    For hoses, you could try Bonding & Reline Services at Leicester. They made me all the automatic gearbox oil cooler pipes for my old BMW 635, a combination of metal and flexible pipes, came in around £110 the lot.

    Thanks Cressa and SteveM. Cressa did you run the hoses the same way across the front or reroute them around the block?

    I've only replaced the one from the drier to the condensor for now. I've kept it exactly the same as before and will do if I replace the others

    It certainly is, frustrating though not having the necessary equipment to tackle certain jobs I know I could do myself.

    Still, I have enjoyed it so for, except for the endless jacking the car up to get it all done

    Got the exhaust sealed today. Turns out the last person to work on it put the short through pipe on back to front. That would explain why there was no slot cut in what I thought was the outer sleeve.

    Wonder what else I will find fitted on back to front.....

    Fitted a new heated rear window switch as the old one wasn’t illuminating. Then sanded and painted the slightly crusty bonnet support arm. Cleaned out the area around fuel-flap/drain. Then fitted 3 new Bosch wioers and replaced both headlamp dipped bulbs with halfords superduper jobies..not sure any brighter!..will try an updated loom and teflectors next.

    After having fitted my new sump and a good idea magnetic sump plug, it LEAKED. So finally replaced it with an original normal plug and problem solved. Not often we find an easy fix

    I always placed a magnet onto the oil filter so any small bit on metal sticks to the magnet.Dont know if it works but makes me feel better

    Took all my aircon hoses off the car!!! Bloody crazy thing to do but I was bored and fancied the challenge. Going to get replacements made so I can have a little more reliability.. maybe
