    So what are you doing in isolation?

  3. As a variation on a theme what little projects have we got on the go to while away the hours whilst staying in? As i work from home anyway currently my day isn't much different but I have decided to try and get round to the things I've been meaning to do in the evenings/ weekends - aside from the life laundry and sorting stuff out. First up is my "barn find" Tamiya F150 from when i were a lad. Pulled it out of the cupboard and got it running with a new battery, slowly been cleaning and fitting the replacement parts I've collected over the last few years to fix the broken bits and its coming together nicely. Its now fully ball raced and with a "sport" tuned motor on the way Bit of cleaning and assembly tonight and it should be done but for the motor, wheels and tyres which are on order! So whats everyone else been up to?
  4. Reckon if you have an 80's BMW from Milcars you need this! Original BMW tool tray cloth! Used and stained but intact. Make me an offer!

    So what are you doing in isolation?

    Last couple of days I’ve revived this. Given to me by a mate without tyres or seat. Got a seat off a neighbour binning a bike a while back and then last week another bike was heading to the skip so I had the wheels (with consent). So fitted the seat, new tyres and tubes. Adjusted the brakes and sorted a no indexing gear shift a spring has gone but works. A good clean and I have a tidy pub bike

    Hi from italy :)

    Welcome along. Looks tidy and well kept. Is there not some tax law in Italy about cars over 2 litres which is why you got the 320is and Ferrari 208? Does this still apply. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Vintage Scalextric

    Assortment here of mine. Spares or repairs but good for a stash of parts or a lock down project! Talk to me https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/duncan-uk/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from=

    Vintage Scalextric

    Nothing like that just stuff from when i was a kid really - adding bits as and when. The scalex was a job lot i bought as i was building an airfix 1/32 herald and TR4 with the kid and i thought we might be able to motorise them - seems a 1/32 herald is a very different proportion to even a scalex metro! Never going to do anything with them so off they go.

    old skool ford fans - tool kit tools for sale

    Thanks, £11 for some old spanners doing nothing is better than nowt and frees up some space I've realised a lot of "stuff" gets accumulated over the years and gathers dust - time to shift it on!
  18. Having a thin out of the tools - how many spanners the same size do you need so these can go! http://ebay.us/usJyKQ?cmpnId=5338273189

    E28 Steering Bracket Reinforcement Kit

    Think we have solved this - the dowel replaces the bracket rather than augments it as its primary purpose is as repair. I don;t recall the gap on mine but fitted it to an unbroken mount and it worked fine.

    E28 525e - Opal Green 89K Miles

    Down i reckon depending how long the current covid situation lasts - we are going to be paying for this for a looooonnng time! The eta (525e) is auto only - suits it. I wouldn't spend £9k on one.

    Do you let your better half drive your BMW? :)

    Of course - she knows I'll be annoyed if it gets damaged and it irks me when she and the kids turn it into a bin but it is the family car. Its what it is here for. She's driven all of our BMW's including M's

    E28 Steering Bracket Reinforcement Kit

    ^ Rob you may have inadvertently answered the length question earlier. I always assumed that the bracket remained when using the dowel. If you do that would account for the extra length mentioned earlier. Where as without it would sit at the same height as the original bracket!

    E28 525e - Opal Green 89K Miles

    Feels a bit strong to me but if it's as clean and tidy as it looks some one may well buy it at something close. That said who knows what's going to happen to values in the coming months. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

    Yeh, struggling on - bit of cabin fever but work though slow is ok so keeping busy enough. Just fancy a "day out" as it were but doing our bit!
