Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

I know the guy whose job it was to recover dropped reservoir lids out of Xantia engine bays for a local garage, he's an awfully shy wee soul, but he did say that I could post the photo of his lid recovering hand, as fitted by Citroen UK's company surgeon at a time when the Xantia was just coming to ...

Re: Something a little different 'bloggy' & not quite classic!

That looks fine to me, even when I view the forum on a 43" telly screen and enlarge the image! :D I'm liking how much camper content there is on the board these days, must find myself such a vehicle some day as the bed in my daily Toyota bB is somewhat lumpy and the seat belt buckles leave their mar...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

The Cresta is something else .. ex-hearse maybe? It's one of the ones converted from a saloon into that rather oddly styled estate when new by Friary, though I think that it would have been difficult to create an estate out of such a bubble shaped roof as the Cresta's so well done to Friary for fin...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

I used to have an OM10, two in fact since the first was changed under warranty after two unsuccessful attempts to fix the troublesome sensor board, by the dealer, failed. I still have some box cameras and my late Dad's Halina 35mm device, but like most of us these days, it'll be the blower that does...

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

Hmm, I'd be buying a dog resistant seat cover and one of those doggy seat belts that are available these days.. :mrgreen: And on the subject these switches, could this slightly more modern one, intended for a 2012 van, perhaps be used as a suitable alternative to the original: https://www.ebay.co.uk...

Is it wrong to be mildly excited by that most classic of all mini noises? I believe that it is not. :thumbs:

I can think of worse places in which to shelter than that comfy interior. I do like the look of the canine member of the van's crew, a most handsome looking beast you have there.
:thumbs:

Is "Sofawolf" the brand name of the harness, or is that an amusingly appropriate name for the lovely dog? :D

Re: Zel's Fleet Blog...Lada, Citroen, Mercedes, Sinclair & AC Model 70

The issues you've had with that garage are truly appalling. I'd be writing a stiff missive to DVSA by now and letting them know just what can go on in the place. :evil: The AC sounds fantastic in the clip, the CVT is clearly working well. Even though the current crop of CVTs are ever more durable th...
