I'm perfectly happy with a standard car. My current car is pretty basic in terms of today's kit that's on offer. Longer term stuff there's always the risk of electrical gremlins so I like the fact...

I used to park my Triumph Street Triple R under a carport sometimes. Some random wet cat kept coming along and sitting on the seat and covering the bike in cat hair and muddy paws. It drove me...

I'm a big fan of small cars such as these. They just prove to me that you don't need 300+ bhp to have a laugh. The Abarths sound great too with the stock exhaust.

I would imagine that you could lightly sand and then lacquer. If I was to do that, I would sand only in the direction that the lathe would travel.

I've always just used a teaspoon, before now I've even just tipped a bit in the cap to estimate the measure. For a bigger detailer bucket you'll need 10ml as its 5ml per 10L.

They really need to get you in touch with their physio dept. Presumably they haven't automatically done this due to the infection not being directly related to your legs. I would give them a hand to...

Luckily, I haven't ever been in a chain when buying/selling but it sure does put me off moving that's for sure. Hope that things work out with it.

The MT range are definitely interesting looking bikes. I'm on the look out for tank pads/grips at the moment. The Techspec pads are a good product and don't chew your textile or leathers to pieces;...

I use Autoglym as found it to be good stuff. I tend to dilute it right down though to about 1:15. I'm coming to the end of it and have some Comma Xstream -65 now, at the weaker dilutions this 5L...

Well I'm not going to pass judgement on the dynamics/drivetrain as that could well be very good indeed. However, to look at it's a bit disappointing for something that supposed to be a hot hatch. The...

My Honda CB1000R

For a while I've fancied another motorcycle to have alongside my SH300i. I do really like the practically of the scoot, but I just fancied something for taking day trips out on nicer days.

I'm sure this applies a lot more to bikes than cars. I bought a brand new CB1000R this week. I got it for £2K below list price alongside 0%. Straight away the 0% will make the used examples less...

It's alright turning the wick up, but the clutches in the manual variants are of the 'just about good enough' variety; it'll probably eat itself before long. I'd rather have a Ford RS or basically...

Those ear plugs are something that I'll be looking into for sure :thumb:. I've just bought myself a CB650R and so I've been looking at the Givi small tanklock bags for that, so handy to have.

Primer wise I think as you say maybe an etch primer, or even something like ZG90 Galvanising spray which can be used as a primer.
