    Wow, where you taken this picture from?

    Last days I was so thinking about 'Get Carter' movie that I would need to watch it again. I read a lot stuff about that movie, and I find it very fascinating.

    Past the MOT today :mml:

    Three jobs done first though, headlight alignment and hand brake :laugh: but worst was n/s bottom ball joint! Two options replace the whole arm £90 and drop the subframe :yikes: so I opted for a £15 bolt on joint and hours with a drill and a grinder and a cheisel and a hammer :laugh: finally...

    why would you need to drop the subframe pat, i know its unnecessary to replace arm but it can be taken out without dropping subframe off i think.

    BRMFUN Fun in a BRuM Moderator Member

    To get the bolt out the subframe has to be lowered, not much but enough to be a pain in the arse :laugh:

    i see, i remember having the arms out of my tf to put new rubber bushing in but it could have been at the same time i took the front subframe down, easier jobs than lying outside dropping subframes off lol.

    Not an update I want to give but here goes. I am finally home after being in a serious accident in the TF, serious concussion and various cuts and bruises, is all I had some others were not so lucky. The car saved me apparently, I have no idea as I was not conscious, however I know it is dead :( , which is upsetting but all things being said I am still here and can always get another one.
    However my outlook on life has changed somewhat !!!

    I'm a bit lost for an appropriate response, a mixture of WTF with your luck in that car, and relief that it helped save your life! Perhaps it's repaying you for the TLC you've shown it.

    As you rightfully say, after all is said and done, you're still here to tell the tale and with comparatively minimal physical injuries.

    Concussion isn't pleasant, and no doubt you're going to be feeling the effects for some time to come, but it will all come right in the end!

    Luck is something you find in a little corner, or a little car

    Good thing you have survived, there are plenty more cars, as soon as you're feeling you need one more

    Next time take the broom and fly

    Hmm, a predominantly positive outcome for all I hope? Cars are intended to be sacrificial, so I'm pleased it helped you. Stats are saying we have a drift in the wrong direction currently...
