If there is nothing to report I'm going straight out to eat something unhealthy. Maybe a burger, or perhaps a huge tub of icecream... Anyway, I seem to have been amassing pictures, so...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I've only had the two (so far...), the first was just watching telly. I tried breathing into a paper bag for a bit (does that ever help anything??) and then went for a walk up and down the road. After a while I calmed down but I still felt a bit jittery the next day driving, like something bad was g...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

Cheers guys! Not much in the way of pain now but perhaps still a little bit down on energy but, you know, I've been a bit poorly... I wasn't sure if I was giving too much information there but fuggit, it might help someone who's going for the same thing, or at least provide a bit of a laugh. I've ha...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

I've bin back to the hostable today from some tests, more blood tests (do I have any left?), bone marrow biopsy and chest and sinus x.rays. I had a crap night's sleep worrying about the tests. Eventually I heard t'wife getting up and I thought it was finally morning. Wrong, 4:30am. T'wife came with ...

Re: Pointy Indicators on modern cars

Mercury Cougars had them in the '60's-'70's (probably others too), although they were run by a roundy-roundy motor and a set of relays, they did look pretty cool on them to me, but seeing them on modern nazi-mobiles has put me right off of the idea. I think you'll find parking a car with hazards on ...

Pssst... wanna buy some oak? It's a bit manky so I'll probably end up burning it... :supafrisk: Dammit, I was just at that timber yard to pay for the wood (delivery Wednesday, weather willing) and I forgot to take a decent camera (stupid).

oh yes indeed, you can tell that by the way I wasn't allowed to walk across the shop floor to get to the office inches from massive machines in operation, and the guy on the rhs of the second picture, weighed down by all his PPE... Good to hear you're feeling a bit better, hope they get to the botto...

Re: and today i have mostly been...

My dad had a Merc that mainly got used for carting the dog about, somebody actually stole parts off of it while it was parked up, he'd left a window open 'cos the dog was in it. Yep, Dib was a particularly useless guard dog... Anyway, feeling much better now (hooray!) but I still have to face a host...

Re: Motorised boot

I don't seem to be able to get into Service Box just now but yeah, it's a standard list, so it covers everything possible, but if you click the link it'll give a red "you must be joking" message.

Still, if it's on the 607 maybe it could be adapted...

Re: ew10

I'd have thought that would depend on how worn the engine is. There's no turbo to worry about so it's just the usual service stuff. Keep doing that regularly until it dies and/or you win the lottery.

Re: sunroof rail

Try your local Peugeot/Citroen dealer? I didn't manage to find anything for that part number on a search. This place http://www.peugeotparts.co.uk/page19.htm lists it but says it's cables? No idea if that's right.

I'm still using imgur, although they're not as easy to organise as bloatophucket, plus I don't trust any of them now.

Re: sunroof rail

I can see a repair kit in Service Box back up - 8424 48 - but I can't get into Service Box proper to see if it's still available (the kit for a coupe is different btw). Failing that a car dismantler's.
