  1. Urban distressed. Avec MOT https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323954039360
  2. Seriously, someone buy this its got cheaper from when he started. It’s also on retro rides and is the same chap that sold me the wife wagon, and that was *exactly* as described. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323950894134

  4. Of course it will work, how could it not?
  5. Another couple of hours trying to affix the sodding turbo drain pipe resulted in "Fuck it" .So I SEP'd it before I lost all will and reason. Send it into supertom. And it caused him some swears. An All Action Hero at work. Doesn't he look happy. He did it though, but the pipes (both of them) turned out to be twisted, so it wasn't a 5 minute job. Made me feel a bit better. 😁 And then he helped me torque the head on. I must have been looking a bit desperate! Ran out of time today but it's moving forward again.
  6. Shiny block with clean dry stud holes. Shiny new not shite gasket. 3 layer steel rather than the brown composite one found in it. And 'just popped' the head (and fannymoulds and turbot - it has a bit of weight to it) on. Hurrah. Then the difficult bit, attaching the turbo drain pipe. Down the back of the block sandwiched between the starter motor and turbo. Can't see it. It's a sod. And 2.5 hours later it started to rain and I took the hint to give up before I lost my patience. I think the drain pipe is bent as its not lining up. There is space for maybe 3 fingers and I need to hold the pipe head very hard in place, the paper gasket, the bolt, find the bolt hole and get it to bite, all uphill. You all know the score. Plan a is fresh eyes and fingers another day will sort it out. 😁
  7. I'm on it sir. I. Will. Overcome. It. Is. Inevitable.
  8. Cleany cleany with white spirit and a teethbrush Cleany cleany with flat block mounted 400 grit wet and dry with wd40 Can you guess where it was blowing? No wonder the coolant was falling out. Checked with a engineers straight edge and all looks good. 😁
  9. Right then, glory awaits. Assume the position. 1 hour in and my brand new, second hand US Pro stubby 17mm spanner is my new favourite thing. 2 hours in and rain has stopped play. Tea and chat. 3 hours in and the brief shower has settled in for a while. Race car paddock aesthetic for the win. 4 hours of lacsidasical spannering finds me finding a rusty head bolt. Hmm. and a few moments later I delicately stood on the car and birthed the head. Much better for my back. Don’t think I fucked anything. And how does it look? Blowy out the end. That’ll do it.
  10. Attn Renault lickers. Are you drawn to irreplaceable fragility? style and comfort? feeling brave? https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F323939003767 doesnt look too bad, you know, for one of them
  11. I’m not sure if I want to hate it or buy it. Not helped by the good mot history. “The head unit has been removed”. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F163890015616
  12. It was just dropped in, so at least it’s not something I’ve done wrong! When it gets there it should be good.
  13. Yep. The new* engine is pressurising the coolant under boost. To the extent that the car behind had to put on their wipers. Sometimes it just be that way. Remember, it’s not really yours until you have touched the pistons.
