    Station got a reaction from Vince70 in Smart car re-raffle thread!!   
    I bought this r'other day.
     

     
    It's really superb. Engine is punchy and has a nice sound, gear change is slow, especially pulling into roundabouts with incoming traffic, I prefer it in semi around town.
    I've fixed the door handles (they were missing a bolt holding them on) and have given it a wash, and plumbed the boost gauge in. My mojo has completely diminished with cars, I've not bought one since June last year so this was a nice swansong - I'm going offload it again in a couple of weeks time if anyone's interested?
     
    BTW, everyone thinks I'm German with the plates. My new neighbour even shouted 'hallo nachbar' and other assorted greetings when he saw me, and looked disappointed when I said 'I'm not f*cking German!'

    Is about a tenner all-in. Less if you have stuff lying about like I did.
     
    Drill and tap the end of the valve cap to take the grease nipple. Add some araldite to strengthen and seal the join.
    Screw valve cap onto relevant valve. Hold grease gun pointing downwards and fit to the nipple. Pour in hydragas fluid antifreeze. Pump. Pressure from the gun pushes the schrader valve open with each stroke, allowing fluid in but not out.

    My MGF has done a suspension poo on the OSR and I'd like to 'pump it back up to sobreity' (c Quentin Ah ah ah circa 1991).
     
    Anyone fancy the job?
