  1. No problem, I'll mark these both as sold to you@bunglebus @eddyramrod Likewise, I'll put these to one side for you too. Thanks. Guilty! I'd realized after I made the original post, that I'd forgotten to include it. So quickly edited it afterwards. I'll leave the pm's about payment, until either over the weekend or Mon if that's ok with everyone? Just in case anyone else wants to buy anything before I put them all away again. Although I will try and go back in the loft for another look 1st. As I'm sure there a few others hidden somewhere. It's the reason I'm partly selling it, as I keep being tempted to start looking for more Darda whenever I look at it. Which is last thing I should be doing right now! You watch though, in another 12 months. I'll be out buying some more.
  2. No problem, you have any plans for it?
  3. Apologies on the tat sale delay everyone! Below is what I've gone through so far, although I do plan on adding some more odds and ends at some point. Once I get chance to venture back in the loft. All above 50p each. MB Datsun & Mercury now sold. Escort is missing tow bar and Renault Clio is missing headlights, plus broken window. Next batch above are a £1 each. Renault 18 is missing taxi sign and R5 is missing tab above tow bar. Darda Renault 5 Turbo, playworn paint but otherwise excellent. Motor is working well and even spins the back tyres on smooth surfaces! £5, Sold. Really heavily playworn Siku Audi 80 convertible, with stance yo included. Yours 50p? Corgi Commer, badly repainted but complete. Comes with two rear bodies. Chassis has minor damage see last pic. £2.50, Sold. El cheapo Mini pullback, motor doesn't work and paintwork ruinned by a 8yr me! Held together by screws, so could easily be repainted etc. 50p 1:25 ish El Cheapo BMW E36 RC. Stickers are slightly faded but otherwise body ok. Complete but unfortunately motor appears dead, might be of use to someone. £1? Sold!
  4. Miniature tat sale anyone? Will update shortly, once I've gone through all the boxes. By which time I'll have decided that I can't part with 90% of them all!
  5. @2cvspecial the Fiat Panda is by Norev. I'd brought mine off eBay. If you want one though, my Brother has mentioned he has one spare in his collection that he might sell. I can grab some pictures etc and post them up? Also I shall be doing another Diecast sale, as previously mentioned a while ago! Will be mostly 1:55 / 1:65 corgi / matchbox and alike. Should be within the next week or so. @flat4alfa if your after a Darda. I think that I still have a Renault 5, with playworn paint but with a good motor ? Brought it as me and my Brother had a Darda Ford RS2000 set as kids. Mine was Silver and his was Met Red. Sadly it's long gone as it 'disappeared' after a house move. Suspect it was thrown away by family. Cars were pretty rough though, but the track was pretty much mint.☹️ So it's unlikely I'll do anything with it anytime soon, given how expensive the track is now.
  6. Spotted this pair last year nearby on the same property. They haven't moved since then by the looks of it, seeing them again today. No idea what the story is but the house is clearly full of furniture etc. Although not sure if it's occupied.
  7. See I was so annoyed, I can't even spell it right! I meant to say top up voucher.
  8. A few weeks ago I was feeling pretty fed up. So I decided to treat myself with some 1:43 Diecast chod. First purchase was this workshop lift made by GMP. Detail is really nice overall and the ramp height is also adjustable, as are the legs. Although the height adjusters feel a bit flimsy, so I'll try not to mess with them too much. Came with the oil drainer and oil tray. Although I didn't even realize that the reel was adjustable, until I saw pics online. Which is a nice touch. Fitting the ramp to the base with the tiny screws though was a pita, so I'll be leaving it assembled permanently! Had my Schabak Golf to hand too, so here it is receiving a miniature service. Also while looking online, I'd spotted a minichamps MK3 Escort. Wanted one for ages, so was pleased to get this at a reasonable price. The details are great and I especially love the wheels. As they were my favourite ford steel wheel of the day. Paint is slightly flawed but not enough to upset me. The other purchase is a Norev Fiat Panda. I couldn't resist it in the cocktail blue, as it's one of my favourite Panda colours. Interestingly they have chosen to base it on the 1.3 multijet model, rather than the pez fire engine models. Casting is spot on I reckon and all the painted details are neatly applied too. So really happy with them overall.
  9.

  11. Fucking local Co-op, why is it every time I buy a top voucher at the counter the person serving me is a idiot. Went in for £10 and they charged me £20, so i said it was wrong and was told. No it's what you asked for!! Oh and they couldn't / wouldn't refund me either. Bollocks to them now. Instead of walking to my local co-op, I'll drive the 3 mile to Tesco instead and they can have my business.
  12. Thanks. I can remember actually driving a Stilo hatchback in the same spec brand new, at a horrible hire company I briefly worked for. An at the time I found the styling rather bland as a Fiat fan ! Although when I started looking around for a cheap estate car, a few yrs back. The Stilo styling was one of the reasons I brought it!! Funny how your taste's change. It's been a great workhorse so far and hopefully intend on keeping it for a good while longer yet.
  13. My Fiat Stilo is back from having a new clutch, another fail courtesy of the previous owner. Cost more than I paid for the car to have it done, but was totally worth the expense. Now I can actually pullout of junctions in busy traffic etc safely! Also took the lazy option and had them replace the front discs too, as they were low. So no more embarrassing squealing every time I stop either. I'm still looking for a decent replacement headlining as the current one is torn to shreds in the back. So if anyone knows/ see's one Breaking etc ideally in the Midlands. That would be greatly appreciated.

