The Focus is still going strong K :lol:

However two MOTs looming on other cars, tyres, exhaust and cat, and tax (not the LR as its tax exempt) Plus a new bathroom.

When's Christmas this year?

:shock:

Been on the acquisition trail the last couple of days. So far there should be an avid BB5 caliper, XT V-brake, Rockshox Dukes and a (wifies) WTB saddle winging their way to me. Enjoying my first build from scratch in a while, even if it's not for me :)

I feel your pain. Hinge went on space saver toilet in en suite. £80 for a replacement seat as bog standard ones don't fit round pan. Found a hinge kit but even that's £30, and its getting bad reviews for rusting. Got waxoyl left from prepping the Pugsley so going to coat it before fitting.

Got a new bathroom a couple of years ago and I love it! Got a wet room floor and a big walk in shower with one of those mahoosive shower heads. Bliss! Money well spent. I remember getting the downstairs bog done an all. It was like something out of a low rent horror film, then we got the spa bath doodah and some modern bits and bobs, transformed into a nice wee sanctuary. Mare like an extension of the bairns play room noo though but it was good while it lasted.
