    FAO those who have broken cars

    On the off chance I have to break my car in case it doesn't sell...I have a quick question! Once I've stripped everything off it and leave the chassis on the floor on axle stands, how the hell do I get it to the scrappie to get weighed in?

    Anyone experienced any problems with arch liners not fitted at all? Presumably there's more of a chance of grime build up and maybe stones/debris hitting stuff?

    Fog lights - MOT?

    Just making sure, removal of front fog lights will still pass an MOT won't they? If they're not fitted, can't be tested right - even if they are manufacturer standard?

    Why do so many people sell up?

    Something that I've notice a lot since I've been on this forum. Why do so many people spend so much money on building pretty epic/mint cars track focused, and some that are just plain minters, and then either break them or sell up?

    Door leak

    I keep getting a door leak on the passenger side - bearing in mind I have no door card fitted either - water gets in inside over the window mech and the door seal that goes around the bottom edge inside the door. It puddles and then overflows onto the floor. It only happens when car is...

    Removing headlining glue from the roof?

    Set about removing the glue stuck to the roof today - the stuff that holds the headlining up. Started my usual routine that I've done on all the other patches on the car on that, and also scraping too to remove the glue. But..the roof seems to be getting little marks from where I'e heated...

    Removing headlight washer jets

    Anyone got any tips on how to do this? Presumably bumper off job, then what? Is there like a retaining nut and then it pulls out through the front when the washer hose is disconnected? What shall I do with the hoses once they're off as I'm fitting blanks there?

    TRS tow strap bolt and fitting?

    I'm aware it's M16 size bolt I need for these, any one know the size the bolt has to be? Also on a ph2, I'm guessing the bumper needs to be removed to fit this, and does the tow hole in the grille need widening at all?

    Which impact wrench?

    I'd love to be able to buy a Snap On impact wrench but I don't think the spondules are going to stretch that far this month! So as I'm on a budget, what's the best what I can buy? - needs to be able to remove stubborn wheel nuts and suspension/subframe bolts, so fairly powerful.

    Re-locating electric window switches

    I've bought some CF door cards, but they have no space for the electric window switches. Are the switches removable all in one piece with the wires, from the small panel they sit it in the normal door panel? I've thought about trying to mount them by the gearstick...any ideas how too?

    When changing the gear box oil, will a flexi funnel do to refill with new oil, or will I need a piece of hose aswell? Am i right in saying the wing nut just screws out?

    Correct resistor ohm ratings?

    What are the correct resistor ohm ratings needed for the airbag light? I need it for the two seats, and the steering wheel. IIRC it's two per seat and for the wheel. Want to get rid of the light now, I think the resistors I originally used were either faulty/wrong rating.
