  1. Thanks for saving this as overall it's a decent car. Hopefully it won't need much for a new ticket in October. It isn't entirely watertight though...in the next downpour you might notice a moist passenger carpet. I sealed up the satanroof, but it could be the door seal that's the problem. But at the end of the day who cares, so long as it runs!
  2. Where's the auction place?
  3. Mind you, a few people did help him push it to one side.
  4. I'm surprised there weren't more FTPs in the queue. I offered to tow the Avenger that conked out on the access road (he was up that sloped part), but by the time I reached him it started up again. No other sod offered, and he was at least ten cars in front of me.
  5. Great boost to the mojo, isn't it. Although we're still in that post-show danger area where the eBay searches are being hit hard. After seeing the wonderfully blue interior of @Kiltox's Mk3 Astra I'm wavering... Nice Rover products BTW.
  6. A week day evening? Mine's running at the moment. Not sure how long that'll last mind...
  7. Blimey that sounds a bit of an effort. Maybe I was lucky with my manifold replacement then. Although I'm not entirely convinced the new but used replacement doesn't have a crack somewhere.
  8. There was a Bristol and an Interceptor there this year. Yet @RoadworkUK had to plead his case for his lovely 306. Very odd.
  9. Didn't realise you were there either. Would've been good to catch up. Hope you're keeping well!
  10. Those words are all too familiar to me. Hope you managed to sort it.
  11. Possibly. I'm a skinny fecker with glasses, and had a beige shirt on today.
  12. Plus yours has one of the best velour interiors I've ever come across, so to speak.
  13. For one day in my life I thought I'd feel special. But three of the buggers at the same event...
  14. Email it to me if you like @wuvvumand I'll do as Ghosty suggested. Although no aunts involved in this instance.
  15. Most of what I do is trial and error. Just so happened that was a good day.
  16. I thought my hoses would be, but fortunately not. With the cylinders removed I just pumped loads of brake fluid through, catching any shite in an old washing up bowl. This was after I'd replaced the master cylinder and fashioned some new brake pipes. All in all quite a satisfying job! Hopefully having brakes will now stop me driving it into a garage wall again...roll eyes emoji.
  17. Could be the case that both rear cylinders on the Innocenti are blocked, or just generally fucked. I had a similar problem on the Morris, where just a dribble of fluid would come out when using my eezibleed. Took a pair of new cylinders to resolve it, so not a big deal really.
  18. Grecian columns the size of pylons and a fuggin' chandelier hanging outside above the front door are also LoL worthy.
  19. HG fixing hero. Good to see you earlier Wuv, and @trigger too. This was gr9. I think it'd been sat an hour or so, yet still stank of dizzle. Marvellous. I took the ex-HMC S124. Here it is down by the marina.
  20. Seller might just had his local garage reset them for the MOT and they stay off long enough to get through? Probably yes, the MoT was last November.
  21. Yes, together with an injector error too. I'm just ignoring both. Seller said the latter has been there a while, so I'll play error message roulette until the summer is over then it's a case of 'see ya!'. Or sooner of course, depending how things go.
  22. Yep it's electric. I might remove the switch and give it a blast of contact cleaner, although I'm not sure that's wise. I'd rather it didn't work at all than give it the chance to engage randomly at any given moment. Good point, I hadn't thought of that. I'm living dangerously at the moment and haven't got any breakdown cover, as I had to splash out on a normal insurance policy for the Scenic (didn't want their RAC cover option, because the RAC seem shit nowadays). I assume Autoaid are still OK so I'll opt for them. Beige interior was another plus point, even if it was minging. Seat bases still need a go with something.
  23. Bought this last week. Can't bear another summer without AC, so that was pretty much my only requirement. Cheap and not dull as fuck were the others. I decided not to read the horror stories, just making sure the AC was cold and it was being sold by an honest person. It's a 1.9 dCi, handbrake is inop, and all I ask is it lasts until October. That's seem some action but meh. I'll take my chances.
