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

Post pictures and stories about your cars both present and past. Also post up "blogs" on your restoration projects - the more pictures the better! Note: blog-type threads often get few replies, but are often read by many members, and provide interest and motivation to other enthusiasts so don't be disappointed if you don't get many replies.

OK, so chances are it's too new for you & probably for the world in general, but it's small enough to hide from Mrs Rich - maybe in a spare kitchen cupboard in your luxurious French château home - and let's face it, if she found out that you'd spent that much on a vehicle you don't strictly need, at least you could live in the thing.
You're forgetting something John, Rich has a hotline to "The Stork" his brood would squeeze into the Mazda, what he needs is to think big: ... 9/#gallery

Well out of that bunch of dogs, I'd have one of the Jack Russell pups! :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: :drool: They're charming beasts, but don't let them think they're in charge, they're clever wee blighters so they need to be trained thoroughly, indeed they thrive on learning. My nearest neighbour has a 4 year old one and she (the doggo, not the neighbour) is a delightful character whose footballing skill is remarkable, as is her ability to bring a smile to my face even in the worst of times.

Buy the bus too, otherwise you'll be leaving here and starting to post on a dogging forum instead. :lol:

Once home I moved onto to getting the new toilet 'flap' thing fitted. This meant removing the bowl. The flap mechanism and pedal are attached to the underside of the bowl. 8-10 screws hold it on. Nice and easy then?
Well the bowl sits on 2 studs. One at '5 O'clock' and one at '11 O'clock. '5' is easy but '11' requires working by 'feel' as its right over the back of the bowl with 'knack all' room to spare :lol:
Also had to disconnect the flush water pipe, again this is a work by feel one. :roll:
Re-fitting was a real ball-ache. Worst part was getting that flush pipe back on.......
The job was done (I thought) and so we headed off for a long weekend. During the trip that flippin' flush pipe 'blew off' causing a bit of a flood in the bathroom :twisted: .
Had to divert to a Castorama where I got a blank to go on the end of the pipe. Fitted that in the car park. So water was restored, minus the ability to flush. Bring out the bucket! :lol:
Once home I had a fettle with that pipe with everything drained down. No way could I get the blessed thing to screw onto the back of the bowl.
So I set off the Mr Bricolage nearby with the 'offending' connectors to see what I could find.
These. The brass bits threaded bit into back of loo & the grey bit to secure the water pipe......
At the DIY place I collared the plumbing dept chap. He took one look at the gubbins I had and declared it to be from a camper van! Impressed I was. He then sorted me out with a great solution to sort everything.
This being the fix & its been fine ever since :thumbs:
