Re: jacking beam

I reckon you've got the basis of a small business there. I'd buy one if the price was right.

When I replaced mine I ran a die down the studs (4 or 6ba I think) so the trims can be held on with nuts/washers.
What a good idea. I'll remember that.

Re: mild road rage

If we have to go on the motorway with the Morris we usually slot ourselves in between two lorries and run at a nice steady 56 mph. The lorry drivers usually realise what we are doing. We once went from the Midlands all the way to Yorkshire in the company of the same lorry with flashes and waves all ...

Re: mild road rage

The Jaguar F-Pace SUV is a cracker. All the benefits of an off-roader (other than the degree of articulation in the suspension and possibly the ground clearance which you get with the hard core off-roaders) with the comfort and ride of a proper car.

Re: Damp

I use a pair of these in our Mazda MX-5 (the Morris is tucked up in a heated garage with a mains dehumidifier) - one in the boot and one in the cabin. You can regenerate them in the oven when they are 'full'. https://www.halfords.com/motoring/car-accessories/interior-car-accessories/air-dry-classic-...

Re: DVLA Records - Previous Keeper History

DVLA do not operate within the law in relation to selling private data to car park companies. I think you will find DVLA do act within the law, but if you have evidence to the contrary then you need to report them to the Information Commissioner who will investigate and fine them heavily if you are...

My background is information security and data protection. Having seen lives ruined by breaches of privacy I think people are right to be obsessed by it.

Re: DVLA Records - Previous Keeper History

The change has been in place for a couple of years and had to be made to ensure DVLA was compliant with the latest data protection legislation. It is shame in many ways that you cannot contact previous owners any more but at least we known they are keeping our personal data safe.

One casualty of this will be the heritage bus service which the Transport Museum in Wythall runs between Birmingham City Centre and the Museum on Bank Holidays etc. The Museum has approached Birmingham City Council but they ap...

Have you tried talking to the Tracker technical team? I have always found them very helpful in the past and they may be able to recommend a SIM card(s) that they know will work.

Re: Euphemisms

We took the car (not the Morris) to France for the first time a couple of years ago and, as you say, even the motorways were nice to drive on. A bit of a shock when you arrive back in the UK though.

I agree with Banned User. We rarely take the Traveller on the motorway unless we have too and only then with a support car acting as rearguard protection.

Re: Euphemisms

I suspect I am going to get some feedback but if you think of the cost of the alternatives (new motorways or widening existing motorways) I think Smart motorways are quite a clever solution.

Re: Membership benifits - Esso Fuel Card

It does get a mention in the mag and a separate flier with membership benefits, you know the stuff you chuck straight in the recycling :D I saw the name Fuelpecker in the list in the magazine and on the flyer but I had no idea of the sort of savings that could be had. By 'a mention in the magazine'...
