  1. You could do worse than to do your DSC1. A good course in my opinion. David.
  2. At the moment Wales against Ireland is a long way off and need not/should not be thought about. We have to get past Scotland first. One game at a time is Gatland's mantra and he is right in that respect. David.
  3. How many would have turned out in the middle of the holidays? Just asking you understand! David.
  4. As someone who spent a bit of time doing medical photography professionally the kit to do proper retinal scans is pretty sophisticated. The lens required and the illumination system are unlikely to be found on the average phone. If you put something the size of a phone close to and in front of the eye it is going to be dark in there. David.
  5. My first FAC was for a 22lr, 223 and a 7 x 64. Get all your paperwork in order and think about exactly what you are going to say and how you are going to logically answer the most difficult questions they can ask. Good luck, David.
  6. I saw them in Aberdeen when I was a student. Balmedie beach before the Donald got there. Hurtigruten did have an offer which stated if you went on one of there specialist Northern Lights trips and didn't see them you got another trip. Whether this still stands I don't know. I think on the cruised you get your board and lodging but the booze price will make you wince. Take your duty free allowance. David.
  7. The Manchester price is pretty well what I pay for PPU in 223! David.
  8. I sat in one the other day and they have fixed the reason I finally gave up on them. Being tall I used to find the shelf on the door where the window and mirror controls were kept used to give me terrible pain in the knee. They have got rid of the shelf by moving the controls Gloriously simple solution so I think it is a great idea. Still has great off road potential I reckon. Like all the Jimny predecessors it is what it is. David.
  9. Have you thought of putting a couple of boxes of standard shells through it to bed it all in and polish the running surfaces? David.

    I don't really think so on a number of grounds, but the main one was that of the four people in the Paris car, one was wearing a seatbelt and survived and three weren't and died. Crashing one of those big mercs with everybody strapped in just isn't a reliable enough way to get the job done. David.

    Well at least he was smart enough to wear his seatbelt, unlike a certain princess! David.
  12. I suspect a lot of the trucks, and I see it on the North Wales Expressway, are foreign registered and are probably not pursued as rigorously as they might be. David.
  13. Huskies sometimes just lose the fuel pipe connection to the carb, if so that is just a push fit. David.

    Cancelled order? David.
  15. The British market for this type of SUV isn't huge. Soft roaders do sell in droves I agree. As I said earlier there have always been variants to the Jimny but they never made it into the UK. David.
  16. It isn't going to be bigger. There are huge tax benefits in Japan for the short overall length. I would like a longer one as well but we aren't a big enough market. David.
  17. I've had two Jimnys and neither of them wouldn't go in a straight line. Your rental had probably been "kerbed" very hard or seriously lacked tyre pressure on one side.# David.

    Wage packets

    Just out of interest, can you still insist on being paid in real money, or has the act been repealed? David.
  19. They never sold any other versions of the original Jimny in this country even though there were variants in other countries. David.
  20. The square shape is very like a small G Wagen to my eyes. With the current political climate, no real surprise that there isn't a diesel. David.
  21. I think you might struggle then, the 325 stopped being made some time before Browning introduced invector plus chokes. David.
  22. Look on the BASC website and see if you can have a try under the wildfowling scheme. Might be better to see if you fit in first. David. PS. I don't know where "northwest" on your location is precisely but we might have a vacancy next season on the Rhyl and Conwy. David.
  23. Do you mean a 525? The later ones of them are invector plus. David.
  24. I don't think I would want to run a diesel engine for 20K without an oil change. David.
  25. Well a grand slam bomb did back in the 1940s. The original quote I was disagreeing with was this " Terminal velocity is about 125 miles per hour . Any thing dropped from the air cannot free fall any faster than terminal velocity" I agree terminal velocity for any chosen object is just that "terminal velocity" but it is hugely variable. David.
