You mean living in an unheated damp caravan? then yes, probably!

I will feel wealthy in comparison to how I feel now that's for sure. Along with the house, we will also be divesting ourselves of just over 2k pcm in unsecured debt repayments.  :D

It turns out that taking on a major refurbishment on a period house with zero cash as a budget means one incurs the odd bit of debt here and there  :o
Some advice if I might be so bold...

Instead of viewing that 2kpm as a cash bucket, keep your current budget and save it.

Linkages possibly out of sorts following motor change :-\

As I said in the guide, it was done on a 2004 police spec 3.2 manual using Haynes as a reference.

Many of the facelift wiring trace colours are slightly different although the primary colours are mostly the same, and that car had NONE of the sensor wiring present so it was all a ballache.

The woman buying our last house was expecting to do so with cash from a divorce settlement... Ex was a Virgin B747 captain...

Clearly his solicitors were far more competent than the idiot she used to buy the house as she had to get a sizeable mortgage, which nearly bollaxed the entire chain >:(

Her dilly dallying cost us about 15k as we had a house lined up which we were unable to commit to. Fortunately, when our sale finally went through the house two doors up from the first choice came on the market, so we put an offer straight onto that and 18 years later...

OK, facelift tailgate loom is in two pieces, second plug lives in main body of tailgate... other end of your mystery plug is, indeed, the tailgate contact switch :y

If you park any Omega for more than a week without disconnecting the battery*, expect to have to jump it.

But, do this more than four or five times, and you can expect to be buying a new battery.

* The caveat is to be sure that the key works in the driver's door lock and do not double lock it with the remote...

Indeed , 3 Kwh is how much electricity it takes to run a 3Kw appliance for 1 hour,(say a 13 amp kettle)
or a 1 Kw appliance for 3 hours

we use about 20 Kwh per day
probably a bit more than average because of the pumps,water treatment running 24/7 for the Koi
Don't leave the kettle on for an hour, it will boil dry. However, modern appliances have a safety device called a thermal cut out, so your kettle will be safe.
No need to thank me  :)
The 13 mp kettle was an example  for people who don't know what a Kwh is  ;)
but a builder's kettle may be re-filled many times in that hour
if it did "boil dry" the price of the job would increase  :y
If the kettle broke , would people ask 🎶 🎵 Dave the builder, can you fix it? 🎶 🎵  ;D
truth be told ,the "people" would go to argos and buy a new one ,give me the old one , "Dave the builder" would fix it or throw it in the scrap metal pile for weighing in  :y


solar panels are coming down in price now but still not economically viable for most people
battery technology / power banks ,has moved on in leaps and bounds ,but still not economically viable for most people


Probably correct, yet the leccy mate who fitted mine in 2010, is as busy as ever fitting them. ??? :y
Is it just me, or is there a developing trend re renewable energy sources...  ::)

Had rear tyres of 3.2 checked at Costco, wanted a second opinion as starting to get low. All good though, 4mm left and wearing evenly.
A second opinion? Haven't you got working eyes and a 20p coin?  :-\
Fixed :D

That must be the third time in as many weeks that we have been spanked by Brussels...  ::)

Still, at least it's official. When it comes to international football, we're not just second best, or even shite. Oh no, we're really shite.

75% is the industry standard of light that can pass through it. If your windows are too darkly tinted, then you might not be able to safely drive in certain light/weather conditions.
