i secretly operate in centimetres when I'm alone..
However all trades men speak in millimetres so i used google convert to help me speak the lingo to you guys:)
In a bid to sound cool :lol:
I got it wrong though ok ok anything below 1 on the CM line IS ALREADY millimetres :lol: got it
I was assuming they were centimetres and converting them to millimetres :lol:
Good job I'm building it myself and not over the phone.

its spot on when I'm looking at it :lol:

When purchasing the sheet we went to first DIY store i said:
" Hi,
I'm looking for a sheet of MDF,
Need it as close in size to:
42 Inch long
15 Cm thick
406.4 MM wide
If you have it? "

 

 

PMSL, inches, mm,s and cm,s in same sentence :blink:

Lenny, you know Ive had a bad back for years now, well mate at work has trouble too and his flared up, he didnt take no for an answer and insisted on a scan not a ex-ray of his back, from that scan they sent him to specialist so a Mr not a doctor and he says its the best thing he has done. within two weeks had surgery on his back as his S1 and S2 was being compressed by his spine, 3 weeks later he was back at work. dont get me wrong he is taking it easy to build strength and confidence in it but he says for the first time in years he is pain free, has slight niggles but 99% better than he was. he is trying to get me to get stuck into my doctors for a referral, point here is doctors offered him tablets that didnt work just took the edge off, once past the doctors stage even if you pay private for the scan you are then at the Mr stage and they know there stuff a lot better than a GP, not dissing a GP but in these cases you need to go higher.

One thing you need with kids is a big boot, even to carry all there crap about, thing about 7 seaters is you loose the boot completely, so yes could put kids in but thats all.

Price wise modding is a mugs game as in when you sell you never get it back and end up price wise a little over a nice standard version as people will pay top money as its clean and nice on the eye, like a top top version v a base spec moddle, which would you choose. my last modded car i sold was my leon cupra, spent a fortune on it and it went like stink and looked stunning, money wise got what a really nice standard version would get, before that the polo, one of a kind the only 6 speed gti powered 6n2 out there, when I sold it i offered it in three guises.

the complete car as it was. the car without the wheels and the car without its wheels or leather interior. the buyer bought the car only but i did put a standard gti interior in for him but he had to bring wheels with him and put his on before he drove away, sold my wheels within a week and the interior well some lad drove from london to sunderland, arrived here raining and dark, I stripped the drivers seat out as he had already removed the rest and fitted the leather interior and put his seat in the back, he then left for the return journey.

selling modified cars is not straight forward mate and the only winner is the buyer.

NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This X2, but if you are hell bent on selling someone off here should be taking your arm off for it, tastefully done and many hours work and all documented Mods for how too,s.

Dont think the vehicle you have in mind is any bigger inside than focus to warrant selling though.
