I carry all my tools with me and any spares I have. The theory being if I have them I won’t need them. It’s worked for the last twenty years!

Other 'stuff' going on in family life meant that I couldn't attend FOTU yesterday and I've spent most of the last week or two driving only the Avensis. Not a good state of affairs when it's the middle of summer and I should be using the older things.

 

Finally got a few minutes to fit some eBay purchase parts onto the Sunny:

 

P1010186.JPG

 

Plugs, leads (to replace the originals dated 1987) and an air filter.

 

P1010189.JPG

 

Even I managed to get them on without breaking anything and it still worked again afterwards. Hopefully it'll give me cleaner starting from cold, it didn't seem to like any dampness.

Its blatantly beyond fucked. No point carrying on with it at all. I tell you what I'll give you £300, no £500 for it as I'm feeling generous even though i have no use for it, just trying to help out a fellow shiter in need.

Does anyone know where to get windscreen seal inserts by the metre rather than pre-cut for a specific car?  I need 8 metres, ideally in black rather than chrome.  Also needs to be 8-10mm wide, though I suspect they're all the same width anyway and this measurement doesn't really matter.  I can't reuse what's on the car as it's shrunk and has gone brittle (the seal insert, that is, not the car).

Project Fusion disposal has begun. First stop Clacket Lane, then Cobham shortly after thanks to the smoothie that went straight through. Traffic heavy until the M3.

Premier Inn at Andover achieved (3 hours in all!), Exeter and then St Ives tomorrow....

I think this is the one I want: https://www.woolies-...-screen-insert Can't believe I didn't think to check Woolies on this one.  I can't find another they do that's flat-backed, there's nowhere for a pointed-back to go in the seals I've got and I don't think it'll compress enough to work if I tried.  About £30 posted, plus whatever the fitting tool costs, which isn't too bad.

 

I could fit the stainless over-trim that fits in the same slot (salvaged from a series 1 car), they look nice, but nobody seems to know what tool I need to fit it with and it's of a design that trying to do it with screwdrivers or whatever isn't going to work.

I must be getting to like the Merc. I have started to worry about it so I must be! I was having a panic earlier about play in the steering near full lock (they all do that sir!) and then worried about the gearbox going into reverse as it seems to pause for about 1 tenth of a second before doing as requested. I hate me, when I don't care about cars, I relax and just drive the sods, then when I do like them, I worry needlessly about trivial things and get all worked up!

 

Polished it yesterday, it does come up most pleasingly )

I don't know that it is. They all have a pointed back to them and I'm pretty sure that won't fit in my window seal which has no accomodation for the point. The trim that's fitted is flat on the back, as is the slot it goes into. Good to know the name of the stuff for future reference at any rate.

Twiggy:  Took me a moment to figure out what the link was, it was throwing me to a generic page.  Same issue as the stuff Eddie linked in that it has that point on the back that's not compatible with my seal.  The Princess window seals are annoyingly specific and one of the few things they didn't parts bin.

Well I've done what I said I'd never do....I've joined a union.

 

After three plus years of my bosses ignoring my attempts to get paid for the job I do & the HR dept here ignoring my requests to lodge an official grievance I've run out of other options. I still disagree with most of what this union stands for, as most of their ideas are bloody stupid but if it gets me the correct money I'll stay a member till the process is complete.
