  1. Does anyone fancy, or does anyone know, of a good person with a good price to transport the Lupo to above? Not for free obviously, buyer is paying but he’s getting quotes. Car can be driven on and off and tea can be supplied at each end. He’s possibly after a quote to Southend instead, as his dad lives there. So if anyone can quote both or recommend I’d appreciate it. His quote for Helensburgh to Southend was £900.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. That is so clean. I welded one up in 2005 and it was rotten as a peach then Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Gotta be a k series 99-2001 edition. Her dad used to work for Land Rover and always told me never ever to buy one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Just had a look but for some reason I had it in my head it was diesel. Swore I’d stay away from French petrols. Get it in Facebook for £550 mate, you’ll just have to fight through the mongs like swimming through custard Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  7. Loved this thread - got a quick question as you look like you know what youre on about. I have a mop and the last time i used it was on a red combo van. I think i used G3 and although the van came up quite well, i found it very difficult to not get g3 everywhere (including black plastics) and also i found it very difficult to get off the paint. I remember the most of the work being once the g3 stuff had dried - it took some serious hand buffing to get it glossy. Any advice? Id like to do the 307 soon but didnt want the hassle of last time
  8. obviously well behind the curve but what did you use to achieve this>?

  10. So, cutting back a few years now when i bought my current house it came witha garage - and i wanted a project for it. I really, really wanted to throw a 1.8VVC 160 from a ZR into a Metro, in fact id wanted to for years. They fit nicely and go like a stabbed rat. With the inability to find a decent shell thats how i ended up with the Lupo and retained the larger engine / small car idea. Yours looks lovely. I had a 1.4mpi for a while living in plymouth and theyre like a gokart, screaled the tyres everywhere and aside from the 'screw-in' windscreen and the bonnet wobbling when you went over 70 it was a hoot. Very jealous, theyre hard to find in three door without rotten back arches nowadays and have a decent following. Should double its money in time at least. If you want to play with it you can individualise the suspension as theyre on fluid balls. Fuel tanks throughout the range and senders should fit fine, if youre replacing the tank you could just keep the one thats in it. Think theres an access panel under the rear bench.
  11. I am a bit sad i have taken the throne as the Corsa rep lol Mine had chain failure and it wasnt worth the grief of sorting it. The o/s mount and also the sump needs to come off to remove the chain cover, then it should be a simple crank off - chain replace - guides - tension. Fair whack in labour but to be honest i think youre right on the money for a £350 mark at minimum. £700 seems excessive, ask for a breakdown? Oil in the water could only realy be a few things, ie oil cooler. Not sure it would be the HG as it would be the other way round?
