  1. Nigel, there's a solution to this and for which I spent many years searching ... there's a piece from a few of us on here about the issue and for me, my indy remedied the area just under the trim by the centre console arm by the cupholders I think it involved turning the volume/sensor down ..... been fine since If you wanted to travel down to Thanet, near Manston old airport, then my indy will no doubt book you in to sort it for you. Let me know if you wanted his number Malc
  2. I think that if you approach a classic car restorer business you might find " old school " bodywork and spraying skills alive and kicking and at a sensible price too. Its a shame you're in Lancashire, my son-in-law is such a skills clever guy and works for such a business ................. but in Kent ! Malc
  3. BMW 750 trading to GS450h SE

    Ugh ! it's always a trade UP from a BMtroubleWu to a Lexus ......... sorry joking ( not really ) I'm a solid 15 years Ls400 man through and through and have had many other cars at the same time ( I owned a carsales business AND had a few BMWs too ) I doubt you will regret your trading-up to a Lexus Best wishes whatever Malc
  4. oh crap !

    brilliant result, well done .............. probably little more depreciation to come then Full Lexus service history and only 111k miles WOW, that's a result in my book Fortune often favours the brave .... but sometimes not Looks a great car Please keep us in the loop if you get any issues playing up Malc
  5. Thank you so much guys. We are just sticking to the cambelt and peripherals at this time Best wishes Malc
  6. Hi guys, a little query to resolve please. Is removing the starter motor ( to overhaul ) an integral part of the process of stripping down and dealing with the cambelt etc ? Thanks Malc
  7. oh crap !

    and the price you paid maybe ? Thanks Malc
  8. ............. as I mentioned above, £30/40 might sort it out from your LOCAL welding guy ! Malc
  9. Gentlemen good afternoon, well, if there's no more input from you guys of wisdom I'll convey this Forum link to my indy mechanic to prepare stuff Thanks once again Malc
  10. oh crap !

    sounds like a good buy then ( fingers xd ) ..... can you tell us a little more about your Ls600 ? piccys, price, service history or whatever maybe Malc
  11. puncture repair kit replacement

    ....... and maybe zero phone signal Malc
  12. oh crap !

    good luck and best wishes do please keep us in the loop on the outcome Malc
  13. Had this car over 6 years now and the cambelt is due to be changed, as a run of the mill service item .............. the starter motor is absolutely fine and was replaced under the Lexus Recall for the Mk3 but probably 20+ years ago now on 201500 miles, cambelt due to change at 204500 miles Whilst all the gubbins is being taken apart by my indy mechanic and this mammoth job done, I thought it prudent to replace the starter motor brushes now too ..... to make sure it lasts another 100k miles till the next major event Any more useful info on sourcing the cambelt, peripherals and waterpump would be gratefully welcome and also Steve2006, could you please put me in the right direction of the Starter Motor repair kit please, numbers etc if possible. Thank you so much guys Malc
  14. Gentlemen good afternoon, I've been trying quite unsuccessfully, to find the threads on here which would give me the benefit of your wisdom from time to time on the best sources of these bits and bobs. I know you have all been kind enough to give your experiences but they have been amongst other threads. My indy mechanic has asked me to seek the advice of The Forum on where he might best source the best of the necessaries for the upcoming event, in about 3k miles time, about 3 months. Your thoughts and words of wisdom would be most gratefully welcome please guys. Thank you Malc
  15. but no Ls400 is " collectable " and methinks it might be another decade or so , if ever, it does become so ! " concours " is a bit irrelevant with our cars .... now, if it was an old Bentley and concours ........... and forever breaking down and on every outing thinking it might need a transporter recovery ................ then that sure is " collectable " Let's not get ahead of ourselves guys Malc
