Could do with some advice, Exiled_Tat_Gatherer related

Recommended Posts

So I’ve held off here for a month now but I’m stuck and need advice.

 

Some of you might remember I had a Golf Turbo estate for sale in Jan. Well I sold it to Exiled_Tat_Gatherer and he paid for it with the intention of collection.

 

But, I haven’t had a message off him in nearly 4 weeks now and I’ve messaged loads. I’ve phoned him and got voicemail. Now I’m not trying to muddy the lads credibility at all, he’s done his bit but I’m worried about not being able to get in touch.

 

He’s in Belgium and intended to fly over and collect. I’m aware he bought numerous other cars off here and wanted to collect them all in a oner but he’s now not posted in ages.

 

What the hell do I do? I really need the car shifting but he’s paid for it. I can’t store it forever and I’m still paying tax on it so it can be legal for him to collect.

 

Really stuck. Any advice appreciated. I’m erring towards selling it on and refunding him if I can get hold of him but don’t want to be the arsehole.

 

Sorry if this isn’t the way to do things but I’m really at a loss.

When I posted this I had a bit of regret because - to repeat- I don’t want this to turn into a ‘he’s done something wrong’ thread.

 

If anyone can pm me his fb I’d appreciate it. All I have is name and phone number.

 

Just want to get it sorted, I was worried he’d died or something :/

He was away on holiday I think. He's around again now - he posted on the open forum on Tuesday - but I wouldn't be surprised if he's staying away for a bit because of the current "situation" - he wouldn't be the only one.

Regardless the situation on here, he could still make contact and arrange to collect the car that someone else is storing and taxing on his behalf for 4+ weeks, no?

The impression I got from him (he's planning on using the golf to collect a loads of air tools and bikes from me) was that his aim was to collect it this weekend.

 

I also haven't heard anything since before his jollies, not that I'm blaming the lad, I simply mean to point out that he's clearly putting a complex plan together

Where are you? I say this because if your local i might be able to move it out your way.

 

I moved a car for him a little while ago. He lost his passport for a short period.

 

He won’t forget you.

 

I have him on whatsapp...

I’m in Helensburgh near Glasgow :/

Just a little worried for him..seems a decent sort, and he's pretty much paid for the Granvia.

 

this, exactly this. I have absolutely no problems with him other than the lack of comms but it all seems a bit 'off', just hoping hes not dead or in jail

I sold the E36 323 touring to him and he did come over and get it...so he does make good on his word! Obviously not a huge help to those waiting but thought I'd say.

 

Likewise-he bought our MR2 off us, paid promptly and collected it in December with no hassles.

      Welcome one and all to the new home of average transport.
      Most of the forum will work exactly how you expect it to, but there's a few differences which will hopefully make your life easier. We'll add to this first post as other things become apparent or we find new options, seriously it's like getting out of a Fiesta Bonus and into a Sierra Ghia with all these new buttons.
       
      Reading posts
      You can hover over a thread title to see a pop-up and choose either first post, or latest post to quickly preview it without clicking into it As before, you can click the star or circle to the left of a thread title (star is if you've participated, circle for threads you've only read) to go straight to the unread post  
      Composing posts
      If you want to only quote a few words from someone else's post, just highlight the words with your cursor in their post and you'll get a "Quote" popup rather than having to quote the whole lot and delete the extra test (Thanks Stanky!) Tags and Prefixes are somewhat different to the old version! A "Prefix" is what appears at the start of the topic title on the forum, and tags appear at the end You start by entering one or more tags. Seperate them by just pressing enter to finish that tag and start a new one. You can then optionally choose one of them to be the prefix by selecting it in the drop-down Default behaviour seems to be that it will automatically select the first tag as  the prefix, so it appears twice. Looks crap but it's a "feature" for now. Deselect it if you want....  
      Image linking and embedding
      You now don't need [ img ] tags around pictures from elsewhere on the web. Simply paste an address that ends in .jpg or .png etc and it will automatically embed it If the image address doesn't end in .jpg or .png try clicking the "Insert other media" button below the text entry field and paste the address in there. When using the file uploader to embed your own photos from your computer, you can just drag them onto the bar below the text entry area. Once you've done that you can click the plus icon on the photo to embed it anywhere in the post (put your cursor where you want it to go first) If you've already used an image somewhere, it doesn't need to be reuploaded. Click "insert other media" and choose "existing attachment" to browse all the images you've ever uploaded. If you don't want the image embedded inline, you can press ctrl-Z to undo (or use the link that appears at the bottom of the compose window saying "use link instead" for a few seconds after it embeds) and it will go back to the old behaviour with just the address of the image  
      Searching
      To find your own content, instead of “My Content” you can use “Search My Activity” which is at the top right of the forum. It’s sort of notifications and all sorts rolled into one but there’s Posts and Topics as sections in the left hand menu Tags and prefixes are clickable to search for other similar content. If you click on Activity on the main menu, there's a detailed search for your own content, member lists (separate tab) etc.  
      Signatures, Display Name, Email address
      Click your username at the top right corner, and select "Account Settings" Edit your signature, display name or email address there. You can also turn off seeing other people's signatures Note signatures don't display on mobile devices to avoid taking up too much room  
      Reactions
      The "like" button is gone, and Reactions are here instead. You've got like, thanks, sad and confused.  No, you can't like your own posts  
      Notifications
      The forum seems to default to "Follow topics I reply to" which is the same as Old Autoshite, however.... The default behaviour is also to email you notifications. Oh no! That's a lot of emails..... Click the Notification Bell at the top right, and choose Notification settings. The four options for notification frequency let you summarise things into one email. The top option doesn't specifically say "emails" as the type of notification can be controlled in the next step. Scroll down and you can toggle emails or notifications for each of the different events (like someone replying to a topic you've followed etc).  You can also turn the notification sound off in that screen if you're thinking of perving over Austin Allegro Equipes (yeah, that picture) at 3am in bed.

      A proper shite 90s jet ski just came up by me and I’m sorely tempted. Looks like a decent version of the year, a seadoo spi.
       
      Seems rotax powered which I remember from my karting days and I’m hoping to go and see it tomorrow. Looks like a two cylinder carb fed job.
       

       
      Anyone played with them?
       
      As usual the engines in bits and it’s missing the jet whatever that is. Presume where the prop fires water down?
       
      Are there any rules to it’s use or can I just get it running and blast about on it on the local water and lochs?

      Is anyone else into their kits? In new money, that’s scale models.
       
      Is anyone selling any? I have an unhealthy collection that I can’t particularly let the wife see.

      Greeted by an FTP this morning due to flat battery, suggestions as to a battery supplier.
      Any advice gratefully received.
