I Got a Bingo
#1
Hello to all from sunny Cool  Somerset. I've just bought myself an elderly 98k miles Bingo car. My wife has already announced that she won't be seen dead in it (but she won't know! Angel ) so I'll be using it for going to rallies, transporting a trials bike, plus the inevitable runs to the tip and carrying awkward loads.

So far, the car seems quite good for it's age and mileage:
it's got lots of new stuff like battery, clutch, front brakes and exhaust
remote locking doesn't work but the central locking is fine on the key
the radio doesn't work but I can always sing to myself
there's a motley collection of rattles, but ho-hum, it's French. The tailgate trim is loose which I think is down to a few broken clips. I think someone left something metallic inside the left rear when the latch was repaired. The trim panel over the left rear wheelarch is loose on its clips. All easily fixed, I think.

My plan is to remove the small rear seat and then the motorbike should fit in diagonally, facing backwards. I'm hoping to secure it with the tie-downs in the load space. The two welded-on ones are obviously man enough for the job. The others look a bit flimsy but I suspect the screw into the floor is a lot stronger than the wire bit on top, so perhaps I can find or make something stronger to go onto the original fixings.

No doubt I'll be back here soon to pick your brains on some little thing or other.

Is this the piece on the side, or do you mean peace  ? Big Grin

Ours was my wife's idea as she drove one for work and liked it.
So where does this bit go then ?
