There were warning lights for engine and gearbox oil, but I could not see an ignition warning light, and there was no ammeter.

And just to remind the MoT supporters why I don't bother since exemption.

CLINT knows all too well about the situation above after a proper squeaky bum moment years ago in a certain Lada. :shock:

Lovely pics Mr SiC.....but could you edit the file size down a bit? Not sure if just me but took fooling ages for my tablet thing to show them. The ones Posted by Fried Onions just as good to view but loads smaller....

Aye, I reduce the size to make them easier to upload. It does for most things but the image quality suffers.

I shrink all mine to about 800x600, it's plenty for forum viewing.

Uploads & downloads quicker along with saving space on our site's storage too.

I'm on mobile, so massive hassle to resize 60+ photos. Usually the forum software is setup to do it automatically. Alternatively they put a thumbnail for forum viewing.

It's only 190mb of images though. But I guess if you're on ADSL or dial-up it could be a problem.

However if you open the images in a new window you do get all the pixels and can zoom in on the detail.

Here you go, here is a plug-in that Hooli can install to do it automatically:

800x600 is a bit piss poor for modern screens. My mobile phone is nearly 3 years old and the screen is 1440x2960. Also many computer screens are now 4k. Higher res gives a much crisper image.

Got my T25 back this morning.....Eye-watering bill, but 45 hours of bodyshop labour never going to be cheap I suppose. Three separate areas were repaired - side window aperture and associated panelwork, bottom right hand corner of engine bay - that had been ominously bubbling up the seams for a couple of years now. Also the sliding door has had new bottom and been re-hung. Not a lot to show for it, outwardly, but hopefully will extend the van's life. This is the 2nd bout of such expenditure in 13 years.

Anyway, with some time in the oven after the repairs and having been on interior dehumidifier since Saturday morning it was nice and clean and dry to go away for the winter. Will go up the barn before I SORN it for December and finish off the decommissioning - get the battery out, put the van on blocks and go through the brakes, bushes etc before March when it gets its MOT and full service. I already got the fuel down to a quarter of a tank so a fresh fill up in Spring will give me decent fuel, along with filters changed (got one pre-and-post carburettor). Curtains already in the washing machine and bedding gone to the launderette....

Everything had to come out for the body repairs and it filled up the conservatory so we have that back as well!

No it really isn't. My collection thread was resized on-the-go and it helped to preserve my roaming allowance.

Now why the hell when I repeatedly searched that same forum for such a thing couldn't I find one that worked after V2?

Thanks, I'll get on it.
