Re: Today I mostly .....

Took three of the kids over to Ipswich to see my sister and to borrow one of those roof box things, a nice empty A14 on the way back, 3 kids in the car, roof box on, kepping at a steady 70 and I was the slowest person on the road! I think I was overtaken by everybody.

Re: Today I mostly .....

Hurrah! Thanks to Mr Haynes and my dad with his big collection of weird bendy spanners I have successfully changed the alternator on the Zafira and the old one definitely had knackered bearings. Also there seems to be no logic to the putting together of a car. For example to remove the alternator un...

Re: Samara pickup

LoL possibly owning a lada is a sign of non conformity..................(I am still bereft, the bank balance hovers between little cash and less cash) and she who must be obeyed has firmly laid down the law when it comes to borrowing from the man, as in it has to be for the betterment of the househo...

Re: Samara pickup

Sorry :D I wasn't implying they weren't, is this the badger cull? top work, the rumour around here is that half of the many badgers seen lying on the verge have been shot and dumped to make it look like an accident. I've never wanted to start poking around in one to find out if it's true :shock:

Re: Samara pickup

Is that something to do with "Freeman on the land" because if it is, it works really well until you get to court then when everyone has stopped laughing you usually get a fine.

Be careful if something sounds to good to be true it usually is.

Re: Today I mostly .....

RRahhh! I have anger :evil: First the Zafira engine starts up with a whine from the Alternator, so a mendy book and an alternator are duly purchased on the basis that I have to start somewhere (still waiting to arrive) and then today blatting through Six Mile Bottom (don't ask) at a stately 30, over...

Re: Ebay - "Today I Mostly Bought...."

Good stuff, we saw some of that in our local Aldi but couldn't think of a good use for it. (we don't go camping much). Last week I bought a Zafira manual and next week I'm going to get an alternator. For the moment i'm putting the stereo on loud so I don't hear the whine and holding my breath every ...
