  1. The spirit of Dave_numbers lives on... Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  2. No go for me too, I'm afraid. I'll either be at work or on my way to work. Soz Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  3. That is a charming vehicle. Much want. Here's hoping it stays in one piece. Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  4. Moar pleez. Would very much like to hear about the Avantime. Some of my trials with a Vel Satis are documented on the beige pages, but it's first party trick within minutes of my picking it up, was to leak so much oil from the turbo return pipe onto the exhaust manifold that I had to choose between choking to death on the smoke pulled in through the demister vents, or have the hvac switched off altogether and, through zero visibility, crash into something in one of Wakefield's signature rainstorms. Mrs CW, who had given me a lift to buy this French catastrophe, sought refuge in her own properly functioning car and googled 'solicitors specialising in divorce'. Amazingly, I resisted the temptation to kill the Vel Satis with fire, as indeed have several of this parish who have been its subsequent owners. Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  5. Sorry to hear this Doctor. Do what you can. They don't have any expectations of you, they just have to get through the next day, then the next, then the next. Try to help them do that. And be there to listen to your Dad especially. He may come out with some stuff that hurts, but he has a big hole inside and no one can tell him how to fill it. Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  6. Having gone through the induction process for one of the other 'race to the bottom' courier operations, I can confirm that in response to the rep they got for non delivery/damaged goods/outright theft, the procedures imposed on drivers are stringent, and a bit ridiculous in parts.

  7. A 500quid 'and that's just for starters' labour bill is a strong and totally justified motivator IMO. A mate claims his preferred MO for exhaust removal is as follows - strafe the underside with a 50calibre weapon before you start... Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  8. Re: the length of extension cables you deployed for the powahhh tools: that's one way of contributing to climate improvement... I'm sure the GGG are proud of you! Following this fred with a mix of pity and deep respect. Don't let the bastard grind you down - you're almost there. Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  9. I think that was top gear - Clarkson also met a guy that made brake fluid out of rum and toenail clippings or something Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  10. +1 for Mk3 Astra lurv, especially the estates. I had an L reg one from new with the 1.7TD engine (and natty 'intercooler' badging) that was just epic - always delivered 600 miles or more to a tank, irrespective of how I drove it. And I ragged the thing everywhere for 220,000 miles by the time its lease was up - a brilliant workhorse. I'm interested to know how you get on with the 1.8(?) pez engine. Nice colour, too. Please keep it from the bridge - I cannot remember the last time I saw one, and that is a huge shame - iirc they were one of Vauxhall's biggest sellers.
  11. There isn't enough popcorn in the world for this....
  12. This is of no help but, is it possible that a PO was gearing up for just this job by fitting 'gooner 2 disks? As ever, best of luck with the Achilles' parking brake
  13. In daily use too... ETA the roofrack holds no pineapples, or anything else. Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  14. ^ Sorry, I have to disagree on that point. THIS is the world's most fucked Rover. Though, granted, it still has its wheels... Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
