    100 meter exclusion zone

    I don't know if anyone else heard Jeremy Vine today talking about this, he mentioned very briefly that there were a lot of "young muslim women" using the abortion clinic. He also mentioned that the pro life lot were handing pink or blue rosaries to the women entering the clinic.

    Early Td5 Discos

    Had it not far off a year now, it's fast, it holds the road really well, it's very economical, dead comfortable on long journeys, loads of room in the back (like a van with the seats down), cheap and easy to service (have done discs/pads/inner and outer steering arms/2 oil services/strut inserts and a few other bits) it would make a brilliant family car I'd say.

    Early Td5 Discos

    I had a 1998 TD5 for 10 years ( the same one), did around 200,000 miles in it, and loved it. Had a few small problems with it, but if you can do stuff yourself or find a good trusted independent lad then they are no worse to own than a normal car. This "3 amigos" lights thing, is only a problem because people try and avoid replacing the hub unit, I did both my fronts with s/h Timmken ones (avoid the cheap ebay ones) they cost around £50 each + an hours labour for someone who knows the job, never had a problem again. Sunroofs leaking is an absolute twat, but you do get used to it and learn to lean out of the way on corners It never bothered me enough to drop the headlining and sort it out though. I did have to replace the BCU/fusebox thing because of corrosion due to the leak, years ago and it cost me around £60 I think and took a few minutes to do. Had a few coolant leaks at first, until I replaced all the pipes, was cheap to do, just took a bit of time, never had another problem. I facelifted mine, and got an interior off a 2004 one, it had only done 20K, mine looked mint the day I sold it 10 years later. The things that made me realise mine needed to go were the chassis at the back, I'd had it repaired a couple of times but it needed properly replacing to last a few more years, and the s/h parts problem, even the very last of the D2's are now 13 years old, so good s/h parts are getting scarce, there is a really good breakers run by Paul McGill, but you have join the queue for some parts as loads of lads seem to be chasing the same parts. There are a few really good "Geek" sites for them, loads of lads who are dead keen to help. My plan was to sell mine and buy a LM322 RR TD6, but then a car came up and I let it go. I keep looking on ebay at late D2's, I miss mine, I reckon I'll be back in a Lanny soon enough. Photos from a few days before it went, 260K miles on it ... Replaced with this (which I'll swap for a decent RR) Subaru Legacy 2.0D SE
  7. I'll bring my dog and he'll do the 2 in one

    What Boots To Get ?

    is the sole any good on you're new ones? Is it a common fault or were you unlucky do yo think I'm told, and it could of course be bollocks ... That the midsole part will degrade over time, normally slower than the outer sole wears so there is never a problem, the midsole is replaced when the outer sole is, they come as a unit, in the case of my boots they may have been old stock and the midsole degraded quicker than the outer sole ... Time will tell if that is nonsense. The new sole looks fine so far after a good few months wear, I'm heavy on boots in a different way to digging lads, I walk, quite a lot in mine on roads and that is hard on them.

    What Boots To Get ?

    Hanwag. I know a few who've got them so I got them last spring, been the most comfortable boots I've had, and I've had Lowa, Meindl etc. Had a problem with the soles on mine after 15 months wearing them, I do around 90 minutes walking a day, every day in them, the midsole crumbled, rang Bushcraft, they got them sorted with Hanwag and I had them resoled within 4 days. The uppers are definitely the best leather I've seen, some of the Meindl boots look like they are made out of plastic these days, they used to be good, but now they are made in Hungary or some other equally shit place. Just saying ...

    Uk Game Fair Is Cancelled!!

    Have you misunderstood mate? It looks like "UK Game Fair" has been cancelled and amalgamated into "Game Fair" (the new name for the CLA) so as to create 1 big event. But, I could be wrong, it has been known haha
  14. What a brilliant day! Really enjoyed ourselves, thanks to all @ Cheshire Hunt for their hospitality. Definitely a date for the diary for next year
