    Its a massive long shot but I thought I would ask! My mum has dropped her cistern lid when doing a bit of DIY on her old toilet! its a royal venton coronet design toilet with a seperate cistern, the way I would describe it is, a toilet sat away from the wall, and the cistern is perched on the wall approx 12 inch above the toilet, it enters the toilet via a plastic 1.5 inch pipe (approx) she has dropped and smashed the lid, anyone know where I can get a new lid for her, seen one on ebay but its pink! I know I could get it sprayed but its going to be dear and its down near london.....and im from doncaster!!!!! any advice from anyone please!

    That is probably very old. Either make a homemade lid or better still fit a new cistern.

    They stopped making it in 1936.

    If the toilet is white best fit a complete new WC.

    Same advice applies even if it is not white ;)

    You can easily make a new one out of cheese, preferably a hard cheese. i'm sure you can find some. It has the added benefits of being right there if you're having a 0ump and are hungry, and also after a while it will mask teh smell of your smelly **.

    Do I win £5. Oops, sorry thought this was Viz.
