  1. My lad has just sorted out his Xbox one and look what car he bought me Handles just like the real thing when I'm in charge!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. The implication in your posts is that the 28DL forum membership are all thieves & pikeys, breaking in & loading up the swagbag, and that is misleading bullshit. I haven't denied that the forum has it's bad apples, but your statement encompas's the entire membership & it's simply not accurate. Maybe I'll accuse you & some of your mates of being thieves and see how you like.
  3. flat Dr Pepper & a big bag of low-quality onion rings. Works a treat, IMO. My grump is the new brake flexi for the Fiat turned up today but Im in tatters today with some sort of lurgy and unable to take advantage of my last day to fit and go for a blat. Even watching endless top gear on Dave is failing to keep me awake
  4. I fancy this too, which firm did you do with?
  5. This is what he posted, garbaldy:- And it's bullshit. They (and that includes me) are not very light-fingered. LP is posting his usual misleading bullshit to claim that the whole forum are thieves. People have used photo's on there to identify places and then go and steal stuff, that's very different. LP has a habit of posting misleading statements to support his views. There may well be one or two bad apples amongst that forums membership (as there probably are here) but I'll repeat, I've never seen it happen and it's bullshit to post this:-
  6. I've been out with a fair few of the members on there who are local and never seen any of them take anything. Hence calling you a bullshitter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Went to buy some bugs fir my Dragon earlier and this one had gone free range Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Calling bullshit on that. Trespassing yes, but bullshit to the theft Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I've been a member on there for years, the long timers' attitude towards theft from sites that are visited mirrors that shown here. Unfortunately, pictures shown on the public forum have been used to identify locations and subsequently stuff has gone missing. The bulk of that forum are no more light-fingered than we are. Couple of bad apples, etc
  10. quicker and easier to turn every road into an 8 lane super highway #welshpavingisforwinnerz
  11. It's a very good point. Certain stuff will always sell, and fairly easily too. JM, Dan and Eddy plus the other yankophiles will have their own spin, but I would suggest Tri-Chevs, good honest muscle (not necessarily restored, just honest cars), 50's station wagons, 49-51 Mercs, early 50's pick-up. Quite easy to move on swiftly, and make a few quid too. But importing a car isn't an expensive process, as a rule of thumb I would add $1000 to £1500 to the US$ sale price of the car you have bought. That figure includes the physical act of shipping, getting it from the vendor to the boat, the paperwork at both ends. So buying and shipping a car yourself can be much cheaper than buying one that someone else has shipped in to sell on. Plus you get what you want, rather than getting what is for sale. So, in my case, at US$2750 plus £1100 shipping, by the time it was parked on my driveway, the Galaxie stood me at just under £3k and was just about a bargain. Selling it for a profit (despite it's rarity) is another matter.
  12. you will need my new roads to get to your airports, #buysharesinTaffsTarmac
  13. Yup, I (for reasons I no longer remember) once swapped Mk2 units plus the grill into my Mk3
  14. I hate mornings and wish I was still drunk
  15. This is so simple. Start building at Southampton, head north until you get to the Scottish coast at Durness, 8 lanes all the way and as close to perfectly straight as possible. Fuck whatever is in the way, this is progress and YOU can't stop it. Every 25 miles, have a junction with a 3 lane motorway going off at right angles and heading for the coast. Sorted, next.
  16. Oi, Ramrod, there is a perfectly desirable '59 yank-tank on the forum... I'm a 1970 kinda-guy, so it's easy. Mk1 Escort, namely this one

  18. can't post up pics, sadly, but I might buy this just cos I can http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VW-polo-11-months-MOT-Spares-or-Repairs/272081993133?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D33196%26meid%3D769206cdd6fa4637b4e1f3f3af72588b%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D262195236874
  19. I think Station is onto something. I had a natter with the local F specalist about mine, asked what to check for, keep an eye on, dreaded HGF etc. He reckoned that it was rarely the HG that went. Now, he reckons that the cooling on the K series is "lean", he described it as maybe 10% wriggle-room if the system isn't looked after properly. He went on the say that this was when the K was out in front of a car, hanging there in the breeze. Not when you stick it in an enclosed metal box at the back. So, his advice to me, with a K-series engine (in an MGF in my case) and no history whatsoever:- Check the rad. Make sure it's unblocked, undamaged. Replace if in doubt, standard radiator is more than adequate. Check the hoses & clips for damage and leaks Check the metal full coolant pipes for evidence of corrosion. Stainless replacements are available but realistically, new mild steel ones are adequate and last a mere 15 years if looked after. Check the OAT, keep it topped up with the correct stuff. Change annually Bleed the system correctly, do not cut corners on this bit Keep an eye on it. A quick glance under the car for drips and check the level when you are in the boot. I've done all that (he bled the system for me) and mine seems fine. It even drinks a bit, about 100ml a month, but shows no sign of deteriation. I hadn't seen this thread before, I note it's been ongoing for a few years now. Seems a shame to have killed the car for the sake of a radiator.

  21. I am reliably informed* that this approach to repairs makes you 84% more attractive to the opposite sex
  22. If it's just a short-term "asthetic" solution you are after, lob the good panels on and paint the whole car with emulsion of your choice, using a roller and 3" brush for the fine detail. This approach may* need occasional touch ups to keep it at a good standard
