Thought I'd keep what occupies my lunch breaks all in the one thread, I have been very busy the last few months bringing these two (and the Audi, for sale as soon as a replacement V70 arrives) up to scratch.

 

First up, a rather dashing Mk1 Focus Estate, State blue 125k (I think, I will check when the snow passes over) OIRO £600

  • 1.6 16v Zetec
  • Alloy Wheels
  • A/c
  • Heated front screen
  • Both keys & remote locking
  • Full Mot
  • Massive boot

I have given the car a minor service, stripped and rebuilt the front brakes and put a good pair of budget tyres on the front. It has covered under 1000 miles in the last couple of years and is still a little musty inside, it would make a cracking workhorse or boot sale bus for someone.

 

I shall add more pictures once I have had a chance to clean it properly, but right now it's snowing sideways so it'll have to wait.

Next up is a slightly dogeared Berlingo Multispace, it's the 1.9 dw8 engine, and has covered 151k £650 OVNO

 

  • Remote locking & both keys
  • Electric windows
  • Cd player
  • Errm...
  • Big boot

I've given it an interim service, a new spring, replaced the master cylinder and the brake fluid, new front discs & pads, put 2 part worn tyres on the front, done the tracking and am now in the process of giving it a through clean inside and out.

Faults that i'm aware of are that the RH mirror is damaged, the scuff on the LHR quarter panel, the engine is quite oily (most of them are, but I always mention these things up front). It is due a cam belt at the next service due to age.

I am located in South Lincolnshire, close to either Boston or Lincoln for public transport access.

 

Any questions, please ask.

Hi Ian,

 

I haven't had a chance to give it a proper scrub up yet as this weekend it decided to snow AGAIN. Hopefully I'll get time tomorrow morning, weather permitting!

Gave it a quick rinse off before I head out this morning, it really needs a deep clean though.

I haven't got the interior cleaned yet, it's a bit minging.

Yep, that looks like a bit of me. I need a couple of days to sort out the logistics of getting time off work and finding my way to Lincolnshire (Im in County Durham).

I can take it to work with me to put it near Lincoln station if that helps any?

I think the scuff on the rear bumper will come off but I didn't have any tcut to hand to try it.

There is still almost a full tank of fuel with it, but I would recommend running it to half and refilling with fresh or 98Ron as it is likely stale.

Berlingo went through the MOT today, if anyone suddenly has need for a very practical motorised shed.

Thanks to those interested, but the Focus has now gone to a new home in Barnsley.

With the collection due for today on the Berlingo, last week I replaced the niggly drop link and the brake flexihose as the car had previously had issues this side and it was the only component on the hydraulic side that I hadn't replaced or rebuilt.

Also added the most important final touch;
