  1. Doing some running around this afternoon with a neighbour. Car of choice.... They misspelled turd. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  2. My instructor was a Fireman who taught driving part time. He taught my sister who passed first time then me who passed second time in his mk3 fiesta. My dad had also been teaching us in minis he had bought us, my sister had a white mini 850 HUF404V she drove it for a year and a half before upgrading to a metro. I got a bright yellow mini 850 with bright blue flowered heavily perfumed household carpet stuck in. About a month after passing my test I swapped into 'HUF' as she was known and my sister traded in the yellow mini for the metro. Sis had lost faith in HUF as she was always in a huff and breaking down randomly and then the gearbox went and a new engine was stuck in, a 1 litre from a metro van which at first had the small issues you get with an engine install, bad earths, leaking exhaust etc at which point she bailed on it and I took it over.

  4. I think some of the Porsche 986s had both boot and engine compartment as electric and to open when the battery was flat you pulled a fuse inside the car and jumped it via the fuse box and door catch for negative. Remember my neighbour the AA man saying it was an actual technical bulletin from Porsche for recovery. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  5. Similar to this I have found myself watching: steve1989mreinfo on the tube, it's kind of soothing in a Bob Ross painting kind of way but with the added interest of him eating 20 to 30 year old mre's. Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  6. I believe I am the envy of my neighbours !!!! 4 bikes in bits and one running is the correct ratio? Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  7. Oooh shaft drive ftw !!! And CBT is only about £100..... So tempting.... Sent from my SM-A505FN using Tapatalk
  8. I really have to fight the compulsion as a front seat passenger to not open the glove box on the car to see its storage capacity and operation, maybe its contents as well... Luckily I don't get in the front of a taxi that often.
  9. Picture of rear label as it wasn't shown on amazon
  10. Punto power steering is currently playing up and heading for ftp. Just pulled a code of C1007 from it which conveniently seems to be stated as 'power steering motor failure'. Luckily the insurance is due to run out at the end of the month so I can park it up and ignore it till the mot is due sometime in January.
  11. Thank you just ordered two on the wife's account so they're free untill she realises.......

    Want a giggle?

    That first smart car one made me smile when it came up on my google feed this morning. For the mondeo wasn't the dead bugs on windshield and dead bugs on order stolen from the pilots vs engineers aircraft maintenance reports? Which is also a fun thing to google.
  13. Yup most jet ski's are 12v and the switches should* be waterproof and perfect on a moped in summer
  14. Those wrist strap and safety cut off switches for jetski's and motorcross bikes should be an easy mod onto a moped?
