  1. Don't know if you can get it over there, the pest control guys at work use Ficam D powder- you need to spray it at the bastards and their nests, it'll kill the queen and larvae in short order.
  2. I have no need for this and the wife will probably castrate me for contemplating it, so on that basis, I'll take 2 randoms please.

    That is fucking grim. Well done!
  4. Just caught up with this, the old bus is looking fantastic! Got a real want for one of these now.
  5. This, though i have seen an few more since we bought it. Would love to get my hands on a Mahindra too, more for the comedy value than anything else else.
  6. And it's a pass! Surprisingly no advisories either. Might treat it to a wash and vac out now...
  7. It's mot day for the Duster. It should pass- there's fuck all wrong with it that I can see, but lurking underneath that solid Romanian body is the brie and wine soaked heart of a Renault, so god only knows what'll happen.
  8. I can do next week, this week is a bit of a pain as it's the week before half term and I'm stuck covering parents evenings all week.
  9. Well. The Mrs has been informed and she reckons that she'll "laugh like a drain" if I win and it'll be an adventure if nothing else. Nice to see that she's gotten used to my chod buying habits.
  10. Sod it, I'll take a random please. May as well terrify the neighbors in style!

    What works?

    For a change both cars are working. The duster is chugging like a bastard when cold, it needs new glow plugs and the local garage can't fit it in until mid February. (Still under a warranty) I'll get the mot done at the same time, then sell a kidney or two to get the cambelt changed. The wife's Tivoli just keeps going, even with her "spirited" approach to driving... Saying that, it's probably what's keeping the dpf clear!
  12. Boring modern alert... Mrs LabRat got pissed off of the Punto after it shat it's front suspension yet again, so has gone and bought a 15 plate Ssangyong Tivoli diesel, in bright red. It's actually surprisingly nice to drive, still solid gold future shite, mind you. She picks it up on monday, so hopefully we can limp the Punto until then! Even got £1800 trade in for the bastard, which is a solid win in my books.
