  1. Having seen people spending money on failed glues from car accesory shops I went to the local windscreen fitting place and asked one of the fitters if he could glue it on. He obliged and wanted no payment. I gave him a fiver and the mirror was still on the car when I sold it. I don't really know of anyone who has had lasting success with store bought adhesives.
  2. Happy New Year, May fortune favour your footsteps.
  3. Ooops, my bad. I blame my advancing years.
  4. I use Waze, free from the App store on Android. It has the advantage hat it is updated constantly by its users and I have recieved warnings down to "large pothole in inside lane" in addition to the usual road closures and slow traffic.
  5. Still alive and look into the forum during my morning news browse each morning. Had the opportunity to get a 2.0 litre recently but reluctantly decided against it as it needs to be a reliable daily and getting parts and problem solving didn't make it a viable option plus she who thinks she is obeyed thinks I should be sensible and make use of my bus pass.
  6. Insides of a Yale lock, knew I'd seen it before
  7. Looks like the internals of a Yale type lock.
  8. get one of those little water balloons that the kids chuck about and fill it with light grease. Put the end of the cable into the balloon and secure it tightly with a couple of cable ties and gently squeeze it while moving the cable back and forth.
  9. Happy new year everyone. May all your dreams come true.
  10. Conspicuous by their absence, three cheers for Aldi's thick bleach. Unfortunately the only Corrado things I have now are the sacred oil stain on the drive and a drivers side door lock screw. Look in here most days just to follow what's happening.
  11. Still look on the forum most days and still have the urge to buy another Corrado. Wish I'd never got rid of it.
  12. Merry Christmas to everyone. Have a grand and glorious day filled with turkey or suchlike followed by several glasses of your favourite tipple. Do all the usual stuff and try some new stuff. Most importantly, enjoy yourselves with friends and family. MERRY CHRISTMAS ONE AND ALL
  13. I ran my 1.8 16v as a daily for 17 years doing about 250,000 miles in it. It is my view that a car should be used, laying them up for most of the year doesn't do them any good. I did have my own personal quirks with it, one of which was when I replaced the timing belt I would also drop the sump and replace the big end shells and main bearings at the same time, other consumables would also be replaced on a regular basis. The main reason for passing on the car was the difficulty of finding parts. In the time I had it, it only let me down twice, both of which were repairable by myself at the roadside. I still miss it terribly.
  14. Been Corrado-less for a few years now but I look in here every day as part of my morning coffee routine. (Staying away from the classifieds though, too much temptation.) This is a great forum with wonderful members whose assistance to me was invaluable, particularly on a couple of occasions when I was ready to break the car. Even on non Corrado problems including the infamous ant infestation. Long may it continue.
