Can I have a Pea pls Bob? *08.11.13* fucked.

Recommended Posts

My compulsive infatuation with purchasing sub £400 motor vehicles was being held at bay with regular visits to the psychiatrist and prescription medication.

 

But then I forgot to take one of my pills.

 

 

And my click finger suffered a Grimtree twitch.

 

Which then bore fruit. Or in this case, a vegetable.

 

 

Behold!

 

Barry (the) Shit Pea!

Its a K11 Micra (obviously).

 

Of the slightly more racey 1.3 si facelift persuasion.

 

 

 

77 Thousand english miles have been traversed, and it has been brutally sodomised by a bigger boy.

Poorly arse + extra bits^

 

 

It came with a fully functioning spare wheel well, and a glove box for storing racsist nationalism.

It does have an engine where the engine should be, which seems to function as an engine should.

Though it does loose points for having the battery secured by the lace from a football boot, and a screen wash filler cap made from roller up toilet paper.

The sills are have only just begun the transition from being covered in green, to being covered in brown and remain solid against even the most enthusiatic poke.

However, the front crossmember seems to be past its best.

 

Fine from above.

But sadly not from below:

Looks worse in real life. I couldnt get decent pics as I didnt want to lie in a puddle very much.

 

Do any of the AS mot testers deem front crossmembers "testable" an K11s?

I'd be interested to know.

 

 

It also has a gaudy interior.

Seems reasonable for the money paid.

 

 

Unless its been Cat D'd.

Can any AS member with free access to checking services be a kind soul and run the number?

I would reward you with massive kharma boosts.

 

 

Thats about it for now.

 

 

Mot looms on Friday.

 

 

Shall update if anyone is interested.

 

 

 

Back in the yard for now little veg-er-table car.

That looks like a bit of fun!  I love the colour.  1.3 should be more or less the engine I have in the Cherry, shouldn't it?  You won't be disappointed with it for short-distance work.

 

Not sure. Wouldnt have thought so though. Isnt the CG13DE 16V?

I thought it debuted in the Micra. Could be wrong though.

Looks well perky does that Bazza.

I'd say your member is a fail (fnar) but not a great ball-ache to fix.

 

Is it just me, or does anyone elses computer freeze up when loading a page with loads of pics from Shitpeas?

Are the images MEGA high resolution or summert?

The guy I rent my garage off maintains pretty much the whole old giffer fleet of the town so he gets loads of these in and I recon I've seen 3-4 fail on the front cross member in the last couple of years. You can buy that panel, I think its about 70 quid. You can just cut the bit out, trim the repair panel and weld it in it didn't look too hard,

I'm a big fan of the K11, I was looking for one before the Acclaim but they seem to fetch silly money still, Mrs T used to have a P reg 1.3 GX and that was bloody fast, much quicker off the lights than my Escort 1.6i Zetec at the time.

I have shown colleagues pics of the underside. The prevailing notion is that the sills are toast.

 

I disagree.

 

I say they have at least one mot in them without Fettling.

 

A wager has been made.

 

If it doesn't fail on sills, I win a free windscreen washer fluid Resevoir cap.

 

Bring on the test.

 

Hillarious update due Friday.

Well. The battery is dead. Absolutely dead.

 

Nothing else for it but to bodge the Sunny battery in for the mottt tomorrow morning, even though its to large, and the clamp doesnt fit :-?

 

 

I deem this to be SECURE!!!!
