Yes agree we have a fair amount of preparation work.Current drive/hard standing is concrete and will need breaking up and removing so expect 2 days..possibly 2 skips and 2 guys so that should be 200 each man/250 x 2 skips so to remove max 1k

Decent block paving at say 350/400 a pack and will need 7 so 2800 tops so cant see where its costing 2400 to lay them ..or am I being unrealistic ??? ::)

Can assure you they will get nowt until they start and then just cost of materials etc,but going on the 2 quotes so far neither will be getting my "hard earnt" anyway.

Both my quotes were detailed enough.

1 wanted a 70% downpayment the day they started to cover all the above.

Other wanted 50% on accepting the quote .

Need to find an Irish Navi  ;D

That's very true...most don't even have the cap now ...just a long suck through their teethless chops whilst smoking an electric puff pipe >:(

Had a similar experience here as we are in need of our driveway repairing/replacing as the current concrete is badly cracking and breaking up in parts,but has been down for 35 years .

Size is 8.0mtrs wide X 7.mtrs wide..no with my maths that is 56m2 so allowing for wastage/etc we need no more than 60m2.


Had 2 quotes ,1 for concrete which stated 75m2 and was 3700 and another for block paving at 65m2 at 6200 both inc VAT.


Not only are both quotes obscene but are also inflated by material which also assumes the labour is based on the material so am paying for work and material not needed. >:(

Coarse thread like a screw,but mine have an 8mm head so I use an 8mm deep socket on a 1/4 long extension tucked under the headlight guided in with a torch beam

You can actually feel the bolt from under the bumper if you stretch your arm up towards the headlight .
Its a 8mm machine screw and fits into the bottom bracket as shown in picture.If you don't feel able or comfortable undoing it by feel from under the bumper you will need a 1/4 drive long extension with an 8mm socket.Squash some bluetack or thick grease into socket head when refitting bolt as you want to keep bolt inside socket to guide it back into hole..it will become quite obvious when you have dropped the bolt several times . ;D

Well done that man ,and great when you manage to trace and cure an issue .

Mine has a similar oil leak and has done so now for past year or more.Last belt change showed no evidence of from crank seal and oil pressure sensor also seems to be dry .

Fresh clean oil always seems to appear in a small puddle on the front lip of the sump below alternator and run forward to settle at the front of the sump top. When I clean it off it will reappear after a couple of days and so the cycle has continued.

Might give the "plenty" trick a trick then Al ,although think it is more than would seep through a couple of bolts ,but you never know :y
