys in my lockup. MOT STATUS UNKNOWN.

Actually it looks like bit's of paper under the visor, which indicates a fail. aargh.
