If it cleared up en-route its probably fixed right?

 

I mean, it must be.

 

Or its an inlet?

 

 

SHOW US THE OIL!

 

 

Very well done getting it home under its own steam/pez though.  I wish my gooonards were this big.  I also regret not having a go at the last EDDYFEST when I was offered the reins.

That's almost too easy!
Is it too good to break?


According to SWMBO, no.

Afraid not.

It’s very down on power and running on six/seven at a guess.

Stopped smoking though.

I presume it’s finished off what was left in the sump.

The funny thing is you keep hearing the beep beep beep echoing around the yard but you’ve no idea which one it is.

Solihull plates on the diesel in the doorway.

It always amuses me that e46s vie with the PT Cruiser as the car that's too shit for Autoshite,

They're probably conspiring against you.

I’ve been having a play today with both cars. Curiosity got the better of me so I opened up the ECU on the diesel keeper to see what’s what.

This is the label on the top of the chip...

A2E8483D-6DC1-4AE3-AD1C-36F438710E99.jpeg

A spot of googling suggests it could be the product of a company called Collins Performance who seem to remaps under the name of Powerchips.

May well drop them an email on Monday to see if they can shed any light on it.

In other news, I’ve managed to fix the steering column adjuster that I knackered on the way up Saabnuts drive at the start of a 355 mile road trip.

The steering wheel adjuster did the same thing on brother's car. Annoyingly it was Father Fumbler that did it. We fixed it too, after a couple of hours of arguing.

It’s been a relatively productive day.

Managed to sort out the exhaust blow on FOS, cleaned some more mud off and possibly bodged/fixed the rear suspension height sensor.

Unfortunately, the mud was actually structural and removal of aforementioned has revealed a little more in the way of welding requirements than originally anticipated...

If it’s any consolation (it’s not really) the other side isn’t too bad. Oh well, I’ve seen a lot worse, admittedly on Morris Minors and Discoverys but everywhere else underneath is remarkably grot free.

Thanks to Beko1987 and his fine choice of part worn tire renumeration (cheers Sam, there was no need but thanks anyway), the next instalment, the evaluation of the spares vehicle, will probably have to wait until tomorrow...

Yes, but this is NE Scotland, the worlds salt storage area!

 

Where abouts is that rot? Difficult to work out from the photo?

Just at the front of the inner sills on both sides.

Honestly Nick, it’s no biggie at all...the spares car I bought last night is like that all the way from front to back on both sides but it’s no big deal to repair...a couple of hours work, that’s all :-)

I was offered a very tidy P38 HSE 4.6 with LPG conversion at a good price last week. Whilst thinking about going for a look at it to buy it I remembered the beep! The best part of FOS was the economy and ride. The HSE would only have half of this so I declined! The beep has won here!

Looks not too hard for mr Leeds to learn his welding on.

Both sides looked ok till a wire bursh was used and it flaked off. Not structural though.

The new one is gone all the way along whereas the old new one just needs a couple of touch ups.

The different in Scottish winters and the other one is quite marked. Things like brake dust plates have disappeared, lots of rusty bits but mainly surface.

Still manages to beep a fuck load though!
