Does anyone know SmokinWaffle? I've tried messaging him again but he's not been on-line since yesterday morning. I'll set a deadline of 5.30pm tonight then re-offer the last two numbers if I've not heard back by then.
 
If anyone wants to lay claim to two (possible) numbers please say so asap, thanks.


Ball bags - my sincerest apologies - had a bastard of a weekend which meant I barely got sleep let alone getting on a PC. Glad somebody won though - sorry for the hassle. Sad I didn't get a shot but it's my own fault!

Ok then, time for a collection.

Bag packed, map consulted - that's further than I realised :(

IMG_5505.JPG

A short stroll along the canal to the station (the two chaps piloting the canal boat were having a great time, the two wifes sat in the deck looked totally fed up with their nonsense)

IMG_5513.JPG

Right, let's check the train times

IMG_5506.JPG

Bugger !

But then a really happy train appeared, things are going to be alright after all

IMG_1680.JPG

I got to Haymarket in time to catch the fast train

IMG_5508.JPG

which was fast but was missing the free wifi and phone charging points I was led to expect :(

still, it got me to Crewe where I changed onto a rattley old local train for local people (that i forgot to take a photo of) and was met at Chester station by Mr Cavcraft himself

IMG_5509.JPG

What a smashing guy, not content with giving me a free car, he'd provided me with a picnic for the journey home.

With the last volts of charge left in my phone, he snapped a quick woolard and I hit the road.

IMG_5510.JPG

With the phone on charge, I asked the satnav for a fuel stop and it took me to Runcorn ?!?

A full tank for £30

IMG_5512.JPG

And I booted it away up the road.

First impressions - it's a canny little car, suprisingly capable on the motorway and will maintain a decent speed once you give it time to get there. It's definitely got a bit of character, I think I like it.

Many thanks to Billy, it was great to meet you, I promise I will look after it :)

I've had a few days off this week so started to tinker with the little pug.

Top priority was to get a decent stereo fitted, along with a 3 ball gear nob off JakeBullet

IMG_5584.JPG

Which highlighted the lack of rear speakers, so I channelled my inner teenager and built a parcel shelf

IMG_5570.JPG

I didn't have two matching speakers in the parts pile but they are the same size and similar spec, should do the trick

IMG_5572.JPG

Proper speaker carpet and everything, looks better than the flimsy one that I took out

IMG_5577.JPG

And fitted a dealer sticker (this one has been recycled onto five cars now)

IMG_5578.JPG

While I was fancying about with the boot in bits, I found the source of the water leak which was filling the spare wheel well.

Rear light clusters off, get busy with the silicon

IMG_5574.JPG

And now I have a nice dry boot :)

With Tayne due on Saturday to pick up the roffle A2, I called my insurers to see about swapping it over : £18 less but with a £26 admin fee = £8 to pay :(

Stil, that's it road legal now, I might even take it for a drive tomorrow :)

Ha, that pool ball gear knob looks ace. The original parcel shelf is dreadful good work sacking that off.
