Re: Arterial spray anyone?

I thought most of the Turbo's seized up in the end due to lack of oil changes and because they had no water cooling. Tough engines though!

Certainly an 'interesting' pattern to the interior :shock:

Re: My new 406 project #2

Its had a slight* front end knock, which needs the headlights sorting before the MOT, along with the fuel flap light on the dash - climate control is as random as the rear wiper, and none of the doors line up properly.. Perfect! well bought and good luck with the recommissioning :cheesy: I R confus...

Re: New 'stricter' MOTs...

Colour of brake fluid. There's not much to prevent someone extracting the discoloured fluid and replacing with nice clean fluid to pass the MOT? the reservoir would look great but the important fluid at the calipers would still be old :roll: Not that BFC's cost much but I wouldn't put it past some ...

Re: New 'stricter' MOTs...

I don't think they can start removing engine covers/undertrays to have a good poke around? it's more to do with the physical testing?

As far as I understand it; if the car is fitted* with a DPF and it goes on to produce smoke on the test then it will fail? or something.

Re: Rare Peugeot 406 HPI PETROL FOR SALE

The majority of british car buyers are so scared of "old" cars especially if the yearly RFL is quite high, perhaps you could try 'Car and Classic' to advertise it? they seem to attract the quirky or noteworthy cars. Like truffy says it's early days and you just need the right person to pop up. Ebay ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Carpentry confuses me, it never seems to go how you'd expect it too, like when I tried to make a square box and none of the corners worked (something about adding 2 x thicknesses to the length) that got botched in the end. I can just about hang a door but as long as it's replacing like for like and ...

Re: Rare Peugeot 406 HPI PETROL FOR SALE

This was member DaiRees personal car for many years, think he paid big money for it when it was nearly new and as with most long-term ownerships has been well cared for and maintained well.

Good luck with the sale.

Re: Cleaning leather

Most leather seats in cars are coated with a sealant so any "conditioners" will just sit on the surface and transfer to your clothing. A simple test is to allow a drop of water onto the leather surface; if it soaks straight in then that's uncoated old school leather but if it just sits on the surfac...

Re: Ebay Etc. Just "Run-In" 406s

Ooof, that's a bit of alright, no engine bay pics so dunno the bhp. Looks like it's been garaged the front fogs are still clear.

That's be a seriously cheap way of doing 100K miles over the next 3 years for someone on a budget.

I can't remember your age but you're looking in fine shape there so whatever you're doing; stay doing it I'd say.
