    132*65-16030.... For 4AGE. = too many 2s, m8 2sav
  2. Well..... I suppose, to be honest, you could pay WAYY £more for something else and wouldn't be *half as nice 🙂 *admitting slight bias 2sav
  3. Often, when we're out, the anklebiter wants to charge her iphone and if I'm using my phone for SatNav then the single charger insert isn't enough.... This seems just the job AND a half decent Voltmeter thrown in. Less than £3 🙂 2sav
  4. I feel like a '57 Chevvy..... 🎱 . . . . . . It's my Birthday! 🎂 2sav
  5. Since the 'New/Warranty' front downpipe/flexi has been fitted I've been getting a distinct 'Klonkk' from the rear... I put a lot of effort into eliminating the klonkks when I fitted the T4 back box... The new front section has obviously put a twist into the whole back pipe length >> hence fresh klonkk 😞 ..... I wizzed her up on the ramps thismorning and a bit of 13MM action (... with added WD40!) has got just that bit of wiggle room needed = all is serenity, once more. 2sav
  6. Hmmm..... Sealed the edge and is smooth. 😬 2sav
  7. Hmm.... All Stuck >> the glue comes out like vaseline = stick a blob onto a toothpick and smear liberally in sticky zone... However = no runs & neat control 😬 Its currently on a 'low bake' (grand sunny day) and I will post a piccie later.... 2sav
  8. Ooff! ..... And there's me ..... with a tube of 'flexible vinyl cement' to resolve my ills... lol 2sav
  9. A small nick/puncture into the foamy vinyl doorcard, just under the r/n/s window, has been bugging me since I got the car... However... I haven't done anything really about it. A child passenger succeeded in making it a tear.... Bu99erations! 😞 ..... we will see what Poundlands Finest can do to resolve my predicament .... 2sav
  10. New Belt.... Always the best plan, even non-interference! 2sav
  11. ".. till next time, Bahh" Jonathan W (youtuber) @ end of every clip 😉 2sav
  12. The drill is a tight fit in the B&D jaws... Modified to the drill collar dia. This screw both locates the drill positively against rotating but aligns the spindle to vertical... Top Banana! I wonder what the brand-new owner was thinking of when the OldGirl hit 13miles...... 2sav
  13. Ooof! Big Numbers Day 🎱 2sav
  14. Knock on..... Bootfloor Since my flexi/downpipe was replaced [again/warranty] I have that >> not too often/damn annoying 'tokk' >> coming up from somewhere '.... out there' 🤔 When I cobbled up my VW T4 back box mod, a lot of tweaking was needed to stop the pipe hitting the rear multi link... It goes through the spiders web - rather than looping under, like a Corolla. When it stops raining..... another session with Uclamp spanners beckons. 2sav
  15. When I got set up, in the drill stand, I noticed a bad wobble in the chuck spindle... The B&D drill has plain brass bearings so no adjustment options. The 2-Speed controller switch was duff, meaning I only had Hi-Speed. A trip to Wilko sorted me out with 850W Hammer/Infinite speed select, Reverse + 13MM chuck @£35.. Very fair, I reckon. Some 'tech mods' have been required to fit it into the B&D drill stand (which is virtually unused 'vintage' lol)... But I'm happy with it and look forward to many years of Quality - Perpendicular - Perforations. 2sav
  16. Restore? ... No ... I buy the cheapest tat on Ebay, then 'finesse' them until they are usable. Actually buying old 'bootsale' quality/worn out kit and then refurbing... too much hassle m8 2sav
  17. I bought a B&D 'as new' drill stand and then got a chinkkie cheappo Silverline 4" drilling vice. All good... but the vice was rough! I scraped the ways (under the moving jaw) to finess the jaw action but the 'wobbly bob' lever/handle is a right pain! As seen here, I bought a handwheel - drilled it to fit - removed the crank handle (but it slots in for extra leverage) and now I'm happy with using this set up. 2sav
  18. Scan ebay motor sites, autotrader..... Good guide for 'asking' but not what it goes for. Ebay usually shows top successful bid.... But the guy may not turn up... 🤔 2sav
  19. Never forget..... Any hybrid, today, will be 'reprocessed' into razor blades before getting near the age of that Corolla. Nice to see you getting good service from the 'faithful oldie' 😬 2sav
  20. Well..... This >> There are supposed to be olive rings to fit recess in manifold.... .... added to the break in the flexi coupling expliains how my cabin has stunk of fumes, getting progressively stronger + louder 😵 Muchho improvemento 2sav
  21. ...... Sat 3PM ..... That is all.... 2sav
  22. .... Don't forget [check angle first!] FORD alloy sleeve nuts are 10apenny & yards usually overflowing with them. BOL on MOT 2sav
  23. Buzzed my guy @ATS... Seems it has been sent to ATS 'central depot' and is coming, overnight, to the Darkest NE. ..... TF! ..... I'm beginning to sound like TractorPull 😵 2sav
  24. *IF* I were to splurge on a fabbed ex manifold, then a 'custom' snake would be on the cards.... With the T4 glasser I'm happy with splashing out only £35 + clamps 😉 2sav
