Recent Purchase Picture Thread

I've seen this on a couple of other forums and it seems to be quite popular. The aim of the thread is as per the title. You post up a picture of something you have recently purchased.

I have found this sort of thread to be quite useful as they have given me solutions to a problem that i'd never have thought about. Or just linked something that is a good idea & useful to own. It's a break from the norm as well to see other things detailing related or not that people have bought

So i'll start.

Recently i bought some of this to treat the car with.



Included this for free



Today i bought a new drill as my cordless one packed in after 7 years (probably something to do with being dropped on concrete)

Well my last purchase was my Tesco shopping, but you don't want to see photos of Tesco Value assholes and ears Sausages or Bananas and stuff, so it has to be this book which I got last week.



I wasn't sure about it to be honest, as I'd seen LJK's columns in Bike magazine years ago, where he would examine the efficiency of the double underground sump on the the new Anthrax 1100 in minute detail, and pepper his piece with gert big long words wot I didn't understand.

Happily, although I've only had a quick flick through, it looks pretty interesting and non too extravagant in the language used, least for a dimwit like me anyway.
It also provides more proof that there really is not much new on cars or bikes these days, only computers. Overhead cams and four valve heads, hydraulic disc brakes, air conditioning and all sorts of other things, all first appeared on wheezing old rattletraps and splutterbuses years ago.
I also didn't know that Hitler's favourite make of biff about - Mercedes, was named after a Chief Rabbi's Grand daughter.

Anyway, that was my last purchase, can't remember what was before that.

Well, I'd originally spotted these at Ford specialists Burton Power where I've had various parts from for this project over the past 12 months, but then saw the same thing at Demon Tweeks, and as I wanted a few other clips & fixings from there, I went with theirs. Can't fault them for quality, fit and finish - absolutely spot on! Proof of the pudding will come on the first drive of course, but I can't envisage a problem.
