  1. I think les Flics would be VERY worried if they knew what da Brits make their Jambon out of. Sounds like I may have to leave my employment (again) if it business as usual. Moor postings please.
  2. Would you write the Covid + Brexit + customs da da da stuff in case anyone* else is missing driving on the wrong side of the road?
  3. I got some super old bit of Ex-DoctorRetro chod / Carina2 to do a few trips as the previous AX was impossible for slightly elderly gentlefolk to into the back of. Inn-Sewer-Ants company Lancaster refused to insure the 30 yearold Toyota so needed to find another 'Ants company. Got a quote for £86 but there's also £40 cashback so a years comprehensive is £46. I've not seen anything that low for years and years - What's going on?
  4. Sir Are you interested in a noisy white floppy top 205 CJ with updated digital rad fan control ?
  5. Not sure how but I got £87.49 for a year then additional £40 cashback. I did try to get "The Pope" addded as an additional driver (he's unlikely to complain) but under "title" there was no "Pope" option.
  6. No, it's still where it should be in the middle of the bonnet but he hasn't noticed it.
  7. DO NOT* pop it under a seat on an Easygit Aeroplane.
  8. Hi, If you don't want the AX I'll willingly bring the Carina back as all I wanted was something to give a few lifts to people who couldn't contort enough to get into the back seats of a smoll 2 door car and you seemed to want rid of the Carina ?
  9. So due to supply chain issues we are advised to use parts from used vehicles. What a bizarre idea, it'll never catch on here. https://www.msn.com/en-gb/money/other/can-repairing-cars-with-green-used-parts-save-money-and-time-online-giant-ebay-joins-forces-with-insurers-to-help-battle-the-supply-chain-crunch/ar-AAOfv7K
  10. I blame* you and your Enfield 80000 (other zeros are available) for my application and this subsequent rejection. Dear Applicant, Thank you for applying for the position of Special Scientist (FOSS2021SS-03) at the FOSS Research Centre for Sustainable Energy of the University of Cyprus. We have completed the evaluation of applications and we would like to inform you that unfortunately you have not been selected for this post. Overall, there has been a strong interest for this position from a number of good candidates. We take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in joining our research activities at FOSS and hope to collaborate with you in the future for another opening. Sincerely, Prof. George E. Georghiou Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Cyprus
  11. You've got a massive Citroen H van there.
  12. If my faded memory works the little slide switch under the dash should operate a light - if you look to the right of it you'll see a hole - there should be a smoll light bulb which shines through the hole.
  13. I cannot recommend anything but if you are a adult then you make your own decisions AND take responsibility for those decisions, like getting an ex-military vehicle and doing stuff with it - at some point (in my personal opinion) it's not too important if you are in possession of the correctly authorised paperwork as a scrap of paper does not make you competent nor safe. Trying to escape an approaching storm whilst carrying explosives off road in a 6x6 camper for instance unfortunately using an expired driving licence. I can suggest NOT watching Eastenders (other enders are available).
  14. I can tell you the 6cy SA Landrovers go well in Botswana/Namibia Kalahari and have a strong following in SA, Botswana, Namabia and what used to be Zim etc. Probably easier to sell over there, and no transport hassle, as people know what they are, know their issues and bits/mods are available. Nostalgic masochists still use them for "outback trips" and there's probably safari companies buying/using (in non covid times).
  15. Kyburz electric vehicles | Switzerland
  16. Why would it need to come to the UK for an MOT ? KPD 67K is over 40 years old and taxed till next year. https://vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk/VehicleFound?locale=en
  17. CZ (477?) parts available, I need to check what the carbs are, one of the rear sprockets is spoken for (if it fits).
  18. I used to have a class 2 racing hovercraft, if you've never driven/flown one on land and water (places like Weston Park or obscure bits near Poole) you need to stick it on your bucket list.
  19. 80 ish available. How many do want?
  20. Thanks, Sent them message though the tow rope suggests it may have some FTP.
  21. If you go by Diag 2 then 4 pairs of 2 (6v) batteries connected like that should all discharge at the same rate so no battery swapping - however as the batteries will all be slightly different in charging/discharging efficiency it makes sense to occasionally charge all the batteries separately to bring them all to 100%. (if you go to modern battery packs they usually have internal electronic control which automatically monitors and controls each cell) I'd initially ignore basically Diag1 as it's lights etc and pull all the fuses so you can get just the motor and control functioning reliably, in the UK it'd be possible to get an MOT without lights.
