  2. A little over two months ago I was despatched a job to take a 92 year old lady half a mile to the shops. She'd not long lost her husband to cancer and after being double jabbed this was her first trip out alone after he passed away. She asked me about my Covid vaccine status and I told her that I'd already had Covid. Curious, she enquired how badly I was affected so I gave her the honest answer, I had a bad dry cough that lasted four days and I spent the next ten days on the sofa wondering if I was going to die. I told her that to pass the time I watched Citizen Kane and Casablanca as I felt that if I might die then I really should watch those classic films before I shuffle my mortal coil! She found this funny and she laughed all the way to the shops.Earlier today I get the same job sent to me. I vaguely remember her from before and she gets in the back of my Hyundai. During the journey, she tells me that our drivers are wonderful and always polite. She then tells me the story of her first shopping trip without her late husband. She says that she was close to tears with grief and anxiety but our driver made her laugh and smile for the first time since her husband died by telling the story of when he got Covid and whilst isolating and wondering if he was going to snuff it so spent the time on his sofa watching Citizen Kane and Casablanca as he felt that if he might die then he really should watch those classic films before its too late. Apparently, his personality and funny story helped her feel confident enough to face her first trip out alone.I really wanted to tell her that I was the driver she was talking to but thought better of it. I quite like the fact that she tells our story to every driver that takes her.I'll always remember her telling me my story and what good it did her until the day I die. This little old lady certainly made my day!

  3. About one year ago I finally decided it would be wise to purchase a fairly poor example of a rover p6 as a first car, here are my findings: After negotiating a deal on the car from a chap in Edinburgh I decided to drive the car back home to the Leeds area. In hindsight I probably should have held out for a better example, despite it being fairly non-rusty there was quite a bit wrong with the car such as ineffective brakes, rough running and various electrical gremlins. After getting the car back home I performed the usual servicing jobs and fitted an electronic ignition which seemed to sort out much of the rough running. After putting two and two together with where all the brake fluid was disappearing I got a refurbished servo fitted which made an enormous difference. (I don’t have any photos of this earlier work because I am rubbish and forgot to take any). After getting the car back up and running after it’s winter hibernation I enjoyed a brown trouser moment when my braking disappeared whilst simultaneously having a front brake start binding. After limping the car back home I found the culprit: I made some new brake lines and refurbished the front callipers which returned the stopping power to its former glory. More recently I had a minor win in fixing the bizarre vacuum operated wiper delay unit on the car. There was a small piece of sponge which was meant to push on a bit of rubber and act like a valve. The sponge had just dropped to bits and therefore part of a washing up sponge had to be sacrificed for the greater good. My most recent job has been tackling the problem of the car running rich. This required removing the carbs and inlet manifold together which took an incredibly long time as a previous owner had used copious amounts of silicone sealer between the head and the inlet manifold. After much hitting with a hammer the two parts finally came free and I was able to get the carburettors serviced. Whilst I was on here I also got the starter motor sent off to be sorted as it wasn’t working particularly well. This bring me about up to date on the car. My next tasks are painting a few body panels in the hope of making it look half decent, get the gearbox out to tackle the gear linkage bushings, locate and sort an oil leak and maybe even change the big end bearings. In summary it’s been a lot of fun but I really should have got the v8… I hope this has been interesting to someone, I will post updates of any progress I make going forward.

  5. Every time I visit Halfords in Cumbernauld I always have a truly bizarre conversation with their staff and not in a good way. Last night was the latest when I went in to buy some sticky pads to attach Mrs_Pin's plate to the Civic. I went to the counter to pay. Agent "Attaching some number plates?" Me "Yes that's right" Agent "Would you like an email receipt?" Me "Yes please" Agent "What's your email address?" Me (provides email address which has my first name in it) Agent "I've never understood why people spell Iain with two 'I's? Me (Thinking he's being a bit of a wido here) "It's because it's Gaelic for 'John'". Agent "Oh right. It's a weird language isn't it?" Me (Humouring him a bit) "Yes some of the words look downright bizarre don't they?" Agent "Can you speak Gaelic?" Me "Yes, I can". Agent "What can you say?" Me "Iain". Me "Byeeee looolll!"

