  1. That's brilliant I have a vague recollection of these being sold in catalogues (Marshall Ward, Grattan etc). Or did I dream it?
  2. "LOOKS AMAING" Even the handbrake has its own handbag
  3. Please report back and let us know. I hate misting up!
  4. Customer testimonial about West Border Cars, that they definitely* didn't write themselves: "I bought a car from this dealership yesterday and I have nothing else to say except that they were professional. I visited 6 other dealerships before viewing a car here and they did everything to make me feel at ease and Have confidence with them. I had a lovely gentleman called Rob, and nothing was too much trouble for him. I’m in love with my new car and the service they provided was exceptional! I highly recommend them and if you’re looking for a genuine place to buy your next car, then you won’t be disappointed. Thanks again for such excellent and piece of mind service. Tanya"

  7. @carburettor posted this on November 14th. Surprised* it's still available
  8. Sold mine for the same price and it was 40,000 less miles and (roughly) the correct shape. I agree @cort16this is scrap
  9. Chrysler/Talbot/Peugeot/Whitley Horizon, City of Culture 2021. £1295. I like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CHRYSLER-HORIZON-1-3-GLS-1979-/165176928645?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  10. I want a proper chemist to tell me how this happens. How come nice-smelling alcohol-based screenwash and innocent H2O turns into toxic algae juice after a few years?
  11. In the end I got pretty good at dropping the tank on mine. But only because I had to do it three fucking times: - Replace feed line to filter which I thought was leaking (it wasn't) - Repair leaking tank with 'stop leak' putty and repaint - Remove and replace old tank because the 'stop leak' didn't work - Then replace the bastard filler hose with genuine Ford part because the old one had turned to jelly and no generic replacement available I sympathize because it was exactly as you describe, although this was in the summer so much more agreeable conditions to be lying on the driveway. I did take the opportunity to replace the shitty Ford captive nuts with some stainless items.
  12. I was thinking the same, I might be wrong but I don't think white was a factory colour. Good future proofing for the tipp-ex though
  13. This again? It's been up before. I thought there was a fox sitting on the roof, but: "Beaded seat cover not included"
  14. That's alright at £750 I'd say. Needs work but must be solid-ish having an MoT
