1800 ti no fuel pump

Put you hand on enough voltage and you will probably wet yourself - I used to work with 60KV overhead projectors that would make your eyes water

Electricity is not so difficult - rather like plumbing - if you have a break in the pipe you lose water pressure

SE5a gearbox oil leak

You just have to be careful to make sure you don't push the rods back into the box once you have taken the rails off them - otherwise not a difficult job but is long time since I last did it.

1800 ti no fuel pump

the DVLA are useless

...and everyone with a tax exempt car loses straight away. That’ll go down well.. They tax the insurance anyway and as Mark says we do very little mileage - most people with tax free car have a car they pay road tax on anyway - it cost me £810 in road tax and I have one free, still in 9 years time ...

Put the tax on petrol and the staff problem goes away and so does the number of people who drive around without paying tax - and you pay for what you use

Coupe kick plates, any recommendations.

The normal Scimitar ones although about 1 inch longer fit very well. I fitted a new pair of plates to my MB and used to old plates in the Coupe.Unfortunately the plates I removed from the Coupe I cut up to make fog light brackets.
