i got it eventually
the new engine hoist was fun as well :lol:
so nick , thanks very much for the hospitality and the spares , much appreciated mate
You are more than welcome mate, but payback time will come as you have started my brain going (no easy task :cheesy: ). Now, how much is a chillcast box......
I suspect that the "engine hoist" (or at least one side of it) is showing distinct signs of discolouration this morning! :cheesy:
As an aside, my H*nda decided to do a 99 impression on my way out last night. Remember the steam? The water pump seals decided to give up :evil: but at least it is an excuse to take the Carly out today :cheesy:

Yes the engine hoist does indeed have some discolouration! Two big black bruises! Cheers for the bits Nick, Im sure they will be put to good use!
Thats a bummer about the lude, my exhaust only needed rehung, the decat pipe had slipped back towards the rear silencer! simple things eh!
Good news on the exhaust, that is one very smart car you got there for a bargain price! Wish I had bid on it now! :cheesy:
Better news on the lude today, got it on the ramp and it is actually the bottom corner of the rad that has gone. New rad £74, new pads for the brakes (£12 and £14) and a new cv joint (£32) arrived today. Guess I will be busy tomorrow :evil: . At least I was pleasantly surprised at H*nda parts prices, these are of course trade and ex VAT from my parts supplier.
