  1. I tried googling for local mobile aircon regases, to no avail to match your description of a old dude who does it manually. So went onto Groupon and get a regas+clean for £40 at ats PLEASE DONT BE LEAKING :S, just hope its been neglected like the rest of the car apparently.
  2. Air-con has decided not to to play anymore. Please just be a regas fix. f**king worst time of year too.
  3. Is trials even still counted as a sport? i haven't bothered venturing off chit-chat for the longest time...
  4. <3 Job and done. Smoothly did it. No dramas. Im just shite with relationships. so will forever vent on here until trials dies enough that the page goes.
  5. Not in the slightest, i spoke to her after a load of shit kicked off the other night, and honestly think i saw the real her, i was close to walking out, but my 23 hour awake mind couldn't work out what to do, so i said ill think about it, and then slept in my car for a few hours before going home. I have to be careful with upsetting her as the job is on the line, she has the power to stop the agency i work through booking me. f**k just remembered she is out with me tomorrow at work.
  6. True.... just got to face up to it i guess. f**k.
  7. I've had a plan, normally i would just use the 'ive been busy with work' shit a shot to distance myself, thus letting it end smoothly. In this situation, i cant, i see her most days. So the plan, f**k clipper, im self employed but greedy, im going to work elsewhere for a month, a local vehicle movement firm on average is 15 hour days. There is my excuse, without loosing too much money. I really hope that this works... I could alternatively just shoot myself in the head next, my feet have already been blown off with my unsuccessful relationship life.
  8. Meets 'really nice girl' to of what i thought/think After first date she posts a pic up of me onto IG with caption #thisguy #poop Really nice girl is jealous as f**k about my having a best friend who is female Really nice girl ends it - and tells me that she cant wait for our next date Really nice girl says that she feels like a mug because i didnt say that my best mate was female from the off(i have Muslim, trans and Jewish friends, probably should mention that too) Really nice girl is showing bipolar tendencies Really nice girl is fine one moment and then is about to end it the next leaving my on the highest of highs and then feeling like shit. Fed up of really nice girl - its has been TWO f**kING WEEKS Think really nice girl is mentally broken, how do i always end up with these girls.
  9. Thats a bodge even i wouldn't try!
  10. LS430 those axle stands basically, many many moons old with a shit load of play. The jack is a 2tonne limit apparently.
  11. I used a shitty halfords jack that is several years old, with the wheel under the sill. I come back to the car 2 hours later, and it was sat on the wheel with the jack basically fully down. When regreasing the pads i just adjusted the height sensor for the air suspension to max, and then was underneath it, I like to live life on the edge. #YOLOorwhateverwasthesayingbackinday I have axle stands, but the cars weight succeeds their limit. I guess that means the jack too... Id love a proper way to do it, but when needs must thats what i got to do. Bring The Hate...
  12. Turns out a brake pad decided to disappear along with the pin. The piston wasnt as good as slowing the car as the pad for some reason. Fitted it all back today, tightened everything, put away the tools, and the it hit me like a train, i didnt put copper slip on one of the pads. FML. Also some mong has jacked it up and what i can only presume the jack has slipped at some point. which has pushed up the floor, so going to have to get that fixed at some point, it makes jacking it up on the sill points(which are bent in also n that side, precarious. For a layer of added excitement my jack also slowly goes down but it takes it being maxed out to lift the thing high enough to take the wheel off.
  13. They'll be fine with 4 until its fixed. My car decided to be a pest. Guess I'll be doing the brakes on Monday. And hope for shit it hasn't moved the pads enough it's been hitting the piston. I felt the pin give way on the way home from work today. Funfunfun or something.
  14. im not scrolling through the comments, but imo Synthwave Vaporwave lo-fi carwave Its love. Its life
  15. Lexus LS430 update. Ended up getting this for £1400, 160k 3uz vvti. Its not bad, but i think it has been in an impact at somepoint of its life, down the O/S, the wings cracked and the rear quarter has been painted, but looks like a rough smart repair, so its getting that sorted within the next few weeks. All three smart Keys have lost their link to the car, but its £66 to get them all relinked at Lexus, Joys of keyless entry, so its booked in for that, and a service next week(car has full lexus history, kind of dont want to loose it for once). The front two speakers have torn, but its a common problem for these. Headlights were foggy, but both have cleaned up well and thats really it, This car blows my mind, 2002 and it has that many features, im basically finding new stuff each day, today was finding out the rear massaging seats have multiple 'refreshing' settings, last night was voice commands which is very hit or miss, but is there nonetheless. that quarter's paint is.... shite.
