    Strut Braces.

    This is just something that has been bugging me for a while. How come you can pay such different prices from strut braces? If I'm not mistaken it's just a bar that bolts to the suspension, so what's the difference between the expensive and the cheap? Is it just branding? Or is there...

    Colouring Dashboard.

    Hey, I want to colour my dashboard like this one: I want to do it in white. I have checked halfords and they do not do a white spray, or are at least out of stock. I am right in thinking this has to be done with a special spray right? Anyone know where I can get it and what...
