  1. No that's authentic good quality original filth. Not modern crap repro Chinese flap filth. It stays.

  2. I rue the day I cleaned the dashboard of its 6 years of filth.
    Never been the same since.

  3. You’ve looked at my bus and said
    Marmite my ain’t all that bad

    Keep the faith
  4. Painted stuff.
  5. As its warmed up and I'm back in shorts full-time I decided it was the ideal outfit to use the grinder in. Needed to chop off a couple of nuts. So donning my full ppe of short shorts, hoody with dangly drawstrings, and long hair, I hacked my nuts off.
    Which meant I could then waggle me balljoints and select which set of torsion arms I would be reusing.
    So I now have 4 torsion arms and 2 hub carriers to clean and paint ready to reassemble.
    It's s small start. But spurred on by the fact that my schiessenbulli will be tax and mot exempt in a couple of months so I can get away with only rebuilding some of the steering, suspension and brakes before putting it back on the road:thumbsup:
    This may be an extremely fast reassembly now, but scream if you want to go faster
  6. And I was not happy with my steering box after its little adventure last year, felt very sloppy and wouldn't adjust away, so I've picked up a good second hand unit, cleaned it up and going to take my old one off and fit the new one.
    So there.

  7. Yaay! He’s back. Any room in the conservatory yet, or is that a stupid question?

  8. Ha!
    It was lovely for a couple of months but its become more shed like again recently due to all my work gear:rolleyes:
    Plans are afoot to do a conservatory conversion to prevent it becoming a shed/workshop though!
  9. I've 2 sets of hub carriers and I just noticed one set has hollow spindles and the other has solid.
    Both sets off a late, so any reason for that or any difference?
  10. Think one is for the speedo cable to run through.
