Re: Nightmare, advice sought

Thanks for the replies. Fortunately, we're not in such a bad position as a good number of people I'm aware of, but that doesn't make it much better.

Re: Nightmare, advice sought

Hi, The image doesn't show for me, so I can't comment on that. But as Dougie said, paperwork and how complete it is would be the key. Was it complete? Is it missing stuff now? Very tricky. Maybe contact the landlord, and see what the storage costs would be. Might be reasonable and give you more tim...

Re: Nightmare, advice sought

Gutted for you, but it looks like you are not alone, can the liquidators not put you in direct contact with the other owners and the landlord and arrange between you a reasonable price for storage while you sort yourselves out? If I was anywhere near Blackpool I’d sort it out for you but I’m not, an...

Re: What happens to an over heated engine

I'd start your compression checks on no.3, if you don't have any there then it's engine out and take a look, probably the piston is something like this.......

Re: 1960 Single Cab

Spoke to the DVLA, tax disc on its own isn’t evidence it was on that vehicle, need an mot or something like that. Gutted. :cry: What difference is a tax disc or MOT ?

Re: 1960 Single Cab

Amazing what you find down the front panel!

It's been a while but we're making progress, Dave's been at the load bed and bulk head so we can see what needs doing underneath.
