Those are not the painted Tranny bits I am looking for.  

 

Shall I post some sample pictures of painted Tranny bits?  On balance, maybe best not.

Rule 34 type warning - also probably a good idea if you don't Google "painted tranny bits".

What's the retail on one of those plumbed in fire extinguisher systems?

Well, I have been quite busy with the Pug :-D

 

After discovering the discs I thought would fit, didn't, and purchasing new ones, made life a great deal easier with fitment :-P

 

yesterday I gave the bugger a good cleanse and purifying before MOT time- came up quite well for the first pass 8)

 

IMG_20170426_125537_zps6chq0it0.jpg?w=28

 

Failed on some bulbs,  insecure headlamp, middle box exhaust blow, and a front ball joint buggered, so not too bad at all :-)

 

treated her to a different cd player, with working deck 8)

 

old one -

 

IMG_20170425_122848_zpsomla30a3.jpg?w=28

 

iso connector for quick win, love these :-D

 

IMG_20170425_122902_zpsktcixg67.jpg?w=28

 

New one

 

IMG_20170425_122856_zpsziolw61w.jpg?w=28

 

Now to try and price up a balljoint/radius arm, seems to vary on ebay from £25 to £70, and maybe get the exhaust welded up, due to cash flow issues, unless someone buys that trailer tent soon :?

V good, but I have TEH CONFUZE about testing it now, as you knew already that it would fail on the exhaust and on bulbs.  The last fail (in Feb) did not pick up the ball joint.   Because lampy gets, I assume.

 

Let me know if you want to change the name of the thread.

 

"djimbob's new gopping purple stereo thread",  maybe?

 

xxxxxx

 

The old stereo was originally in the Alfa 156 Sportwagon that Six-Cylinder now has, so bring the stereo to Shitefest and give it to him then?

I knew it would fail, just quite on what was the issue - today I have removed the lower wiswhbone on which the failed balljoint resides - what an arse, ruined a track rod end in the process, but it's off, so just need to go purchase replacements and fit, and do all the little daft jobs, whilst searching for cost effective exhaust solutions :-D

 

By all means change the thread title BV, perhaps with the make and model in the title so others can search for wisdom when fixerating simular problems? I shall leave the wordage in your hands :-D

 

If I remember I shall bring the stereo to shitefest, along with a couple of boxes of assorted filters I have, ideal for shiters, hopeless for normal folk :-P

Hello what is this? Yes, it's the final stage in operation get a new MOT on the Pug, some welding on the centre exhaust silencer by my tame welder 8)

IMG_20170504_154919_zps2nqsb90t.jpg

 

Had to fix the headlight properly, so out it came

 

IMG_20170503_110503_zpszjpnucke.jpg

 

Got a bit carried away, and effected a smoll repair on the dented wing, not much better, but have tidied up and made bumpers etc more sturdy :-P

 

IMG_20170503_110453_zpsy5s0maeq.jpg

 

The finished* article - well, will do until a new wing is bought :-P

 

IMG_20170503_134015_zpsskbohu32.jpg

 

In my defence, I was running out of time, and just wanted to see how hard it would be to get the wing off, seemed daft to not have a go at making it a bit tidier.

 

Well, going to try and get her in for the retest tomorrow, fingers crossed all will be well :-D

 

Typically the roof has decided not to play ball in this scorching weather, but the good news is the aircon works like a champ 8)

 

Unfortunately this will have to go to pastures anew once the test is passed, as I have a distinct lack of funds in my bank, and we're off to France in a week and a half with my parents, and no spending money, so I'm putting it out there to any interested shiters, large discount available for quick sale :-D

 

Many thanks to BV who gave me the opportunity to skin my knuckles on this babe magnet of much Gallicness, I have quite enjoyed giving it a new lease of life, but it's not for me long term, being stick shift - if it was an auto, I would seriously have considered keeping it - my tame mechanic/welder was very impressed by the lack of rust underneath, and I think she has a few years good motoring left in her :-D

 

PM me if you're interested, I will consider p/x's, but only if automatic flavour, and a bit of cash coming my way (I really am on my arse cash flow wise at the moment), happy to accommodate timewasters and tyrekickers :-D

 

I've got about £300 in it so far, and would like a wage for the week or so's work I've done and improvements such as the stereo, so I hope a price of £400 would be fair? It's insured and will be MOT'ed, and I'd trust it to drive a long way indeed ( I did many miles collecting the other week just fine :-D )

I like that, but not as much as my CJ sadly (or happily, depending on which way you look at it).

 

GLWTS dude.

 

EDIT: I shall add that the asking here is rather less than I paid for my much older, less equipped CJ, making its Gallic convertibleness something of a bargain.

thank you sir for the kind words, I think the battery may be goosed, and require changing for one with a little more beans left in it! (having said that she fires up first turn of the key, and is showing no other symptoms other than slow electric windows, and the digital dash readout thingy, but this may be enough to prevent the roof raising, which is a heavy thing).

 

Also, GOOD NEWS - we have a MOT pass as of this afternoon :-D

 

I am not sure about a roffle, need the bugger gone quite swiftly due to cashflow woes, will have to have a ponder :?

The sun is out, I put my hand in my wallet, and ebay delivered a brand new battery this morning, and bingo!

 

We have roof frolics immediately 8)

 

IMG_20170531_152057_zpsyo3mcfoc.jpg?w=28

 

Still got the same bumps and dinks from breadvan's ownership, except I have pulled out the dented wing a bit, and straightened out the bumper indentation, fixed it back on solidly etc - it will have to do now, not inclined to go any further down the road of tarting, just so long as the mechanics are spot on I'm happy :-D

Unfortunately the price has now had to rise, I would like £500 for the blue wonder, worth it for the amazing aircon, which was cold almost on start up this afternoon - great little car, but surplus to requirements - I want to sort out the Saab now, and I fear that is going to be a proper project :shock:

 

Here they both are, topless 8)

I think I may need to start a new thread on the Saab, I haven't had one before, so parts etc are a mystery compared to other marques for me, and foibles etc - I don't really know how this is supposed to drive and handle, but I have a feeling it's in need of quite an overhaul :-P :shock:

Just got back now. Sorry couldn't stay and have a brew . I have to go straight out now to that bloody meeting. Anyway my older lad has disappeared with the gay pug. He said he will bring it back later. I am going to look for some tight shorts and maybe a vest for driving round in it. Lovely to meet you again . Top class seller ,would recommend.

It adds to the overall ambience. The kids love it. We went to the airport last night and watched the planes landing with our roof down. Just got to get a sparent wheel . I shall have room because it's only going to be used for shits and giggles.

The wheels and tyres on these cars are PHAT.  Would a full size spare fit inside the boot when the top is down?  Or are you thinking of getting a space saver?  

 

BTW, I once tried the aerosol tyre repairer that comes as standard with a Pug 206 CC (no spare wheel is supplied).  It was rubbish!  That was on another one of these cars, not the blue one.   Tyre nommage is a bit of a thing with these, as the tyres are way too low profile.

I think a space saver will fit or maybe a stell one. Tyres are a bit big. Steering is a bit heavy . But then again compared to my jap bus everything seems heavy. I came home and my son has stuck a powered by fairy dust sticker on the boot. How we laughed.
