Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Pavement find on South Circular on way to work this morning.

Little Tykes Coupť car.

Google or check Amazon for price.

Perfect for Sally’s one year old grandson.

Her sons are 19 and 26 and had days of fun in one too as kids.


Did I mention Free is good.




I do Like her pragmatic view on stuff like this.

A quote from a Garage Journal member.

Easier to copy and paste.

The table is a great addition to the new deck and looks right at home. I do need one of those engine cranes but it would end up being stored outside. I have filled my 5-pound sack with 10 kilos of you know what.

The toy is a great score. Our daughter-in-law was a little disgusted when Liane gifted our grandchildren with thrift-store finds 20+ years ago. Learned recently that in her new grandmother role, things have changed. She was thrilled to find a high-end car seat for a fraction of retail and couldn't wait to tell us. Liane smiled and said nothing!
Morning Bob,

Those Self Driving carts are very goood at dividing communities.

Table is great, had a friend around to collect my sledge hammer yesterday morning early as she has concrete to break (does not need me) and we had a coffee and chat at the table, it feels really good.

I actually increased the leg height by 30mm as 99% of visitors will be full sized adults, and the patio table it replaced was always a touch low.

Regarding the toy score, I think partly itís a mindset, and so many people fall foul to advertising, opinions and nonsensical false pride.

How often do kids prefer the box an item comes in, wonder why.....?

Anyway, this girl knows the value of her pounds that she works incredibly hard for, so anyone giving her or her son free £50.00 toy, is putting £50.00 back into the kitty.

I could just imagine what went on inside Lianeís head (well, as a man we never really know, do we?)


Sally has also opted to take the small two seater bench that was on the deck the last three years for her garden. I had inherited it from Mickey next door, and the new one I will be building will be bigger and more robust.

Painted it for her on Monday evening after work.




She was very pleased.

Now to find time to build a bench.

Itís WHEELS DAY on Friday so my time is allocated.

Off to Wheels Day tomorrow.

Picking up a windsurfer to go on the Blazers roof if I can find a decent set of fitted roofracks somewhere



As per what one should do, I checked over the tyres etc. last night and found the rear tyres both with some side wall cracking.
Tread depth is almost like new but I suspect they have been there 10 years or more.



So early in to spend £86.00 on two Chinese Ditchfinders for the rear.

Again, I have to say, This car has cost peanuts to run the last three years.

What a pleasure.

And these guys in Strood are both helpful and friendly and matched any prices I brought.

Win Win.

Wheels Day 2019

Used the Berlingo as the Blazer was stuck behind piles of wood down the driveway, and I was not going to move it all about.
Also neededto use the Berlingo to collect a windsurfer board to use as added decoration for the Blazer.

What a great day out.

Met up with Craig.

Saw loads of stuff. Took over 150 photos but wonít be posting them all up, takes forever

One of @CraigRK dogs watching him leave from the camp site to go to Wheels day.




Board just fitted in, 100mm so spare.



Of course there was Swapmeet and traders stands....

First stop.

Craig bought me a non functioning (the light works) Makita Impact driver for £3.00 so if a bit of fettling gets it going, bargain.

If not, the high power battery is good, so still a great buy.

Two scale faces, one to be used for the next dummy Visible gas pump build. At 50p each, a bargain.



Two license plates, free from a trader, smaller one for my collection as itís an illegal plate, and the larger one headed to Russia as soon as I manage to find a modern motorcycle plate to add to it for Vladimir to put up in his garage. He sent me a modern Russian plate for my collection.

Spirit level and square from Craigís collection to add to my tools.




Russia bound



Very smelly Meerschaum pipe was £7.00 including case, a good price.

Imp badge, given free by a trader and is for Mr Tiki to add to his badgeless Imp.



Sally got a Hoody that pleased her no end.



Prozacís main job for the day, retrieve the board for the Blazer.



Looks like it is bit (lot) too big.
