I'm in. I am happy to take a Range Rover or Visa apart.

The Rover 75 might be a bit more involved - what do you actually want off it? Are we saving that gorgeous blue interior?

I was hoping to come but domestic stuff and car fixings at home take priority this time I'm afraid.  A replacement coolant pipe for the Metro and rear brake pads on the Cavalier are planned.  I'm hoping to get the former job done at the very least!

I wish they didn't - I'm stressed enough as it is. I am now refusing to answer the phone in case I yell down the phone at a customer.
I have to sort out our BSI readiness for ISO 9001:2015 assessment. It's all management speak gobbledegook. Kill me now!

Example.... what is the top management commitment to the quality management system? Well you're speaking to the owners, directors and workers- yes both of us!

It is, but I need to get in the correct state of mind- waffle endlessly on about commitment and improvement. Etc. It's not me ( or our company- we are determined to be non corporate.) I got landed with this gig twenty years ago as I'd just come from another company with BS5750 and FDA accreditation. It's all men's round hairy objects!


Edit. Off topic and I'm sorry for hijacking the thread. I was looking forward to dismantling Kermit the visa too.

Thanks again Chris for a good day of tinkering :) Was good to meet some new shiters and get my hands dirty (the mouth of petrol, not so much!).

 

I only took the one pic, of the Skoda providing some juice to the slightly worse for wear Visa, but I'm sure six cylinder will give a write up in due course!

Much tea and coffee was drunk. Also lots of moped action, Visa dismantling, Spitfire fixerating and just general tinkering. Weather was great to boot :)

One of my dogs took a real liking to the Visa and spent a few hours chilling inside it.

I don't think it got started today (certainly while I was there, though I was the last to arrive and the first to leave).

Quicksilver Snr was battling the offside rear brakes for the duration.

The Alfa had its brakes released and wheel refitted. 

 

One thing I learnt today, don't park your mower in gear with the engine running, its a long walk to get it back!

 

Thanks guys a great day.

AnthonyG was working diligently on that all day, and it looked not far off being ready for the engine to be removed when I left.

I did see him employ a hammer at one point, but it was used in conjunction with a Haynes manual, so all above board...!
