flipping bangers..

Got something to say, but it's not classic related? Here's the place to discuss. Also includes the once ever-so-popular word association thread... (although we've had to start from scratch with it - sorry!)

You have to flip them otherwise they burn.

What's this flipping bangers all about? Was it on a UK terrestrial channel? I've never heard of it.

It's on Freeview channel 63. :thumbs: The entire first series is available as a download in watchable quality if you can't wait for episodes to come to the telly, it's a shade under 5GB.

Counting Cars, on the same side, is well worth a look too.

It's listed under the "Series" tab on the site. I just watched in time as episodes 1 and 2 are now unavailable for download so only 3 through 10 are still up. I var nigh bubbled at the one with the Alfa; all that hard graft and it ended up bailed! :cry: The Metro was a great end to the first series, but what was that bloke thinking about, letting them have it at so little money? :?

I have all ten on my Dropbox if anyone wants to catch up with any or all episodes, the download is about 4.7GB and it's all at a very satisfactory 800p resolution.

Agree on the Alfa point and why refurb the wheels and leave them on when crushed? If I were in their shoes I would have dropped the motor and left it in a corner dragged whats left to the yard and have the wheels off before the crush.

That Metro did make me think thats waayyyyyy too cheap, mini owners would have paid way more just for the engine alone and the sale was a bit odd too. Left me thinking mmmmmm. Still better than having a Mike / Tim type in the show even if the two of them aren`t Fuzz or Edd

i thought the same about the alfa, i suppose they were trying to make a point? as for the metro, i have found an early mk 1 with 88000 km that needs restoring.... metro had one once, i don't think i will buy another
:x
edit, it has 99000 km.. how easy is it to fit a new sphere?? :scared:

New bottles (displacers, to give them Sunday's name..) for Metros can be obtained relatively easily if they're to fit the later cars with the K series engines and connected suspension (front to rear on each side, just like Hydrasag should be), but the A series engined cars had unconnected front displacers and the rear pair were connected side to side across the subframe, those are the ones that are harder to find as I'm informed that MGF ones can't be adapted in that case.
