    Sam Glovers one?.
     
    As my minds been on doom and gloom things today i decided to paint my Cortinas rear seats to take my mind of them, Here's some refresher photos from before.
     

     
    and after graffiti remover and pressure washing.
     

     
    Better but miles from perfect, I dropped my front seats off at the trimmers recently and they recommended a local company who sell very good vinyl paint in any colour, they are called http://shop.bradleysmart.co.uk/ by the way, a expensive £66 later i had 5 cans of colour matched paint and a bottle of Plasticprep.
     

     
    i gave them a good wipe over with the prep which makes the vinyl tacky and also wiped them with a tack rag as it's all in the prep!
     
    I'm very pleased with the results, I am slightly concerned that the colour might be slightly grey but I have enough paint to do the door cards if needs be and i still need to do the front seats once i get them back, the paint is fantastic, it's not sticky or tacky in anyway, I just hope it's as long lasting as they say it is.

    Back home visiting my folks. Noticed some quality chod knocking about the place! Warning - these photos contain no flash photography
    This Jaguar had an Anderson Cars sticker on the back window. They used to be the Renault main stealers in Aberdeen who were given to charging outrageous prices - the boy is probably still paying this off ....
    Barried up Arse Turbo Talbot Autosleeper I believe. Definitely my best spot! Great colour! a very late CF

    I've started tackling the important jobs on the Volvo. I've got all the switches lighting up and removed the stick-on plastic Aluminium* from the dashboard. A previous owner spent something like £50 on that.
     

     

     
    The bonnet safety catch was operated by a bit of bent welding rod so I got the mechanism from an early S70 at Upullit for £3. It didn't fit. I dropped into a proper old-school scrappie in Aberdeen when I was passing and got the right mechanism for £0.00. He doesn't seem to charge for small stuff.

    Summons up prayer to St Isopon
     
    May thy grace still the flakes of rust,
    And smite the tester with a hammer of toffee,
    Make my underseal stout in the face of any screwdriver
    And keep my pizza boxes in the position intended by the father.
    Amen
     
     
    Good luck!

    I just found the owner of the X-Pack Capri my dad built in the 80's. Made contact about 4 years a go then lost touch again, have just tracked him down and am waiting oh so impatiently for a reply. 


     
    I'm gonna do literally everything I can to get it back on the drive.

    Essex V6 got a reaction from overrun in Kylie the RS1600i - 11/09/14 Off to pastures new   
    Out of the many dozens of cars that have passed through my hands, my RS1600i would have to be one of my favourites. A33PAS in Diamond White. Swapped a Capri 2.8i for it. Highlights were those seats and the way it used to corner flat!

    Essex V6 reacted to nacho man in Claim's Cabbies Corner. UPDATE SOON   
    My ex's dad was a cabbie, he only worked daytimes taking old grannies shopping etc etc.
     
    He had a xantia 1.8 pez, he didnt rack up mega miles and he had it a few good years but in the end the headgasket went and he carried on driving as he was on a job till it was propely goosed.
     
    Got a vectra dizzler 07 plate as a replacement, a service was me changing the oil for him, not the filter it didnt need it according to this plonker, I tried my hardest to convince him to spend a little more to look after it but he just wouldnt.
     
    Glad I dont have to deal with him no more, he used to brag about women offering to pay for fares in "other ways"
     
    Used to make me laugh as he was a old fat git with heart probs, and some old bint offering to sort him out would deffo ended with him in A and E with health complications.
