  1. Hi. I had similar problem recently after having new rad fitted. Gav at unit 4 burton sorted for me at a reasonable cost, he can fit relatively easily (for him, not me) and a keen price. hth rich
  2. have you tried Junks on seloc ?, always comes up trumps for me richbk
  3. Great to have another expert in the area......unit 4 address, expect much confusion !!! Richbk
  4. next spring as in 2018 leigh ??? surely not ?
  5. i tried all sorts of fixes, using the 2 screws on the base of the doors front and aft to adjust the window rail alignment. no joy. then i went to gav at unit 4 in burton and asked him to fix it....and he did ! lesson learned richbk
  6. You seem to be looking at some big metal. What about an Audi A6 3.0tdi,or a Saab 95, or a 530d, or a vw passet estate, or a mondeo estate....... All will easily pull a trailer, some for a few k less than 5k - which means more track days. You are towing to a track not a rally stage Richbk
  7. Im pushing 80 miles - 2 trips to unit 4 !!! i do have shiny new things to look at though so worth while.
  8. Evening folks. I have ordered a bottle of renovo soft top reviver in black to bring my lotus and honda roofs back up to scratch for the summer. It suggests using the soft top cleaner to remove any old dirt / green stains etc. but TBH both my roofs are well kept, clean and in good nick so being tight I didn't want to spend £15 on a bottle of cleaner that i will probably only use 2/3 cap full of every other year. Does anyone know of a reason my normal car shampoo agitated into the roof and then well washed off shouldn't produce a clean enough surface to revive. ? I already have some of the waterproof coating to apply when all is clean and revived . Cheers Rich
  9. sounds like a great day....and good news on the mouse front, hope none stowed away !!!
  10. probably be snowing !!!!! roll on spring for sure, i took mine out for a run this week and spent a not inconsiderable time....sideways
  11. Sounds great Jon, keep us updated, "Petes Eats" in Llanberis is a great lunch stop right by the lake
  12. thanks guys, so it seems doable....any more recommendations of places to see on route ? richbk
  13. don't you need to update your profile pic luke ?? haven't had chance to pop round and see the new addition yet ??
  14. So for 3 years the son and heir has been badgering me to do a euro trip to include reims, milieu bridge, stelvio or similar and some big tunnels. Want to do it a little "wild" with a tent in the boot for impromptu camping but also think a comfy bed might appeal after 2/3 days hard driving. does anyone have a route or any experiences to share on trips they have done. is it feasible to do all this in 4 days on foreign soil ? Cheers Richbk
  15. working all week here too, retail rocks ehh scatty !! but off new years day, so hopefully will get a run out to the peaks if anyone is about ?
