Re: Original forecourt prices.

@SteveClem, I have the same thing going on, I think those cars we took for granted years ago bought us happy memories so we keep the cars as they are part of it, I still have a love of beetles and BMC cars nothing will replace them, New cars just do not have the same affect.

Re: How do you remove body wrap?

I helped remove a wrap from a mini charity event car, It was better with heat guns and left out in the sun, But as the paint underneath was not great it pulled away some areas, Anyway it is a great looking traveller with a bit of history.

Re: Uses for old engine oil?

@SteveClem, Some places burn it in heaters mixed with fuel oil, I bet that modern oil has some nasty things in as it is synthetic, Not that contaminated old oil is going to be good.

Re: Pics

Due to the number of forums and sites i still use http://puush.me as it allows me to live edit and all the pictures just have a web address the only thing i wish it had was an App version for my phone but i think you can use it from a mobile on the web browser.

Re: Has anyone seen the Vinnie jones fox killing tweet or yahoo

I have been veggie for many years, I have no problem with meat eaters as i used to eat meat but killing for fun or just because you can seems inhumane in this day and age.

Re: Cam follower breather oil trap disintegration

I also found a rusty mess inside the breather so i cleaned it out and left it to soak in a citric acid powder mix for a few days then i dipped it in zinc primer and when it dried i pushed stainless steel wire wool in which was a scotch brite 3M pad, seems to be holding up ok.

Re: Our other hobbies and passions

@steveclem, That is a big problem i have with furniture i put time into it and then it ends up living with me, I love the Gplan stuff and 60's items i have never had much love for new furniture i feel an old couch or chair has more comfort a bit like old foot wear.

I have a very messed up sleep pattern after years of doing caring, It just feels normal to be awake at odd hours even though i am no longer doing the caring, Maybe i can get a job as a night watchman :roll:
