Maybe Albs could do with le upgrade?   8)

I would LOVE to own that!  Bit of a crap place for a spaer wheel, what with the boot being so enormous!

Be nice if they could have put the donk where the spare wheel is, instead of about 6' ahead of the front axle. ;D

Oh and then there's the Dear Leaders of Wales and Scotland throwing a spanner in the works!  ;D

Yep, there'll be a week of butt hurt from them, as usual, before they implement precisely the same policies themselves. ;D

There's nothing physically preventing the 3.0 wiring/sensors/ecu from being used on the 3.2 block and vice versa ;)
Very interesting, I didn't think anyone could do anything mapping wise with any of those old ecus anymore. I intend to use a standalone management system when the track toy comes together.  The hardware is cheaper than it used to be, it's the calibration time on  rolling road which costs.

Get yourself a wideband lambda sensor and do it on the road. :y
Yes, that would be better, and some management systems now have a degree of self learning from a closed loop lambda. I wish I'd worked harder at school, learning this stuff in my 50s is much harder and of limited use in the electrified world we are heading towards.  Still fun though!
I swapped from twin DCOEs to a Megasquirt system on my Westfield and within an afternoon I had it running better than it ever did on carbs and drinking a third less fuel. All with just a wideband lambda sensor and a laptop on the passenger seat. :y

I don't understand how they think that's a good idea ???

If something happens then they're not insured, the car's not insured and throw a dose of TWOC into it and there's the whole unemployment situation and dealer reputation damage... Not to mention fixing/replacing the car and all the hassle that goes with that.
I think they probably are insured. Motor dealers insurance or something.
Its usually liability only...
Which won't cover the spotted yoof wrapping it around a post at Maccy Ds :-X
Indeed. I doubt it'll cover SD&P use at all. ::)

Treated front fence & side gates with wood stain , they were looking pretty grim but now like new well pleased..😎

Can you do mine? Itís only 50yds long.  ::)
.   


Did the back garden earlier in the year about the same size as yours did 3 or 4 panels a day took about a week in all easy, so do it yourself 😄😃😀

I need to do one of my fences which is a couple of years old and looked OK when new, but is now looking pretty weathered.  :-\

The problem is that the neighbours painted their side a horrible diarrhea colour and it's Cuprinol as well which is expensive. Ho hum.  ::)
So what? You're side doesn't have to match their side.

Some naga chicken and a gallon of lager and I'm sure it wouldn't take too many attempts to get a colour match. :y

Come on, Mr Wood, show us your lockdown hippy look ;D

Clean shaven here, I'm afraid, so unable to oblige. Someone has to maintain standards. ::)
Kevin Wood, the responsible one?
Not really, I've give up ironing shirts. Not much point wearing them when there's hardly anyone else in the office. ;D

I have three Aico EI161E alarms which link together using the same wiring scheme as you describe. Been very happy with them. Not a single false alarm.

They replaced another set of Aico alarms which were trouble free for 20 years. They don't last forever, though, so maybe it's time to just swap to some new ones?

You can get several different sensor types in that range and mix and match them, so no problem with getting a heat sensor for the kitchen.

He's having some difficulty getting in. Too many St. Ella's, maybe? :D

I guess dogging is ok again from tomorrow in small groups of 6 or less  ;D
more than 6 if the windows are up  :-\   :D

If they reduce the 2 metre to 1 metre as is being mooted, then having sex doggy style with a stranger should be OK;D

Depends which stranger, I suppose. ;)

Not me someone else.  ::)

I collected a nice scrape in the drivers door on the Mondeo today in Tesco's car park.  >:(  On the plus side the guy was honest, promised to pay for the damage and I have his (London  ::)) address and phone number.

I'll have ago at polishing it out this afternoon, but to be honest I'm tempted to put it into the bodyshop, get them to sort it and all the other dings and scratches, and send him the bill!  ::)

Didn't think us grockles were supposed to be going there! ::)
