  1. I might still have one that's in pieces, as I brought it from a car boot as a kid. Then had the idea to take it apart and make it into a civilian van. Hopefully it survived our family house move from 2000. I'll check next time I'm in the loft and report back.
  2. Nice purchase, but I wouldn't recommend running it on veg. A friend of mine run's various cars on veg without bother. So tried it on his 02 406 HDI, with a 50/50 mix and after a few months he had problems. ☹️ It cost about £750 in the end to put right! I forget what failed, guessing the pump. I know it took alot of faffing though to get it sorted.
  3. Really pleased you bagged yourself a Clio @BorniteIdentity. I nearly brought a N reg Silver 1.2 Oasis as a temporary car years ago from a back street garage. But it had a borked alternator, which in the middle of winter wasn't ideal and the guy got the hump when I tried to haggle. So I passed on it but always wished I'd brought it, as it was ace to drive otherwise. The wheel trim's fitted are correct btw. I can remember working as a valeter at a dodgy Nissan Dealer, back in the early 00's. An finding a full set of these on a shelf, so put them to good use as they have no Renault logo's on. As it turned out they were a perfect fit for a PX'd J reg Peugeot 309 GRD with missing wheel trims. It looked pretty smart too I thought, the garage must have agreed as they sold it for a £100 more than they originally planned!
  4. Hi Mo, tis a Fiat Stilo Estate. In 1.6 Active Aircon spec. (Minus Aircon as needs regas! ) Thank's for the link on the wheel trims. I've got 3 of the genuine wheel trims already. I'll get a 4th at some point or maybe upgrade to alloys if the right set come along.
  5. The Talbot Samba Style previously mentioned, is back on ebay as it failed to sell last time. Despite the obvious rust issue's though, I'd buy this one myself if again it wasn't for the lack of fund's etc. As my first car was a near identical example. Although that one cost me £130 with Mot & Tax ! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1985-Talbot-samba-style-954cc-jam-number-plate-project-with-alot-of-spares/293662740141?hash=item445fa9cead:g:yVIAAOSwYy9fEdSE
  6. Another day, another MK1 Clio. A nice looking base 4 Speed 1.2 RL Prima. With only 63,000 and Mot till next July. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1995-M-Renault-Clio-RL-Prima-1-2-3-Door-finished-in-white/283938534546?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Dfa57d7438980479ca02bb29fa4ccded0%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D303629774476%26itm%3D283938534546%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A0a962254-cec2-11ea-9419-74dbd180c387|parentrq%3A87fc7e431730aca45a52474dffeb3ec4|iid%3A1
  7. Not a major job completed. But after months of having my genuine front Fiat mudflaps laying about. I've finally got round to fitting them today. Nearside one went on a lot easier. As I suspect the wing is a thinner pattern part. As the two clips supplied, seam to slide in without too much hassle. Unlike the offside which took a lot of faffing. Bonus was though I got to remove the shite stuck behind the wheel arch liner while I was there making a hole for the self tapper screw that's supplied. So hopefully that will help stop the wings from rusting out.
  8. Decent looking low mileage Vauxhall Vectra B 2.0 LS with Covid MOT. Currently on ebay with over 19 HRS and a current bid of £360. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/vauxhall-vectra-B-one-to-put-away-Genuine-39K-miles-FUTURE-CLASSIC-not-escort/383638886205?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3Dafa9bc18789a420798abe3b790ed45b5%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D7%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D283938534546%26itm%3D383638886205%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A3b048795-cdf7-11ea-8c6e-56001ba7ed09|parentrq%3A82cb5a771730ad397e7ba51effecd9be|iid%3A1
  9. Shonky looking MK1 Renault Clio Derv with a long Mot. £400 BIN. Although despite it needing some TLC if I had the spare cash, I'd quite fancy this one myself to tinker with. As I had a J reg Renault 19 about 15 years ago with the same engine which went well. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RENAULT-CLIO-1-9-DIESEL-MOT-01-06-2021/303629774476?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D82e306c41f004e5a8b087d695bac32f2%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D15%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D324233781883%26itm%3D303629774476%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2380057&_trksid=p2380057.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3A8b646664-cdec-11ea-b8d7-c20d828e59a5|parentrq%3A8285523a1730a4e8670960aaffee448e|iid%3A1 Although this MK1 Fiat Punto 55SX could make someone a decent buy at £595. With only 37,000 and a good MOT history too. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/202007221556479?postcode=ws98re&advertising-location=at_cars&make=FIAT&model=PUNTO&sort=relevance&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly New&onesearchad=New&price-to=1000&radius=1501&page=1
  10. Late last night I heard a horrible noise, went out to check my car etc was ok. An found a poor hedgehog had been run over. So moved it to the grass verge. This morning he was still there, been kicked by some gobshite kids. So did the only decent thing I could and burried him in the back garden. RIP hedgehog.
  11. The Sana does shares it's underpinnings from the Tipo, including the same 1372cc unit which was also fitted to the MK2 Uno. Outer bodywork though is all Yugo own.
  12. WTF is wrong with people. I live in a busy residential street with a 30mph limit. An have just heard, then saw 2 cars racing at 60mph + while the one over takes the other, barely missing having a head on with some park cars in the process to beat the other. I'm pig sick of it, the way these morons are going round here. Someone going to end up being killed. I just hope it not some poor sod minding his own business.
  13. My Brother had this Sierra when we were kids. My Mum and Dad made the mistake of taking us into a massive Toy Shop on Holiday in Dorset. After an hour, He got the BTCC Sierra and I got a Corgi Mercedes 190 Taxi. Both sadly long gone, although I have brought myself another Taxi. I'm while I've got the Merc out, might as well get my 1:36 Sierra to go with it's smaller twin. BTW, If anyone's interested. I've sorted out my unwanted Corgi, Matchbox etc. Will post up in the For Sale section.
  14. You need to restore it AS style. Find a Corgi Doner Sierra, preferably in Red or Blue. An swap the bootlid off it to yours. Sorted!
  15. Thank's! I even used to make my own wheel trims. By using a hole punch. Then drawing the pattern with a pencil. Before going over it with a Black Biro. My other hobby for a time, was making paper buildings and banger racing cars. For the Banger Cars. I used draw one side on A4 paper. Then cut that out and use it as a template for the other side. Then make a front and rear, plus roof. Colour them in my felt tip of choice. Then tape it together and use scrap Corgi, Matchbox cars for the wheels. Made a few old Rovers, MK2 Granada's. An Jags etc. Then once they got too battered. I'd make more.