    E10 fuel

    My local Sainsbury's have also changed there pumps when I filled up yesterday, but when I asked the cashier about it. They told me that it was still E5 as they won't get E10 till September ish.
  15. The only company I could think of as I've used them a few times in the past, don't appear to list the newer Panda on their website. Although it could be worth a try still, as I've always found them really helpful. There based over in Malvern and will also post too. https://www.carz2.co.uk/ The other suggestion I thought of, is perhaps trying to salvage the sills from a scrap car instead? Although that would require alot more hassle admittedly.
  16. Thanks again for the help, don't mind paying out for a more durable product as we hope to keep the Uno indefinitely! Thinking about it, probably 3 cans sounds about right as there a fair amount of area to cover in there. With the Diesel Panda sills, I had a quick look on eBay and they are available aftermarket but are pricey. Could you possibly use another aftermarket sill with a similar / same profile instead ?
  17. We paid over £50 alone last year, just for a brand new subframe to be powder coated on a MK2 Uno. So that seams good value to me at £120 all in. Interesting about the variation of the toe in, I guess they must have there reasons for it though. I totally agree if you swapping a subframe out, might as well do it right while it's all out and replace any worn shocks etc at the same time. I'll definitely look up Buzzweld, as that would be ideal for what my Brother wants to do with the Uno. How many cans would you think roughly for two inner rear arches?
  18. Nice one on yet another Panda rescue! I've driven a MK2b Punto with the 1.3 multijet years ago on a long M'way drive. An I recall it having plenty of punch as you say. It had no trouble keeping up with the 1.8 Vectra either that I was having to follow at full chat. It would be interesting to see your thoughts on how it compares though to the fire engine in the real world. Out of interest btw how much did the upgraded rear subframe cost? As me and my Brother keep saying we'd like to try a newer Panda at some point. So be good to know, as we'd probably buy the worst example available. An also where did you get the colour matched raptor paint from? As it might come in useful for my Brother's MK1 Uno which is currently awaiting rust repairs. Cheers.

    E10 fuel

    As usual in this country, there fucking about with something on the pretence of helping the environment. When all it has to do with is money. Great. My 2006 Fiat Stilo 1.6 pez won't run on E10, although if it was a 1.2/ 1.4 it would. It's not the best economically as it's a heavy car for its size. So if I'm having to pay more at the pump for E5 super etc every time I fill up. Then it isn't going to be viable for me to keep it. Cunts.
  20. Seeing a car getting a second chance after a incident that would normally spell the end. That makes my day! We had a MK4 & 5 Fiesta in our family. An both were excellent cars that never let us down once. I can't even remember the last time I saw a Mazda version on the roads. The way I look at cars, is not what there worth. It's what there worth to me, if there reliable, reasonably ok in most departments. Then spending £££'s to keep it going another 12mths plus, is well worth the investment. Sure you can just go out an buy another, but your likely buying a unknown quantity that could leave you worse off. Well done on the work so far. 👍
  21. Just been in my local TK Max and spotted these Bburago amongst the dross. Was really tempted to buy the 1:43 Orange recovery truck but resisted and likewise with the 1:24 Porsche. I might pop by tomorrow so if anyone wants one, just message me and I'll happily grab any. They did have some Majorette Audi A1's in Blue for £2.49, if that floats anyone boat too.
  22. It's a 110 I'm sure. It used to have the red on the TDI badge, but it faded off as the rear always faced the sun on his driveway. One of the reasons my Grandad brought it, was because of the generous boot space. As he was always doing some kind of DIY etc at home. He brought this off a family member. Who had previously had this at about 2/3 year old, as his reps company car in Aston, Birmingham. For there engineer business. Although they sacked him as he was skiving off in the Passat down Cornwall etc, when he should have bee working!
  23. Well hope @Supernaut your Brother enjoys it, as much as my Grandad did in his ownership. He still asks me about it on his good days, so would be nice to see/ hear any future updates etc. I can confirm it does shift well, when required too.
  24. Recently unearthed this sad Schabak 1:43 Ford Sierra Sapphire from the loft. I've previously had two attempts at painting this 4 years ago, both ended in failure. So I've put it away until I was ready to try again. Unfortunately I've lost the left front headlight, but by luck my brother had a broken Vanguard's Sierra. The light will fit, expect that the joined indicator section fowls on the pin for the Schabak's separate Indicator. If that makes sense? ( Picture of both below ) So does anyone have any ideas, on how best to cut the replacement lights down? As I only have a Stanley blade and one shot without ruining them at present!
