Right so had a bit of a mare yesterday, pulled up to Gunwharf quays and saw smoke, thought nothing of it and when I came back there was some coolant on the floor.

Turns out the HCV had broken a plastic pipe, not good! No tools with me apart from my friends straight edge bottle opened which worked as a flathead we set about a fix.
Some random bloke gave me a builders clamp and some cutters which saved the day, clamps got the ford clips off and set about trying to bodge the pipes together with some broken plastic pipe from the HCV. Didnt work as we couldn't get the pipes to stay together as there wasn't enough plastic and the pipes are short one side so are a nightmare to get together, they need a lot of stretching. Doesn't help the samco is thicker than normal so the clip kept slipping off

Ended up just using the Samcos and putting them together to get home!

Image

Cold, but worked!

Then went to the scrapyard, after two of them breaking in the same way just trying to get the hose off it was third time lucky with a puma there.

Image

picked up some black caps that were lying around and a bonnet stay clip that Tedley broke! ha.

Image

Few minuites later and we're all standard again

Image

Tada! no airlocks, hot and cold working fine, happy days!

Image

Then I thought screw it, Might as well wash it. All was going fine until I finished polishing and a black cloud came over, only got to wax half the car annoyingly

£18 for 5 litres of snowfoam works well!

Image

scratch i've picked up on my rear quater, so annoying when you paint things and they get things like this! I knew it would happen.

Image

check out that shine! Just before the rain, I do recommend Cherry glaze!

Image

Image

Just looking forward to my wheels now.

From the moment I picked up your book until I laid it down, I was convulsed with laughter. Some day I intend reading it.
