  1. Oh, yes, I’ve also been tinkering with the ex-Saabnut P38 but more on that later 😉
  2. Truthfully, I don’t know. It does pull pretty well for a 110cdi, doesn’t it? 😂
  3. As well as playing with the Vito, I’ve been prepping this little thing for sale this afternoon... I’m not putting a sale post up as I try and keep my business stock separate from my forum activities but the link is here should anyone be interested... https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F223562977339 Some shiter discount is usually available 🙂
  4. Yep, it’s handy to own a garage when you’ve got a serious shite addiction 😉 Feel bad for criticising the exhaust now...those sleeves nearly always leak though in my experience. I’m going to replace it in the morning with this one...
  5. The immediate plans are to weld the rear crossmember ready for an MOT then either attempt to repair the rear doors or indeed replace them if a pair can be sourced at a reasonable cost. Once that’s done, it’s time for some cosmetics. There’s plenty of green paint in the back to do the panels that haven’t already been done thanks to HMC. I’ve also got a pair of dark grey seats from a Saab 9-3 which will replace the rather tatty ones in the cab. The worst panel after the rear doors is the bonnet. Given that the roof is gloss black and doesn’t look at all out of place, I’m seriously considering filling and flatting it and going a bit scene with the black wrap...
  6. Finally got around to giving the ex-HMC Vito a good poke yesterday... Initial findings are very favourable. It’s had welding in the past, lots and lots of it, but it’s been done to a pretty good standard and is solid as a rock on the sills etc It does need a bit of a tickle on the rearmost crossmember but nothing too serious When driving, there’s a smell of exhaust fumes in the cab. The downpipe has fractured and been repaired with an ill fitting sleeve... ...this has now been discarded and replaced with a better quality joining piece. Apart from the odd paint overspray and rather dog eared rear doors, everything else is good...it’s obviously been well looked after in the past...the brakes are fairly new all round, the front tyres are Michelin commercials with plenty of tread and the back ones are almost new Toyo commercials. The outer sills and arches are pretty decent too...
  7. What you really need is a bright green MX5 now to show those wheels off
  8. Wheels look ok..... Not sure about black, though....thought you might have gone with silver...... 😉
  9. Having said that, I’ve already dug out a set of V class alloys and a pair of better seats for the front. Just need some carbon wrap for the bonnet and we’re all set. Scene wanker or what?!! 🤪
  10. Yep. There’s already a extensive dibs list formed but I’m happy to add you to the bottom 😉😂
  11. Drive belt roulette innit? It’s a non-interference turntable so it’ll be r8
  12. As promised.... Belting bit of kit. 0-60 degrees in just under 20 seconds on the pork pie test.
  13. Picked up a lovely one owner, low mileage Daewoo yesterday. Pics to follow....
  14. By far the best option...
  15. Not my fault if my customers bring me cars for extensive work with no bloody fuel in them..... 😂
