Google doesn't recognise Jaguar XF.
I don't recognise modern Jaguars in general (type F is an exception).
But you couldn't mistake that one, is it a hearse?

Incidentally the Citroën is a mobile tyre testing station built for Michelin.
why, to test ten tyres at one time ??? !!!

The drain hole is only small to start with in the recess - won’t do any harm making a couple more around 3mm diameter and don’t forget to keep them clear!
Okay...will do sir
four, one for each way the car sits? and I think I opted for 3/16 inch as the small holes just get full of debris!!

Why did Reliant put the bolt heads on the end where they will foul the brake lines when you push them out?
.
other wise fouls the front of the GRP inner wing ( but this is easily sorted with a hole saw :wink: )

Water pump

That pipe is readily available from club traders I think? Provably eBay too? possibly , but when I did mine wasn't up to this 'E-bay' lark, I do have a local plumbers merchant VERY close by and the steel pipes were 'suspect' so just did the lot :-) (originality didn't / doesn't figure either :wink: )

Water pump

yep, the moulded rubber is prone to failure/difficult to find? ? ?

I used a copper 22mm to 15mm reducer and then the steel pipe is now made from domestic 15mm copper pipe, saves corrosion issues :-)

unbraked dollie (or A frame, it's the same thing in this context) is legal to recover a vehicle from harms way (it's mentioned as an exemption from the C&U regs) I was 'considering' using said dollie to take a car from Glasgow to home, does removing the rotor arm count??, discussion with Mr Plod 'h...

Trailer registration

seems to concentrate on 'A' frames rather than 'dollies', but at least clears that issue up. still not sure where an 'un-braked dollie for broken down vehicle' fits , probably best left at home ??? :wink:
