, as for not liking GM products, bet they wouldn't turn down an LC, if the price was right.
probably a job for car sausage unless it was an LO (LHD)
those panels do trap water , which GM tin worm loves
so probably a bare metal nut and bolt restore ,which car sos do well
Brewer would "tidy it up" sort a few faults at best .

Maybe the first thing i would do is lubricate the arms.  when i did my heat exchanger valve i was very surprised to find how dry they were.
good place to start before thinking of the motor which in the past i have lubricated many and found they worked much better as the manufacturer does not want them to last so do not offer much lubrication from new.
Hope this helps..

Appears to be something of a trend as Jeremy Clarkson and crew also seem to have a bit of a downer on Vauxhalls.Ok they're not the most desirable dogs danglies but they're easily as good as the rest of the class in their market segment.
Clarkson's hateful review of the vectra ,back in the day, seriously hurt vauxhall
and Top Gear whilst entertainment became all supercars and not anything to do with what people actually drive  ::)

Time for a new tv show , reviewing everyday cars ,new and used and doing simple common fixes on them
they could call it .......top dealer gear sos rescue  ;D
OK maybe not
it would probably get a following off snackheads   ;D

No worries.

Yeah I do miss my Omega but had an issue with the HG leaking at the side of the head, changed one bank (3.0) and then the other side started leaking. Heard a batch of 3.0 engines had dodgy HGs according to VX. Looks like I had one of them.

But agree they were a great car. Had air suspension, xenon headlights and my party piece was the pop up blind.

Even on high speed, they are terribly slow. Let alone, trying to use screen wash. Any ideas?

Can,t say i,m a fan of U.S. shows of that ilk. Most of the people in front of the camera seem to be a bunch of argumentative, attention seeking ars@holes.

I've got a video cassette showing old GP racing-back when the cars carried riding mechanics-and it shows one of the cars pulling into the pits for fuel.Two blokes wearing brown smock coats and flat caps are in the pits waiting and as the car stops one of them opens the filler cap and puts a funnel in while the other hefts what looks like a milk churn and begins pouring in the fuel both of these blokes have a fag on the go and while he's sat waiting the car driver lights a fag too :o :o Elf and safety at its finest :y ;D ;D

Speaking of "not actually doing the work", how many researchers does Brewer have helping him find the cars, and Edd to have detailed dismantling guidance for his workshop efforts?

Ron.


The cars a bought a far while before the actual show, then the jobs that need doing are researched, and bolts lossend, etc,  and if my memory is still working Mr brewer has been trading around Bedfordshire for a good few years,,, as for not liking GM products, bet they wouldn't turn down an LC, if the price was right.
