Re: and today i have mostly been...

I always enjoy your pics, the properties there seem to have fairly elaborate walling to the boundaries and gated fronts which is not seen much here. I'd imagine that would be expensive initially even by Croat standards? is there a reason why the properties are enclosed like this?

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Yeah that wire fence with the blue carpet? draped over it. Looks like it would stop you from walking around the building easily?

Re: and today i have mostly been...

That chicken wire fence, how come it divides the man cav, err workshop like that? I mean it almost looks like the gable end wall is in someone else's garden?

Re: Front door closing sound

When you shut the door there is a catch plate screwed into the body kinda like this ]

You can adjust the position of the catch up/down and side-to-side this might make the door close nicely.

Re: 2.0. v 2.2 Hdi engines.

I've been on this forum many years and it appears to me that HDi's vary quite a lot with MPG's, some easily manage high numbers whilst others struggle. I only wish I could offer a solid reason for it.

Re: and today i have mostly been...

https://i.imgur.com/7Z0Tpcd.jpg See where the T&G meet the 'cill' at the bottom, water will love to sit there and attack the T&G, would be worth looking at applying a very generous bead of clear silicone forced right under the T&G so any water get repelled. Perhaps even some leadwork or a flashing ...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I would say that T&G is the perfect colour for it, that's exactly how I'd like it to look. The problem with going too dark is that you're stuck with it unless you want to sand it all off again. I admire you're spirit to preserve what is obviously an important part of past communities and families, I...

Re: Hello from Spain.

Hello and a nice introduction post there! top marks. I've recently fixed the rear seat access/lever issue on a Renner Twingo and it only needed a couple of expertly* placed tie-wraps to help guide the cable to the latch at the bottom of the seat. The mechanism is very much like a bicycle brake lever...

Re: MOT history gap

I reckon the owner missed the MOT in 2016, forgot about it basically, there's no reminders for MOT's (I think there should be though) so he drove around unaware of the issue. You could easily drive around for a year and not get picked up on an ANPR important enough to get stopped. My daughter did a ...

Don't show the TV people that outbuilding, they'd want to use in in one of their dramatic* scenes what with it looking emotive and rustic :cheesy: From a business point of view your 'elf n safety' is lacking; you have no fall prevention measures, nothing to prevent falling debris, no segregation bet...

Re: Caliper painting

rwb - most rear calipers have a piston that needs winding back to carry out changing the pads etc. There's caliper winding kits on Amazon etc, I've got one but yet to use it, it looks like something you'd get into a right pickle with but if you watch youtube guides it's not too difficult, they come ...

Re: Wheel Bearing roulette - Volvo woes

Turns out it was the opposite wheel making the noise :? just needed the offside bearing changed and all is quiet again. £105.00 fitted. The other most bizarre benefit is that for a few months now the car has hesitated when setting off and engaging the electronic clutch but now it's fine. I can only ...
