  1. Gutting,but every cloud as they say...
  2. Hi 'Shell,hope you both doing ok.Yeah agree with the guys,its a pity it has the clutch/gearbox issue,think you'll do well to break even TBH.
  3. Could just get a really small bag of cement from B&Q for about a fiver and get a cheapo trowel.knock up a small bit of muck and just smooth it between the road and the kerb.Dont need a large amount,just enough to to take the height factor out a bit.If you do it neat enough and apply it just before it gets dark and when the forecast is dry,you wont attract any attention from busybodies and unlikely the council will be bothered either,if you only use enough for what you need.Simple enough to do,you wont affect the flow of rain to that drain or anything if you keep it nice and flush .Much better than buggering about with bits of wood.
  4. Don't injure yourself on a car in Kent and end up in Medway hospital,you might get a shock
  5. Most of my experience with this has been with rusty Escorts and latterly 1980s Celicas . Always stuck with WD40 TBH,but its technique that plays a massive part.Doing things well in advance is the main thing,proper rusted stuff usually needs a week of daily dosage to get it to try to remotely penetrate enough to make it easier to shift,bar that then heat is sometimes the only real way to get things moving,but that has its own pitfalls.for example,trying to shift exhaust manifold bolts on a 30 year old 4th gen,without knackering the studs that lead into an alloy head by applying too much heat.Its a tricky process..I've found that GT85 seems to work better on the chaingear on my mountain bikes as a general protective lubricant rather than an all out penetrator.
  6. Thanks Dawn and Dave for your efforts,and to Rich as well.We all have shedloads to do this time of year so squeezing this inbetween family and work commitments is always a bit of a faff (see what i did there), so I'm sure everyone appreciates the efforts from you all.
  7. Have to check the newest batches of Toyos, as i recall they're not Japan made anymore
  8. Got the AA maintenance charger from Amazon for 25 quid delivered,all set up today.
  9. Aha,so what happened with the Fast and Furious setup,all sold on now?

    Bek

    He has a very dry wit at times lol
  11. My mate works for a company that deals in used CATs, they have a contract with the biggest recycling company in the uk and have branched out overseas. Theres some serious money to be made sorting the precious metals from them. Hes posted up loads of pics of unscrupulous people being filmed pulling up beside a target car (not just 4x4s) and they jack those up in seconds and saw the cats off ridiculously quick. Lots of Prius type cars and newer models. They work in teams and always usually have a nutter with a weapon with them to deal with owners or heroes. Theyll do it in broad daylight and are very efficient.
