Gilbern comparison

The strongest thing about that car is the roll-cage, but it doesn't appear to have much to bolt into.

Does anyone know anything about se5a TIL2921

AFAIK, the TIL registration plates were issued in year 2000 in County Fermanagh. I thought a car couldn't receive a new registration number?

Welcome. Your car should get some value from being so rare over there on the other side of the world.

'A' post repair ? how structural ?

A further Bugger. That's much as mine was, though the damage extends further up the A-post. It IS repairable but it's going to take time. Roger already posted a link to my thread which will give you an idea of what's in there.

New member on the hunt.

Welcome and good hunting. :) Another idea is to place a Wanted ad on Gumtree, etc. Sometimes it teases out owners who haven't got around to selling, and your'e not competing with other buyers. That's how I got mine. There might be one out there with an owner waiting until the market pick-up in spring.

The Beige Se5a : rebuild becomes Omega conversion

There were no dramas getting the front of the engine built again, so it lives once more. A video if you can wait on OneDrive calling it up :

Garage advice possibly concrete prefab

I had a pre-fab concrete job at our previous house, which I bought around 20 years ago (the garage, not the house :) ) I'll agree on the 2:1 price of brick/block : sectional concrete. I didn't have big condensation issues, but a friend of mine about 3 miles away who had the same type of garage from ...

Stupid mistakes you thought you'd never make

"How could anyone be so stupid as to connect a car battery the wrong way around?" Well, I had to wait until I was 49, but I did it for the first time last month. During the winter I've been applying much TLC to my stepson's neglected 2005 Hyundai Coupe. Said car is 'maintained' by somebody else, but...

Replacement battery cost over £500.

I fully agree, Simmit, that's a major design failure for so much costly work to ensue from the simple task of changing a battery.

Have a hoot!-Paris in the 60's

:D Even if that seems a bit set-up, I love how Paris traffic is so anarchic, but nobody seems to get super-upset about it. It's just accepted as the way the traffic works. Much swearing and fisticuffs would ensue in the UK if the same behaviour were repeated. (Caveat : my observation is only based o...
