  1. Its a bit of a combination of things. Where access is good like external fittings on a machine then yes you can move the ratchet to where you want it. But if you are working on machinery internally or in an engine bay for example, you might have very little travel room for the ratchet before hitting an obstacle. You can buy ratchets with a fine tooth action as well (more teeth to engage on in a shorter range of travel) but these are dearer
  2. Most are multi-point as a matter of course now, socket and combination spanner sets. I find when ordering tools at work I have to specify 6 point if its what I need. Impact rated tooling still 6 point though for obvious reasons
  3. My dads friend has a company rossendale Road springs. Making leaf springs is pretty much all they do. Been in business for decades. I appreciate its a long way from you (I assume) but if its of any help or you want to get any technical questions answered im sure I could ask john
  4. There's a contradiction in terms ๐Ÿคฃ
  5. When I had mine I was forever getting told I'd got it all wrong buying a manual. Just like doing it myself (changing gears I mean ๐Ÿคญ). Truly brilliant cars. The first posh car i had and spoilt me for anything else really. They're not outstanding at any one thing, they just do everything well!
  6. Iveco pickup. And I'll be driving the fucker tomorow as well cos keyworker (again ๐Ÿคฃ)
  7. Its a personal challenge to put a car in knowing its near guaranteed a pass. My old 330ci has never failed in 17yrs and only had 4 advisories. Imagine the pressure I feel under every year ๐Ÿ˜…
  8. I really , really like that generation of swift. A couple of months back we got a new car for her and it was a toss up between a swift sport or a fiesta st150. The ford won, yet I'm still watch listing swift sports ๐Ÿ™„. And yes your right, people are belle's with cars and the idea of giving people mot extensions was as much madness as mot exemption is
  9. You're just strange ๐Ÿ˜†
  10. Got to say your doing a really nice job of this
  11. Ohhh fucking nora that's lovely
  12. Genuinely superb. Makes a lot of sense as well. Spend a lot more than that to buy a new cab and possibly be disappointed ! ๐Ÿ‘
  13. God i remember that paint. Apparently easy to damage repair cos your never looking for a break to hide the paint match as it never matches anyway ๐Ÿคฃ
  14. Jesus wept. As I click back on this I see the lazy spotters thread above! Sorry pal ๐Ÿฅบ
  15. Hey did a primera gti(??) Didn't they? Always wondered how good they are, people speak very highly of, and the talent always has to come from the car its based on Edit, same year as my golf gti 20vt. More proof of my theory that mid 90s to mid 2000s is the absolute high spot of car
  16. Sorry @Cavcraft don't know if there's a general spotted thread so I've nicked yours ๐Ÿ˜œ been meaning to photo this for yonks. Owd lad still using it as a daily driver. I believe @HarmonicCheeseburger is in the valley same as me so maybe he has seen it too
  17. I've just read it. Not even sure whyvyou could be arsed replying. I sold a honda 550/4 that hadn't missed or failed an mot in 40 years to a lad in Glasgow sight unseen. Really lovely thing bit cosmetically tatty but mechanically mint. Proper survivor. He paid a grand and half when they were going for 3 for a minter. Then rang me up when his courier dropped it off to complain it needs the tank painting. I said you bring it back at your expense and ill give you your brass back. He didn't. Worlds full of fucking simpletons
  18. Does seem a shame because from memory you bought this as you'd had one or more before. Be nice to think you could graft a suitable motor in there but its not as easy as all that is it. Best of luck with it anyway pal and top work up to this stage. Commiserations ๐Ÿ˜•
  19. Amazed no ones said it yet paging @worldofceri
