Re: What did you do today?

Today I finally managed to get round to swapping the wheel trims on the 405 for some scratty ones I bought months ago. Now I don't have to worry if It snows and I graze a curb or even simply misjudge one. I caught the right rear a while back on a particularly tight junction I think and got really an...

Re: New car

Aaron the landlord at The Cross on Clee Hill can help with the decal but it may be some wait for him to do it. He does all the livery on the local Wicked Van Hire stuff and can do anything custom like that.
Looking forward to seeing what this pocket rocket is like :-)

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

Re: What did you do today?

It's a lot of outlay on a free drill but I'm pretty sure you can buy new Li-ion packs and charger for old Dewalt stuff? The old Elu re-branded stuff is bomb proof.

Re: What did you do today?

this thread has reminded me that i should dig out my old elu router and see if i can get some brushes for it. I've only been meaning to do that for the past 5 years. one of the other chippies didn't know about replacing the brushes so had been chucking away a new saw every few years... I ended up w...

Re: Cars what I own and occasionally touch

I always had really good results with damp start. Warm the engine up before applying it so you don't seal the damp in and make sure everything is clean before applying it. Don't use WD40 like I did once to clean everything before hand though, it reacted with the damp start and went all crackly so wa...

Re: Peugeot 306. More 306 Tomfoolery

Bloody hell that poor old car has some battle scars now. It was a minter when I bought it! That old repair has taken many years to come through, I don't remember ever seeing it. Pretty sure it didn't come from Overdrive, the place I got it from had literally put it on the Trader that morning and onl...

Re: Scruffy's Scrappers

Only got chance to pop out to a builders merchants yesterday and look what rolled up right next to us! It'd had a recent respray by the looks of It, not the best but shiny and looked ok overall.

The food we had in town was absolutely worth going for too. Sadly the 505 owner wasn't around, I'd much prefer it to the 307...

Re: Scruffy's Scrappers

tmp-cam-377319484.jpg In South Portugal at the mo. My old man just drove down in his 500 quid auction bought 307. It was absolutely packed, roof rack loaded, 2 bikes on the back (one electric) no evident arch gap when I saw it leave my house! tmp-cam-2140473948.jpg tmp-cam-1069950713.jpg tmp-cam-73...
