  1. White ADO16 estate SHU668G, Harvest Gold Marina 1.8SDL NYD788L, pale green metallic Talbot Solara 1.6LS RYD693W, white Metro 1.3S TYD158W and a russet brown mini that might have been DVC341T. Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  2. Grand Voyager with the VM 2.8CRD lump? Not 4WD but otherwise very capable, comfy and ours averages 32mpg... Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk

  6. bastard bastard bastard After a very frustrating week trying to source a (used) load sensing valve for the Corsa of despair, I am now faced with the issue that the brake pipes going into it seem to be bubble flared, not double flared, and at least one of the unions I wrenched from the leaky old device need replacing (threads have been crossed, and I've cut it and old flare off the end of the pipe now anyway) What sort of flaring tool do I have? Double flare only. I need a tool that makes bubble flares... Aside from the cost of many bubble flare tools (£150+), can I find anyone who stocks them in the UK, and can get one to me within 48 hours? Can I fuck. Ebay UK helpfully shows me loads of 'from the United States' listings every time I search it, each with the proud note "[email protected]@@@k - we can get it to you fast and free in 7 days!" Seven days! Come on, make a fucking effort! I'm grasping at straws here now, wondering if 'bubble flare' is a septic-only term and I should be searching for 'ISO flare' or somesuch, but that just brings me up non-vehicle related plumbing tools.... bastard, bastard, bastard

  8. If I don't shift my arse to join in with this, I know I'll regret it the rest of my days. I've started preparing already - arming myself with some vital* phrases... Pardonnez moi, monsieur/madame. M'aidez s'il vous plait? Je conduire a Le Mans mais mon POS de putain des Etats Unis a défaut de procéder avant de éclatant en flammes et détruire mes biens matériels, mon téléphone portable inclus. (if taking the Chrysler intending comfy sleeping) OR Je conduire a Le Mans mais mon belle automobile française a défaut de procéder avant de éclatant en flammes, dû sans doute à mon mécanicien britannique inepte, et détruire mes biens matériels, mon téléphone portable inclus (if attempting to live the dream by taking my XM) Peut-etre vous emmène-moi à Le Mans? There. I'm ready. Just the Eurotunnel tickets to buy now.
  9. Me and the Mrs both did our backs last weekend... (get your minds out of the gutter) emptying a lock up (ours, I hasten to add). Worst I've ever done my back - still on nurofen three days later - worried it was permanent damage - until I did the exercises in the page linked below. Honestly - made a world of a difference, immediately. https://www.healthline.com/health/pulled-muscle-in-lower-back Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  10. Them's quick, those spidders. In other news, the Corsa of Nausea has shat its handbrake cable this night. Arse. Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  11. A brilliant day out, but without you lot, it would be just another car show. Thanks all, for making it the social event of the year. Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
  12. Just 33k genuine miles? Top bombing. You know what I'm going to post... Number... etc. etc. Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk

    I'd put a car into such a scheme, if I could actually manage to have a spare car roadworthy and legal. As you can guess from the preceding sentence, I fail to achieve this with any of my three 'spare' vehicles. One day... Sent from my BV6000 using Tapatalk
