  1. If there is no point, I abandon them, and would fully back any decision you make. I don't see that turning it into a GTi or whatever, is a bad step. Many may disagree, but would they repair it?
  2. Mrs JJ needs this. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/224629034509?hash=item344cef0e0d:g:crMAAOSwMNlhVU7~
  3. Small Yaris update. Much time has been spent, but little to show for it. Roll cage needs fully welding by person more competent than me, who will do a good job as his wife and daughter may propel it. Door bars and skins ready to fit. Loom has gone for modification. Seat belts should be here next week. By the time I return from my hols it may look like a car. Going to be painted all black it's said, wouldn't be my choice, but it will have coloured sticky bits on I suppose. Be ready before start of season in March, probably have built another by then as well.
  4. Not often I disagree with you But that's absolute rubbish. Your body is no shield to someone slightly to one side, or in a kiddies bedroom. You can tell people not to watch, and they still do. It's like 'wet paint, do not touch'.
  5. Arc eye can blind you for days, possibly a lot longer, and is very, very painful. People watching think "look at those pretty sparklers" Until the day after.
  6. Now I know you don't work for Halfords, but there were 12 people checking that when I looked.
  7. It's a difficult thing to explain, but I think what you are saying about the seat belt is what they actually do. We always had problems with belts on a rear facing seat in the van. Once we got it something like, we left it there. Forward facing seat is not as bad to set up. Have you got all the slots and clips in the right place?
  8. Been building them for years. Had problems with the early ones, but seems he's got them sorted now. Clever bloke Tim Dutton. Took the Ford motor company on about the the Sierra name, and didn't lose.
  9. It can't be that good, it rarely does 20 miles a week.
  10. Man logic would be to turn it over and sit down again.
  11. If you leave it there long enough it will be brown.
  12. Ask for a reduction because they have been using it as a shelf. It worth 4 figures in anyone's book. Not sure of the first number, but won't be hard to check.
  13. It's fine Eddy, we get it. If your sister has a book that your wife wants to read, you are perfectly entitled to collect it for her, and you wiil need a rest and refreshments at her end after your trip. It's all doable with thought and preparation.
  14. VED may come into it if they decided to prosecute, but the contract is between the disabled person and Motability. It's a while since I read a contract, but basically the vehicle is for the use of the disabled person, and can be driven by a person named on the Motability insurance, but only for a purpose which benefit's the disabled person. It could possibly be argued that going to work and taking grand kids benefits your SiL Bird watching I'm not so sure. https://www.motability.co.uk/about/how-the-scheme-works/how-your-vehicle-can-be-used/
  15. There have been problems in the past with people using them outside of the agreement rules. But as you say If Eddy was collecting a newspaper/knitting wool/ packet of crisps for his wife he is perfectly within the law.
  16. Only if for the disabled persons benefit. If you have an accident whilst alone in the car, questions may be asked. However if Eddie was collecting something that his wife needed, or wanted from Eddies sister... Anytime you are alone in the car Eddie, always have a reason that can be confirmed by someone else, (your wife will do) before you set off. Edit, My late wife had an insatiable urge to buy Ghia wheels on ebay to give to my son for his birthday at one time. Can you pick these up from...............please?
  17. They fitted them on Minors at some time or other. Worth about 10 bob!
  18. Let me know, Try to find one near Manchester😀 I'm off to Spain 18- 28 Oct but if it clashes something could still be sorted.
  19. Nah, I'm driving a mile and using the starter 4 times. home, shop, garage, home. 7 days a week lately. Charged it up now. The ECU knocks the starter off when battery gets a bit low it seems. All's good in Saab land, but I'd still like an auto. My fancy reverse camera didn't last long, but I've got used to where the back is now.
  20. Mine FTP yesterday. I could buy a battery, or a car maybe😀
  21. I was only ever sick in one car with a certain driver, Rover P6 auto. He used to run me home from work sometimes, and when in slow moving traffic, he pumped the brake often I'm not saying you are a crap driver, but is she sick in other peoples cars? Deffo sit her in the front, better for her, and keeps you neck dry. Eddies car would be good, she would be so impressed* she would forget about everything else.
  22. Blocked ears together with movement can cause dizzyness.
  23. You shouldn't be any worse off though eddy, it's just that they take the pension into account when assessing ESA. I used to get Carers allowance for my wife, but when my OAP started I lost the Carers allowance. Yes , you don't get the rise you are expecting, but you don't get a drop. There may of course be other things affected in your case, that I am unaware of.
  24. What other kind of interview would you expect😀 Don't mention Autoaid.
  25. I've got half a blue slate roof and half a blue sheet roof on my house.
