Finding more and more little quality touches, these little tabs on the back of the seat are cool.

I hear you David.

I used to have to do cars on my gravel driveway with a car port for cover, or a wind tunnel as it often was!

I started renting a small unit (about the size of a double garage) up at a local place which is perfect for doing one car at a time, more than ample for the hobbyist I am.
A bigger unit (where the Y10 is now) became available last year which I share with a friend (the Peugeot owner) where we can store or work on cars in the dry and relative warm. Nice bright electrics inc 3 phase should we require it, even an inside loo washroom! Rent isn't too bad either, only downside is it being a 30 to 40 minute drive away from home depending on traffic.

We also had the fortune for it to have an inspection pit previously installed by the HGV repair people who rented it, a proper steel sided one with lights and steps. Not quite as deep as a normal car one though as they did trailer repairs, they'd not be able to reach otherwise! But is very handy. I had to make some removable covers for it though as was left open!

Comes in handy though, more so in a lot of ways than a ramp which would be permanently taking up space.

Y10 only just wide enough for it though! My lads' Hillman Imp has to be used very carefully over it!

A good sized workshop is a wonderful place to be in! Do you have pit boards?

Yes Richard, strong covers for the pit, had to make them myself tough as there was just an open pit when I got there!


Started to collect a few bits and bobs for the car, new rear hatch struts amongst them so as an easy fit I thought I'd get the ball rolling  Grin

Still busy with the integrale but hoping to be able to do a few jobs to the Y10 soon, ready for a fresh MoT next Spring.

Managed to find the source of the oil leak on the Y10, had hoped a simple job like the cam cover gasket as the oil was running down from the top...seems my hope it was just this gasket and not more serious was justified

Corner of the gasket was way off following the cover!


Hope it won't be too much longer before I get to patch the floor and get an MoT on it

I am in the process of salvaging another load of Y10 bits, not GTie though. If you need any bits and bobs I may be able to help. I am away after this week till mid July but then I will be due a trip to north Lincs.

Hi Frank.
I'd be interested in taking any spares that would be suitable for the car, no problem in storing them and you never know when you might need something.

Managed to get a few more jobs done on the car now.
The oil leak was fixed last time so now the engine has been pressure washed it stops it smelling of burning oil within a minute of starting.
Changed the cambelt for peace of mind.
Welded up a small hole in the floor to sill underneath.
New side repeaters fitted so it's about ready for an MoT now, I'll take it in a few weeks so then I can at least get some use out of it this year.

The passenger side gained a couple of scrapes on the door and rear 1/4 panel from the confines of it's parking place, or maybe the trailer ride home, either way they stuck out like a sore thumb.

About 10 years ago I had a Prisma in what I recall was the same colour, knew I had an aerosol for a small repair to that so I dug it out and it still had paint and worked...and was the same colour code!


Sanded the scrapes, primed them, basecoat and lacquer all from aerosols so won't be a long term solution but has tidied it enough for now.


Looking forward to taking it for a run now.
