Mahoosive autojumble not far from Caen/Dieppe 2019

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm still looking for the Rancho bulkhead spotlights. 

 

If you could keep an eye out that'd be grand.

 

Thanks in advance.

I’m sorted for spotlights (sorry I didn’t turn out to have decent spare spares for you Holbeck) but some Rancho sill repair panels or roof rack tubes would go down a treat.

 

In fact any Rancho bits, really, except wheels. Got wheels.

 

 

Oh, and a Renault 16 brake light switch please.

 

Thanks!

That sounds interesting. I could do with a pair of front wings for my DS and I'm off work that week.

Last one I went to had plenty of good used DS wings. There was one stall displaying new wings, doors, bonnets, looked like you could build a whole DS from what they were showing. They could well be at this event.

I thought I'd add the poster, 250 stalls does sound like a lot...

 

I wonder if there will be anyone selling Norev diecast :-)?

Yes there will :)   Don't expect rock bottom prices though. If you do come don't be all British and not haggle over prices.

What's the part number on the R16 switch ?  Not sure on Rancho bits, but if I spot a Rancho specific dealer I'll get their details.

Don’t worry about the R16 brake pedal switch, thanks, when I looked for part numbers it turns out they’re readily available from Franzose.de. But contact details for a Rancho specialist would be A-MAZE-ING.

 

If you go, that is - no obligation obvs. You’re a gent for offering.

Still looking for round triangley roof light ?

 

I do indeed. This time hopefully myself.

 

On a different note, since the R16 may* be fully occupied, I had concerns regarding available space for hauling stuff back in sufficient quantities,

such as doors, wings, wine, Gauloises and most of all, warped French plastic in daft colours,

until Ghosty came up with the solution - why not borrow the roofrack I flogged to fellow R16 brother in arms Crooner of this parish.

 

Thank you, Ghosty.

 

However, I wouldn't be a true GGG member, if I didn't say that we will acquire a roofrack at the venue, should the requirement arise.

 

For the uninitiated not living in the parallel universe of R16 ownership, due to it's roof design and lack of gutters, only a bespoke R16 roofrack can be utilised.

Sodding hell I'm a dolt! It just didn't register!!!! Now working out if I have munchkin or not - so how much place I'll have in the car!!!!

Sorry for stupidity (and fatigue I have to say - this heat I'm getting a couple of hours a night at the minute....)

 

Shall be there with bells on.... thanks for the heads up.

 

EDIT - If anyone can't make it and I can snaffle anything - they can sit with me in Brussels until I come over to UK next time via Eurostar - they're getting used to me lugging parts back n forth.....

If anything Cit CX S2-related shows up, I'm interested. Particularly the triple LCD display that sits above the centre console. Also an offside bi-optic headlamp with clean internal reflectors (yes I know it'll be LHD, but it's the reflectors I'm interested in, not the outer lens)....

I've found DFDS from newhaven to dieppe to be the best service to that area. Roughly five hours crossing time.

 

We'll deliver you to that ferry, drive to Dover, take the ferry to Calais and drive down to pick you up from that ferry.

      It didn't happen last year because I wasn't fit enough.  This year, and on the wave of having done Inverness for Christmas, I'm feeling up to a south-coast trip again.  This of course means there will be the usual Shiters' lunch meet at the burger van on Portsdown Hill, most likely on Wednesday May 13th.  I'll be in the wheelchair bus, sorry; MrsR has vetoed taking Hairy Pussy even before I've got it home.
      We will also be stopping each way at a Travelodge or Premier Inn somewhere in the Midlands, so there might be an opportunity for a Midlands Massiv Meet too.  Or even two of them!  It worked well enough at Cumbernauld!

      Happy to update the polls with any suggestions!

      For the first time this year we were actually able to attend this show. It's only 8 miles from home but in previous years we'd always managed to avoid finding out about it until a few days afterwards A free event in the Market Square and High Street, there were probably about 150 cars there including a lot I hadn't seen before, so here's some highlights.

      Hi all,
       
      Bit of a random one but do any Manchester/Derbyshire/South or West Yorkshire based Shiters fancy a meetup sometime in Glossop?
       
      I know it's not exactly a sprawling metropolis but it has a reasonably priced car park, a Wetherspoons, a caff, etc.
       
      Main reason for suggesting it is it's a nice drive in from most directions - over Holme Moss from the North or Snake Pass from Sheffield direction.
       
      The A624 from the south isn't too bad either.
       
      Something like a Thursday evening would be best for me but open to suggestions.
