    Bought a new computer chair off eBay yesterday evening; the old one has suffered from having my fat arse on it for so long, the hydraulic ram thing is knackered and the leather* is split.
    Found a replacement, paid my money - it was cheap, but advertised as "seller refurbished" - no box, he had loads of them. New seller, zero feedback.
    Opened up my inbox:

    Fleet Update:
    Junior's Focus is now bean cans. It started making noises (sounded like brakes) and he just threw the towel in. The old thing had done well, but he wasn't prepared to chuck any more ££££ at it, with the prospect of more later. He's now got a Mondeo Estate ( as detailed in news 24 thread), I'll add a picture when I edit this.
    However, it's not been plain sailing; Good Friday it decided that it would shit it's starter motor in Sainsbury's Colchester, full of kids and an incontinent bulldog, I got the call to tow him back to the caravan, thankfully short distance, but the weather was shit and they'd shut a couple of roads by the Tollgate Retail park, so it turned into more of a ballache than it should have done.
    I drove back up on the Saturday morning, and tried the age old remedy* of twatting it with things, but to no avail; you just can't get a decent swing at it, there's too many covers and shizz in the way. Rang Halfords (Kwik Fit said no thanks) and tow started it, and left it there. Was done by mid afternoon Bank Holday Monday for about £250, which could have been worse.
    Miss_Outlaw's Fiesta isn't getting used as she's working from home, but she brought it round a few weeks ago as there was a LOT of mould growing on the seats, carpets etc. She'd taken it in for a bit of welding for the MoT, and I reckon the carpet started smoking and they've chucked a bottle of water in and not told her. Then, the car turned into a micro biosphere and started to cultivate life. I attacked everywhere with Cillit Bang mould remover, let it sit for a while, then Car Plan upholstery cleaner, then my Bissell spot cleaner. Came up lovely - no photos as I was too busy trying not to get foot and mouth or something.
    Capri : Still unable to access, however Junior is looking at houses, so hopefully he'll find somewhere, and I can get my garage back.
    Kia: Still being an car. Weirdness with the seatbelt warning thing, intermittently beeps for no apparent reason. Unplugging and replugging the buckle will stop it; I've squirted some contact cleaner stuff in the hole, and it hasn't done it since, so I call that fixed. Changed a bulb...errr......oh, replaced the aged and cracking Winglong Happyday Ditchfinders on the back for some Falkens @ £60 a corner. That's it.
     
    Megamoose. Over the last couple of years, with increasing regularity, the car has tried to eat me while I top up windscreen fluid or check the oil or whatever. The bonnet struts were still original, so they've not done badly. So armed with a broom I set about replacement. The collar on the top of the strut was caked in goo, and took a bit of prising off, purely because i couldn't find an edge. Once I'd popped it off, it was plain sailing, and I was happy. But WAIT!!! What's thatnestling by the brake fluid reservoir and the expansion tank??
    You dozy twat.
    It's the cap off the back of the headlight that I'd forgotten to replace when I bunged a new bulb in about 2 months ago. Anyhoo, this really will be a piece of cake. Releasing the headlight unit is sooooo easy on these, see the two metal tag things on top? Pull them out and the headlight is released. Screw cap thing back on, bung headlight back in place, replace metal rod things. Sorted.
    I then got my jet washer out and treated the engine bay to a quick blast. Much better.

    I love the brushed nylon seats in these, I’ve got a brochure somewhere with samples of the cloth, I ‘ve had it since I was a child and was very impressed with it, and still am.

    The subheading mentions a Series 1 Prestige (long-wheelbase), so there will be some parts I definitely can't use. @Shite Ron does have a Series 1 non-Prestige.
    It might have been helpful to have a general photo of this shed of spares, though.... At the moment, everyone viewing the auction is completely blind. Have sent the seller a message anyway.....
