Yes, that's what happens when you post at 8 in the morning.

What I meant is that I helped clutch decide by posting many pics in the hideout thread.

Clutch, congratulations on your purchase.

I went to Victoria's Basement today to check out their sale and came back with:


Benzer - Bamboo Lazy Susan 40cm reduced from $80 to $24


D-Line - Ravioli Maker reduced from $32 to $23.95


Jamie Oliver Pasta Machine reduced from $80 to $30


Benzer - Backen Bakeware Biscuit Machine with attachments reduced from $50 to $10

I was going to get a Jamie Oliver chopping board as well but, after carrying it around the shop for about 20 minutes, I decided it was a bit too heavy.....

Is Victoria's Basement where she keeps her Secrets?

My most recent purchases were some bike parts. A new skinny tire that I rotated in after cutting my sidewall and a new brake cable as part of the rear drivetrain overhaul so my friend can stop complaining that my bike doesn't stop as well as his.

I suppose a basement would be a good place to keep secrets, but I have to disappoint you and say no, it isn't. The only garments of any sort you're likely to find there are kitchen aprons.

Victoria's Basement started in the late 1980s as a small shop (it was only 13 square metres in size!) in the Queen Victoria Building, a huge 19th century Romanesque style sandstone building that takes up a whole block in Sydney's CBD. Originally it was called Mr Tablecloth, as it sold mostly tablecloths and other napery. The brothers that ran the shop later decided to significantly expand their business into a retail store selling homewares and giftware, and established it in the storage area in the basement of Queen Victoria Building, hence the name Victoria's Basement. About ten years ago, they opened up three other stores in the suburbs, one of which, in Auburn, was the one I went to yesterday. The Auburn store also sells indoor & outdoor furniture.

Also if I'm not mistaken, the Auburn store is up on the first floor.. perhaps an inverse basement.

If you look at it from the Parramatta Road, it looks like it is, but the main part of the store is slightly below street level (maybe the block slopes downwards to the back?). The windows you can see are in a small, upper, mezzanine level, which has pictures, wall hangings and I don't know what else, because I was just wanting to check out kitchen wares. To get to the shop from the Parramatta Road footpath you have to go down a flight of stairs. Access to the car park is from Silverwater Road, but it's small and when there's a sale on it can be a nightmare parking there, so I parked at Domayne and walked down...

Ahh.. shame, I was always amused by the inverse basement idea.

I've never seen them on a 2002, only on E12 518/520s... there's a pair collecting dust in my shop. Will a swap to 40PHH Solex/Weber/Mikuni carbs be in your plans?
not sure, iirc the ad aid it was a setup off a different model 2002.
i find the word that springs to my head is 'cigarettes' whenever i see the car in soft light like at sunset, no idea why.
and yes, this is all ferrer's fault


i had it corner weighted, 1077kg all up, with 56% of that to the front. not fast but fast enough for backroads fun, have to give the brake pedal a bit of effort though. it does pull steadily like a steam train though, seems to have torque- it literally just doesn't notice hills.
the revs and speedo do not change when you hit an incline. it's like the car is on level ground the whole time. overtakes everything uphill!

Bus ticket to Paris and a booking in a hostel. Should be good fun to be in that city again. A room for 5 days plus the bus trip is only costing €165. Traveling on a budget this time!

Every time I see those things, I wonder if they purposefully come up with ways to cram potentially deadly instruments into one. The Swiss Army knife of rock climbing and homicide.

Bought the wifi backpack and remote for my gopro:

Yes, definitely practice and dont turn a self-arrest into a self-impale.
