What's the betting this is Seth's retirement project, soon to be gracing the roads of the valleys sporting Leyland National running gear? :D

You must have been out on the day Mr De 'Ath came round to see you when you were 65 then?  :-\  Lucky!  :)

At university we had a departmental safety officer called Dr. De 'Ath. Always made me chuckle. ;D

Even if it's not deadlocked, the CL motor assists manual operation of the lock using the key, so if the battery is completely dead it will take more force to turn the key, but it should be do-able as long as the lock is connected up and not siezed.

I think he may be mooting someone a bit closer to him.
.. and someone who knows his own @rse from his elbow would be a definite advantage. ;)

Keith Flint at 49! Prodigy lead singer for those that don't know him. Kinnell..........
49 is no age... was only listening to some Prodigy tracks last night.

Indeed.  :(

Might have to dig some out later as a tribute. Apologies to the neighbours... ;D

Every once in a while I get bored and decide to sign up to SKY for a year. After a week or two I remember why I binned it previously - its just more channels filled with utter shite, that you need to scroll through, in the hopeless search for something decent to watch.

.. and that's on the rare bits that happen in-between the adverts. ::)

Anyone would think they were funding the content by selling advertising and just pocketing the monthly fee from those mugs who pay it. >:(

Under distance selling regs I would have thought that you have a right to return the tyres within 2 weeks regardless of your reason for doing so. 

I hope to be there, possibly on the way back from the kit car show at Stoneleigh. :D

If it's 6 years old it's done its time.

Could be that the panel checks internal resistance or capacity of the battery and determines when it's no longer serviceable. The battery will be on float charge in the panel, so the voltage will always hold up.

Reading between the lines it appears the Dickensian undertaker is softening his approach to Brexit.

He's got an "approach"? :o

Handbrake shoes on the 190. Fiddly little job, similar to the Omega.
Worst part came at the start when I jacked the car up. The jack disappeared up into the floor as the rusty metal crumbled under the weight.
MOT runs out in two weeks, so need to get the welder out soon.  ::)

On a German car?......surely not. :)

Well, it is 29 years old with 244000 on the clock. I have already welded up the other three jacking points, so this one must have been feeling left out.  ::)

I wonder how many modern Mercs will reach that age? ;D

Mate of mine had one the same age as my Omega which went to mr. Beanz about 10 years ago. Had been through a couple of sets of front wings by that time too. :-X

Remember what the White House said.. We can't trust what he says because he's a convicted liar. Yep, he told all those lies to cover Trumps @rse so how can be believe.... Oh, wait. :-X

He has to get the balance right between saying enough to take Trump down, but not enough to dig himself further into the brown smelly stuff. Bit of a tough call. ;D

What's an iPad? ::)

It stops the dribbles from showing through.
I thought it was an important component of a pirate outfit. :-\

If you can't get IPA, meths will do. :y

Cor, you Pale Ale drinkers like the hard stuff too eh?! ;)
Hmm. Did I mean to put meths before Gin on the list? :-\ What's that saying about me? :-X
