I like the Compomotives. Shame to waste them on a Berlingo though... :)

Any idea what engine you're gonna shove in? Mi16, 3.0 V6 or something non-PSA?

You don't know just how jealous I am to see your workshop - nice and bright and airy too (though those tiles don't look like they offer much grip).

Congrats on passing the test - glad to see someone's being properly trained! Good pics as well.

cheers bud

the tiles arent to bad when you have ya rigger boots on!

tainers on the other hand its like ice if there is some oil or water on the floor, but its clean 90% of the time so no worrys

well.......... the van lost all of its coolant 2days ago, on a very bussy road! felt like a right knob!

it was the little water housing on the rear of the block, its was cracked and had a hole the size of a 5p init!

so changed that this morning (was a propper (-expletive removed-))
and notice there was a oil leak so fixed that

and blacked out the rear windows, so the nebby (-expletive removed-) cant peak in!

also noticed the windscrean is cracked ::)

not putting the bucket in anymore, going with the escort gti half leather!

going to stipe some of the interior out 2moro to clean n stuff, might have a go at fitting the seats
