  1. They need to start teaching the old adage “beggars can’t be choosers” in school.
  2. Thanks. No plans myself but i’ve passed it onto a local Essex yank restorer and very good egg, who has also now passed it on to people in his group of contacts. Hopefully it will be saved.
  3. Anyone know where this is being advertised?
  4. Quality. I fucking love Sciroccos. Must definitely have one some day - luckily Mrs Rod/b likes them too so I might just about get away with it.
  5. https://www.standard.co.uk/hp/front/driver-killed-as-gwiz-is-cut-in-half-in-collision-6525834.html
  6. Wasn’t someone here looking for one?
  7. If this isn’t a scam this has got be the bargain of the century https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/305665807950189/?
  8. Wow, you got a lot done in 15 minutes!
  9. You’d get the buttresses off of an XJS and make it into a El Jagmino though, surely?
  10. I still cant decide whether the Datsun 120Y trims are cool or dreadful.
  11. Yeah, mine had about 1cm of play at the wheel when mine went home. I checked them after I spun the car on a mini roundabout completely without warning, the back just let go. Get the back up on stands and give the wheels a good tug and shove - any lateral play and they’re shot. I got mine done in Rayleigh by a Metro specialist but that was 20-odd years ago now - I’d be very surprised if they were still going!
  12. Check the radius arm pivots and bearings if you’re getting clunks from the back of the Metro. If they haven’t been regularly greased they can get very loose and in a worse-case wear the holes in the mounts oval - eventually giving some unintended rear end steering…* There are repair kits available, or new radius arms are still can be had.
  13. Aren’t you going to shower the car in weld splats?
  14. I’d take a guess that they’re virtually unobtainable - can’t be many diesel manual Caravans.