  7. Two years since an update?! Jings. This is still here, I've seen it through three MOTs so far. It still looks like someone drove it through a house. Since the last update I've done absolutely loads with it as various consumable components (brakes, tyres, headgasket etc.) all wore out but so far it still provides reliable daily transport on an arduous 8 minute commute. I'll probably go into more detail in a couple of years.

  13. Wasn't entirely sure if I'd be able to make it in to the market this morning, but got up a bit earlier to sneak through the doors at 7.45. Nemesis was already there, and bagsying vast amounts of diecast. He did say hello; he probably thinks I'm a right grumpy so-and-so, and to be fair he's not wrong these days. So there were last week's Lesneys at £3, with a few additions I didn't recognise, plus a fresh batch of 50s/60s/70s/80s Corgi and Dinky at £10, which seemed a bit overpriced for most. I did type up a lengthy live report, but Chrome then decided to refresh and eat it all just as I finished, except for the first five lines - just to taunt me. With no time to re-type (and my smashed phone screen with blacked-out areas making it difficult to type anyway), I'm afraid I gave up for the day. However, here's what there was today: This Corgi Lincoln Continental limo was in good nick, and complete bar the battery cover underneath. One of the few that was worth the asking price; however it was snaffled by Nemesis. Dinky Range Rover was in excellent shape too. Land Rover also good,though missing its ladders. These messily repainted items looked somewhat less worthy of a tenner, though... Early Chevrolet Astro with red pre-Whizzwheels was a curiousity, though the engine cover hinge was broken, sadly. Rambler Marlin was one of three on the stall; the two red versions had, like so many others in this collection, been dickied-up with rally-style waterslide transfers by a former owner. The third was a two-tone silver and white version with a roofrack, and looked to be nearly pristine. Also swiped by Nemesis. I believe this one was originally part of Corgi Gift Set 10, packaged with a pair of kayaks and a trailer, and is pretty rare since it was only on sale for a few months in 1968. This Herald had some bumper issues... Mustang Fastback in silver is a rarer colour variant from its first release in 1965; the stickies aren't original here. Fiat 1800 is another unusual one - as well as being the first Italian car in the Corgi range (in 1960), it's in this odd two-tone pinky-lavender shade. According to the big Van Cleemput book, these were painted mid blue, although "also known in light tan". This one is deep purpley-lavender on the roof, and pink on the body. A quick look online shows they do exist in the shade, as well as other colour variations like mustard yellow, so I doubt it's worth squillions. Nice model, though. Mod-ified Imp (ho ho) would probably display ok with the stickers off - and, crucially, at half the price. No real change to the Lesney boxes from last week - a few gone, but mostly the same items. There was a solitary 1/36 Corgi there, too - a French-market Pug 505 fire chief car. Very good condition, but do I really need a third variant of this casting...? Probably not. Not sure who makes this RM model, or even if it's that old, but it's huge at about 18" long. There was also some Days Gone stuff kicking around, but no-one's here for that, are they? So that was about it... nothing really on the other stalls, apart from this big (1/12?) Tamiya Renault F1 car on the Charity Stall. I did come away with a couple of Lesneys, but again couldn't shake the feeling that the only stuff really worth the money had already been snaffled before I managed to get through the door. If anyone's keen on the red-hub Ford GT, Ferrari Berlinetta, or Austin A55 Cambridge, they're all available at the £3 paid. **BERLINETTA SOLD!!** I've come back and re-edited this from yesterday with less of a humpy-head on: I can appreciate that the original post might have come across as needlessly abrupt, and can only apologise. I'd really wanted to put together an upbeat market report and I think I had; so while losing half an hour's work might not seem that bad in the grand scheme of things, on top of a disastrous few weeks at work and at home where it seems I can do absolutely nothing right, the mobile browser fail kinda felt like another boot in the nads just when I needed it least. But anyway. Ups and downs, hey? Cheers to everyone who PM'd me, I'm not in an unmanageable funk; just a bit down in the dumps. (Which is something of a misnomer as a turn of phrase, since I loved going to the dump as a kid, ditto scrapyards - in fact, they were probably the places I was happiest.) So! Better things to come? Here's hoping. Til next week!

