The nearest I could figure is 'Titainium pearlescent' Dan. Sometimes when you look at it, it has a tint of gold, other times a tint of green.
i have not advertised anywhere else as I would prefer to sell her to someone looking for one rather that buying on a whim

Wish I could drive he more Bibs, did my back in 18 months ago - bulge in l4,l5 & l5s1 and trapped a nerve to the front right leg, still doing physio (sp?) so she is comfortable to drive but I pay for it the day after ?
I will try and get some more photos up soon. She really is a lovely car and I hope some buys her soon so they can enjoy the summer and she can get an airing. It's a shame for her to sit there in the insulated garage unseen, especially as she is mechanically roadworthy as she is and the paintwork is only noticeable when up close.

Man in the high castle was great, but must get round to seeing the 2nd series.
I really got into Black Sails, watched all four seasons in a week.
the only reason I had Amazon tv was because my email and Amazon accounts were hacked by someone buying phones and he accivated the month free trial. Found out about him when someone in the USA called me to confirm an order! He had been deleating all emails regarding his transactions.
anyway, love the free next day deliveries

Ok, for the first time in years, my car Nearly failed the MOT !
Top ball joints, play in the wheel bearing and a fuel leak. To top it off I had to plug an air mixture screw hole as the screw was missing ! So the hc was around a 1000.
The mot tester at kwik fit was a decent chap, he should have failed it but he didn't ?
Anyway, as soon as I got home after replacing a fuel line in the parking area, the car was straight up on the ramps and wheels off. The top joints were ordered from SJ and while I was at it I ordered some ARB bushes. Anyway they are all fitted and the wheel bearing sorted.Oh, I I fitted a new cam belt while I was at it ?
now to the carbs, I ordered a new mixture screw and fitted it, then set out to balance them.... Yer right, 2 of the other mixture screws had siezed solid, ended up having the drill them and get them out with a stud extractor. So, as I had to order another 2 screws I figured I may as well replace them all, and while I was at it, as I had to tap the the threads out I may as well get a service kit. So carbs are off, this gave me access to the area underneath so that's now had a clean. I realised that the cam covers were weeping so SJ got another order and 'while I was on line ordering, I ordered all the rear suspension rubbers too.
I have took the carb on the left to work today and gave it a clean, the other one is in the jeep now so I can get it done tomorrow , oh, gave the regulator a polish too ?

Possibly, Brian Angus emailed the shaft and washer to me when my shaft broke as they are no longer in stock

247. Dodgy S3 turbo ............. Hopefully !
oooh just realised she is 35 years old today ?

Cleaning the rims are a pain, I didn't think of removing a bolt at a time though!
I have heard its hard to get them to seal properly too so personally would not split them. Saying that - aren't the wheels supposed to be split to change the tires anyway?

128. Dodgy '81 esprit turbo
Posted December 19, 2014
No idea bud, usually I get a misfire if it's old fuel but she's running sweet, probably had the probe up the turbo exhaust and it only does a tic over test? Not doing enough mileage in her to justify keeping her now ,2000 in 3 years!
Sorry to read Erik, selling/buying property is one of the most stressful things one can go though! Really feel for you
Loty passed the MOT after being 2 months overdue
Something not quite right though :- Co = 0.25% and Hc = 512 , co gone down and hc up since the last mot 510 miles ago
Like your way of thinking
Booked in for 1.30 today .............
