It's to Doo up and punt on.

Got it for 200 beer tokens in the end.

It's got 3 new tyres (there were four, but his dad gubbed one) and two nearly new snow tyres and a new Oldham battery, so thats the plus.

On the minus, she needs a turbo, but the engine starts 1st time and sounds ok. Needs a reversing lamp & lens, rear seat cushion got fag burns and engine bay bit manky.

But faaakin ell, two andred smackers as Spot would say Very Happy

I'll get photo's soon JC. Been pricing parts.

Front discs locally, 28 quid each. Pads 29 quid
Rear discs, 76 quid EACH (they have a bearing built in) and pads 27 quid.

Turbo's anything from 150 to 300, but I'll ask my local engineering shop if they can fix it. That way I know it's been done right.

Timing belt kit 93 quid, oil & filters 50 quid.

I think the rear discs will need to be cleaned up rather than replaced as they are just rusty. Can get them machined for about 25 quid each.

Other than that, just a general tidy up and a damn good clean and several goings over with the vacuum cleaner.

Save money on the disks. I'm fairly sure you give it new pads and say the brakes have just been done, it will sell for the same amount.

Timing belt again if it's not broken, mind you if someone who knows about timing belt's buy's it... don't know.

Ha ha ha, Cat, I wouldn't sell someone something I wasn't happy with.

A timing belt snapping could write the car off, so it would get done.

At the end of the day, if I decide not to spend money on it, but break it for parts instead, I'll get my money back and have some parts for her indoors car. Hers is semi auto SX and this is a manual LX. All body panels are the same.

But yeah, I couldn't sell it knowing it was faulty. I'm a coont, but not that much of one Neutral

Andi,

I would buy a car from you without hesitation...

My comment came from just opening a standing order for 24/36 months for £100 per month to a dentist - had the first root canal last Thursday...had to loosen my belt when he got to the bottom of the molar!

Wish you could do teeth mate!

Sorry to hear that VFC Crying or Very sad

I had root canal, but they advise diabetics don't get it done. I learned that when I almost died from poisoning and a HUGE abscess. They injected 18 needles into my gum and even directly into the tooth (THAT fuckingwell hurt Mad ) Then, eventually they gave me antibiotics and I came back a bit later to find the head dentist had come from Edinburgh to treat me, such was my case. Lucky for me as she, in front of a student dentist, managed to inject my gums without pain and pulled the tooth with the abscess intact.

I would have let that woman kick me in the nuts she was so gentle...
