First day back at work today after two weeks holiday...
Except they all seemed surprised to see me, apparently I wasn't due back until tomorrow.
So I drove home and took little one to pre school and then went and fired up the frying pan.
Now waiting for the Postie to bring the replacement heater resistor for the Modus, so I can fit that.

WAHOOO - YES _ GO ON YOU BEAUTY!!!!! etc.. etc...

 

Vendor of one of my all time favourite 'must haves' just rang me back after a week of waiting thinking I'd missed the boat. It's a tank, one of the residents on this very site finally nabbed one recently, although I may have hit the V8 manual jackpot!

Face it - I'm a shiter - so if it's not needing to be swept up to move it I'm buying the fekker!

 

Thread started on main board....... but I'm bouncing like a dog with two dicks at the moment!

Actually if the modus is the same as a note it's easy ( was thinking scenic 2)
If the thermal fuse has popped on the heater resistor then the new one won't last long - the motor is pulling too much current . Now that IS a twat to replace

Selling books at £19 a pop?

Seriously, I have a few friends who are full time boat bums and they fund their adventures either through renting their landside property, writing or doing odd temp jobs on their travels when funds run low

Trust me. Selling books @£19 a pop outside Sainsbury's in East Kilbride will bring in enough income to get you from Sainsbury's in East Kilbride to Sainsbury's in East Kilbride.

I know you are joking but it is a nice part of the country, I have fond memories of riding the Seaton Tramway as a kid.

 

Used to stay at this campsite https://www.manorfarmcaravansite.com/. I would be up for an Autoshite visit to that part of Devon at some point!

 

In fact if I remember I will suggest it next year and see if people are interested.

My mechanic was working on a modus last year and I commented on how I like them-  he said  keep away from them please as they are a bastard to work on. TBF he did have what looked like half the engine out on the side!

In the six weeks I've had mine I've only seen one other, a silver '89 GLE estate. It was LHD and on trade plates. Seems like it's only minters left really now.
