Re: Bromborough Ju88 incident RWeth 22nd May 2024 10:52am
I am the son of one the crew members of that Ju88A - Unteroffizier Helmut WETH - who served as a radio operator and air gunner on that mission. I am still very interested in this somehow important part of our family history and would like to contact anyone who shared this interest. If so: please contact me directly. I am also in contact with the son of Helmut Brueckmann, the PIC of that plane - and we both think about visiting the place of the crash… How sorry that it took me such a long time to (re-)discover this website!

Re: Grange Rd Circus joney 16th May 2024 9:02am
I dont think the theatre was totally demolished. After a bombing raid in which the co-op was damaged a lot of stuff was thrown out of the back and amongst it was were rolls of theatre tickets and programmes as though there had been a storeroom untouched. I took some home, long since gone alas.

Re: Roofer recommendation please? haarlemmer 9th May 2024 5:29pm
Anybody looking here for recommendations, steer clear of Omega Roofing and UPVC. Three months after 'completing' the work (a new roof) and being paid they still haven't been to finish the final tasks which they said they needed to do after the scaffolding was down. Repeated calls and messages are ignored by Stephen.

Should have known - they are not registered with any of the trade bodies. Avoid.

I have pictures which show their unprofessional work.

Re: 233 Caledonia Inn 68 Market Street diggingdeeper 5th May 2024 5:13pm
The Caledonia now called The Monkey Nuts has been closed down during a review of the licence for a number of reasons including a knife and a firearm. There are also allegations of drug taking and drug dealing.

Nothing changes down skid row!

Appears it was also called Eleanor Rigby's Bar at some time. This pub might have the record for the number of names changes.

I think there is a vintage vehicle storage/club along Wallasey Dock Road between Duke Street and Penny Bridge?

Since companies have popped up acting as agents for people's drives and garages prices have gone really silly (eg asking £30 a day for a driveway).

Further afield ....

Hooton Airport Trust might still store vintage vehicles.

Some 20ft container storage places allow you to store cars in the containers, a bit expensive on Wirral, cheaper in North Wales, cheapest I know is by Greenfield.

Self-Storage places ask silly money for outdoor let alone indoor but some removal firms are more reasonable and have indoor storage.

Sometimes its worth wandering around and see if you can find an industrial unit under-utilised and ask, a lot of small firms are happy for any extra income.

If you could find a group of reliable people you could rent a place together but generally some members don't pay up and it all falls to pieces.

tl;dr its not cheap these days

Re: Looking for an old engine diggingdeeper 3rd May 2024 1:36pm
Should be fairly cheap from any scrapyard, they don't bother trying to sell them on unless they are near/known perfect.

There's more recent cars with similar sort of basic (no-ecm, no-injection) engines which should be easier to obtain. Peugeot/PSA TU1/k engines spring to mind, though it is OHC rather than OHV and the bolts are all metric not imperial. Those engines are probably a bit lighter than an A-series so easier to work on.

First engine I stripped down was a BL-B-series, followed by a GM-BLY.

Best advice I can give you is to get a decent socket set, stripping the heads on stiff bolts is the last thing you need. I tend to have a set of 6-point impact sockets as they are much less likely to spin on bolt heads and they are surprisingly cheap. A cheapo 12-point socket set is fine for co-operative nuts and bolts but if you are doing it outside a lot of toolsets are not chromed these days (lidl) and will rust if they get damp/wet. And of course you need a torque wrench for rebuilding, no need to spend silly money on those although the electronic ones are a lot quicker and easier to use, all mine are mechanical and work fine.

Good ratchet spanners are a godsend but not cheap, perhaps not as useful for engine-out work. Cordless impact drivers save an awful amount of time and patience.

Cheap air tools are pretty useless.

Most cars have been metric for a long time, if you start on a imperial A-series you will need another toolset for metric - noting its not totally uncommon to find imperial bolts around exhaust and brakes on a car that is otherwise metric.

Its a bad hobby to get into, you end up collecting more and more tools especially with modern cars, my collection is bad enough and the newest car I've worked was a 2000 model.

Hey! While it's been a while since this post, I thought I'd chime in just in case others are still on the lookout for a spot like this. If you ever find yourself in searching for restaurants in the sydney cbd, Dixson & Sons is a gem. Though not in Bromborough, it exudes the same cozy atmosphere with its outdoor seating. I remember stumbling upon it during my trip and being impressed by their Sunday hours. Even if it's a bit late to help the original poster, maybe someone else will find this recommendation handy.

leather sofa set Jasontodd 29th Apr 2024 3:47pm
Are you looking to elevate the elegance of your living space? Look no further than a stylish leather sofa set. From timeless classics to modern marvels, a leather sofa set can effortlessly add sophistication and comfort to any room. Let's delve into the myriad benefits and options available to you when considering this iconic furniture piece.

Experience Unmatched Elegance

Step into luxury with a leather sofa set that exudes class and sophistication. Crafted from premium leather, these sets offer unparalleled elegance that instantly elevates the ambiance of your living room. Whether you prefer a sleek contemporary design or a traditional tufted look, there's a leather sofa set to suit every taste and style preference.

Durability That Endures

Investing in a leather sofa set isn't just about aesthetics; it's also a practical choice. Leather is known for its exceptional durability, making it ideal for furniture that withstands daily use. Unlike fabric sofas that may show signs of wear and tear over time, leather ages gracefully, developing a rich patina that adds character to your furniture.

Comfort Redefined

Sink into sumptuous comfort with a plush leather sofa set. The supple texture of leather provides a luxurious seating experience, offering both support and softness. Whether you're lounging with a book or entertaining guests, a leather sofa set ensures that you'll always relax in style.

Versatility in Design

One of the standout features of a leather sofa set is its versatility in design. From classic black and brown hues to bold colors like red or navy, leather sofas come in a spectrum of shades to complement any decor scheme. Additionally, you can choose from various configurations, including sectionals, recliners, and loveseats, allowing you to customize your seating arrangement to fit your space perfectly.

Easy Maintenance

Forget about tedious cleaning routines; a leather sofa set is incredibly low maintenance. Unlike fabric sofas that trap dust and stains, leather can be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth, making spills and messes a breeze to deal with. With minimal upkeep, your leather sofa set will continue to look pristine for years to come.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, a leather sofa set is more than just furniture; it's a statement of style and luxury. With its timeless appeal, durability, and comfort, a leather sofa set is a worthy investment for any home. Transform your living room into a sophisticated sanctuary with the addition of a luxurious leather sofa set, and indulge in the ultimate blend of elegance and comfort.

Help Needed for Virginia Creeper Removal Rinchen 28th Apr 2024 1:08pm
Hello - we'd be grateful for any names of people in Wirral who could remove some Virginia Creeper from the side of my late father's house in Bebington. No expertise/technical skill is necessary!

It's a simple, quick, easy, non-specialist task that should take < 1 hour (I removed a large area in about 15 minutes but I promised my family I wouldn't tackle it as it involves ladders). My father did it regularly at 80. The branches break off easily and the plant falls off in a single piece under its own weight.

I can help and do all the clearing up. There are both wooden and metal extensible ladders available at the property.

Thank you for your consideration of this enquiry.
