I think I might be in Germany but I would love to see him sometime. That green combined with the Colour special has the same effect on me as the lemon drizzle cake at Costa.

Y10 brethren are not allowed twin sunnies I was thinking twin sunnies would look silly on a Y10 but maybe not.

I think it would look awesome could a roof be cut and welded on without crazy amounts of bodging out of interest?

I think the only real hurdle would be whether the Y10s roof is physically big enough to accept twin sunnies off a Panda. The Y10s pillars curve in more than a Panda giving a smaller surface area I reckon. On the plus side I think the roof is a flat enough.

Re: Roofus

Well, got a handle on at least one issue for the rough running. The Cat is now making a noise like the exhaust is dragging along the ground, so the substrate is obviously completely breaking apart inside. Got to get me to and from work tomorrow then I can pull the exhaust apart on Sunday and get it sorted.
Then...rocket ship obviously

Re: Roofus

Are you de-catting then? I would be interested in the results if you are!

Re: Roofus

Well, I don't know about actually de catting long term but I'll be knocking the middle out this weekend as a short term fix until I get a new cat to fit so I should get an idea. No cat isn't terribly MOT friendly though.

Re: Roofus

Well, had the exhaust apart last weekend and the rear joint between centre and rear sections is really hard up, so ordered both sections up from Euro car parts. Arrived today but sadly they seem to have sent me a centre for a Panda, and a centre box for an Escort...oops. Guess that's another weekend it's still not sorted then!

Re: Roofus

Email back from Euro asking for a photo to confirm the part is wrong. Do you think this will do?

Nope, apparently not. Sent them a photo of the label on my initial email and they emailed back to ask for a photo of the complete part, sent them the above and they have just emailed back to say that's no good because they can't see the label.. really not impressed now!

Re: Roofus

Well, their courier is coming tomorrow to pick up this here Escort bit. Panda backbox is still in stock on their system but nobody in their customer service seems terribly bothered about getting me a replacement so I've ordered one from somewhere else, as I will be doing for anything else I'm needing from now on.