  14. Rear engined Volvo? @Lacquer Peel was on hand to bag and label parts and basically take over whenever bolts got stuck / inaccessible or I started dying in the heat. We had a very lucky escape with this head bolt, which came out with about 1mm of metal holding it together. I barely touched it and it fell apart. Bags o' pistons. It's hard to tell with it out, but #1 is definitely distorted. And here just under the wrist pin looks like where it has been catching the crank counterweight. Everything else looks good.. valves, bearings and cylinders. So I'll replace / upgrade the connecting rods and rebuild it.

  16. The biggest tip I can give is pay someone to do it, but if you can't afford it, buy a tent and do it 😂 Good stuff! I was quite impressed with my panel, so hopefully it does the job for you _ So, I've got an arch, and it's all welded! As you can see, I tried my best but the original panel still distorted. Not as bad as the passenger side, but fairly annoying. Not as annoying at what happened to my finger. Don't know how, but a bit of weld fell on to my ring and Christ it hurt. Took my ring off and revealed this boo boo. That's my Dad's ring and it's been on that finger since the day he died practically and it's never been off. Not even for rugby, but a stray weld splatter means I've got to take it off for a bit. Other than a slither of welding to do on the passenger side, and a bit of an amendment to some welding on the sill (all of which is about half an hour to an hour's worth of work) - ALLLLLLLL THE WELDING HAS BEEN DONE. Tomorrow will be a day of going deaf with grinding down some of the welds, then cleaning the underside for a day of red oxide primer paint for Sunday. Hopefully!

  17. Although Boris has a 1275 engine he is still running his original baby carb and pea shooter exhaust. The plan is to fit this bigger and better flowing Marina/Ital manifold. I know the engine is an Ivor Serle reconditioned unit and looking down the inlet ports the machined profile doesn't look like any A series i can remember. It also has the later one piece rockers fitted too. Annoyingly lack of use and condensation has left a some rusty spots on things. I am going to email Ivor Serle with the engine number and see if they can tell what the spec the engine has. The Marina/Ital manifold fits fine but its matching twin down pipe needs to be radically altered to swing around 90 degrees to pass through the hole in the chassis leg like the Minor one does. It needs to end up looking like this one. I have noticed that on some of the 1275cc engines the breather canister is mounted on the timing chain cover and so fouls the Minors fan. The recognised mod/bodge seems to be to slice it length ways,throw half of it away and weld it back up again. The chassis legs and front box section are all in good order except for this bit. I'm not sure whats happened here its like a tear/cut but it'll be easy to make it good again.

  20. Not a huge amount achieved today, though I did tidy* up a bit of the shed (I moved shite around) and changed the order the cars are parked. Today was that rarest of rare days, warm and sunny in the North East of Scotland and despite having loads to do, nothing with a pressing deadline. Decided to take the Cobra to fetch milk from my local shop 4 miles away. Thought I would take the scenic route over the hills, and arrived home about 3 and a half hours later with my milk, having covered 147 miles. Must resist a repeat tomorrow as I have a lot to do, but a test run in the Sonett is looking more appealing.....

  23. After a downright epic amount of faffing around because of people changing their minds about how they felt over the potential risk factors of travelling over the weekend we've come to a compromise and things are now actually organised. Hotel is booked, and I've specifically gone for the non-refundable option because it eliminates the potential for any more moving of the goalposts. Will be dropping the Xantia off at her new home tomorrow evening. Really feel bad that I won't have the opportunity to give the car a proper valet beforehand as I always like to do. Just know I won't have time. We'll be leaving early Saturday morning, hopefully back by dinner time on Sunday. A while ago I was kindly donated a set of stainless steel Mercedes wheel trims planned to go on the van, but as the wheels are too deeply dished they didn't fit. So they got stuffed into the garage and got forgotten about. Until someone asked me if I still had them...cue some properly precarious rummaging in the garage. First three were fairly easily found and were more or less where I remembered them being. Once I actually got *to* them extraction was easy enough. The fourth one eluded me for a good fifteen or twenty minutes until I spotted where it was hiding. What on *earth* was going through my tiny mind when I put that there?!? Even more so, why the heck didn't I move it when I stuck that insulation panel there (which I then buried in acrylic lighting diffusers). Thankfully I just managed to slip it out without too badly disturbing the structural integrity of the stack. Success, all four trims extracted and ready to be passed on to actually be used by someone rather than gathering dust in my garage. Will need to get into that mountain of junk tomorrow anyway as I want to extract the various Xantia specific parts tomorrow so they can go with the car...no point in me holding on to them, though I'll keep hold of a stock of LHM and the flushing oil. Be nice to actually get a bit of stuff out of the garage for a change!

