    This has moved for the first time since end of October, a few 1/4 mile trips for firewood.
    Started instantly, brakes still free, bone dry inside, all working perfectly.  Moderns are amazing!

    I now have rear gingercators! Thanks to @vulgalour for suggesting the Tamiya paint. It has worked perfectly. 
    Reversing lights are also orange with LED (Gu10 lamps) driven via diodes in parallel with the indicators for extra visibility.

    This is in Gloucester.  Just not the Gloucester 25 miles away.  All good to go for about £5k, plus the drive home... Want!

    Some things are just as desirable even when broken. ULEZ loophole?

    Slightly disappointed to see your Reliant has more wheels than neccessary. Should still be nice and frightening however.

    Some have said my 2016 Range Rover is not suitable copy for this forum, the MOT man said you are wrong! 4 years 8 months and 41,307  miles and the rear brake pipes are dangerous.

    Storm Christof killed another bit of our fence but it couldn't put water in the front of the Maestro.  I might be able to put the carpets and sound deadening back in soon!  There was barely any water in the boot either, so I think I must be getting close to solving this water ingress issue now.  I wonder if it's that the Arbomast sealant has just sort of settled into wherever the voids were and whatever water was still stuck in the car has finally all drained out.
    One unfortunate thing has happened with the Maestro which is that I'm actually really enjoying driving it about and tinkering with it and I've gone and got attached which was very much not the plan.  I expected the Maestro to feel like the 414 in that I'd be bored of it by now and want to change things, but I don't.  Maybe that will change when the nicer weather comes along, or it presents the first real problem.  That said, this Maestro has all the things I liked about my Ledbury and none of the things I didn't, so maybe it's just that it's the right car for me?

    Quick update on this, not a lot is happening TBH mainly due to abysmal weather and also all my spare time is being used up renovating the bathroom in my house. Thats nearly finished though thankfully.
    One bit of actual news is that the truck is now back on its wheels, sitting on springs that give more or less the right ride height.
    I took the 'new' springs to Midland Motor springs in Notts and asked them to increase the camber from 3.5" to 5.5". They did that, charging me £150 for the job.  I then brought the springs home and waited till @cobblers was really desperate for his axle stands back, before I fitted em in the pissing rain, almost squashing my leg to f*** under the axle while i was on. To my huge relief they look much more like it, a decent few inches of clearance between the tyre and the arch, and some decent curvature remaining in the springs under static load. I've still got quite a lot of bongo car mags in the back as well although I have got rid of about half of the full stash so far.
    Then in the best news of the whole friggin story, my credit card dispute was concluded in my favour and I got the full £400 refunded onto my credit card last night! So fucking chew on that Owen Springs!!!!
    Anyway I'm gonna spend some of that on a few new door seals & other bits from Rock Auto, plus a couple of new rear axle bump stops and valve extensions & whatnot. Still have to change the screen too, I am gonna call in an offer of help from @Ian_Fearn on that if we ever get out of friggin lockdown. Cheers!

    Asimo reacted to Spurious in Audi 100 Diary. Adventure time   
    It's been a very long time since I've updated this. 
    Life had invariably got in the way. I'd take the Audi out for a spin every once in a while just to keep it ticking over. 
    I also got covid in November which had me floored for a couple of weeks and then Christmas and paramedic-ing has been increasingly busy in the past weeks. 
    But time goes on right? So what have I done? Not a lot really. Washer fluid? Not much more besides that.  The weather is rubbish and I can't be arsed sitting under a car in the snow. 
    Had an "oh bollocks" moment today. Took it out for a good spin, work had arranged for a vaccination but it was in Preston. I'd been avoiding the gritting/salt on the road weather so wasn't bothered about rain. 
    All going well until the blown bulb warning lights up. Pulled over at services and found the headlight was injured and had a stone blow out the lens completely. 
    I've sourced a spare off the nice folk on the classic Audi page. And it turns out it was a Nylock nut, glad it didn't hit the windscreen cos that would have been the expensive thing to replace. 
    It blew one of the nearly new Osram Nighbreakers too. That's a bit rubbish only had them in 3 months or so.

    Not a minor detail at all, a major and expensive bit of engineering.
    Before you can get someone to weld-up* your two ends of previously unrelated drive shaft, you have to work out EXACTLY how long the finished assembly has to be which is not a trivial task.
    **Precision, max-strength welding too,  in some sort of rotary jig.
     
    Anyway, here is that massive estate you wanted. 4.2 straight six* and live-axle.

    These MG schemes are trying too hard and missing the point a bit. The important thing with an MG saloon is that it is different from the cheaper, cooking Morris or Austin version in NO significant way. Only the badge and price are different.
    I had one of these. So sporty it didn’t even have a tachometer.

    I've driven and owned A series cars, and VW 1.4 engined cars, and you know what, the A series is in every way a better engine than that shit-awful VW thing.
    I like the idea of an engine swap, but all that work just to make an Allegro worse than before you started?
