  1. Finally after months of sitting under a cover I've started attacking the BMW to get it back on the road. Lights are rebuilt with new seals, fitted and working. Chrome trim re-installed across thee back. Bumper hopefully off to the chromer's. Exhaust refitted. Just need a good boot lid form Tim so I can refit the restored spoiler and when the bumper comes back I can fit the new rubbers and clips

    battery charger/trickle charger what to buy

    Secondary trailer couplings.

    I just use a break away line on my RR. The line is longer that yours and threads through the loop on the tow bar. I see you have a similar loop on yours below the socket. That is where I'd loop my strap through which would stop damage.

    Thoughts on the Moon...

    Yeah I defo seen this before.
  5. Yes I have chipex kit for it. Contacted a company for a quote. Hopefully find out today.
  6. Very true mate. If you look carefully you can see your side skirts in the picture
  7. dunno yet mate. It’s not on a crease so I’m hoping it can be sorted without a new piece. However I will give you a shout if it does. Thabks mate
  8. I just put the car cover back on it I was so pissed off mate. I'll take some tonight.
  9. Well as said I moved the e12 at the weekend and sods law it was near an engine crane in the garden which then proceeded to fall over on it about 20min later. 2 massive dents in the freshly painted rear quarter from the wheels. Gutted doesn't even begin to describe... Only saving grace is that you can reach both from the inside so hopefully a dent remover can make it look ok but it has cracked the paint above one of the dents so it'll never be right until it gets done again. I've been really hard up the last 12 months so the car isn't even back together from the last time it was at the body shop having new rear quarters , boot floor, lower scuttle and rear valance welded in. Not having the best of luck atm

    Tats goldie chains and a BMW

    Problem is no-one buys their cars anymore. They are all on tick which means any old oik can now own a brand new fast car. There are 3 apprentices at my work all in brand new Audi A3 and A5 S-lines which at some point they'll all have to give back
  11. Think I'm somewhere in the middle of this
