  1. I'm aware of the circumstances and back story, and have met @Mrs Spart in the past. You have done a sterling job with this, and if it's as far as you wish to go I see no problem in a roffle. You have no need to feel bad about any part of your dealings in the matter.
  2. I'd chop the top diagonally left to right.
  3. Just back from my Speed Awareness Course. Two guys, seen one of them before a few years back. Told him "I'm deaf, don't ask me any questions". Did that because last time he asked me a question and I couldn't answer. Because (1) I hadn't a clue what he had been on about, and (2) didn't hear the question. He said I should have made him aware at the start So made him aware. He said I could sit at the front. I said I'll sit anywhere you like, but it won't make me less deaf, So stayed in my seat. His mate came over, "err be a bit difficult with you being deaf, can you lip read?" He had a bushy beard and 'tash. I felt like saying "Yes if I could see your lips". But stuck with Yes. All went swimmingly after that, my new table mates filled all my answers in, and the result is Nil points. Tbf some of the videos do have subtitles.
  4. Workmanship is impressive. I can't help thinking it's too low, and may interact with sleeping policemen and the like. Or indeed that a large pothole may ground one side.
  5. Brings back memories of the late, great, Dave numbers. Who did a similar job with a Ford Ranger cylinder head before his return trip from Scotland to France, after his collection broke down in the Birmingham area.
  6. http://www.jdo1.com/speedos.html Was much cheaper when I called, but it's a few years back. Has a complete workshop set up in his front room.
  7. Wheel nuts. No farting about with bolts on a proper Escort.
  8. Many years ago I had a lucrative sideline taking my fellow workmates cars for MOT in my lunch hour. Mainly lucrative because I generally got the work. My late wife drove all the failures that I ended up with for next to nowt. Think Allegro, Ambassador, Mini, etc. She was over the moon years later when she bought a brand new 205 with her own money. My latest flame has a Kia Picanto Auto, owned from new 6 years ago. Around 5K on the clock now. She passed her test in a manual years ago and bought an auto first car, by mistake. Had to buy Auto's ever since because she forgot how to use a clutch!
  9. He did mention the gears. I'm on the insurance but I can't see me getting behind the wheel except in an emergency. My old fella started trying to squeeze through gaps that weren't there aged 72 and I'm a little* older.
  10. Might get a Couple of stripes, motor home style. Has a few scratches high up. Wouldn't bother me, but it's not mine. Won't be race van stickered, although it is insured as a race van.
  11. These tend to last. The Stock car signs cost twice the price and could last one race if you rolled it. About 3K there all in. 13K for a low spec F2
  12. New * Yaris just back from having signs. Had a lot of scratches but they are all hidden now. It's a spare car just in case. Nothing much to report, recent weekends racing have been cancelled, next weekend is cancelled all because of rain. Work on Luton van is progressing slowly. Photos of that after my hols, when I'm hoping for Sun.
  13. Never mind, at least you can read* the registration
  14. May be waiting for this vote to decide if they are allowed to. 😂
  15. Returning home from Kings Lynn Stock cars and must have got carried away. Know the route very well but I'm not normally driving.
  16. 47 in a 40. Long while since I had my last classroom stint. Hope I get chance of another.
  17. They may get wet Take some spare underwear.
  18. Sir John. I was 67 at my last go. I'm not getting in a stock car again. Auto grass? never say never, but my knee is a bit dicey these days, and I enjoy being able to walk.
  19. I saw that in Liverpool on the 27 March. Couldn't decide if it was accidental, or an advertising gimmick. Hazards were still going.
  20. Retired as red, I think s/s was year before? Guaranteed red due to being European champion. Not sure how his points were at that time. Had to get a new licence, not sure if he's got a temp, or season one, same number 788. Asked if he could start blue. and Bunter laughed and said no. So red it is then. Can be better from the back, especially in a strange car. Never driven a TMR before, always Randell/TLF. I'm a little worried he may do well. It's a qualifying round for the Word of Shale, and may not end here if he has points in the bag.
  21. There's one neighbour who keeps a decent log on here.
  22. Been quiet for a good while, built a spare Yaris over winter. Raced a couple of Autograss meetings for Amelia recently. Ste's wife, Hannah has won a race or two. Reason for this posting is I've just been told the Stephen will race an F2 at Kings Lynn on Saturday 6th April. We were going watching, it's a big F1/F2 meeting. But a hire car was on offer, so £550 and on you go. ( plus licence and whatever, he's not booked in yet). Last time he raced an F2 was well over 2 years go. It's good to watch him, but I thought the worrying was over for me. Next day, Amelia races a Yaris at Nottingham Autograss, on the way back, which is much more sedate.
