Re: future

We will be driving old Tesla’s where the dead battery pack has been junked and a diesel bongo engine transplanted 😀. I know the fossil fuel era is coming to an end but the battery powered cars are using finite minerals dug out of the earth so it seems like we’ve not really done anything different an...

Re: Avoid or not?

But then you will probably never buy a bongo, there will be rot in almost all of them, to be fair you’re looking probably at a 19 year old vehicle which even if it had all the right services is still no guarantee of motoring bliss. at the end of the day if you pick it up for £4K usable for a year ge...

Re: new member

Easy tiger you’re leaping straight in to the deep end if it’s cheap parts wise to try another pump to be sure of problem why not try it I have a pump that was perfectly ok for the cost of postage and a beer I would happily mail it to you.

Re: Avoid or not?

I wouldn’t have thought it would be badly corroded or it would have failed mot but I guess you would need to get underneath it to have a good look so it might just need a couple of small sections cutting out shouldn’t be too much

Re: which Sprinter wheel arch

Re: which Sprinter wheel arch
