I like a 406 coop.
Should have been the natural progression from a saloon, but I bought a 407 instead!

I fucking hate football, have been avoiding it so far, fucking hateful sport then our bloody director says we can all go home at 5pm if we are done to 'get home in time to see the game'

I feel dirty now, but I bloody well left at 5.

Hopefully we loose whenever it is and it can all be over with. I might fuck the local dominoes off by ordering pizza in half an hour

The world needs more 2stroke diesels.

I had a good chat with the owner of a two stroke, three cylinder Turner engined series one Land Rover at the weekend. 2.1 litre and supercharged.

Turner made v4 diesels for Yeoman tractors too. Very interesting stuff.

I should have taken a vid. Here's a youchoob one

I don't think the staff at our local branch would care. They are more likely to be Croatian.

Unless that's what you meant.

*Note: not racist or ukip rant, simply an observation that they might not care about an In-Geerr-Lund game.

Very quite outside tonight. Is something going on that I don't know* about?

In this peace and quiet I've made a lot of noise while fitting a decent lock on the garage.

Does that go on the outside or the inside? I’m thinking of getting something similar for my parent’s up n over garage door.

Outside. Need to mount it into concrete. So I had to dig the big hole around the tarmac and then filled with concrete first. I'll probably fill the top over with tarmac to tidy the job up and stop water pooling in there.

The concrete edge of the garage base is about a foot proud before the tarmac drive starts so that’s doable. Where did you buy from if you don’t mind?

Screwfix but you can get it cheaper from Amazon and other places online. You'll need a 10mm and 16mm drill bit. Possibly an SDS drill if the concrete is particularly hard.

These are the destructions.

I have read advice online to take the end caps and fill the tube bit with expanding foam. Bit of a weak point as someone can put a long bar in and leaver it off.

So, the Fusion will be leaving next week for a new life in St Ives on a very different part of coastline. At 3 years, 9 months it's the car I've owned 2nd longest ever, and also the only car that I bought for more than £1k (I won't be making that mistake again!). Overall it has always had niggles, and I have never enjoyed owning it. I will not miss it. 

 

22-23k miles in that time (117k total)

 

However, it doesn't really have any rust, cambelt was less than four years ago, Clutch this year. It should soldier on for a couple more years.

https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2018071...

Looks decent but my problem with those sort of locks is they are very visible......on the one hand it's a deterrent, on the other it says "hey over here, something worth stealing"

There were a few spates of garage thefts I'd heard of where van load of scummy types reverse up to garage door, cordless grinder to cut around locks and peel back the thin metal.

In and out in no time.

My da threw some angle iron up at the sides of his garage door (on the inside), welded some plates to the back of the door itself to which he mounted substantial bar locks which slide into holes in the angle iron.

Should certainly keep his washing machine, wood offcuts, out of date paint in and collection of old rusty bolts safe....

If you knew someone with a welder.....

That was something I was debating if it does shout that there maybe something to steal. However the neighbour has one fitted on their garage and he's never had any problems. Plus he has a motorbike in there, which seem to be the number one thing to be nicked. There is usually a car always on the drive though which blocks the view of that lock.
