My apologiesÖhad some personal issues (dying dog) so this kind of got de-prioritised. Again my apologies.

We also have a 2003 232,000 miles BMW type Mini Cooper S in the UK which is still on its original supercharger, never mind engine and ancillaries. A really well made car which is huge fun to drive. Its a London car so small marks on every panel and its worth diddly squat but to replace it? With what and at what cost?
I think we will drive it till it dies like our Landcruiser.

Hi Chris. Yes thatís exactly it. But I need to send my apologies because Roddy Young sent me a washer last week, so Iím no longer looking.

I should have updated the thread. Apologies if Iíve wasted your time.

Thanks, Michael

Then we think alike Stanley.
However I do get momentarily ever so slightly peeved when friends and acquaintances show off their new acquisitions (which generally depreciate like a stone and are sold/traded on by our friends at 5/6 years old with max 50k miles on the clock) and mutter about Jacky and I 'having' to drive old vehicles. They never seem to grasp it is our choice.

Yes - I remember arriving at work in my newly purchased 6 year old Xantia in perfect condition with a full history for 1700 quid. A colleague said "You like driving old bangers don't you?".

Mercedes 300TE - brown, plastic seats, counting down to 250,000.  Gets me lots of breakfasts at Ikea etc when friends need big stuff moving.  Load liner for the boot shifting compost and dump runs.  Four roof rails.  Self levels.  Tows a Flavia, at least 87% of a Flavia...

Car went for scrap today but I have removed the full stainless exhaust and some other parts before it went. Having a look at the exhaust, I cannot see any reason why it wouldn't fit the turbo as well as the non turbo as it appears identical from the flexi rearward.

I think Aurelias used a coil spring between cup washers to give some adjustment to the friction required by the choke and hand throttle levers under the steering column.

Agree - my daily motor is a 1999 Isuzu Trooper 3.5 petrol V6. Done 176,000 miles and apart from routine things like discs, pads etc it has needed only a new starter motor at 150,000 miles, never even a clutch reline. Now needs an EGR valve for the MOT but really it owes me nothing. It was a bargain when I bought it because petrol, green and short wheelbase which the punters don't want but all of which suit me. Green particularly is very useful when looking for the car in the supermarket car park.  Smiley

My Augusta is now registered and just awaits the departure of salt before taking to the road. The DVLA were pleasingly quick in issuing an age related number - 12 days from posting my application to the arrival of the V5.

Years ago we decided to fit seat belts in our B20. It was fairly simple to fit three point belts. Two short straps fitted to the floor in the middle coming up under the centre armrest. The long strap was fitted to the floor just behind the doors and to the small steel triangle behind the B-post just under the window. It comes up from behind the inner panel. We have now bought a set of belts with reels. Again it is simple in the centre. The long one with the reel, however, needs a few brackets. One bracket fitted to the above mentioned triangle and sticking up from behind the panel and another bracket fitted to the floor against the outer side member. We had the brackets made of stainless steel. Of course the triangle under the side window is not terribly strong, but it is better than nothing.
