Thatís a big area of roof to insulate, I doubt you will see quotes sub 5 figures to put a decent roof on that. Even more so due to shape...

If foundations are good enough, strongly consider brick extension with timber roof.

So to build extra road space for even more cars and lorries to clog up, instead of creating additional rail space to operate faster trains to move even more thousands of people and tonnes of freight? ::)

Creating that extra road space over the decades I have witnessed has just not worked, but with all the current transitional difficulties the railways are shifting even more passengers than ever before, most of whom do arrive on time or near enough.  Unlike driving from the south east to, say, The Lake District and maybe arriving some time after 11 hours of "parked" driving.

In any case, after reading what others think is going to happen soon to the private motor car, we will all be grateful for an advanced, high tech, joined up public transport system! ;D ;D ;)
Trains are now significantly slower - Brum to London used to be under 1h20m by 2 very different routes before railtrack decided HS2 would keep them in work. Trains were artificially slowed to make HS2's 55mins (going from nowhere useful to nowhere useful) seem worth the £28b-£50b (for phase 1) of taxpayers money, depending which set of figures from HS2 Ltd to chose to use.

Additionally, the Northern lakes are approx 3.5-4hrs from here, and Dover is 2-2.5hrs from here. Assuming you are my side of Dover, where does 11hrs come from?

And as it happens, 3yrs ago my mum came up on hols with us one the Kirkstone Pass.  Her first comment when I collected her from Windermere was that she should have driven...

We need to forget about dicking around with 18th century technology. Its shit.

Ours is not that big, itís about 4.6m by 3m.

Currently drawing up plans to bulldoze it and build a proper extension, 7.5m by 4m.  8)

I should really service the auto box, all original at 168k.

Far better and less messy taking it to SOS and letting them do it while you drink coffee in the town  :D

Yup. Thinking the same, always a faff as you cannot get the car that high. Also avoids your hair smelling of ATF for a week.

He could investigate my clonk on back ends as well, roundabouts turn either way sometimes get a clonk on offside rear.  :-\
Subframe bushes, diff mounts or exhaust mount :y

Replaced and inspected exhaust rubbers, all good there. Diff mounts could be possible, easy way to test on ramps?

All this talk of planning...

Plan ahead and travel over night or take a picnic :y

Correctly timed you can get from deepest Sussex to Gretna Green in about 7 hours and Wick in another 8 including a few decent stops ::)

A lot to be said of cheaper bangers. Always wonder what Iíd do if lost 3.2, enjoyed drive home tonight in it.

As Omega is in short supply, if I lost 3.2 tomorrow, Iíd strongly look at BMW 530i in E39 shape, plenty about!

RWD, autos plentiful and smooth effortless power.

Nice one, saves running new cable and faffing about trying to source a replacement antenna.

I'd be tempted to glue that connector together using a hot glue gun.

Evening all.

Iíll start a thread here for my new to me Omega (as it will help me keep all the photos in one place)

I picked her up on Monday & paid the grand total of £600 for her, last owner for 11yrs & full service history (stamps anyway with cam belt changed in April this year)

Thereís a few things that need sorting but nothing major.

Couple of tiny rust patches

Laquer peel on front bumper

Passenger mirror doesnít work.
The passenger side of the climate control temp gauge lcd doesnít work.
Sunroof doesnít work.
But other than that itís all good  :)
