Re: Pug 406 escapades

It will definitely see February 21 Mot. Next year it shouldn't need too much. Maybe front tyres and a ball joint,droplink or other consumable. It owes me around 950 which is alot for an old car but it's an old car with everything done. Climate control works,cruise works and seats are like armchairs...

Re: What did you do today?

Re: 1974 Dolomite Sprint

There is also this chap who's quite close to me wh...

Re: EBay Finds

This is local and going cheap: https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/m2QAAOSw-4BfkJLy/s-l1600.jpg Oh https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/v64AAOSwQN5fkJEl/s-l1600.jpg That required a bit more work than I'm prepared to do just yet.

Re: What did you do today?

Oof that's more than I wanted to pay. I was hoping to get a grow-bag tray but they have been surprisingly vacant in the shops this year.

Re: What did you do today?

Went to storage and put a dust sheet over the Boxster. Where I store my cars is an old battery chicken shed. The cages are still above the shit pit (where the cars are) and oil has a habit of dripping down onto the cars. Not great. Hopefully this cheap and very thin dust sheet from Toolstation will ...

One of those scaler things is on the buy list. I need to upgrade my compressor before though as mine runs out of puff pretty quickly with any motored air tool. I have considered stripping all the paint off but I fear making the job seem too big. Especially for my short attention span on things. So j...
