At least the safety chain/s were up to the task!

When you're in the middle of nowhere with a flat tyre and no spare a little bit of ingenuity can still help you get the van home . . .


. . . Having said that you have to admit the Sigma was a good car in its day, with a top air conditioner, and strong roof pillars too.


Cheap water tank available there as well.

Pretty amazing but we all must admit we have done something similar (not wheel covers) and stood back and said "You bloody moron!" My specialty is disassembling something, searching for hours, finally cutting it open or chopping a bracket or rivet off convinced it is a factory solid assembly to find a little button or knock-out roll pin that flips the catch open or releases the shaft under a layer of paint or grease.

A hole cutter would make a much neater job but as a last resort, you could move the dress cover one stud to the right.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!
