    Refixing bits

    My car was originally a cat C, apparently the offside front wing was badly damaged, along with the driver door.

    I guess things aren't "quite" right underneath because the panelling inside the wheel arch isn't fitted normally. the top panel has a screw going into a rawplug. The bottom panel to which the underengine cover is attached, has a few missing screws and nowhere to attach them. It wasn't too bad until one of the screws on the back of the under engine cover seized and I had to cut that one out, it means the cover is now inadequately supported and bounces slightly, on bumps. Doesn't make much of a noise, just a slight clinking, but I'm concerned it's just going to get worse as things work loose.

    SO I'm contemplating, either drilling and using a rawplug to hold the bottom panel, or using something like "No More Nails" to hold that wheel-arch panel in place.

    Any thoughts anyone?

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
