Post by tim leech »

Mr Mulley and myself will be trekking up to see Mr Newbold tomorrow to collect some parts and then I will be travelling back down to Burton, if anyone has bought any parts from Ken and needs them bringing down a bit further south etc let me know.

Many thanks to Ken for his kind donation of various BX bits and bobs , the "tatty" TRS isnt looking so tatty now with a new rear bumper (thanks artic steel) front bumper inserts and a set of TG wheeltrims from a bleeding cold shed in Wakefield yesterday :D .

Im still amazed how well the 20 year old 150000 mile TRS drives and performed another 200 mile trip yesterday averaging a easy 40mpg.

Its filthy now though! :shock: I must say I cant envisage me getting rid of it come 2008 to take on that red TRS, its nice to have a BX that is mechanically sound, which doesnt need any work!

The OSR bearing was done less than 6 months ago (think it was that one, there should be an invoice for it with the paperwork, Tim).

Thanks matey, no bill for that bit though, starter motor/alternator & spheres etc are, shes in good hands, new plugs and leads go on this weekend, I have done a lube service and "aquired" a professional weatherproof car cover for the cold winter nights sat on the drive.

Did you ever have the cambelt done?

No. Guess it must be due to be done.

Is it just me that finds that really funny?

If so it confirms what I thought.. I'm a sick puppy.
