The Midas touch. Again.
« on: 22 April 2018, 17:04:13 »

That's it. I'm not touching anything else this weekend. Every single "quick thing" I've done has either turned into an ordeal, or resulted in me having to order more bits...

...except topping up the Jag's screenwash, as I can't seem to get new bonnet struts from anywhere, so guess I'll be onto the dealer tomorrow...  ...after I've ripped ECP/CP4L a new arsehole  >:(


On the upside, the amount of shit I've ordered this weekend, at least I'll have the excitement and anticipation of Mr Postie knocking at the door ;D


Oh, does anyone know where I can get an M5 reverse thread flange nut?

Yeah, tried there already (looking for UK based sellers, as getting severely cheesed off with far east sellers on egay, and their 6-8 week delays).

Was hoping someone would know of a decent UK fastener supplier who will do mail order for relatively small quantities (ie, around a dozen).

NO, they are nothing to do with Kwik-fit!

They have been there for ages, and will sell you just one - like Monday's in the high street and Grippers, sadly long gone from Chelmsford. No pre-packed rubbish at inflated prices, containing more than you want!  :y

I've not even tried a nut on it yet, as I know its reverse thread, and I know I ain't got any ;D

I'm guess they are M5, as the calipers has a flat battery, and the spare battery has grown a white salty substance.  FFS, grrrr

And to end the day, she curbed the car driving me back from the pub.  A pub where I fancied a shandy with my grub, but they had no lemonade.

HTF can a pub not have lemonade?

Half the Pubs around here dont have Beer, instead they put on a new Beer Pump called 'Available Soon'.

For your M5 Bolt thingy, try these people - http://www.groupcomponents.com/

Their just around the corner from me, or about 1 mins from M25, J26 if your passing.
