Absolutely not related to any form of bus purchase but the steering knuckle on an Accord looks remarkably like the one on an 800. So it's a how to for a bottom ball joint.

Re: My New Vitti......

Immobiliser ? you have the inertia switch inside the centre console but it leaves the PGFMI light illuminated constantly. The alarm would sound if its the later Mk1 immobiliser. That is correct. I was intending to use that as an extra security feature but the sounder was a dead giveaway. Plus, it o...

Re: Police TV documentary that featured a blue 827 as an unmarked car?

I have that on DVD. It was a pc called Snook and he drove a blue 827 fastback around Swinton, Greater Manchester. I can't remember the name of the show but I'll try and find the disc with it on. I knew recording lots of tv was a good idea !

Re: Front fogs

I bought two sets when they were £15. One set I fitted to Stella (including the switch panel). The wiring was already behind the bumper and the panel was simple plug'n'play. I removed the lamps from the car before she was taken by the DVLA for no tax but the switch panel I left. If I'd had more time...

Re: Front fogs

That's for one ? Is it just the lamps you need and not the switch assembly too ?

Re: Forum upgrade and new look

I quite like monochrome but it could do with a splash of Nightfire red.
Give it a couple of weeks before tweaking it as I think it will grow on a lot of people.

Re: Rare Philips CD head unit and amp

800 estate ? (but not the stupid Volvo 240 one). I've always thought the rear end of one of these would work well, similar c-pillar angle and rounded edges. I haven't got round to measuring one yet although there is an avant up the road from me. It would be a Mk2 800 though as the Mk1 is too angular...

Have to pass my level first. :lol: :wink:

Big jump after that to Brad levels.
I don't think there are enough 800s left to reach Brad levels (or possibly yours Chris, come to think of it).
