  1. You deserve some kind of award Bo11. Pulling all that stuff off can't have been fun, although I guess the end result is satisfying. It amazes me too how quickly 'modern' tech like live diagnostics have filtered down to the DIYer. Your prose makes for excellent reading, it's great to have your antics back.
  2. Wow, I've taken a few evenings to catch up with this, what a great thread, loads of variety in there, although I'm sure you could do without some of it! I think you're doing all of your fleet justice but particularly the camper, one's off that era still on the road seem to go year after year without even a wash, let alone the attention you're giving yours, it looks great for it.
  3. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F383142339751 This must have popped up on this threada while ago, eBay have suggested I might want to look again, as it's been the subject of a £1250 price drop! It's still too much in my opinion but getting closer.
  4. Good luck, although I don't think the Matiz will give you any problems, it looks a good buy.
  5. Tow it home with a tow pole for maximum brownie points. It's an odd concept to get my head around that it was built in a country that no longer exists!
  6. Looks like 'Sting' to me...
  7. This thread rolls along nicely, keep it up!
  8. My first thought was what Timewaster said! Even just driving that down to the shops makes you a winner in my book.
  9. I'm not sure how I've missed this before. Good work on the Panda, I reckon most would have just stripped it for spares, which would have been a shame. Props for dailying the 45, I can't remember the last time I saw a MK1 Panda on the road, probably the late '80's! Fergie, as in Ferguson tractor? Tell us more please.
  10. Watching with interest, good luck, that's a fair trip!
  11. I would call that a result, nice one.
  12. Great writing! It's a shame you had to have so much time wasted to come up with such a good thread. You're definitely right about the colours, that looks good in red, mooar please.
  13. I clicked on that because I was interested to see what it looks like in real life, as opposed to 'narrow-screen'. Not much different is the answer. I'm guessing the seller thinks it's going to go for a huge fortune, it would probably help his cause if he could be bothered to post a few more pics, there are three, repeated.
  14. LDV is great, although despite the low mileage it's getting ready for a steering box, I was spoilt be the rack and pinion on the Talbot! Result on the manifold, that jig is a masterpiece of lateral thinking, I reckon I would have taken the head off!
