  1. Lexus RX has unsurpassed giffer access based on my 87 year old father in law being abled to get in and out easily (and I can get in and out easily with a bad back), it comes with the added joy of a V6 pez engine. MPG is horrific.
  2. Fiat 131 Supermirafiori 2.0 estate, twin headlamps in gunmetal grey. It was my mates mums car that she brought from a dodgy 2nd hand car trader on Albion Street in Kettering, it wouldn't idle but the noise from the engine as you progressed in a spirited manner was addictive, my 1.8 CVH Sierra was being used by my girlfriend at the time to take her kids away on Holiday so I offered to Tax the Fiat for 6 months if I could use it for 2 weeks, the Sierra was a disappointment in comparison when I got it back. I've never seen another like it in real life or online searches, not even a picture but it certainly left a lasting memory, she got sick of the crappy idle and scrapped it not long after I'd borrowed it, it was immaculate as well.
  3. Bugger just read this after paypaling you the cash. If it's not gone through then PM me and I'll sort out a bank transfer.
  4. 13 and 33 please. It's by far the best colour Rover produced them in as well, looks a cracking car.
  5. I had the pez 2.0 version of the P100 and it was a proper hoot to drive, drifting everywhere when ever there was any slight moistness on the road surface. I hope you feel better soon and don't have to sell it, it's nice to see a P100 being used as it should be.

    What

    I can recommend the Wera Joker spanners, I've only got a few of them but they are some of the nicest tools I own https://www-de.wera.de/en/great-tools/joker/
  7. Give it a couple of weeks! Seriously a decent sheet of polythene to cover the floor and you can just use your X5, its bigger than almost all estate cars.
  8. Lexus RX300 can fit quite a lot of tat in it. Fill the broken Porsche up with rubbish and get it taken away by the scrap man?
  9. Avon have a new design of tyre that are A rated, I've got the SUV version on my RX, they seem quite good so far, can't comment on how fast they wear out.
  10. That's a decent conversion though. http://www.kapsuzuki4x4.co.uk/kap-landmaster/
  11. 2jz out of an early Lexus GS would be entertaining. The CF would then have more Toyota content than the new Supra....
  12. It's a chemical reaction that to cure properly requires some heat from the exotherm of the reaction, so no it's not going to work when it's cold, most kits have a minimum working temperature (usually 15°C) which you need to adhere to, if it's cold warm the resin and the hardener up above 20°C and it will work but you better work fast as the warmer it is the faster it goes off. The right amount of hardener is really really important and if the kit is really old then there is a good chance the accelerators/curing agents in the resin have lost the will to live, most resins only have an 18 month shelf life at most. You could have got some heat on the part and it probably would have gone off if it hasn't flashed off to much styrene. Polyester resin never really sticks to metal, you rely on a rough surface and a mechanical fixing to surface imperfections and make sure you have given the area a good clean with Acetone to increase the chance of a good bond, if a really good bond is important then use an epoxy. Woven/Twill is good as long as it's not a complicated shape, but if you have compound curves then good CSM will do the job but you will need several layers to get a good job.
  13. SMX, you may have to cultivate a beard to get the full benefit from it though. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-Smx-2-0-petrol-mpv/223288818118?_trkparms=aid%3D333200%26algo%3DCOMP.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20180409081753%26meid%3D56f19d5aa0ae42e992fb21b0132f4237%26pid%3D100008%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D264090503309%26itm%3D223288818118&_trksid=p2047675.c100008.m2219 Corolla estate base, diesel. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201809170573614?price-to=1000&onesearchad=Used&onesearchad=Nearly%20New&onesearchad=New&sort=sponsored&radius=1500&body-type=Estate&advertising-location=at_cars&make=TOYOTA&model=COROLLA&postcode=nn84sl&page=1
  14. I was thinking the same, the IS250 seem to have a manual RWD gearbox, not the most common combination though, plus you would have to use an aftermarket ECU on it as well, the V6 in my RX 300 makes a nice noise when you got it some beans. Awful luck there Colenotdole, but from our point of view it means we get loads more of your quality updates! Are you using one of your Rebels as a daily while this is off the road?
  15. Near to you in Sunny Rochdale https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Honda-accord-3-0ltr-V6-coupe-1998/332930321841?hash=item4d84318db1:g:I-MAAOSw19dcCTi1:rk:15:pf:0
