Lol, I have a few bits of that one!
It is gone indeed, these parts are from a serial hoarder in Cambs. I'm going down next week in Moog's 406 wagon.


Just seen that on FB. So you've already got one of my old R8s, and you're about to get bits off of another?! Neat.

Why I love independents.

 

V6 has had drastic loss of air in the front nearside tyre - 10psi or so over a few days. I couldn't see a puncture when I had the wheel off previously, so took it to my local indie tyre place, VTS, 2 mins drive away.

 

Rob the owner dropped the tyre in a huge paddling pool and we immediately saw what the problem was - air coming out between the rim and the tyre. Pops the tyre off, cleans the rims down, tyre on, balances it - no air loss. 

 

He also managed to release the stuck wheel nut on the offside tyre (with a whole lot of grunting and brute force and ignorance, and a mutha of all breaker bars). And cracked a huge smile (rare, apparently)

 

Total cost ? £15.

 

Had I taken it to KwikShit no doubt they'd have said tyre cannot be saved, buy a whole new set of Chinese deathrings for eleventy billion quid please, sir.

 

Rob - a man of few words, loyal customer earned.

181 miles in.... needed a splash of Tesco’s finest* 10w40 and some air in the tyres before leaving but it’s been ace so far.

I haz done a buyage. But this addition is not something challenging, exciting, or even new to me, and as the collection involved a nerve wracking all-of-ten-miles drive home, I am set to disappoint you all in regards to collection drama. Not even a pez station shot.

Soz.

So! What haz been procured? Lankytim will already have guessed, as he pointed it out to me about three days ago and Keymaster knows far too much of what goes on at Chez Chod to not be aware of today's new arrival:

BlueVoyager.jpg

Yes, this sad sack of shite has joined the fleet. It is currently in the naughty corner, as the MAP sensor or possibly something else that causes the 5V line to drop out, creates a frisson of uncertainty to every journey: will it even start, let alone get me some of the way there? It did manage to heave its ludicrous bulk from the house of the seller to the home of the gullible, but it proved the seller's 'shpares or reapers' approach to selling it wise, by starting one time in 20 at the viewing and test drive. Once it was going, I was very reluctant to switch it off again. Even though the key can be removed from the ignition without forcing this issue...

In its favour, it was only slightly too expensive to not gain a shoe in to the 'Drive away for £200, the cheapest of cheap shite' thread, has an MOT till March, has what may turn out to be fully functioning LPG, and crucially, has an operational drivers window, which our ailing silver OMGHGF Voyager is sadly lacking.

Yes, you read that right: I am currently the proud* owner of two - yes TWO! - two 2002 (keep up at the back, there) Chrysler Grand Voyagers. Both are decidedly sticky and smelly inside, but one of them may respond to a cheap fix, while the other requires me to shell out nearly six ponies for the chance to find out if I've royally shagged what was otherwise a fine engine.

Which of these vehicles will pass another MOT and which will have its not insubstantial bulk sent over the bridge?

Prace bets now!

I seem to have put a deposit on another white Citroen bx. It's a 1.4 st Tropez, complete poverty spec except for a tilting glass sunroof and fantastic looking seats. Proper petrol with a carb and choke knob. Been many a year since I've had one of those. Need to get the scrap bx cut up now so I can get the new one brought home.
