6 grand for a 16 year old Merc, built in time when they were heavy into penny pinching.  :-\

Lot of car, but suspect a lot of bills and lot of DIY time.  :(

I saw it on the guide and surprised to see it, likewise thought it was only at Cinema.

What an impressive job he did, cannot believe that was filmed over 100 years ago, when it went full screen early in. Really brought it all far more to life and what really went on.

I cannot remember what springs went on the 3.2  :-[

Back in 2012 they were fitted I think, with standard shocks. Still good and only minor corrosion seen, itís handling just way I want to now. Super soft ride  :)

That said, maybe it appears super soft as day before Iím usually in a BMW M140i.

Found an oil leak form somewhere.  Sigh.  The Ranger can't get here quick enough....
I reckon it will be from the engine. HTH.  :)

Kitty needs a litter tray.  :)

I'll install one underneath after I remove it from STEMO's bonce.

 ;D ;D ;D

I'll look out for some yobbish driving in a Ranger near me soon.  :D

So that Astra did not last long then  :(  :'(

This is the downside of bangernomics, cheap car yes,  but lots of time & effort to fix bits and bobs, then it blows up. Not a lot of money, but fair amount of time invested to get it running.

Then have to repeat this on the next banger  :(

I have a 2002 3.2 Elite, I just run standard shocks on the back of mine  :y

Always replace suspension components in pairs, never just one side.  :)

You know you do not have to use the Council's Inspector, and in any event, IME after multi building projects, you will be lucky to see him once. :y

Yeah I know you can use independents, did you find that better? Also is it worth getting approval for engineering plans signed off as second stage/building code approval?  :-\

As mentioned before, get full plans to tie the builder to a quote but, go notification on building control to get independent stage checks done (full plans is risky as lots of issues get covered up before any final inspection.

Hard facts are that a builder will not go to the real footing depth required unless forced because

1) The don't want to
2) They are not clever enough to understand why footing needs to be a set depth and to asset standard.

What depth is this typically?

One quote states they will go 1 meter down.  :-\

1m or to firm virgin ground.

In my case the ground had been built up so 1.8m needed

Thanks  :y

I responded to your PM, I pinged across my full plans.  :)

It would be better to by a new LPG kit and fit it, used kit would be a nightmare of fitting.

LPG needs to be tuned just right, probably spend more time and cost sorting that than buying a new Stag Front end kit.

1m is a minimum for clay to avoid shrinkage/heave, if trees nearby expect more.

No big tree's nearby, site used to be a car park before it was re-developed.

Next year, it would be great to see:

- Hamilton, on form he is now with car at same level.
- Leclerc with a fast Ferrari (showing Vettel how it's done)
- Max in fast Honda-Red Bull.

I do have such a list. Flooring is extra, hence question.  :y

Thanks  :y

Tiles are ceramic  :)
Take a photo, as I doubt a developer would use anything other than standard, cheap flexible floor tiles.

Ainít flexible floor tiles, one has chipped
