  1. Yeah all easy now ive had it explained, im letting the garage do it though so they can't say i havn't done it good enough or whatever. Oh well, it's only another 17 years and it won't need one.😂
  2. Yes had a chat with the garage, they get it motd at another garage. He agrees, the seat belt was tucked down the seat, the corrosion is the bottom of the wing, they took the tape off, he said hel put some back on and tell them to leave it,or fill it. the handbrake and brakes and possibly the wheel bearings are due to it sitting for 4 weeks (and i stupidly left the handbrake on) so hell grease them up but at worse it needs a handbrake cable and bearings. The bulbs. He said seem fine if at worse hell put new bulbs in, and not charge me. The exhaust leak he thinks it needs some "gloop" round the join. Lambda is because of exhaust blow or it needs warming up. Tyre, i said ill get a part worn, he doesn't want to get involved in that. So yeah after having a decent chat he thinks most if not all of it he can do without new parts. And i've given the go ahead to do it. As for some reason i just can't scrap the thing. I can see why the eldery lady cried when i bought it, it's like some diesase you can't get rid of.

Oh well 20 months from a £100 car isn't too bad.
  4. Years ago i had a frost blue corsa b, on a 'K' plate. It was a 1.2 merit. But a 4 speed, had a plastic coin tray instead of a stereo, no wiring either. No cut outs in the doors for speakers, the door cards were smooth instead of speaker grilles, rubber gromits instead of aerial or rear wiper. My mate posted a picture of his modified gsi lookalike online, but there was more interest in mine in the background as it was thought to be either be pre-production or one of the very first. Might have to dig my old computer out for pics of it one day.
  5. Someone wanted a wedding car? Not sure your new wife will like the eleventy million birds queing up for you though... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/193302918532

  9. That is lovely. I have a thing for corsa b's. wouldn't mind another. This was my last one (Not the best pic of it)
  10. If its the same one i saw it in wellingborough. Not too far away.
  11. I had this, a 1.4 bought off ebay for £150. Was a nice car with just a few electrical problems. I Swapped with a mate but it then had omghgf after 2 weeks and he scrapped it....i even gave him a lift home. But about 3 months later i was stuck in bad traffic on the a6. Got to the front of it to see this, hazards on, bonnet up and about 700 litres of something pissed out underneath it.
  12. Finally Put a new midsection on the polo, snapped two exhaust clamp bolts and hurt my hand after slipping and punching the underneath. Then started it up for the first time in a week, started fine but has a bloody blow. Gave the yaris (or granny mobile as my daughter calls it) a good clean and polish. Then changed headlight bulbs. What an absolute nob the passenger side one is! Made my newly bad hand even worse. 1/10 would not recommend playing with cars today.
  13. Another saxo track car* £600. Sure i saw someone wanted one? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/114035013324
  14. It's annoying, few years ago i had a corsa b. it was spotless(not even bonnet edge rust) and had only done 40k. Came back to it in a near empty car park and the bumper was hanging down on the floor with a big scrape and crack on that corner. Obviously no note or anything. Found a bumper in the right colour that was almost as clean as mine was, then two months later it got keyed all down the passenger side, (like every car in the street had that night) managed to polish most of it out as mine wasn't as bad as some, then a little bit of touch up pen got it ok from a distance. For then some nob to knock the mirror off, it was electric, so it had dangled down on the wires and bounced off the door. Cracking the casing, smashing the glass and 4 deep scuffs on the door. Glad i have a drive now!
