  1. Upgrade to gold membership - and get a provenance cert from the factory as part of the deal. That’ll show you
  2. Another shed commissioned today. farmer presents me with final cheque and some drinkies very happy today
  3. It’s victory in Europe is it not?
  4. Bloody hell stevestrange is selling a busted one needing welding for £600!! i need to dig my busted one out the scrap bin
  5. £680 to service a watch......Maybe the new iPhone ain’t so expensive after all
  6. And she’s back. eBay is bloody awful sometimes
  7. Look on eBay for a triumph rubber boot for that gear gator
  8. ^^ exactly my experience today @TAR. In fact I had a blank form and they didn’t even want me to bother filling it out. They could see the age on the V5 and that was enough. i also quizzed AIB on the mot - they weren’t one bit bothered about mot exempt status....
  9. Well I’ve finally given up on selling the place and listed on Airbnb yesterday. The last week has been frantic sourcing furnishings and other stuff for it. listed yesterday and have our first booking paid for today let’s see if it works out Can do a deal
  10. Ok so today I can report back on my experience of the MG. I insure it through AIB this morning. it has no MOT and is currently the wrong tax class (so not free and needs to be changed to historic) take in the old V5 to the post office - 5 minutes later walk out with confirmation it’s taxed, name changed and road legal. now just need to get the welding done and a proper MOT as that whole concept of MOT exempt just doesn’t sit right
  11. Yep - absolutely true. changing the classification class to historic though for car tax purposes is an utter ball ache if it hasn’t been done already and I think they require an mot for that
  12. Mike - I cant express in words how sad that is. thoughts are with you chap
  13. Done plenty of old triumphs - this ones solid. Will have a really good poke this week and measure up. It’ll either have inner cill repair sections grafted in or whole floor. It always takes much long to just plate up old cars and it ain’t any cheaper to do and takes longer to patch
  14. It’s really solid - it is only small. Still a whole floor ain’t expensive - I’ll pop and get the grinder
  15. Something popped up on my Facebook market Friday morning that I simply couldn’t refuse. Been away in Newcastle all week working and was back home Friday bored - so off I shot for something for the weekend. Never had an MG before - needs a small patch welding and an mot
  16. It’s amazing just how many lotus cars are driving around with 10 year old tyres
  17. Just collected a little MG - mot exempt. first job is to weld up the hole in the floor by the rear spring hanger and take for an mot. It’s a frankly stupid rule
  18. And what a bloody superb job you made of them . Onwards and upwards chap - all the recommendations have been well deserved
  19. Substance and Porsche discussion in one topic ? Nope - don’t believe it
  20. Reckon we are about to find out.....
  21. He’s right though. If them fuel tanks are original - then it’s amazingly common how rust and crap going through the lines can cause such symptoms
  22. I simply used the wide stuff - stuck it to the brushy bit and trimmed it down with a nice sharp Stanley knife
