Champion fix, Did the mobs mech have to swear and curse much or is it just one of those 'simple but time consuming dismantle lots to get at small part' type jobs ?

It was one of those jobs that looks ok once you see someone do it who knows what the fuck they are doing. I think I would tackle it if ever needed again.

Here is the offending pipe, looks like chewed licorice allsort combined with dead sea slug. Yuck is the mildest way of describing it. I think we found the problem!

 

DSCN1854_zpsjc7drots.jpg

 

The end of the pipe slug allsort is still attached to the old CCV. Ewwwww.

Blue silicon hoses are for winnahs, especially smoll silicone hoses.

 

DSCN1856_zpsxhmngwra.jpg

 

 

Much nicer photographs. These were taken when I had just dusted the car off and before it was fixed.

 

We know what that is....

The interior needs a good vacuuming and a bit more of a valet after that on the carpets, nothing significant at all, just dusty and so on.

 

The passenger front door panel needs a beige speaker cover obtaining and fitting. There is some wear on the centre arm rest but a bloke on fb has one for sale much cheep. There are marks and scuffs on the door cards that might not be visible on the photos.

 

The bodywork is bloody lovely and a good wash and polish will make it gorgeous. 

 

There is a slight crease on the rear O/S wheel arch but it certainly isn't horrible.

 

DSCN1848_zpsmb7uucj3.jpg

 

The boot area is nice and clean, the load area cover is in great order and there is a clip on mesh thing in place. 

 

There is a full tool kit and the locking wheel nut is present and correct.

Worth every second of the wait for full pictures, it looks an absolute peach! Gorgeous interior too!

There’s a very good MOT place in Chelmsford, Universal Tyres, fair and friendly and lots of old shite often parked outside.

Will take a random please!

It's a cracking car mate but I do need to move it on. 

 

I can't really justify it mate and it needs to be used not just sat there like a lovely blue automotive ornament.

Coorrrr, that is nice. I really want to make an offer but I'm so barrassic at the moment I can barely afford a pint of milk let alone another motor. That would be so nice for me though.

Anyway, what is this mythical 'grand' you speak of?

 

I am unfamiliar with the monetary concept of such an amount. I think I may have to go and lie down as I feel faint and weak at the mere thought of such a concept. 

 

Mo, if I could gift it to you mate I would.
