  2. @eddyramrod.. "those "decent roads" are surprisingly sparse! If you can find one, it's at least half an hour away, full of cyclists, tourists or tractors, and very likely littered with roadworks". As WVM I used to 'do' Barrow every so often ๐Ÿ™„. Newcastle/Penrith/M6/and across. If I was feeling chilled/time spare = Carlisle then Workington and down, could properly wind it up down the coast [*tractors allowing ๐Ÿ˜‰] ...... It is a Long, LONG way.... ๐Ÿ‘

  11. ..... Speaking of Water Companies ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. South Shields had piped water mains 'non fluoridated'.... North Shields had it 'fluoridated'. Health statisticians have taken such a closely/divided population, and extrapolated dental health/lack of... from this fact. *I'm from South Shields ๐Ÿ˜•
  12. 'not able to *operate clutch'... 'clutch *borked'... A sea of difference = but not if you cannot fix it ๐Ÿ˜• BonChance ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ’จ
  13. My 'totally embarrassing ' fail vs. Oil filter ๐Ÿคฆ ... was resolved by my m9, the oily spanner, just around the corner. No charge = box of bikkies from me (.. and everlasting shame!) Good to have a line into a friendly garage (* price are negotiable ๐Ÿ˜‰) ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ’จ
  14. RESULT ๐Ÿ˜ฏ I wouldn't use the lamp output for 'lamping' rabbits.... but I'd happily plough into off-road forest to go lamping, with these new candles ๐Ÿ‘. ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ’จ
  15. MOT trail as unsullied as a maidens wossname ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽˆ Creamed It ๐Ÿ˜Ž ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ’จ

  17. ..... a kwik tour, collecting supplies >>>
  18. Hmm... As reported earlier, well actually in my Swift thread, 'foggy plastic lenses' are making the (now the clocks have changed) lights on MrGetz... literally $hite ๐Ÿ˜ฎ. I'm planning a home-brewed polish mix and we will *see how it works ๐Ÿ‘+ new 'nightbreakers' (never got round to fitting in SuzyQ). ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ’จ
  19. My 'Korean Washing Machine' is performing admirably... I liked the idea of a Getz... Bought one... Liking the *experience ๐Ÿฅฐ *some people's expectations, Vs mine, may vary ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

  21. Gromit leaks..... My Savvy had the same on top of hatch aperture (wiper wiring/washer tube route) = black gunk *Black car ๐Ÿ™„ Brand New ๐Ÿคฌ... Gromit 'rattling fit' in hole. *Deliberately avoided 'free warranty' dealer interface = fixed right & 1st time ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  22. There has been hellish banging of pipework/ladders in yard/'boiler-safe' van in back lane = to reckon a new combi has gone in for our upstairs neighbours (+ a shite white smallbore pipe has been run above our kitchen window & cut into their kitchen sink/w.mach down pipe ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™ˆ) She doorstepped me today and warned "... mind the backboiler still has to come out!" ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ ALSO.... "We have leak in the felt/flat roof & roofer said 'fkt M9! @ยฃ7.5k' " ๐Ÿ˜ฏ Shared leasehold/both own each flat = shared bills...... ?
  23. @privatewire.. "Looking forward to seeing the end result though!" ... yeah, if it looks *totally naff it will be a lot of effort (&ยฃ42!) for the bin๐Ÿ˜• *SavvTotalTasteBypassยฎ should ensure it an unlikely outcome ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ
  24. Well.... Good to see everyone's curiosity burning away here ๐Ÿ™„.. I will take the lid and cut it off, into a square piece, then chop out a 'letterbox' = equal to the high section of ally casting, sticking up from the foot. I will tape the tin plate close to the profile of the foot with gorilla tape.... I will then hacksaw the alloy [sticking through] into a sequence of slices/cut sequentially across horizontally... the tinplate will *guarantee I don't cut into the foot profile & ruining the finish ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ‘ A smidge of Dremel action will reduce any bobbles to a 100% flat plain face, and I may use the existing tapped holes for the securing Csk screws, holding the mounting flat face plate.... We Will See ..... ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™‰๐Ÿ™Š ๐Ÿš™๐Ÿ’จ
  25. I am eyeing a biscuit tin lid..... But Why? Anyone have a guess why that might be useful to me ๐Ÿค” I shall drop a BIG clue.... Hmmm ๐Ÿ˜
