Apparently this engine stand is supposed to hold 450kg. Hopefully a 1zz won’t trouble it too much after swapping the fasteners for something at least plausibly rated at 8.8.
Somewhere there was an unsold stash of E72s. My dad doesn’t like touch screens, and his previous Asha 210 was starting to have charging issues, so this seemed like the ideal replacement. It’s also a reminder how some aspects of phone design haven’t been an improvement.
How to celebrate an MOT pass. Fortunately the shopping trip included suitable beverages.
A more common sight.
Just pulled in for a full up at my local garage. It’s a traditional place where you can buy Red Diesel and Heating Oil from the pumps.
I’ve not really mentioned it on here, but for the past 10 years since leaving college(almost exactly to the day!) I’ve been self employed. I can’t say it was a particularly successful endeavour, the last few years have really been a grind, and being totally honest a miserable experience. I finished up the lease on the…
The project to make the MR2 more pleasant continues. This time, replacing the torn seats, cleaning out 17 years of Human Slime, Replacing all the locks and ECU so I can get a spare key and replacing the speakers for some that actually sound better than what I assumed was worn out originals.

Is that a miniature railway serving as someones fence?
Or what happens when someone forgets to put the burner rings back in place on an oil fired cooker. Easily fixed with this guy:
So this plopped into my inbox this morning. I’ve seen this subject line many times, and it never means a positive change for users.
Went for the Falken ZE914s in the end, mostly due the type of driving I do, and the road conditions around here.
Sliding rear dors? Pfft. Sliding driver’s doors are where it’s at! Plus this is actually a Mini van, being only three inches longer than an NA MX5.
Infiniti is dead in Europe.
Metro with what appears to be a Twin Turbo LS. Looks like a complete body swap. Bet that shifts well, though I’m not sure of the practicality.
A big blow to Swindon. Workers at BMW are probably worrying too.
BMI Regional, which in some ways is the last piece of the British Midland group, with it’s origins dating back to 1938 appears to be the latest U.K. airline to run into problems. Flights canceled and aircraft returning empty to Norwich, a common location for storage.
Nothing official yet though. Updated just after I…
