Not back on the lhm tank vanny! The Other tank! 🤪 🤪
There is always an element of cleaning off the buildup in the pipes weakening them for the inevitable pop, sure was the Xantia that popped one on the mot test one year!

Re: Who's on the road (or could be), who is Not?

Have to say, whe. I hydra flushed the Xantia with this stuff, the difference was remarkable! From As soon as I refilled and bled it through with hydraucinacage, it rose smoother, rode smoother, broke better etc. Even ran better when I poured the old lhm into the tank..... 😬

Re: LHS electric wing mirror

Michael, pretty sure I have a mirror still on. A door left over from my old car, will have a check that the mirror case is still good, if so will remove the arm for the mirror to save weight! 🤪

Re: Red Mk1 16v

Probably similar reason to why I laid mine up, simply not using it enough, sadly mine succumbed to rot quite badly in the end, would have cost a lot to get back ready for the road, and to be honest, I lost interest! 17 years of ownership!

Also worth checking the earth's around the battery area, battery to to gear box, gearbox to chassis (inbetween bulkhead and battery), battery to chassis, if you have the battery out check the plug connectors underneath the battery tray area, quick clean with a small wire brush and a smear of vasalen...

Re: My 16v

Gary, no recent pictures but it's outside the lounge window so no huge effort to get some, ;-)
I've a price in mind for it which I don't think is too unachievable, all depends on the level of project you are looking for... Ping me a pm if you like, can chat that way,
Gary, drop a pm my way buddy,

Re: Who's on the road (or could be), who is Not?

Unsurprisingly, mine is in no closer condition than last post! Under its cover on the drive,
Really in 2 minds as what to do with it due to the rot, and its locations,
