Have a look on Google Earth. I think it's the buildings with what looks like a car scrapyard at the back, which I recall reading is no more.

correct. when you get the image on google earth, Timbuks place is the big green unit closest to the(now not there) scrapyard.

oh and i've now got my cambelt kit trough the post, slightly different to the one i did on my 1.8 eco astra :D

Kevin, as a newbie can i nominate myself :D? could be a warm welcome gift ;)

Also, anyone bringing a breaker or something? Ordered a front wheel hub together with the cam kit + water pump today but don't have a powerful wrench for it :(. My torque wrench max is 210nm, is that enough for the bearing nut?

Autovaux has next day delivery (7) and even Saturday morning delivery (13 - possibly even to the meet?) in case someone's missed something.

As posted earlier, Bob, have a look at Google Earth, and Multimap. It looks very straightforward, (so see you Sunday PM).   ::) ::)

try maps.google.co.uk and type in your post code then TF11 8SD for destination. it's already got the address and gives you directions which could also be printed.

Got the cambelt kit etc the other day but forgot to get the bl**dy antifreeze DOH :( Can anyone pick some up for me on trade club and i'll square up with them on saturday please, its the red one

I just received my order and autovaux kindly decided to send 1x5l of antifreeze as they didn't have 3x1l (which i'd oredered) in stock. This means i'll have some 2l spare to share  :y

60 miles of A road for me!

Unless you are coming from the depths of Scotland.....you probably won't win the distance prize

145 miles for me. Depending on where in Kent you are, probably
30-40 miles further for you.

Another full tank of petrol over the round trip! :'( :'(
