As I said in the E-mail mate. If I had the space I'd snap Martins hand off for it. Couple of days fettling that would be a great car!

Valvers rock! 8)

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...

Heater works but is a bit weak & doesnt blow any cold air.

Front suspension seems softer than it should be. The spheres when me & Ian did a bounce test seemed to be uneven front to back & the accumulator sphere may be low as well. All the spheres are still under Westroen warranty so car (or spheres) need going back to them to evaluate to either re-charge or to replace them.

Front bumper trim has the paint peeling off it, so either re-painting or new trim adding?

Thats it, doesnt sound like much eh????

All electrics, engine, gearbox are sound as a pound. Oh its mot'd until Sept next year & is currently on SORN.

Any good?

Are you going to publish a thread on the scope of the loan, along with the rules and regulations of borrowing it? :? :D

Wasn't expecting you to write "War & Peace", just basically what the scope of the offer is and your expectations of the lender while he/she/they have it. :?
PM is cool though and of course can sort it out ad hoc. :D 8)

Ok way2go, here are some cursory conditions.

1 - agree length of loan
2 - agree how many miles (borrower may have to have car serviced)
3 - agree what current condition is (dents/scrapes etc & general internal condition)
4 - agree what o/s jobs will be taken on during period of loan
5 - agree about what happens if car breaks down etc... (it hasnt yet)
6 - er anything else ive forgotten about?
7 - all speeding fines to be paid by borrower

Like i said, would really need to sit down with said person & just go over everything, they may well have some of their own conditions & hopefully both parties agree & shake hands. There might even be the potential for the borrower to purchase the car.

R u interested????

Mulley, don`t forget the all important word: insurance. I`d not be in a rush to loan it out without seeing the appropriate cover for it-though I don`t of course mean any offence to any of our gang.
