  1. Too much sensibleness. This is Autoshite.. You only live once- and it can be a short span If partner lets you....- go for it.
  2. Had it happen to me, similarly. it was steel wheel nuts on an alloy wheel fitment. Seems to chamfer is wrong and unwinds. New set of studs and the correctly angled nuts sorted it.
  3. 7 to date. I wish they’d concentrate on the stuff I put in April, May, June - rather than generating this nonsense.
  4. France probably. Depends on the mot..
  5. Yup. Bloody Launceston. Drives nice, mind. MOT Wednesday - see how rotten it is then.
  6. Looks very like my old Strada cabrio. Quirky, fun. I still have the cabrio roof cover, if you want it.? Downside is it’s white ( came with the car, forgot to pass it on)
  7. Baines make extrusions for bulk sale - although they will sell individual lengths. But they have no clue what it’s being fitted too. I used a catalogue to match, or sent a small sample for matching. They had no clue what is was being used for. At one time I was buying so much their Sales rep came to see me- somewhat bemused that I wasn’t commercial. ive had no call to use them for several years, but expect they are still there. Good stuff, too - always solved the problems mentioned., and pliable years on.
  8. C O H Baines are rubber extrusion suppliers. Still in biz last time I checked. Damn good, too!
  9. Immerse it completely in. a trough of diesel for around a week That’ll free it off - without further damage. Or it’s borked . Either way, youll know where you stand. Total outlay.? 10 litres of derv, that can go thru a motor later
  10. I was “ lucky” enough to drive one of these, when nearly new. Several were purchased by the Electricity Council, of which I was a ‘ valued’ employee. I used to motorcycle in from Surrey everyday, Sumer or Winter, so was asked if I wanted to take one home for the weekend -& detail my experiences. Guess they felt I was hardy/ street wise enough! The A3, on a Friday afternoon - was not a pleasant experience. It was dangerously slow, rattled & banged like a kit car, ventilation was dire and I was properly concerned for my safety, several times. It’s instrumentation was
  11. Old trucks can be shit, Boll. I had similar problems with my Zuk pickup - eventually sorted slowly by my kids (under tuition); terrifying at times. We built a scaffold platform for ease of access|| I doubt most screen fitters skills, frankly. I know that a national chain has broken 3 out 4 Espero screens whilst fitting. Each time a different fella, all promising easy job etc. 2 tried to tell me the car must be asccident damaged \(it isn't) Hateful process.
  12. Fun. I have a shed full of useles shit for my Sana - so if I’ve something you need- you’re welcome. Switches, hoses, brakes hubcaps etc etc etc. No tailgates, mind - think you’ll need to find someone in Serbia for that.
  13. I've several 1.4's in Bravas, Bravo's, Tipo's etc. They all seem fine to me Prefer the 2.0 (hgt) though, unsurprisingly...
  14. Just need adjusting mate. Loosen the screw- they will snap together (springy steel) . Stick a bit of cardboard in the gap -to space them (its a Ford -the gap isn't critical) then tighten down. remove cardboard. Jobbed 2 mins
