PS: Photographage has been achieved, but the pics will be emailed by me to the collectioneer, and he can judge whether to uncloak himself and whether to share the pics with you lot.

 

At present, the Pug is believed to be somewhere on the M40 heading towards the M42 and points beyond.  Pez has been purchased.  The top is down.  Shades and a comedy hat are being worn. The CD player appears to be borked, but some massive cherhoonze are emitting from the radio.

That ^ is good news, glad it worked out in the end.

 

I also have a theory (which could probably be wrong) as to how someone forgot to pay... usually in previous roffles, a group PM is sent out to those on the list with payment info, this reminds folk what they've let themselves in for. However iirc, the p.pal address was posted publicly in this thread, and it could have been missed easily enough.

Back on thread:  the Pug has arrived in a City that may or may not be regarded as Northern.  Its new owner is alleged to be tired but happy, after an afternoon spent connecting with his inner manicurist via the wonders of early noughties French automotive technology.  Also, biscuits.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it. And if it is broke just ignore it, and maybe it'll be sort of OK...?

I know for a fact you are a very, very intelligent person, contradicting what you think I think. If that's what you were thinking.

I think I have stupidly confused myself by overthinking this. Therefore I think I am more stupid than you. So I think I'm right. :)

Awaiting the arrival of the collectioneer - one classical structure outside another, AKA one old heap outside another old heap.  One of these is a museum.  The other should be in one.

206 CCs really are dinky.  I don't care who knows it:  I think they are ace cars.  Mrs BV and I shall miss having that old wreck at our place.  Also the blue Peugeot.

They were a basted good car. Handy hint for a roof that's u/s: drive it round for a bit, stop then try the roof again. Don't ask me how, it just works,

 

 

We found this to be true yesterday.  I had left the car with the roof down because the interior keefed of fags and spliff and dog arse.  The battery was having a zizz because the car had been sat around for weeks, and so the roof wouldn't go back up, but all but it needed was some volts.  The windows on the driver's side are haunted by un fantôme mystérieux  as they go up and down of their own accord.

Anyone who knows me, would find that a fair assessment :-P

 

However, new smoll frog Chod performed admirably on the three hour or so trip back to Northern climes, and here she is. locked up in my yard, ready for sorting the brakes n shizzle out today :-D

IMG_20170418_184031_zpsek91nrc9.jpg?w=28

 

I think I shall hijack this thread as another seems a bit pointless, so the next post will be pic heavy, well for me anyway :-P

It all started when I spotted BV put out a call to stop a seemingly unwanted car from the crusher, and with no space, money or wantage for a manual box by me or the ladies in my family, it seemed obvious to put my services forward :shock:

 

I think the whole decision hinged on the fact I have a new set of discs and pads for the front of  PUG 207, 2008 year, left over from Daughter's old dizzler - gods know if they fit or not, today I shall find out :-P

 

I booked a megabus ticket to Oxford, setting off at six in Daughter's Lexus at six o'clock in the AM - oooof :shock:

 

IMG_20170418_061002_zpsrxkzbtun.jpg?w=28

 

Leeds bus station acheived, Daughter off to work!

 

IMG_20170418_061205_zpsxhslhiip.jpg?w=28

 

Megabus was late, but mega nonetheless

 

IMG_20170418_063409_zpsqfdtmqyb.jpg?w=28

 

Some light reading - helped me to snooze during the five and a half hour trip, also remembered to bring earplugs to drown out coach wankers, good job as young man two rows back proceeded to quietly sing out loud to his "walkman", as the kids on the street are wont to do :-D

 

IMG_20170418_064350_zpshqmiufbk.jpg

 

And a huge gap in pictures which I'm hoping BV will fill, in which he picked me up at Oxford Beaumont Street, took me on a tour of Oxford, and let me drive the Sprint back to his palatial gaff in the sticks, fed and watered me, and was generally a true gent all round :-D

 

IMG_20170418_135714_zpswmysjsyf.jpg

 

Thirty quids worth of unleaded, no need for air or anything else, jumped in and buggered off back to colder climes, with the top down for the win 8)

 

And back at the yard, where I jumped in the Saab of Eddy, for an interesting immediate comparison

 

IMG_20170418_183908_zpsq9x4pwkw.jpg

IMG_20170418_183913_zpsarjwqy9m.jpg

 

very interesting to go from the two litre Sprint of great age, to this two litre of much newness - both great fun, but the feeling of reliability on the modern is hard to shake when planning a long journey etc, then going to the Saab, which is somewhere inbetween on a 94 plate, but auto and a lot biggerer.

Verdict, I think I prefer the Saab all round, but the Pug is really a brilliant example of a light, frugal French motah, complete with supernatural electrickery, capable of huge miles in comfort and style (of a hair mechanic).

