  1. On my old excel I thought they looked crap so replaced them with the proper ones, rare or not.
  2. I guess the govenment was scared they would lay off staff if they didnt let them.
  3. You wouldnt want to turn it upside down would you. Looks like enough metal to hold the screen and not much else.

    If we are lucky that the school where we are hoping one of our foster young people will go next year for 6th form.
  5. Just what we need at current time. I guess there is a chance of 30-40 in that crowd with covid 19. Even with face masks which wont do a lot there is a lot of close contact there for a number of hours. Sadly it probably wont be these people that will be really ill but their relatives, shop staff, nurses etc
  6. Been there, done that , no thankyou.
  7. Didnt read the blurb but whats the story re the l/h rear lotus badge being upside down.
  8. Back in the late 90s we used to get the father of the neighbour to our workshop park on the double yellows totally blocking access to our yard. Would wave his disabled permit and say he can park where he wants!!!! After 5 or 6 times we started bumping the backend round and pointing it at the kerb. Nice and easy with 2 of us and a fiat uno. Not sure you could do it now with the weight of todays cars.
  9. My wife got a letter for one of those 4-5 days back, its not turned up yet but she has registered for it.
  10. I love the bit at the end where she threatens the watching police with a "Nuremberg type tribunal" and saying they should up hold "this law" waving what I assume was a bible above her head. Nut job. There are tiny snipits you could agree with but mixed with a whooooooole lot of rubbish. However she talks as much logic as Trump and he managed to get voted in so who knows. Bring back the sandwich board " the end of the world is nigh" type fruit cake. Every town used to have one, always bought a smile to my face on a trip in to town.
  11. Doesnt really support the factory does it. I know they released the parts list as PDFs for clubs but not the manuals . I know its expensive but I bought the factory manuals for both my excel and esprit and if you are keeping the car for more than 5 minutes they are worth every penny. There are some jobs you need the specs for or assembly details of so they really are very handy to have.
  12. My son's girlfriend started as a junior Dr 4 weeks ago and is now recovering from covid 19. Not to be taken lightly from what she has said and she is a healthy young woman.
  13. And yesterday he finished his phase one training. Very proud parents as you would imagine.
  14. I guess also the lack of the daily shop for odds and ends affects how much and when we buy. One of us goes once a week and if we run out of milk or eggs before hand , tough we wait. There is no popping over the road to the corner shop we make do with what we have. I have already noticed our recycle bin which was always rammed is now 2/3rds full before collection.
  15. It is amazing how they seem to be able to write in English but not understand it. No I am being unkind they really cant be that thick, perhaps its a google translate f**k up and they really meant something else.
