  1. Wow James Just noticed the size of the air condenser on your car, is that oe Porsche or after market, must make it reasonably cool in there the turbo is half that size kev
  2. What I do is drain into a 15 ltr bucket and empty into the previous oil change containers, then you put in the same amount as what came out and take it from there! I don't think I would let those guy's loose on my car again! Many years ago following stock car racing, we use to carry out body repairs on a number of write off's, had a celette churchhill jig so knew everything was straight, anyway one car we did was an almost new a MG Metro which needed a new front end with less than a thousand miles on the clock, it was a non runner so dropped the engine repaired the front end and put it back together, started it up and clouds of white smoke, after a lot of investigation took the head off as suspected head gasket put it back together and still lots of smoke. After a number of hours did an oil change and guess what no smoke! the oil removed was as new but appeared thin, what we suspected was an oil change was carried out with incorrect oil and either the mechanic or the owner picked the car up and on driving looked in the mirror at all the smoke and went into the car in front! and then written off. I have lots of story's like this, seems we got a lot of the dud one's but can laugh about it now kev
  3. Hi Guy's Thanks for the update I had a rebuilt one fitted in 2015 by SCS @ £325.00 plus vat and labour @ 56,000 miles, I think it was just before Jonny started doing them, shame as I would have had one of his! but if the original lasted some 26 years not too bad kev
  4. Thing is this car does not look too bad, people don't mind purchasing say a SC or Carrera which has had new front/back wings inner outer seals, floor pans resprays etc which may or may not of been carried out on a jig, in fact they most lightly prefer it. And the work will most lightly be a lot more than a cat d but I suppose it is not on the car's record, what is all that about! kev

    My daughter got married a couple of weeks ago, so could not resist a photo shoot outside the church
  7. I like the 3 x spoke wheel, never thought the 4 x spoke suited the car, mine is a 3 x spoke with a crest in the centre completely standard

    Winter is Here

    Well finally found out how Mr mouse got in there, the front a/c condensor cooling fan housing which fits into the air vent shown had a small bit broken, the mouse was getting through vent into the motor housing and then into the bottom of the luggage compartment! but all repaired now kev
  11. Looks like I need a new restaurant for Saturday night any recommendations, years ago we use to use a French place about 5 miles outside Le Mans they did not speak English and we do not speak French too well, it was a bit of a lottery what you got to eat, one night one of the guy's ordered what he thought was a good dish only to be given sheep's brains we did and still laugh over that one. Shame the old guy died and the place closed. On Sunday we stay at the Acropole in Bernay it has a fantastic restaurant next door family run, we have been going some 25 years and the people all come out and greet us and wave us off in the morning, they cook the steaks over a fire in the restaurant and it is the best steak ever, when we was there 2 x years ago they got out an old photo album with our cars from year 2000, keep on meaning to take misses S, one day! They have a pool as well which is great after the drive, kev
