You'll always be our Sue! Much better than the cold harsh reality of your face.


Your heater tap was mahooosively silted up (got most of it out now). I can only assume based on the contents that at some point someone has tried to use the engine to make concrete! Good job they got there ratios wrong, but it really really needs a power flush, and not on a day where it is snowing again please.

seems as good a place as any to say a heartfelt thank you for all the help and advice I have been given regarding the meteor and her issues,

thats what makes forums like this one and the project so great.

The kids asked yesterday if I am missing the golf and the honest answer was yes, but i'm not missing other golf owners, think that would get a very different answer if they asked that about the BX.

Most of the bits I have had from you guys have been fitted now.

Thanks to RXBX I have a nice shiney N/S green tint rear light on its way to me to match the o/s one hadent even noticed until last weekend they didnt match.

Hehe, it's a common complaint I assure you :lol:

I tried to resist this one, sorry, but it was just too easy! I like your signature Mick, I am of the same opinion of myself, except that i don't just look intelligent, but there should be dashing and handsome or other synonyms of attractive etc in there too :roll:
