Omega General Help / Re: Vectra vxr 345mm front Brake swap?
« on: Yesterday at 15:35:18 »
Fit '04 Pontiac GTO/Base Monaro calipers with Monaro front brake hoses :y
I thought the general opinion were these did not perform as well as perhaps they look they should?
It's an option if it fits under standard 17" wheels but if you have 18" wheels then there is no excuse not to go for bigger discs and pads with more pad surface area.

That’s for porsche calipers, I’ve had the 18z calipers on but stupidly sold them and the price has gone up to buy more so looking for a cheaper option

Got 18z's on one of mine  :) but looking for an upgrade that'll fit under 17 inch wheels on he project car.

I'd be interested in any info on this as well. AFAIK it is possible and will fit under 17" wheels which is what I want to do on the project car.

While In Car Entertainment has moved on, there is nothing that slots in and looks factory fitted on the market (ignoring the cheap Chinese tat that is the right shape but usually in piano black finish).That's why I added a cheap MP3 player and hid it away in one of my cars.

It's a shame that the Sat Nav discs where not produced after 2011, the NCDC system, while basic by todays standards does at least get you to your destination and you dont have to rip it off the windscreen every time you stop.

Keys aren't synch'd to the ignition switch in any way, that's purely mechanical.

The fob part of the key is synced to the alarm module and the immobiliser chip is energised, read and confirmed as a valid chip by the immobiliser unit.

NCDC powering on without ignition after battery installation is common, I know for certain two of mine do it, the third one probably does as well but haven't had to swap the battery on that yet.

Re Spanner lamp - does it flash when you try and start the car? Also did both keys work (ie start the car) beforehand?

Front drivers door if immaculate.

Maybe bonnet if immaculate.

I'm sure I'll think of more.
Are you suggesting the one I gave you in return for your good one was not "immaculate"?

;D

Well that car went to Serek to assist with a Manual conversion a long time ago so I suspect your 'quality used' item along with the rest of the shell probably got crushed, stripped, sold to North Korea and may probably return here one day as part of an ICBM!  :-X :y

General Car Chat / Re: VX parts prices up due to VX takeover
« on: 23 January 2018, 23:21:58 »
That company doesn't half talk some ......, practically nothing they sell is a genuine part (N on the end of the part number) so VX not being part of GM is going to make no difference at all.

I would be a goner for sure. With all the important industry and tech that’s around in Barnsley, I wouldn’t be surprised if they hit us with multiple warheads.  :(

.. Whereas my parents live equidistant between Aldermaston and Burghfield. :(


This topic always reminds me of the old line from "Threads" just before it kicks off big style  ::)

Something along the lines of ............... if it kicks off, take the kids to your mothers in Lincolnshire, there is nothing to bomb there  ;D

Aye was said by the Kemps neighbours. Threads highlighted the truth about something we never dared think about. Probably the reason why I visit Cold War structures and think about what might have been.... Problem is that I do believe that one day it will happen... You can't Un-invent Weapons of Mass Destruction.

My missus told me about this and we got to thinking......would we all get a text or something? Would all the telecomms providers send one out? What would it say?

“No point running and hiding, you are going to die. Have a nice day. Vodaphone”
If need be yes, it would be either a CBS (Cell Broadcast) or a Location Flash SMS, either of these would come up on your Screen straight away and dont rely on you going to your inbox to read the Massage. It wouldn't be down to the Networks to send this out as various Gov Depts have a Gateway into the Networks as part of their Public Emergency Alerts Program.

Cell broadcast only going to work if all handsets have it turned on and the correct 'channel number' selected

General Car Chat / Re: How did Serek do it?
« on: 13 January 2018, 23:28:05 »
I buy the GM Opticlean 5L on trade and dilute it a little bit more than the label suggests - get about 6 x 5L cans. Never had it freeze yet and works well.

Trouble is you use so much with headlight washers this time of year.

Personally I would never fit standard bushes in the front, all mine have been pollybushed.

Omega General Help / Re: My jobs to do this winter/spring
« on: 11 January 2018, 23:32:38 »
The vertical bolt has fallen into the sub-frame. For a while I had a tenuous hold of it but I couldn't get it out. Then it slipped, and has disappeared somewhere inside the sub-frame. Spent perhaps an hour with various magnets on sticks, and long coat hangar wires fishing about inside trying to find it but no joy. Any Ideas how to find it? Or is the sub-frame going to have to come off?  >:(

Seem to recall this happening to one of my cars when Daz and I were doing the wishbones, think one person encouraging the bolt back up to the point it fell into the subframe and long needle nose pliers, fingers, magnet, blood and cursing from the other person attempting to reach it was the answer.
