Removed the radiator drain plug on the daily as it weeps when the car is cooling down, unfortunately only halve the plug came out. Tried to seal the remaining bit and screw it back in but pissing out as it cools down again.

Sure I have a spare used radiator in the shed at my dad's so you can guess next weekends job.  :D

And the spare used radiator.... Weeps..... There's a few hours of my life I won't get back. I do have a brand new pattern radiator as well but it's not got the mounts for the external oil cooler do I fit / bodge it or do I spend yet more money on this car and buy another one?

I have a 3.0L auto rad on my3.2, junked the ext-cooler and used the internal cooler on the rad, but I did have all the 3.0L pipes too.

Don't be a slumlord landlord - get a proper pest control company in  :P ;) ;D

Otherwise, I hear Elon Musk was selling flamethrowers recently...

Get our glorious leader to operate the flame thrower, he has a history with gas powered things. ;D

Done a water leakage job at  a "Townhouse" (3 floors) in Enfield yesterday  . . .nothing special , in fact pretty run down  ???

Once inside found it was split into 9  single rooms all induvidually let by the landlord at 200 a WEEK each . . . That  equates 7200 per month  :o :o :o  or  86 Grand a year

Some property owners are making a LOT of money  :o :o :o :o :o

I wonder about the immigration status of the tenants  ::) I'll guess that the house was Edmonton way

And the landlord, but he isn't paying tax, and probably find it's an illegal conversion.

The German supermarket, had windy guns for 16.99 about two weeks ago.

It just proves, how much the auction houses bump the prices, up to make them look good  Anything that RM/southbys sell is always over estimated.

Need to be careful, lots of the hire companies have started putting a milage limit on there cars, 

Company we use have 3 prices, if you go for the cheapest offer, it's a 100km limit, lots of people got caught last year,as they didn't tell people,and when they complain, just said it's there in the listing..

Go on eBay, you can by a 7" sat nav, for 35. Will cover the whole of Europe, and if you need, you can use it in a camper, or hgv as they have those settings.

If you want real time traffic, then the best at the moment is any TomTom with live services,..

Working. :'(

After reading this thread I expect that even Lord Opti is considering switching to DERV!  :o  ;D

The words help and freezing come to mind, or he'd rather try gentleman sausage before buying a canal boat fuelled shed. :)

Would take to long, but European trucks are safer, than American units, and we have one set of cu. Regulation,the yanks have state regulations, our trucks are 24v,yanks are 12v, we have better braking systems.

Even without a limiter, you would struggle to make a European truck exceed 70 on a level road ;)

Depends on the gearing, we in Europe have more hp than them spanks,  They haven't quite caught up, I think the vn Volvo is only available with a 610, were-as in Europe we can have 750.

Many years ago, this sort of thing would be looked upon as a declaration of war,and the fleet would have been sent to protect our interest's, (awaits a historical reference), but most off the fleet now is in dock, might need to resurrect the little ships.
