I might just fit a cheap eBay central locking kit if the lock won’t behave itself

If you're going to have a funky car, have it in a funky colour.

I'd love to know how old that pic is! It's not snowed in Doncaster this winter.

Poncing around the Hilton Gairden Inn I see...(which has nae gairden)

I haven't stayed there for a few years now. Was great when it was a City Inn. Usually end up staying in the Hotel behind me that hadn't been built at the time because they started charging for the resident's parking at the Mint.

Aye... it’s gone downhill a bit since I last stayed there a couple of years ago. Could do with a refurb.

Was cheap though so they’re maybe just undercutting the new Radisson across the road any way they can.

I used to park on the waste ground where the Radisson now is when I worked nearby. 

 

One morning I walked out and saw a lady standing starkers at a window in the Camponile hotel surveying the view.

Does this little shithouse have a timing belt or is it a chain?

Noticed what I assume is a mileage (54xxx) written in tippex on a plastic cover on the engine like people do when they change a belt

That’s what I thought too. How odd.

Yeah, it's a chain. Does the number correspond to any of the stamps in the book?

If the clutch pedal is a little high on these (& the Peugeots & aygo's), the clutch cable can be adjusted a bit, I am sure it's done from under the bonnet (I can't 100% remember, but I had to do it on one of these once) just look it up on t interweb.

WD40 Specialist Dry PTFE sorted the boot lock out a treat and made the pax door lock smoother.

Need to get the drivers door card off and investigate the non working lock there

@0ldCh0d that’s a good tip - the clutch pedal is quite high but I just assumed that’s because it’s not in its first flush of youth and clutches on these are firmly consumables.

I love the colour. It's like Primula Yellow on early Metros. These are fun little cars.
