Semi-C’s Essential Effluent Offload

Recommended Posts

I’m losing the battle of justifying to myself the need for two council lock-ups anymore, especially as only one of them is housing an actual car now.

The reality of this realisation is that a whole host of my stuff must be rehomed, thusly I shall post up the woeful, the dire and the gopping for your delectation and potential purchase.

Here y’are then:

 

4 x LS400 (UCF10) 15 inch wheels with good tyres.

Bought them to beautify my LS (UCF10) but was bereaved to discover that, being the facelift version, it had larger brakes that require the 16 inch wheels. Ratscocks. Sold

 

5 x Mk1 Granada Ghia alloys. £50

Hmmm, are the tyres any good on the Lexus wheels? What size are they if so? Just pondering them for the Camry....

They’re Dunlop SP Sport tyres with plenty of tread on them. I think* they’re 205/65 15 size (forgive my vagueness)

I would have happily used them on my Lexus, sadly I cannot. Almost contemplated sourcing the 1st gen UCF10 brakes/hubs/etc but that’s another story.

Despite the Lexus being RWD and the Camry FWD it looks like they're a complete match. PM incoming.....

Ta very much.

I was about to express regret in missing the Lexus wheels/tyres, as mine are rather corroded, but then realised that as I have the 1998 onwards model - presumably with the larger brakes - I would have suffered the same problem as you. :-D

You *might* need a 5mm spacer, LS's's's's have quite a high offset for a RWD car.

I knew PCD, centre bore etc would be OK, but both are ET45 apparently.

 

Even if there's an issue then the tyres would be of use to me and I'd fit them onto a set of my steels - having to pump up three of them every week gets a bit dull and prevents me using it as much as I should.

 

Anyway, owning a set of wheels might be the first step to Mk1 LS400 ownership......

I’d like the Mk2 Granny wheel arch repair panel please!

 

Thanks.

 

Is postage an option or is it collection only? Which might be awkward depending on whereabouts in E Anglia you are.

Am I glad these apparently don't fit the facelift Mk1, otherwise I'd be really mad now to have missed this.

Skizzer,

 

the granada arch is yours. Ta very much.

 

I’m heading along to Past Parts on Tuesday so am more than happy to fetch the panel along with me to take full advantage of Angrydicky’s collection service, if that’s acceptable for all involved?

 

Postage can be an option too if you like.

 

Cheers.

      From a recent haul. This first lot 50p each + postage. More to come.

      Well, OK, just a few brochures for sale, after having sorted through my pile over Christmas.
       
      The postage price will vary according to weight, so the prices below exclude postage - we'll sort this out in PMs. Obviously, if anyone wants more than one, I'll send them together. All are in excellent condition, with some very minor age related creases.

      EDIT:  4 SAIL see lower down
       
      No collection thread because Jersey and dark when I cycled up the road.

       
       

       


      I think this is the first K11 I’ve driven since I passed my test in an early Super S 24 years ago.
      Its great!!
      The gearbox isn’t shagged yet so hopefully I won’t be the last owner. 
      Needs a good clean up though. More photos to follow when I’ve done that.

      Being two of the resident American-auto lickers on here, danthecapriman and I have been having some PM chatter about possibly going abroad and bringing one back.  Here's one that we fancied quite strongly until Dan realised his passport had expired...

      So you see the sort of thing we like!
      Well... then this one appeared in the ebay thread...

      Dan and I discussed it at length (when was the last time you had a PM conversation run to 8 pages?) and decided I should bid on it.  We set a ceiling, because neither of us wanted to be involved in a bidding war even though we would be watching when it ended.
      And we were outbid.  Fair enough.
      Then I got a Second Chance Offer.  Winning bidder turned up, declared it wasn't for him, and scarpered.  The seller liked the car so much he almost didn't send me the Offer, and when it took me a while to reply (consulting with Dan) he almost wanted me to turn it down so he could keep it.  But I didn't.  Consultation showed that we both still thought it was a good buy, so I accepted.  Arrangements had to be made, money drawn, directions printed, etc etc.
      So yesterday my friend Roger arrived, a mere three hours later than we had arranged.  Immediately he declared his 2006 Fabia wasn't well and he didn't fancy it all the way to Derby and, crucially, back.  So ok, we went in my Saab.  He liked that, a lot.  Derby is almost 200 miles from Barrow, in case you wanted to know.  You know what my Saab looks like so you don't need pics of that stage of the trip.
      So, here we are at the seller's farm.

      Let's take a minute to explore some of his other toys...









      ...and believe me, these are only highlights!
      So, now let's look at the Cadillac in a bit more detail...












      Don't worry, I do have the bonnet mascot!  Seller removed it at my suggestion, because the car will live outside on the street.  I don't want to lose the ornament!
      So, we set off to drive home, after one of the compulsory-element pics...

      Seller directed us to a gas station and a chippy...


      (I might cross-post that one to Cars AndGirls...)  The girl in the white shirt is one of the chippy staff, she just couldn't get enough of the car!  I took a load of pics on her phone of her sitting in it, admiring it from outside... then finally we could have our tea and get back on the road.  We stopped at a couple of services, not least because driving at night with no instrument lighting is pretty stressful!  Especially when you have motorway roadworks for mile after mile, with a 50 limit and cameras.

      So we finally arrived in Barrow at 1.00am, having listened to Ken Bruce covering the Eurovision most of the way up.  Yes, the Cadillac has its original factory AM/FM radio, and it works!
      This morning I thought I'd better do something about the lack of door-locking, that the seller pointed out to me.  The car has 4 keys, all slightly different!  One for trunk, one for ignition... er...
      A little consultation with Dan brought forth the suggestion that the power-lock actuators might be at fault, and upon dismantling the driver's door, this was indeed the case.

      I disconnected the actuator from the lock and all was well.  One of the "other" keys was found to fit the doors, so now I can lock and unlock them manually.  Good enough.  When I took my dog out, I couldn't resist grabbing this shot...

      And then I decided it needed a clean, so I swept it out, found a carpet offcut for the trunk, and washed the thing.  It does look better.

      Several of my neighbours have come to have a look, and gone away impressed.
       
      What happens now?  Well the immediate plan is just that I should (and will!) drive it, as much as possible given that I don't have anywhere off-road to keep it.  This is at least partly why we went for a mechanically-sound car (which it certainly seems to be) with cosmetic issues.  One worries less about a fresh ding, you know.... To this end I'll be going to work in it tomorrow, and stopping at the Post Office on the way home to get the tax in my name.  This car is the right side of 40 years old, so I get free tax.  Lovely!
      What happens in the further-distance remains to be seen.
