    What about swapping the mini for a cheep run around that you can just run into the ground without it worrying you? I used to do 80 miles a day, and after having an incident which killed my EG, I went through a series of cars for a couple of hundred quid. Cavelier, 309, carina. then got tubs.

    So long as DD is staying Why is Mindy just for fair weather? Is there anything that could be done to make her more winter proof?

    Yup. I really miss driving the ol'girl. I like Karen's accord, but it's just not the same.

    Yep, if I can wind the clock back on her a bit I'm comfortable with that. I always regret that my EG ended up having scrapped, and don't want to end up having the same regret with tubs. And you're right about new cars... I've had loads of hire cars through work this year, and haven't really enjoyed any of them. No soul.

    Finally got a date for the welding... 23rd October... Looks like a couple of weeks work Then it's back to fuel fixing, service, brake caliper refurbish, disks n pads, and back on the road, then to the body shop. Taking so long to get my baby sorted, and probably going to end up costing around what I paid for her 13 years ago

    Check out this how to... Especially the part about giving the hoses a squeeze. Check that both the top hose and bottom hose are both getting warm, if not there might be an air lock so giving them a squeeze can help To be honest, I've just done this from point 7 onwards and it's sorted it. 7 years ago... Jeez...

    Can't remember if I saw this here in the first place, but just came across it in my favourites on my phone and thought I'd share it coz it's pretty cool https://www.motor1.com/news/268425/honda-civic-history-slideshow/

    Yep, and be without the old girl for longer Will make things more tricky then I am... I keep questioning whether it's worth it, but to be honest I can't be bothered with starting the journey on another car, as tubs was pretty much set up how I like it, and there's been too many folk on here over the years who've moved on from an M and regretted it afterwards. I've already got the parts I need to sort her out, just need to get the work done. It's turning into more of a restoration now though than a repair.

    Also, a bolt sheared when he was trying to drop the sub frame to fit the fuel line. Does anyone know if the nuts for the bolts are captive?
