  1. No-one's asked the big question - pompe Bosch?
  2. I've been to Kames just once, with a uni friend, as a spectator at a sprint in spring 1992 in my Fiat 126. It was fab, as were the roads to it - we'd not realised the junction we needed coming south from Glasgow on the M74 (or was it the A74(M)? ) was closed so pootled down to the next one and cross-countryed across the moors at the best a 126 could do. The use of fences rather than drystane dykes and an utter lack of oncoming traffic allowed the use of the full width of the road. Uni pal saw his first ever Davrian there, he was smitten!
  3. It's the corrosion from atmospheric moisture that mucks up scotchloks, so perhaps devise a way of "potting" them?
  4. At least we can't make jokes about it being upside down! I saw the picture of the car and right below it a tweet from Ian saying he was ok, so I "liked" that tweet but didn't feel that wading in any further would be beneficial. I'm glad @dollywobbleris uninjured.
  5. Wheelie wheelie wheelie!
  6. 6-cylinder E-series South African oddity...
  7. Do you have a vacuum cleaner hose or suchlike? I've used one to trace exhaust leaks in the past - hold one end to your ear, and run the other end closely along the exhaust pipe with the engine running, any leaks should be easily located.
  8. This seems like the perfect advert for one of those camera door bells that record movement outside your door. Sorry to hear this, Dave.

    It gives a whole new meaning to "Yir Da sells Avon"...
  10. Right, I've been thinking about the seat ratchet, and need convincing that it's ok. If you've repaired the mount, bolted it in and the ratchet works fine (by that I mean emergency-stop-proof) then good stuff, but if not may I suggest...? ...unbolting the passenger seat and bolting the driver's seat in its place - it'll have to face the rear seats for the brackets to line up - and see if it'll stay in place when you imitate an emergency stop (perhaps using both legs to replicate the strength you suddenly seem to possess in one leg when you're panicking!) And see if it holds? It's just a thought.
  11. [Sickboy]It should preshent no sherious difficultiesh... [/Sickboy]* The metal's full thickness here, it's just fatigued and not corroded. *
  12. Just peel the carpet back, it's a doddle on these.
  13. Welding is the best option, but it's not actually "structural": perhaps as a bodge a riveted and bonded (araldite for example) lump of aluminium might just do. It'd at least get it a test and allow you to drive it to a tame welder, just don't bond the bodge in if you take this route as it'll be difficult to properly clean up the steel.
