Even close up good old drill and mop head plus Solvol and a small globule of elbow grease

Then I thought I would use it as a template to make up a new one. ImageImage

Still to do...

Swap the Lexus lights over to new car. ...and the thing I am dreading... taking the chassis rails, from P5 off the old and on the new one.



Well....

I have not sold either of my mk2s. I have however got a Mk3 NC, 2.0l with the option pack!?! 2007 vintage for the princely sum of..... drumroll please! £4300. 33,000 miles.

Dark metallic grey, with some sort of phone kit, looks like a Parrot, with no screen and the centre knob has obviously been cleaned with something that made it all sticky (acetone?).

I believe it is an ‘I.O’ having a quick google I think it should have a screen, I managed to make a phone call through it, initiating the cal on my phone. When I tried streaming through it but it sound awful any ideas?

My “new” 5, the nc is being repaired after being involved in a crash on the M4. My gf was shocked as it the first crash she was involved in, Image
AndImage
And
Image

The one thing about me is I have been in so many crashes from racing bikes is that after a torrent of filth being uttered by me, I was totally calm, the driver of the rented Transit van, was in tears for a bit.
The good news is that I should be getting it back on my birthday!

The quote for the repair is £2608.14! Bearing in mind I only paid £4300 for it I was surprised to see that.

The bad news is Enterprise, the owners of the Transit, have given me a ‘boat’ to drive around in. A Nissan Qashki, I don’t know how it’s spelt, nor am I prepared to look it up, or for that matter look at it unnecessarily! It is soggy to drive and, sways about like George Best, Ollie Reed and Gazza walking home from the pub!

Yeap they are all the same, whales of the roads, hate them all in that design.
Glad no one was hurt and all being repaired, get it all up on your build thread.
M-m

Having taken the day off and while waiting for a Yodel parcel delivery and a no show from the SKY technician, drained, flushed and refilled the Eunos with nice clean coolant.

Bloody freezing now, but at least the Eunos won't freeze up.

Roll on the warmer drier months.

Just installed this…Image from Fleabay. Sounds quite deep but not in obtrusive.

I actually managed to get the old one off without hassle, sprayed the nuts with penetrating spray (actually used drill cutting oil) next morning hit it hard with a blowtorch, then used a deep impact socket hammered on the nut. And bingo
. All off undamaged.

Took the old girl for her yearly health check and passed with flying colours and not even a hint of an advisory, day was made even better with the renewal quote from Adrian Flux, a whopping increase of just £2.00, yes TWO English Pounds more than last year, no one could touch them so hats off to Dan and the clan.
