    It's called Greyhound Lodge because it was the lodge house for the old Acton Hall Estate. Our house is fronted by huge stone pillars with greyhounds on top, hence the name. You must've seen the pics I've posted?

    Question for the Mechanic types in the room

    Whats your opinion of K-Seal?
    https://www.kseal.com/uk/products/k-seal

    think I may have a radiator leak, thinking this may be a good temp fix?
    My mechanic says stuff works great, anyone here used it before?

    thanks.

    yes if used right and hole isnt too big, it should seal it. start with cold engine and put some in. them let engine idle and add some now and agin for a while at idle speed. it should stop by an hr tops, and stay sealed unless the crack gets bigger of course. not much you can do with a big crack

    car returned after its first mot. also got a battery into one of the fobs. girl phoned me and asked politely and friendly how i'd like to pay... i retorted i wouldn't like to pay its a motability car. there was a palpable change in attitude from her; not as friendly etc.. pretty poor show from her imo.
