Ever fancied getting somone into trouble? Some arse cut you up? Want to get revenge on somone? Alter their car number plate (or license plate if you are from the other side of the pond!). What you need is 3 rolls of self adhesive insulation tape, one white, one black and one yellow. Plus a […]

Novel way to get drivers to notice speed limits

A novel way to get drivers to notice the speed limits is here – Warning: Contains Partial nudity!

What a difference…

… a new set of spark plugs and more importantly, new plug leads make to my car. The old plug leads looked well past their use by date so they were replaced. I should have done this sooner as the car is now much smoother to drive, no more miss-fire and juddering around 30-40mph under […]

The flag (comprising of a red cross on a white background) will be attached to the top of at least one door of their vehicle. […]

Big Brother MOTs

Vectra clutch problems

So I’ve now replaced the clutch master cylinder on the vectra and what a job that was. I had to remove the air filter and box, brake master cylinder and servo, engine tie bar and bracket, wiper arms, trim below windscreen and a bracket on the alternator. The clutch master cylinder is hidden behind the […]
