  1. Red. That's 11 all lol Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  2. If it's not bad enough that I have fibromyalgia, have had 4 back operations and am in constant pain, I fell down the last two stairs today and landed on my arse and am now struggling to walk or even move. That's despite swallowing double the amount of prescription painkillers I usually take. If no better tomorrow a visit to the doc or to A&E may well be on the cards. I think there will be no fiddling with cars or delivering pizzas for a week or two. And daughters car needing an MOT within 3 weeks, for which it needs two new tyres which are ordered and hoping to get in the next day or two.
  3. The headlights of the bora are absolutely crap. I'm going to have a go at improving them. I'm intending using the da sander, first with 800 grit discs, then 1600, then 3000 trapezoid and then 6000 trapezoid discs. I think that should improve matters. Then I will have to think of what I can treat them with which will slow down the rate of them deteriorating again. Does this sound like a decent plan? Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  4. My bora of many shiters has heated leather seats. The best articles I have ever had. Really do my bad back good after standing on cold doorsteps waiting for the numpties who know I'm coming to answer their doors! Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  5. All three of my current vehicles I bought without seeing. And they are all good things. The leon is in exceptionally good condition both mechanically and bodily, the hilux is exactly as it was described as a cat N writeoff which has had very little done to run it, and the forum bike bora I bought cos I really wanted a pd130 which are like hens teeth up here unless you pay over a grand, and the history of it and comments about it on here. I have bought quite a few cars unseen off of ebay and only had the fingers burned once, that was a citroen c1 sensodrive with the most comprehensive service h
  6. Mirror glass is the answer[emoji23]. Hardly the cars fault, parked on the high street outside my work whilst collecting deliveries. I'm quite surprised the culprit did not get the bosses landrover discovery as well as I was behind it! Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk

  8. The bora has just cost me an extra, and unexpected £3.89! I will be happy if that's the only extra money it costs. What cost £3.89 I hear you ask? Let's see how long it takes for someone to guess the correct answer[emoji23] Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  9. Currently 3 of mine, all running and road legal. 2012 seat leon 1.6td dsg. Owned now for two years, the longest I have ever owned a car. Doesn't get used much. It was bought as a damaged repaired and is utterly immaculate. I am considering selling this. 2010 toyota hilux invincible 3.0 td auto. Owned now for about 5 months. Bought as a damaged repairable, the only damage was a burst brake pipe, a split front bumper and scratches along drivers side. Brakes fixed, bumper joined with cable ties and running as it is. 2005 forum bike vw bora highline 1.9td. The daily hack for work (me) and commu
  10. The car is home and oil, oil filter changed today and the wheelbearing and track rod ends investigated. I had it jacked up and both front wheels off. The wheelbearing is fine, the problem was the hub nut was slack. The drivers side TRE is knackered, and the rubber on the other side is split. So two new TREs ordered, will be put on and then the alignment done. The car is running amazingly well for 240640 miles covered. There doesn't look to be any rust underneath it for a 15 year old car either. Presumably because it has lived most of its life in the middle of England, not where it is now, abou
  11. It now has new timing belt, waterpump, tensioner, coolant and auxiliary belt. It's not home yet, when it comes home it will get oil and filters. Dan says the front brakes are ok for now or else he would have changed them, but it needs a track rod end and a wheelbearing. It shall get these items in the near future.

  12. A cording to the service book it had a belt at about 80k then another at 160k. Its now over 240k. The car is mint inside and good outside. It's obvious the left front wing has been replaced, it does not quite fit correctly but it is a pattern part. The front right seems solid, just very slight bubbling and a slight dent. If it was a grotty filthy thing in the past it certainly is not now! You would have no idea looking at the inside, and driving it that it was, even at the first belt change at 80k. The only fault I can find is the headlights are crap, the lenses faded. But 3000 grit then 6000
  13. The bora is dropped off to Dan's in Elgin. He should be doing it at the weekend. The car certainly is good enough to get the money spent on it. Its racking up the miles faultlessly Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
  14. It's absolutely brilliant Zel. I first got the leon done over a year ago, and have never had to wash it with a sponge since. It got a lot of work the first time on paint correction with a couple of minor dents and chips sorted, and a 3000 then 6000 trapezoid sand. It doesn't even get dirty, and you know how filthy the roads here are, especially the b9001, which is the one I use to Aberdeen. It just needs covered with snow foam then power hoses to take it up again. It was back to the retailers a few weeks ago for a decent valet and top up of the coating. It's the best money I have ever spent on
  15. If I bade beside Zel he could "borrow" my hilux or leon any time he wanted. The leon would be easy for him its pretty shiny anyway. Mind you these pics were taken by a professional retailer just after a clean and ceramic coating[emoji16] Sent from my SM-T585 using Tapatalk
