  1. Thank you that was an interesting read.
  2. Nothing wrong with the old ones, some of them look like they have had a hard life and some look very good, just like to see a new one if they are still made.
  3. Can you still buy a new good quality .410 3 shot bolt action, looking on gun trader they all seem to be old ones.
  4. Yes that’s right, the 996 was frowned upon by some people for those lights, I think if you can find a nice low mileage Porsche they will be a good investment as well as a nice drive.
  5. The 911 is an s2, it’s an 07 with just 36 thousand on the clock, to be honest I don’t use it as much as I should, it sounds great when you are accelerating the thing and I have nearly been caught out with it once or twice by getting a bit carried away by the sound.
  6. Gt6 is a Green mk3, the car was used a couple of times in the tv series life on Mars. The 911 is a manual Carrera
  7. 911, GT6, wolf defender and my favourite a fully restored series 11A
  8. I used to fly a T Rex 600, I got to the stage where I could toke off and fly left to right and land it in one piece, to be honest I crashed the thing so many times just getting to that stage I never pushed my self any more with it.
  9. Thanks lads for all the tips.
  10. I am fitting a truck cab to my series Land Rover, I have taken all the glass out and starting to prep the cab for spaying. I have done some paint spaying in the past some not to bad some had the dreaded run marks. The colour is gloss bronze green and the Land Rover has been re sprayed quite nicely in cellulose before I brought it. Apart from get some one else to do it do you have any tips for me on how to make a reasonable job of it. Thanks
  11. I understand your pain, I lost my sister my dad and my best friend my dog all in a short space of time. You feel that everything you love the most is going and you just have to watch it happen. The mind is a funny thing really because it does adjust once the grief starts to pass and you will get back up again, you never forget but you do find the strength to carry on. I wish you well. chris
  12. That place is just down the road from me, I never go there any more as well it’s all ways grid locked with people shopping in there.
  13. Yes I agree but actually building something in that is going to shut your engine down, I think that is going way to far.
  14. About 4 weeks ago I brought a Mercedes ml 250, all was well until an orange engine light came on, a few miles later the adblue sign comes on saying to top up. I pull into a garage and buy a can and top up, I drive off and it’s still asking for adblue so I stop again and this time fill the tank right up, still the warning lights are on then a message comes up on the dash saying adblue or the engine will not re start after 400 miles. I take the car to a Mercedes specialist not main dealer, he runs a diagnostic test and tells me the car needs an up date in the system, can he do it, no, he tells me Mercedes want 20 grand for the licence to do this fault that they know about any way but are not doing a re call on it only doing it when you have the car serviced by them. Has any one got an ml Mercedes and have you run into this problem. I have found another independent Mercedes garage that have the licence and hopefully get sorted.
  15. I looked at there side by sides and they did shoulder nice and the build quality looked good as well, any one got one. Thanks