  24. Well I've finished the battered Mercury that was donated to my pile of jobs to do by Dick Longbridge a few months back. It looked like it'd escaped the oval following a horrific roll... ...but the roof straightened out surprisingly well, new glass was available, and some wheels from Bunglebus finished the job off... ...I'm really chuffed with that and I've thoroughly enjoyed doing it. Next, I'm moving on to this Escort which I 'customised' when I was about 10 years old... ...it's in a bad way though. Bent roof, cracked pillars, butchered rivets and sitting on a Corgi Rockets chassis (held together with Bluetac).

  27. Nah, it's just got worse over the last few days too and it's now pretty random when it wants to work or not. Found a new old stock one for £28 posted to me though so I got that - probably quite hard to find an unused one so that'll do nicely! Did an Ikea run the other day: And also picked up a massive new desk for my home PC setup from a Coach company/yard - no pics of it but a nice boot open picture: The seats have been down 24/7 since I moved up here 6 weeks or so ago, it may as well be a van at this point! It swallows anything I put in it. If it doesn't - it goes on top of it. It's disgustingly filthy too, my other half got me a beautiful Karcher pressure washer with all the gubbins and foam lance ect for my Birthday though and I just got a hose reel from Screwfix this evening hopefully I'll give it a nice clean soon - it needs & deserves it!

    Went for 5 145 80 R13’s in the end. Wheels off ready to go to powder coating. Had my first proper nose round underneath. Brake hoses all shot 1 outer CV gaiter split 1 inner CV to diff seal leaking gearbox transfer case gasket leaking 1 hole found NSF inner wing, easy fix with wing off. Very good really. The only concerning bit was the expansion tank is nearly empty and I can see glycol around one of the downwards facing core plugs. No mayonnaise on the oil cap or in the expansion tank it may simply have evaporated. Rad not wet. I’ll fill it and run it up.

    The new news 24 thread

    I ran the Innocenti round to a mate's last night so he could give me a hand trying to get the brakes bled (he's quite good with brakes, unlike me). It was the first time it's been further than the local Tesco in over a year. It made it there and back fine but had a bit of a misfire under load at low revs sometimes, so I might treat it to a set of plugs and leads. Clutch is also still slipping like a twat, but I want to get it back on the road first before I tackle that. I also lost one of the exhaust clamps off my "new" cobbled together system - it was a clamp that I'd had laying around for years and one of the threaded ends snapped, which sometimes happens with cheap clamps - the fact that I'd hit a pheasant a few minutes earlier might have had something to do with it as well. We had a bit of a kerfuffle getting anything to come through the rear flexis, but we got there in the end and it now has four working brakes and the pedal is a lot closer to where it should be. The handbrake is still sticking on the driver's side though and it seems like it might be the mechanism inside the drum, so I'll be taking the car back round there at some point so we can get his puller on the drum and also for him to do the bit of welding on the rear inner arch. Once that's done it should be as ready for a test as it will ever be - I just hope it doesn't fail on some random unobtainium suspension bush or something...

  32. Oh look another oil change. Suspension set to high. Then I worked really quickly because I didn't put any axle stands under it. DON'T FOLLOW MY EXAMPLE! I VERY BAD PERSON. The oil was suspiciously black and the filter was definitely older than 6 month-old oil. I doubt any new oil was put in it after the sump was pulled and cleaned, as in, the old oil was drained and dumped straight back in when all was said and done. The (incredibly tight) filter was also much larger than what's supposed to be on there, alas I didn't take any pictures of it. The new one fitted much better. This is the new oil. Citroen recommends only two weights: 10W-40 or 15W-40 for all-year use, so I went with the latter. Bunged 3.2L in, let engine build pressure, drove it about, came back, topped up until full. Job jobbed. No suspicious leaks or anything left on the floor after the car was driven out. Excellent. Now, what to do with all this oil? We separated it into the different grades: And then decanted the separate grades into the containers with the least oil in them. Through doing this I don't need to buy any extra oil for the Micra! Winning already. The only odd one out we had was this 5W-40 semi synth oil which we couldn't combine with anything, so instead I'll use it with the bar and chain oil I bought to undercoat the BX.

