#389376 Caffine & Machine - Opening Sunday 27Th Oct 2018

Posted by Thrashed on Yesterday, 03:10 PM

Seen this place opening on Facebook ( https://www.facebook.com/events/188752982016954/) 

 

No idea if it is any good, but might be a good place for meet ups or just a destination to drive too?

 

I will probably pop down on Saturday, so will report back.

 

This is what they say about themselves:

 

A Coffee house, licensed bar and restaurant, boutique b&b, and living art gallery, C&M is designed very simply as a place to go, a destination in and of itself if you appreciate moving things. With fabulous food, mind-blowing coffee and high-end rooms, C&M offers everything you expect from a modern member’s club - except you don’t have to be a member to enjoy it.

Come and enjoy our opening... see you there!

Sounds good to me, Rich, do you have anywhere in mind?

Great run out.  Bit damp to start with but cleared up and had a lovely sunset drive home from Chatsworth House.

No worries. Was good little meet. Mad variety of cars from minis to pre war stuff and a few boy racers too.

Pub was open and so was the cafe. Let you know when the next one is on

No worries. If you are doing the duratec conversion you will need the gearbox of a mk3 mx5.

#387356 Zero Ball Joints

Posted by Thrashed on 30 July 2018 - 12:51 PM

Hi All

 

Just a bit of useful information.

 

Had to change the front lower ball joints on my Ford Based GBS Zero.

 

Turns out they are an Astra Mk3 ball joint.  I directly replaced them with a Delphi Lockheed part TC397.

 

Hope this helps someone in the future.

 

Regards

 

Steve
