    I drew up a roof rack from aluminium tube & used some profiled extrusions from Aalco's range of extrusions. It was something like the M101 Worked well :cool:

    Ignition barrel replacement

    Hey KW, Simon Holton has given me 89073-60212. He's also given me a locksmith company down south to try for a repair. You wouldn't have a hundy ignition barrel kicking about would you? Cheers

    Ignition barrel replacement

    Update: Canex, you need to know what is up & what is down! Button is underneath the assembly :laughing::laughing::laughing: I have extracted the barrel & the long brass coloured arm sticking out the end on your pictures does not move up when the key is turned... The electrical connector I...

    Ignition barrel replacement

    Okay, my barrel has failed. I have the trims off but struggling with what to press... There is a white plastic thing where your red circles are Canex which look like an electrical connector but I am very good at breaking things like this so am being cautious at the moment! Any further...

    Pulled into the garage car park this morning to get the ole tub of crap looked at (driving with that bluddy alarm ringing away isn't good for the tinnitus!!!) & the dashboard illuminations disappear & the alarm stops ffs...

    EGR blanking plates.

    The plates are laser cut from 6mm (IIRC) stainless steel plate - £25.00 a set posted. I can't help with the MOT issues but I could get some cut from thinner sheet if these would camouflage the installation as Frank was suggesting! I'd have to get these done soon though as I'm about to send a...

    Twin battery set up in the UK spec Colorado

    Aye, there's plenty you can do with these things but as the wife's shopping trolley, I just want to get it started An aside... If there were no antifreeze in the coolant & it froze up, would that prevent the thing turning over?
