Re: Cheap Amazon 827 front pipe

Must have some old stock lying around at that price? BM or B&M as they're known round here are actually based in Mansfield, the next town over from me. They have a little fitting place on one side of town and quite a large manufacturing site on the other. Decent stuff usually for the money. Not what...

Re: NEC and Rover 800 owners club

I'll try and get it packaged and weighed in the next few days.

I'll get back to you once I've done it.

Re: NEC and Rover 800 owners club

That would be good Chris, appreciate it. Dave Pic as promised. Unfortunately some numpty (me) chopped off the sides. I had the intention to inlay it into the front of the 800 trailer but that never happened. It's just gathering dust now as you can see. I don't want anything for it, happy to post/co...

Re: NEC and Rover 800 owners club

It all sounds a bit silly IMO.

Good luck with it Dave, I wish I still had some interest in the cars and would have offered to help in some way.

I still have a large Rover sign knocking around somewhere if that's any use to the cause?
I'll try and grab a photo to show you over the weekend.

Re: NEC and Rover 800 owners club

I blame anti-social media Jim! Definitely a factor. With 800s specifically though they just seem a bit unloved. It was talked about many times on here for starting a proper club. Never enough people to move it forward though. Plus it sounds like at least one person thinks they're more important tha...

Re: Scoobys Dogmobile - Take 2!

Didn't realise lead acid batteries were disappearing.

My Mondeo definitely has a calcium battery.

Not sure on the Jeep, I know it's new but no idea what it is. I should probably investigate.

Re: Charles' early 92 827 manual coupe

Impact driver was always my weapon of choice on those.

Only the odd one wouldn't budge, then I drilled them out.

Just make sure you grease any new fittings well and it should be fine for years

Wasn't done by me so no idea how it was worked TBH.

Could have all been fakes for all I know. :D

Re: Scoobys Dogmobile - Take 2!

Definitely, not a good time for many reasons.

It is quite amusing when MOTs are done at the same time as they started out.

I forget which car it was, but one of mine in the past was done on the same date for several years. Bizarre that could happen.

Re: Scoobys Dogmobile - Take 2!

MOTs in the winter are a definite no no imo if at all avoidable.

Saying that if it's a car you know and keep on top of it shouldn't be that bad to need much doing.

Either way no need to worry for another year at least. :)

Re: Jeep talk

Petrol and diesel are typical prices here. £1.30-1.40 depending what you want. The local LPG station down the road knows people have got to travel so he has them by the balls. It's a bit crap really, the cheaper places are a minimum of 15-20 miles away. Which is at least an hour's trip. It would be ...

Re: Jeep talk

No, no LPG. I'm not planning to use the car daily so chose one based on condition.

Plus LPG isn't cheap here, I seem to live in a black hole or something? :D

It can be got at a sensible price by travelling but I'm too lazy for that as all the cheaper stations aren't in places I regularly visit.

Re: Jeep talk

Well I finally found one at a sensible price. :D It's a 52 plate as can be seen, 4.7 V8 High Output Overland. It's done 73K since new and as the pics show has been very well looked after. Only downside was the 260 mile round trip to fetch it. Nothing of note to report yet, drove home fine. Just wait...
