PS There is a prize of one bag of Tesco doughnuts for the person who correctly identifies what was used to effect a temporary repair to the offside light.

PPS And yes, Clemo and I drove past a truck on the M4 carrying a giant haystack.

PPPS another picture tomorrow when the camera battery is charged.

Well I can correctly identify how the leak was fixed.
For a further 10 points can anyone correctly identify which muppet locked his keys in his boot!

Great LEC weekender again all.

See you all at the next one

Oh no you can't, the picture is in front of my house and it hasn't been fixed yet. It's not the exploding pipe that nearly gave Alan a heart attack at Mildenhall services 6 hours earlier! :shock:

Only in front of my house when I got home Alan. Hope you made it back safely and thanks for waiting.

Looks like bottom rad hose - set of Samcos should do it.

Yeah, but after all the 'experts' had got the keys back for the Muppet (using tools from wherever they could be borrowed)...

... who was left with the job of putting it all back together again (and getting the panel gaps to the Muppets' satisfaction :roll: ).

This is probably a stupid question, but why did you take the boot off Clemo's car?

To make it easier to put the lock back together apparently. Or just because he could :roll:

Ahhh! When I took my lock off in the garage to have a look at it, I just rested the U plate in the right position and carefully inserted the screws while lying across the boot.

If I'd been the one to take it apart, it would have been far easier.... but by the time I looked at the job, there were a handfull of parts which no-one could work out the right way to put together. The metal plate between the bootlid and U clip was detached and wouldn't stay in place to line it all up without an anti-gravity device, so removal was the easiest option.

I must be catching some of Geoff's luck. Look where I found the missing tooth from my 5th gear.

It was in the oil lubrication gutter in the 5th gear compartment. So I don't have to take the gearbox apart to find it!
