Re: 4th time lucky*

There is (or perhaps now was) a roundnose Brotherwood up-front wheelchair converted one on ebay last week as an MOT failure (welding to cills required). One owner with stupidly low mileage - around 20k I think. It wasn't listed under the main cars & motorcycles section so it didn't come up on a normal search for some reason. It was a nice colour too.

In some ways it's a shame the the Brotherwood conversion made such a fundamental change to the interior layout. There have been a few low mileage ones come up for sale recently, but they're appealing to a really niche market.

Re: 4th time lucky*

Thought my daughter would follow me down the 'Ugly Bug' route, since she really loved the ones I had. Wifey decided to give her the Nissan Note as a 1st car and there's no getting away from it in young peoples eyes the Note is the preferred tool.

Re: 4th time lucky*

Well,
After not a lot of enquiries... Two people asked the same question... When was the timing belt and water pump done.

No idea!

So I took the top cover off and the belt had more cracks showing than my ill fitting jeans.

The water pump looked original too and later date code confirmed it was a 2003 part.

So I bit the bullet and spent the 70 on a gates kit and fitted it on my birthday. Took about 3 to 4 hours.

BRING IT ON.

The kit was great apart from it came with a crank bolt which you didn't need and no new tensioner nut. Speaking of which it pinged off and I spent 1/2 hour looking for it. 10 imaginary points to whomever can see it in the photo below... What a cheeky little so and so.
