Just a trim... been there with the raspy stainless steel exhausts way back... Learnt that a £72 ETS cat back exhaust with two cheap trims on the back is infinitely better!!!

Iíve struggled to find suitable trims, when 2 pipes are so close together.

Which ones exactly did you get? Looks smart  :y

Just ebay ones I think. The problem is that all the £20 and below ones will be covered in rust in 12 months, I had the same problem as you with one of the cars, the tail pipes were bent together (not sure if the courier dropped it or ETS made it like that, difficult to pry them apart but managed to slot some trims on by modifying the clamps at the rear of the trims. I would like to get some slash cut (same as original) tips but think a visit to a specialist might be the best route.

I just removed the switches, cleaned off the sticky rubber coating with solvent, sanded them down to plastic then used plastic primer, star silver III spray paint (same as door trims and centre console on this car) and clear coat. A professional painter could obviously do a much better job but I decided to give it a try.

Bit more progress over the last couple of weeks - Visit to WIM and trying out a painting fix on the sticky door switches.

For the right car, anywhere in the country.

My Omega's came from Sandhurst, Newbury, Swindon, Manchester, Dursley, Southend and Shawbury. I still have three of them but these are the final ones, hopefully keep going for a few years but goodness knows what'll replace them.

The old Zafira, one of the more powerful at 150bhp was ok for me in all honesty
My Battlebus was 100bhp when it left the factory.  No idea what it is now, I'd guess 7-80bhp.  It definitely isn't powerful enough, even for tunnie/nick w

Why on earth do you still have it then?  :-\

Have you ever seen those car customizing programmes on TV.... where the donor car has it's original engine and gearbox destroyed by full throttle antics in the car park before it's wheeled in to the workshop and crafted into something new with lots of chrome and a big V8?... Well it's similar to Brackley when TB can finally find where he left the battlebus.

Oh God, please someone save me, I don't really want to put standard springs on this car and due to its use I can't use - 30mm springs.....  ::)

Ok, failure to obtain MV6 springs leads me to ask the question, does anyone have a set of Police spec springs for a saloon that they want to sell?  ::)

What sort of condition does this spare alloy need to be?

Usual MOT place I use checks the oil level before doing the emissions test. Not an MOT requirement but shows some mechanical sympathy before using the throttle!

Vented rear discs on that model... Well should be  ::)
