  1. L know what ya mean but i can't afford the insurance to only use it occasionally. We'll see.
  2. Well the tina is back in the garage for another year. Was gonna use her as the second car but not needed now. Not sure what the future holds for her as next year i need to get my campervan built and then i have a ford cargo horsebox to sort. I've had her for 15 years now so not an easy decision to make :(

    Well the hazards were working then the stopped, flashed once then stopped altogether. The indicators work fine. Tried a spare switch nothing, bought a zwitch from craig, thanks by tbe way, but tbey still don't work. I assume 3 switches all can't be fault so what else should i check oh and there is poeer to the switch as tested that
  5. Hadn't heard of them before but i got one of craig.
  6. Scrap yards as such don't really exist over here unfortunately
  7. if ya let me know i'll grab one off ya
  8. before i put the speedo back in i gave it a twist with pliers to make sure it was engaged in the box and when i let go it spun back and made sure it was pushed right in a back of cluster. wipers are the one thing that have kept on working. and the hazards worked yesterday but stopped today aggghhhhhh.
  9. silly statement but i take it they work :).how much to post to ireland
  10. she's been off the road since summer 2019 with the intention of restoring her but the work was gonna be more than i could afford so it became a patch up job but still getting rid of the major rust .i was hoping to have her on the road to take my boy to school this week but she's chucked up one problem afte the other with electrics and silly little leaks.as she stands i thought i'd got the speedo working but no she has other ideas,fuel gauge don't work now,reversing lights have stopped and after taking her up the lane ididn't even enjoy driving her so i think after 15 years i'm gonna get rid.ya know when you just lose all interest in something well she's worn me down to that point.
  11. are new ones available these days.mine is an early mk5,79,and has the 6 pins in the back
  12. Think i might have found a solution. I found things called bed sheet clips that i think will work
  13. Few and far between over here. The trouble is the material has literally rot right where it folds over the frame
  14. Not sure where to put this so i thought it could be a discussion :) My mk5 rear seat base has split right across the rear where it fixes to the frame now i was gonna take the cover off and see if a local taylor could saw on lengths of elastic hoops so i could hook it back but i found the seat cover is sawn to the padding etc underneath. What could be my options for fixing it. I could make holes in the seem and use cable ties but i really need something elasticated as tbe cover will need to stretch if anyone sits on it.
  15. Cheers for that. I'll whip the wheel and drum off at some point and check
  16. I can't see how to delete this post but i found what I need
  17. Hi all Was moving the car yesterday from the garage and she's chucked up a couple of issues which I'm sure the knowledgeable ones will know the cause:). She ticks over ok but when i touch the accelerator she wants to stall. Secondly when reversing she's good for about 10ft then the rear pass wheel locks so i stopped and then moved back again until it locked again after 10ft and she kept on doing it. Tia
  18. Has anyone get a pair of the front corner bumper brackets that bolt onto the front wings for sale. I only thought i needed one as i cut it in have but as i seem to have lost the entire front bumper with brackets and corners i think I'd better get both lol
  19. I know it's a long way off but i guess at some point with all this electric this and electric that do you worry what the future holds for you babies. I have my cortina and a 90 ford cargo and a little newer mk2 iveco daily and i often wonder if at some point they end up on the scrap heap.
  20. Glad they are reusable. Cheers for ya help
  21. After asking a few times with no joy in finding a brown chatsworth seat I'm going to have to try and get mine repaired. How easy is it to undo the metal clips that hold the fabric on and if anyone has replaced theirs did you reuse them or did you use something else like cable ties etc.
