My old dog has had some bodywork done.  Very pleased with it except that he's made a right hash of removing and refitting the vauxhall lettering.

Can anyone help?

Starting to really feel like they're rocking horse shit on the roads.

But on eGay there's a load.

Seriously considering at least another one in case one day in the not too distant future we wake up and they're all gone.

General Discussion Area / Parking fine help...
« on: 03 January 2018, 19:42:54 »
Hi guys, happy new year  :y

Hoping you can help.

Wifey parked in an MK car park run by a "Napier Parking". As a good wifey she purchased a parking ticket.

Two weeks later we get a letter with a parking fine lol anyways it appears the reg. was incorrect by a letter. Wifey had to input the reg. herself hence the slight error. Anyways we sent proof we'd paid our ticket fee and they have declined our appeal! I mean come on, surely someone has a ounce of common?!?

Anyway they've progressed this to a debt recovery solicitor.

I've sent a very snotty email demanding immediate removal of the fines which has now increased to 200

However should we be worried or is this just a dodgy company trying it on?

Your input very much appreciated 😀👍👍👍

Omega General Help / Rear vinyl(?) sticker trim
« on: 03 December 2017, 14:51:56 »
Afternoon u crazy kids  :)

So chap at work who is an excellent welder got hold of eeyore yesterday. We removed ns sill trim and he cut out and welded in new metal where I'd got a ruddy great rotten piece of metal.

I then finished off by underselling the whole sill round the trim clips, putting it all back together and painting.

However. In the process there is a black piece of sticker trim that has now disappeared. I thought I'd be ok with it but it kind of looks odd. Can I get a load of this and cut myself? If so anyone know where I can get it  :y

Omega General Help / ATP track rods
« on: 29 November 2017, 19:08:40 »
Evening guys. Hope you're all well.

Anyone got a linky to ATP track rods for my FL 2.5?

I know they sell the full track rods for both sides (including the inner and outer ends) but I'm buggered if I can find it 😢😢

Omega General Help / Boot question
« on: 27 November 2017, 22:21:57 »
When you lift out the boot carpet to reveal the boot metal.... does the colour match that of the car?

I'm currently in to under sealing and covering exposed metal. If this metal matches the star silver of my car then it's going to get a makeover 😎😎😎

General Car Chat / Omegas abroad
« on: 25 November 2017, 09:26:20 »
Currently in Poland on me holibobs.

I came here ten years ago and though I didn't have an omega it was the car I wanted. I therefore looked out for them and to say there were shit loads was an understatement.

Ten years on I've been here for 3 days and I've counted 5.

One pfl burgundy estate
Three star silver (lol) omegas. Two fl estates, one fl saloon in 2.6 guise.
One dark coloured pfl estate.

Really surprised. I expected to see shed loads

General Car Chat / TFR
« on: 16 November 2017, 21:02:47 »
So I get my car washed in the supermarket car park. I've been informed they use TFR and this proper does your headlights, plastic trims etc. in.

Is that right? Bar the headlights fogging I've never noticed any trim going light?

Your thoughts much appreciated

General Car Chat / Thank you Serek

Popped down to Huntingdon to see the main man and buy myself some lovely new returned headlights.

As I was so chuffed at the clear lenses I omitted to see the HID ballast box attached to it.

Got back to NOOF land, leccy at work wired them in for me, so now I have awesome fog free HIDs.

Cheers mate  :y :y :y

Had this knocking coming from the rear for a few weeks now. I've had it up in the air a couple of times looking for wrongness. Couldn't find anything "hanging off" even though it sounds bad in the car during driving.

It wasn't every bump that it made the noise which is why I wasn't surprised when I struggled to recreate the noise. This prompted me post up in the help section and thanks for that help.

I put some new rear shockers on and though this has actually made it a lot smoother over the bumps there's still been this knocking.

At my wits end I sent it up in the air on my lunch today and had young 'un 6ft up in the air with it. He's only little lol but even with him bouncing the rear up and down still couldn't make the noise  :(

One of our lads comes along, grabs the exhaust, moves it up and down.....noise manifests immediately. And loudly........middle exhaust rubbers destroyed. 2.14 later and the car is smooth as silk.

Anyway. Moral to this story. Don't overlook the obvious and don't throw parts at cars hoping they'll fix themselves without any actual evidence that your repair will work. I've done that and am now 45 lighter when the actual repair should have been a couple of squid!

Not all bad though. On the old shockers they had some sideways movement which I didn't like. And I've caught a small rust hole in the shock tower in time before it spreads so will weld that Sunday  :y

You know the black plastic grill that spans the length of the bumper and houses the fog lights.

Mines mangled 😥😥😥

Omega General Help / Rear ARB bushes and rear ARB links
« on: 11 November 2017, 21:00:11 »
Fitted some new rear shocks today (KYBs). There is a real improvement just replacing these. It's definitely tighter and smoother at the rear. But I'm aiming to do a full suspension overhaul as per another thread.

Anyways money constraints leaves me just doing a little bit each month.

Has anyone had any issues with the rear ARB setup I.e. The links or bushes? If so what sort of symptoms did you get?

And has anyone got a link to these items at reasonable cost? I see on eBay there are some dirt cheap options but I wonder about heir longevity.
