Re: Disc brakes

For my wife and I the pleasure of driving our Morris Traveller is because it is 'old' and a bit quirky and needs a bit of effort and concentration.

Re: for those who like cookies

Thank you for your recipe. Do you have a picture of the finished product to go with that?

I think we're going to need a whole new Forum section for home baking and recipes.

Re: Stopped getting notifications

And they're back again. Odd how the notifications stop for a period and then restart.

Re: Stopped getting notifications

Mine notifications have stopped again. Not sure exactly when but I suddenly realised the Message Board had been very quiet for some time and sure enough there were loads of notifications outstanding when I loaded it up.

Re: how many times can you T cut?

A clay bar removes surface contaminants (such as tar, tree sap, paint over-spray) without removing any paint and leaves the surface very smooth ready for polishing and waxing. If you've never used one you will be amazed at how much crud it removes even from a seemly 'good' finish. It may not be the ...

Re: how many times can you T cut?

Have you tried using a clay bar before you use polish and wax to see if that improves the finish?

Re: Gasket material for Dyson vacuum

The new gasket arrived yesterday and everything was put back together. Seems to work fine and it is definitely sucking more than it was, but it will get a proper try out this weekend.

Thanks for eveyone's help. Don't know what I would have done without your input.

Thanks for that. It is amazing that so much information about flights is available to anyone with a PC or a smartphone.

On a similar theme, I heard an unusual engine a few days back and using the flight radar app on my phone discovered the plane overhead was an Antonov propellor plane of some description.
What app are you using?
