  1. And the fully working electric aerial !
  2. It's ok Ben,it's an older car and if they hadn't explained it to me i wouldn't have known it. Relaxed motoring ahead,when they delivered it back they were impressed how well it drove--and they drive all sorts of cars.
  3. The little Mazda has just been returned to me after much fettling by the boys at the garage,new cambelt and tensioners,new water pump, new rocker cover gasket and auxiluary belts. The old belt was very slack due to a failing tensioner so i can now drive it without playing roulette and without the r/c gasket leaking. They also fitted new rear roll bar bushes and drop links so less rattling now. They also renewed the coolant and done a level check as well. I only had to pay labour as all parts except the water pump and coolant were very kindly supplied with the car when i purchased it from
  4. I was half interested in that when it was advertised months ago but then the seller decided he was going to keep it forever---obviously not.

  7. East Kent Trim Supplies are 5 minutes from me if you need anything collected from them.
  8. As my Saab is in the garage having a new alternator fitted,the Mazda got pressed into service today for the first time since i purchased it earlier in December. An essential journey was required so it started first time as one would expect and off i went to deliver the parts required for the Saab. The lads at the garage were quite taken with the little Japanese car so arrangements were made to finally fit a new cambelt,tensioners and water pump to take the guesswork out of has it been changed or not! Next job will be to change the rear droplinks and roll bar bushes as it certainly clatter
  9. Welcome back Skizzer--Merry Christmas!
