Planning is an unnatural process, much better to just get on with things, that way failure comes as a complete surprise instead of being preceeded by a period of worry and doubt

Got sat nav so just need the pub/cafe address. I wonder how many people know that the very first nano-meet job involved powerfolds and a hammer and chisel?

yes but we just had to refine the process after that, no sign of any chiselbut the hammer is always kept in reserve as the best tool in the bag !

Might need a hammer and chisel for VeeKay at the nano-meet.

The driver's window has taken to creaking towards the top rear of the glass while the car is in motion. Can be stopped for a second or two by operating the switch to close the window but comes back again almost immediately.

Any ideas please?

Yes, someone found it in their tyre the next day.

No seriously, there was a great bringing out of Rover rechargeable cubby box torches, and someone (don't remember who now) found it for me. Rust coloured screw, on brown moss coloured tarmac, in the dark. They obviously had eyes like a s**thouse rat!

I will be there. Hopefully for breakfast!
Please can I be added to the list for the handbrake mod (or at least a look to see if it is needed and a diy plenum mesh - the neighbours leaves seem to have an un-erring accuracy for the plenums :-(
Also, someone to have a look at my ipk to see why I have no abs light?
Fitted the new abs sensor today and HOORAY - speedo works!
Still no abs light though......... hoped it may fix it.
Haven't been for a long run but it appears o ring mod has fixed the whistling - fingers crossed it will have sorted the constant black smudge all over back end.

Am I correct in thinking that Steve, you are the kind gent who carried out the plenum mod for me at the September meet?

Will be nice to have a proper chat to people this time as I have the day to myself :-)

It may already have been mentioned, but if the ABS (Antilock Braking System) light isn't working on IPK (Instrument pack (IPK from the German)) it is a automatic MOT failure.
Hope you get it sorted quickly.

None of the last 18 MOT's my vehicles have been through have ever had an MOT operative in the drivers chair. Is it just me or do any other owners remain in the drivers chair during MOT? I appreciate it will depend entirely on the discretion of the garage, but simply saying I don't want anybody else in my car first time out has been accepted, from then on they have not even asked me to step out of the car.
