That's what's I'd heard, new legislation or something. I used oven cleaner the other day, not as good but it worked if left for long enoughI used it in the past. It's not as good as it used to be (they took out one of the active chemicals due to some stupid regulation and replaced it with something less powerful). I find it works best if you wrap the parts up in plastic to prevent evaporation.
cheers for getting the bits for me today the fogs look the piece on my car just need the surrounds now and i am loving the boot handle how do the tyres look nowToday I made the perilous journey to Hampshire to pick up some fancy wheels. Total journey there and back was about 190 miles, used half a tank of petrol - so about £20
Stacked up safely in the back seat:
Popped to my local tyre centre and had the tyres taken off. I'd prefer to work on these without having to worry about the tyres getting in the way. Paid a fiver and it was done in less than two minutes:
The wheels are filthy so they look pretty bad. The previous owner lived on a farm so I guess it'll be down to muddy tracks etc. Giving them a clean tomorrow so I can assess the overall work needed to bring them back up to scratch:
Tyres ready to go back on once the wheels are finished (they need a good clean too)
Went to visit @Jamie Sykes to drop off his fogs. He gave my tyres the retro white wall treatment:
(it's actually just tyre foam)
Got some extra door handles from Jamie so I can get those colour coded. Already rubbed them down with some 240 grit, followed by 600 grit then some primer.
Only need corsa shocks if using massively cut springs.Just bought some 35-40mm lowering springs (front and back). I'm hoping with the 14" wheels the arch gap will close up a bit.
I heard you need Corsa B shocks for the rears though, is that absolutely necessary or just preferred?
Nooooo....quite the opposite, Prince Stuart....you will go through the time and effort to do 40mm lowage then, approximately one day later, you'll look at the arch gap and think "needs moar lows"...and it begins again...Nice, that'll save me £40 and a load of time
i could always give you a hand mate if you needed any help doing itThanks Clodo (^_^ )
I'm going to try and have another stab tonight. I bought some block connectors so it's easier to swap the wires around. Last night I was twist-taping whilst testing, which was cumbersome and it kept breaking. I'll also try and get my better half or brother to help out, as I was having to press the brake pedal with a mop so I could see whether the light was turning on or not!
