    Default Totally unproductive day trawling the scrapyards :(

    Well as some of you know, one of my favourite pass times it trawling round scrapyards grabbing bargains so today i took off in search of some. The first place i went to have now changed their policy and you're no longer allowed to mooch round at your leisure, hunting high and low. I was accompanied at all times by what i can only describe as the work experience boy. It was almost as if he was making sure i wasn't nicking stuff. I had a quick look round, couldn't see anything of any value so left. On the way out though i did see a Peugeot with some XP2 alloys on it though. Looked odd.
    Then i blasted up the road to my favourite scrappy in Bradford where i was welcomed back with open arms, pointed in the direction of the vectras and left to my own devices. I found what i though was a set of auto folding mirrors, enquired about the price, £60 for the job lot inc. a few other bits. I couldn't get to the cash machine fast enough. An hour later all the relevant parts were stripped but i noticed the lightness of the wing mirrors. Could it be that they were not actually folding? Indeed they weren't. Damn, the DDM was wan digit out on the P/N. Disappointed to say the least.

    Not all was lost though, i did manage to pick up a wedding present for Peelmeister! Pictures to follow....
