Re: Slight incident with thule bike rack

I had this issue (removing the locks, not a cow), they do seize if not lubed regularly. Soaking with WD40 should hopefully do it, if not try to at least salvage one of them, you only really need one lock but I used two. If you do end up destroying them you can still buy them new, it's a Thule 567. O...

Re: Shakespeare and Sprouts

Wasn't it tapioca that was frogspawn, semolina is more like readimix concrete :D

I found most school meals ok but boiled cabbage and their sliced beef (from our old friend the elastic cow) you had to fold about 15 times to make it stay on the fork were a particularly bad memory.

Struggling to get it up lately...

Right, that's got your attention, I tried popping the AFT the other day and it went up kind of ok, not fully up which has been the case for several years (just needed a final nudge if we could be bothered but normally not as without it you didn't even need to get into the back to drop the roof) but ...

Re: Recommend Stainless Steel Exhaust Pipe

Ten years and over 170,000 miles later ours is still going strong, still irritating the neighbours when I go to work at 4am :twisted:

I'm sure a mild steel one would have rotted through again by now. :wink:

Re: Exhaust, cheap rubbish :(

Ten years ago I needed a replacement, I was on the verge of buying a full original system then stumbled upon MIJ Exhausts [/color] who were offering a full stainless system at around the same price (£228.50). I rang them to enquire postage cost, it was £228.50 delivered or £228.50 fitted and they co...

Isle of South Uist, Outer Hebrides

N674***, seen in Mallaig and then again on South Uist and Benbecula in the Outer Hebrides, had a Bongo Fury sticker on the tailgate and some wide wheels (& spacers?), looked good. Looks like you were in convoy with a crew-cab thing with boats on the roof...

Re: Anyone know what these are?

It could be a relic from Nippon TV from when it was in Japan. Your radio reception will be hopeless if it's the original Japanese radio, they work on a mostly different waveband so you might only be able to get the shipping forecast. You can fit a band expander to make it work on normal UK frequenci...

Re: Virus News

As a result will there be any spare bog-roll? We've got plenty but Jr, having ridiculed those in Costco the other day now needs some. Badly. This may yet develop into an approrpriate opportunity to discuss socks at the Le Mans 24 hours race in France, and not for wearing on your feet, at least not a...
