Firstly can I thank you all for your participation in the competition. There has been a lot of good entries from all over the world.
It is now time to announce the winner of the UK entries and this hasn’t been easy. Without a doubt, the main choice from the majority has been the belt change from Vadim. He has requested a video which is possible to do at home and can be completed without much in the way of specialist tools. However, this is a massive job and with video and travel time included, it would be hard for me to get to him and do the job in one day. It is also a job that can carry some risks if the correct tools aren’t to hand such as broken bolts or the ability to correctly access and support the engine. Finally, the way we may choose to do things on our own car may be best carried out in a different way on someone else’s car. I would prefer to use additional tools for safety that Vadim does not have.
The entry from Lee had far less votes but better meets the criteria in every way. It can easily be done from home, it does not require specialist tools and can be filmed in a day.
So I have decided that the winner for the UK is……………….
Both of them. Yes, both of them.
The competition was for me to travel to you and carry out the job for free. This will be fulfilled entirely for Lee but because Vadim’s request received the highest votes but does not completely fit the criteria, I will still do the job for free but at my location where all the correct tools will be available.
The videos will be completed as soon as time permits and will be uploaded for all to see.
Thank you to everyone that entered and for those of you in the rest of the world, the competition is still open until travel restrictions have been lifted.