 

Once again, a huge thanks to BV, I am donating my bike chod to charity to balance my karma due to not being a roffler originally, and some other stuff too, I can thoroughly recommend him, would mooch free chod and biscuits off again :-P :-D :-D

 

The plan is now to go and fix the bugger, and stick it thru a test, and see if there is a loving home out there now the sun is threatening to show it's face - pics to follow, wish me luck, I'm going in now :-D

he started this need for topless driving with his 205 :shock: :-D

 

Just had the wheel off the Pug, definitely needs pads, and looks like I have a set of discs that fit the front, so had to go buy pads as the ones I had don't fit. I shall post later with pics :-D

So today I was keen to have a look at how bad the brakes were, they felt on their last legs, and it turns out they very much were, which was not a shock due to full disclosure by BV :-D

 

IMG_20170419_123851_zpsq1klpujs.jpg

 

not the same as the pads I was hoping to use, but the discs are it looks like, so not the end of the world

 

IMG_20170419_123837_zps5rwwdiax.jpg

 

A trip to the motor factors and we have pads front and rear, you can see the discs I took with me to check with them to see if they matched the one's they would potentially sell me - bit cheeky but I'm a regular, so they didn't mind! Also could'nt get the hub nut off to remove old one's to check due to not having a 35mm socket or ring spanner - bummer, turns out they are a tenner each, so bought a set off ebay, coming on Saturday, sizes 30mm to 38, £28, so much better value for money :-D  Wiper blades a tenner, could have got just the rubber part cheap I suppose, but these will do nicely.

 

IMG_20170419_150214_zpslezqh4uh.jpg

 

Those annoying plastic nut covers are a first for me, not a fan of alloys, and the locknut seems pretty bloody pointless, but then I've never woken up to find any of my shite on bricks, so what do I know :-P

 

IMG_20170419_120644_zpsweckcj1c.jpg

 

I came prepared to refill all fluids - no need, all were fine, nice one BV 8)

 

IMG_20170419_120612_zpszvnaolp3.jpg

 

IMG_20170419_120608_zpsrecefoye.jpg

 

Big two litre pezzer for a smoll car 8)

IMG_20170419_112350_zpsivxm6wyv.jpg

 

Should have started with this picture, my transit "camper", full of tools n shite, but apparently not containing the one socket to do the bloody job :-P

Note the tartan travel blankets, literally they make all they cover invisible to scrotes, amazing, and take that Harry Potter and Bilbo Baggins you twats, should have gone to netto and saved yourself a load of bother :-D

 

So I've got not a lot to do really until Saturday when the socket turns up, aside from fit the wipers and maybe try that waterless car spray I've had for sodding ages (no easy access to water at lock up, nor electric, unless next door is in and lets me use his facilities) - I might well take a look at removing the dented wing, might not, depends on what distracts me next :-P

Regular viewers may recall that djimbob did me a massive favour by wrestling me to the ground and forcibly preventing me from buying a shitbag MGF with a borked head gasket, just a few short weeks ago.  Naturally, therefore, I was delighted when he manfully stepped forward to take on the manly task of removing a clapped out French woopsymobile from my neigbourhood, so restoring my standing in the community at large.

 

Here is the manly and rugged adventurer in automotive astonishingness making his escape from the Megabus -

Attempts to fuel the Peugeot using Elnett and assorted Vidal Sassoon products failed, so the manly and rugged manly man that is djimbob resorted to pez:-

Yep.  He may be a bit Northern, is our Jim, but he's not a thickie.

 

 

Djimbob, I have car giver awayerer's remorse. If you pimp it up, can I buy it back off you? How about, I dunno, a pack of Choco bics?

I started today off well, full of good intentions, starting with the wiper blades, for obvious reasons!

 

 

IMG_20170420_103616_zps6rdt1awg.jpg

 

Fixated :-D

 

IMG_20170420_104934_zpsnr1bxuce.jpg

 

Onto the gearshift knob, venturing where no more nails had failed :?

 

IMG_20170420_105125_zpssphdf1rk.jpg

 

Success level unknown, just left the araldite to cure, untested so far, confidence high in failure to adhere in near future :-P

 

And that was that, due to realising the rear calipers need a wind back tool to retract the pistons, for the fitment of new pads (old ones legal, but on their last legs for sure, so off to try and find a reasonably priced on at the usual motor factors -

 

IMG_20170420_123938_zpsns0xn3z8.jpg

 

tried motosave in hunslet, all they had were universal kits, at twice the price on ebay, so on exiting to try elsewhere, spotted a long metal pipe hanging down from underneath the transit of much smoothrite - had to crawl under and liberate it :shock:

 

IMG_20170420_143039_zpskrjb1nfk.jpg

 

arse biscuits, the exhaust was a bodge job when I got it, and I have managed to replace certain sections, but not the back end, which is pleasingly* customised - now I need to figure out how to enhance it further without spunking loads of quids for the mot which is helpfully out in a couple of weeks :-(

 

So I gave up and went home, buggered about on ebay, and had a bath :-D

Twas an afternoon of much disaster, involving brushes, rollers, unseasonable sunshine and fast curing, expensive smoothrite, topped off with a heated debate with next door neighbour criticising the aesthetic qualities of my pride and joy, seemingly oblivious we were slap bang in the middle of trying to make the fucking thing blend into the urban environment more successfully than in it's previous incarnation of very rusty plasterer's wagon :shock:

 

I like to think we achieved maximum levels of success in our endeavours, as the photo's plainly demonstrate :-P :-P

That cool green Renault camper in the background is for sale in Thame.  The silver beardy dude who owns it is asking 3,300, but will probably take 3,000 or whatevs.  The camper is in good nick inside and out, and quite spacious.  Only a wheezy 1.6 and it's a big van, but it has a Weber carb instead of a Solex, and a swankpot exhaust system for OMG added  0.00001 BHP.    Five speed manual, FWD.

I really don't know know because I have lost the list, and it doesn't matter, and I'm not cross, or owt,  but if you feel that your Karma may be depleted, bung a few sovs in a tin for refugees, or shot-up soldiers, or any charity, please, but preferably not one for fluffy bunnies or one that has any version of God in it.  Charidees for Planet Earth humans good.  All others can GTFO.
