  1. It's a fucking thankless task. Who the fuck do you think sorts the photos out when you post the fuckers upside down? Hang on, it's ben that does that. Isn't it?
  2. Sell it to me really cheap. You'll feel loads better.
  3. That is gruesome although the grille would make all the bmw drivers very envious.
  4. The flat I rent from the council, '60's has only on street parking. The house gf has, 1800's, has no off street parking. The flat my mother rents off us, 70's has no off street parking but does have a garage in a block. I also have a garage in a block but 15 miles away. What ever your rule is, I'm fucked every way
  5. Just three. I'm a total amateur in the company of some proper proffessionals. '06 saab 9-5 1.9 tid sport. Gf's daily. '89 mx-5 my weekend car and bought from @motorpunkof this parish. '16 transit custom limited. My daily. They are all road legal. This is probably my normal amout but I've been known to have two hobby cars on occasion. I have no off street parking or I'd definitely have a doer upper.
  6. More exciting than having your hand down a toilet.
  7. All the best drivers fail their first test. I did anyway and I'm an amazing driver and never make any mistakes. I took my first test in my beige x reg metro 1.0 hle. Failed. I hired an instructors red f reg metro city and passed.
  8. The strut brace does exactly that. It braces against the strut towers, keeps them apart and helps to stop them flexing and stiffens the front end up. I'm not sure you'll be driving hard enough on the roads to notice the difference. I haven't noticed a difference with my roll bar anyway.
  9. Decent parking by ghia x mondeo man ffs.
  10. At lidl. Are these worth 60 quid? 14ah is massive isn't it?
  11. My new work light courtesy of @beko1987. It turns the room from dark into broad daylight. Unbelievable for the money. I joined two together and added 15m 1mm flex with a 13amp plug. What size fuse should it have?
  12. But like what haplened to @dozeydustman, you don't actually have to be touching it for it to explode.
  13. I've had this happen in about a dozen jobs. They go off like a bomb for no apparent reason. The manufacturers must know about it as they'll give me a new one no questions asked. I remember ringing my mate who is manager at the merchants and he asked me to bring it back. I said it was in a million pieces! I returned it in three builders buckets. I couple of times they've exploded while I've been lifting them and been left bleeding with two hands full of shattered glass. It gives you a fright.
  14. On the same journey there was an organised cycle race organised on the A167, another dual carriageway. It was chaos. Marshalls waving their arms about, cars down to 20mph, bikes overtking each other in the middle of the road. Cars were swerving all over th place, especially on the sliproads on and off. It'll be a miracle if there's not an accident. Why the fuck you'd risk your life doing that is beyond me never mind the inconvenience to other road users. Wankers.
  15. Just been to pick the kids up from my mothers 12 miles away. I saw a speed camera van on the A19 dual carriageway in a layby. Passed it on my way back home and you could barely see it because of the sun. A first for me and a new low for them imo.
  16. +1 for this. Our hot tub test kits come with it. https://www.amazon.co.uk/nuoshen-Strips-Chlorine-Alkalinity-Testing/dp/B07WYZNVL7/ref=sr_1_4?crid=3NRW6WJE62UVX&dchild=1&keywords=hot+tub+test+strips&qid=1601787889&sprefix=hot+tub+tes%2Caps%2C146&sr=8-4
  17. My boss had one of these in about 1990 when I was serving my time. A G reg burgundy one. The other apprentice had just passed his test so the boss gave him the keys to the D reg renault petrol traffic we had. We had to meet the boss up a back lane in Gosforth. We drove up to him as the boss got out of his sierra. We caught his door and folded against the wing. Instead of stopping he continued and gouged the whole side of the van. The gaffer was lucky not to be squashed to fuck.
  18. Watch for rust! look at the tide mark up those doors.
  19. Spread it around the garden as weed killer. Should keep the cats away as well.
  20. Was this the one with the minging interior? How did it turn out after cleaning? Have you had a quote for the chain replacement? Better the devil you know.
