  1. @Split_Pin I think you need to run a Geiger counter past those plates...
  2. That Golf's a cut and shut...
  3. When I first opened this thread I thought it said 'Found in the bins' i.e. items that have been disposed of which may also make a great thread? Some nice spots BTW...
  4. Imagine being on a track and this thing painted like Herbie drives past you 😂
  5. That Superkings Golf is poor... I would like the white Superkings Sierra Cosworth in my collection at some point...
  6. This has to be up there with the best* ad ever? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/cars/153797346195?_trkparms=aid%3D333200%26algo%3DCOMP.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D20171012094517%26meid%3D388be1aac95e4361b5cd804aa0e44711%26pid%3D100008%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D362884027656%26itm%3D153797346195%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100008.m2219
  7. What make is the silver Focus in the last pic? It looks interesting...
  8. It didn't work... and his bike stank!
  9. I was thinking the other day of bodge jobs I have encountered over the years. I was wondering if any of you have any stories to tell on the subject whether they was ingenious, dangerous or just funny! I'll start anyway... A couple of years ago a young lad I work with had just passed his test and bought an old Astra off of a mechanic*. He mentioned to me about it having an oil leak so I said I'd take a look. I lifted the bonnet and the engine was covered in oil and I spotted the problem immediately. The previous mechanic* owner seemed to have decided that it didn't need a rocker cover gasket and that white silicone would suffice! The cover had been tightened that much that the mating surfaces were touching and had forced all the silicone out anyway 🙄 Another example... When I was in high school (mid '90s) I was keen on mountain biking and a friend at school also started showing an interest and we would tinker with our bikes. I went round to his house one day and he was stood proudly next to his Raleigh Activator which he'd been servicing*. Looking over the bike I noticed the front forks (suspension) covered thick with grease*. I asked him what grease he had used and he replied he didn't have any so used lard out of the chip pan instead 🤣
  10. That would be great, many thanks! I noticed they do a kit that contains rocker gasket and water pump too. I might as well change the aux belt too...
  11. Tap up GM. He just replaced his on his 1.8 - he might even have the tools. Great, thanks for the heads up 👍 Paging @gm
