  1. Aside from what he said about modern transits being good. They're not. They're shite 😁
  2. Not a train man. Tried to pretend and got flamed 😆
  3. Big question is will you have to sell the t6 to be able to settle the bill?? Joking aside I'd be really interested to know how much this cost. Obviously not if you don't want to disclose, but now that I'm in the realms of this sort of work it'd be interesting to know roughly how much this much work at such a high standard costs.
  4. Seen it today when I had the kids at swimming club. Leisure centre carpark is above Bury Station (East lancs railway). That deltic makes an epic row
  5. I get it but if the stuff done is bolt on bolt off and doesn't change the structure of the car then it's just all good crack surely? End of the day you've got to have the stuff you own how you want it, as long as it can be put back for a future owner then it's sound
  6. Free gifts from a mate who has been sorting through a job lot of ex factor stock. Be a crying shame to use the points, reckon I'll just keep them in the glove box (hopefully) for show 😁
  7. If it makes you feel any better, I forgot to put one of the plug leads back on the BGT and drove off. Felt like it was missing but it wasn't terrible. Checking under the bonnet, I saw my mistake. Yeah, might have done that too
  8. I had a blond moment. Messing about with the fuel system ignition on a touching the posi lead on the battery to run the fuel pump. Happy with my alteration I jumped in to go for a drive. Why won't it start? Why is it cranking and not firing? What's broke now? Oh, just pop the coil lead back on then...
  9. Brilliant cars, adored ours
  10. Yeah maybe it wasn't in context. It's an old joke about a woman going to a garage complaining about her car. I just knew the punchline is all
  11. How's about being escorted by me, SiC, HMC, Captain 70s, Vulgalour etc in a veritable parade of unreliability.
  12. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/275296334878?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-127632-2357-0&ssspo=J-Ef8-wUR8i&sssrc=2349624&ssuid=3Da_rdIpStK&var=&widget_ver=artemis&media=COPY Absolutely bloody love this. Unfortunately it's being sold by the fella I tried to buy an A40 off over Xmas. To say he's a bit miserable is an understatement. Does get some nice looking stock in tbf

    Not quite as pretty as a chrome bumper, but with the benefit of hindsight they do a bloody good job of integrating them into the design

    A very good looking car too. Even impact bumpers couldn't stop it being a pretty shape!

    Cheers bud. Yes I really do enjoy driving it. I'm hoping that the driving it/mending it balance is beginning to tilt in my favour 😂 (famous last words)

    D'ya wanna buy a set? Painted with humbrol and shod with 20 year old stomils? 😄
  18. Having read a lot of your threads, good luck with that Si 😆

    Thanks very much. It's as rough as toast with its paint job and the interior is a bitsa but for me it's part of its charm. It's to use not polish and it goes really well !

    Next big job as funds allow is a new exhaust made for it as the home made effort on it is abysmal. Then new period correct buckets to replace the Rover metro seats. Better work some overtime then 😆