    A surprise box arrived. A gift of reversing lights! Proper guide ones, for the car. A bit fusty with the old, burned out 6V bulbs in still. Cleaned them up. A comparison between the correct ones and the ones that were fitted. Those look better. Nice and bright, too. They need new foam rubber bases made up because the Chevrolet ones they came with make them sit at a goofy angle. Phil

  36. A week has passed since my last update and a lot has happened. First the Enima covered just under a thousand miles to the FOD and back (480 miles door to field) and behaved perfectly, even the starter rarely failed to engage first try. A nice bonus was the expected 22-24mpg became 31mpg on the way home, fill to fill, so happy with that. A good run seems to have done it good. Returning home the next day from fetching milk and I had to wait for these to get out of the way, from the size of the chicks I think it was their first outing Next was back on to the Saab. A tidy up of the welds and some seem sealer had it looking like this A bit of exhaust paste around the weld and a completely genuine* Saab exhaust mount had that job crossed off. As soon as a replacement is available it will be done With those jobs done, the handbrake was adjusted, washers/wipers/lights etc checked and it is now ready for the man from the ministry. The plan is to use it to tow the Sonett down to Prescott Hill Climb for Saabfest at the end of the month. Talking of which.... Having found out from the PO that it was a Petronix unit, I phoned them and they were most helpful, and a new unit was ex stock. Including VAT, carriage and a trade discount it came to £208. Ordered Wednesday afternoon, it arrived Thursday morning, fantastic service. Malc came over this afternoon and he did all sorts of black magic and a couple of hours later he said to give it a try. Started first turn, let it warm up and the dynamic timing set. It now runs as well as it ever has in my ownership and it sounds superb. Had a look at the removed electronic igniter and where I thought a bit of silicon had been applied to waterproof it, it turns out the wire had broken, the case had been cut with a hacksaw to get access to solder it, and when that failed the wire had been stuck in place with silicon acting as glue. How it ever ran I am unsure.

  40. Guys guys guys guys! I've an arch! Nearly. I've got to do the rear part, that shouldn't be a big issue. But tomorrow the new panel will be in place! Can't begin to say how much easier it is when you don't have a fuel filler neck to account for, but there we are. Have also made the decision that, unless something mental happens, the trailing arms aren't going to be touched. I think I'm asking for trouble trying to free it from the suspension links and shock absorber. They'll need replacing at some point, but for now it'll do especially as they weren't a problem before the MOT. Plus it's edging closer to August and I really need to crack on with doing bits on the house for the wife and the future ruler of the world to be. And, to top it all off - I'm sunburnt to fuck.

  41. I don't disagree. This is all an educational exercise. The more Pat and I do, the clearer it is becoming to both of us and we want to understand what was done before us so if we encounter this sort of thing in the future, we'll be slightly better prepared to figure it out. Might seem a little bit strange unpicking non-original work this way, but we're regarding it as an educational opportunity. The more we understand as we put theory into practice, the more we can see how simple a job this is and the more confident we're getting. When it's all done we should be able to look back on it and know just how to pull it all out and chuck the new harness in. Bear with us while we plod along, I know it's probably frustrating reading/viewing for folks that know what they're doing, this is just where we're starting as absolute beginners and trying to learn as much as possible about the way the car was maintained before us. Sort of like how you study paintings to understand an artist's technique, but with bodges instead of brush strokes.

  43. This is the story of a 1919 Federal truck that was in use until 1966 in Norway. It has a 54 hp engine with only a hand crank starting, a 4-speed gearbox and only brakes on the rear wheels. And originally it had solid rubber tires and then had 4 tons of load capacity when it got air tires the load capacity was lowered to 3 tons. It had 3 owners in its working life and Andres Hagen bought it in 1927 and used it until 1966 when he retired and he died in 1967. He used it to deliver bricks in Oslo which were loaded on and off by hand 51 kg at a time all year round in all weathers and it never had a roff in his ownership so he drove open all year he also took care of all maintenance and repairs on it. It still exists and is now in a museum in Oslo. Unfortunately I do not find many pictures of this and none are old so this is just one picture.
