    Hi everyone. You'll notice some new forums appearing over the next few days....in fact there are some already as @andybond@andybond has set off like a scalded cat on the work. We are currently working on a merger with a couple of other forums, hosted by @r5gordini@r5gordini (Andrew). Andrew has owned these sites for a couple of decades, but due to many life commitments and the ever dwindling numbers on the scene has accepted our offer to merge into TurboRenault.co.uk. Power in numbers, better together and all that.
    Andrew will be joining us as a forum moderator, and will be helping us decide on the best layout once the new forums are imported. All users from the source forums will be retained and will be able to log in here, retaining post counts etc. We ask your patience while we "move house" and get everything rejigged into order.

    The sites coming on board are:
    www.r5gordini.co.uk
    http://r5turbo.info/
    We will be, as we did with 21toc, redirecting the links to point here so nobody is left with a broken page and no idea whats happening.
    I hope @r5gordini@r5gordini doesnt mine me transcripting the message he sent advising of the move, which I found rather nice:



    I hope you will all join me in welcoming everyone and everything from these sites to TurboRenault.co.uk and thanking @r5gordini@r5gordini for such a massive boost to our userbase and resources. Onward and upward!

    -The TurboRenault team :)

    After posting in Clarkey's rebuild thread about the delights of the two post lift, I had an epiphany. Lots of members use this forum for advice on how to repair, replace, restore or modify and to do these tasks we need a selection of tools.

    How about an Automotive Workshop Tools and Machinery section? People could rate stuff they've used or bought and could even provide advice on special to type tools and how to make your own? Torsion Bar puller springs to mind?

    Thoughts?

    I'll leave it for someone else to comment as I probably won't benefit from it as much as those UK based. A lot of the affordable brands are different in Aus. You can still get high end like Snap-on.

    DIY special tools is something I could definitely benefit from. So from my point of view it's still worth it.

    Not a bad idea, especially wit the Renault "MOT" tools. I found the Clio aux belt MOT-whatever tool on the bay for a tenner the other month :D

    I also made a 21 door pin tool from a chunk of steering rack arm lol
