    Wax / Polish in Nooks and Crannies Cleaning ?

    I use cotton buds which are also good for going round the edges of badges etc. Or for more fiddly/stubborn bits I've found toothpicks/dental flosser sticks can work well.

    Video'd Elon Musk's Starlink Satellites

    Was really good viewing last night, saw loads of them. I was focused on the Starlink-5,6 satellites which were all following the same path (SW to NE ish), I must have counted 20 or so at least in a few minutes. But it amazed me how many satellites were travelling in other directions, both N to...

    Your day in three words.

    Was defecated on. only yesterday I was telling my wife how I liked to watch the starlings fly into the nest in next doors gutter. Their final approach is do graceful and precise. And they really come in at speed before they flare and land . today I was on the flight path and one sh@t on me...

    Do You Remember.....................

    I remember we used to put empty crisp packets in the oven and they’d shrink so you could make a key ring from them. I might try it again when my wife isnt looking. That could be the challenge for the day - covert non-sanctioned oven use! technically I’m banned from this kind of thing after I...

    Do You Remember.....................

    I was in the Air Cadets in the late 1980’s and for sure there was less consideration for safety, however it taught you to take care of your own safety. Using pyrotechnics on night exercises etc. Saying that there was one time I thought we were pushing the limits a bit far. We had a fantastic...

    I think the Raleigh was called a Vector? If you ever go to MB World at Brooklands have a look in Brooklands museum. They have a superb bicycle display with loads of 1970’s and 80’s bikes from Raleigh. Including a Vector, Bomber, Boxer, Burner BMX etc i had a Redline BMX

    Or Avonbar the mini specialists. Always my dream to have a mini with an Avonbar 1380 mated to a Jack Knight developments 5 speed box. I did end up buying something from Avonbar - bucket seats for my Alfa Sprint.

    Planes, cobra's and a SL...

    Yes I seem to remember a story with two 1960’s race car owners (Ferrari?) having done similar, and both were claiming theirs was the original. One had taken the chassis I think and the other taken the engine and transmission. I think the argument became more complicated as race cars in this...

    Planes, cobra's and a SL...

    Ah but what about AutoKraft?! Now is that a replica or a continuation? That's a debate! They were based at Brooklands, i'm not sure if they're still going but I used to seem them occasionally in the neighbourhood.

    W205 C63S 'things'

    That would possibly be the M3 junction on the M25? Maybe it’s taking M3 as M to the power 3!

    W213 drivers seat in need of love

    I’ve used Colourlock and highly recommend them. They suggest sending a swatch for them to match to or send a headrest etc, as even with my colour code (which comes up as Alpaca Grey) they said there are about 5 versions! I was fortunate in that I’m close enough to take the car there so they...

    Virtual Banger Meet - Saturday 4th April

    Ha ha - well i'm going to join in! I've thankfully only really had one car that I didn't really like. And it was the only time I bought with my head rather than heart, so there's a lesson there! My beloved Alfa Sprint Cloverleaf was written off and as I was saving for a house I bought a...

    I actually cycled past this place today! I was on a skiing trip in the alps with my school, must have been about 1988, and we saw two disguised XM’s doing some testing.

    Nanolub Solid Lubricant - A Miracle?

    I used to work opposite a top U.K./European drag racer (“Grumpy” Dave Wilson, 5 time top methanol European champion. He used to swear by Prolong additives. just having a look these seem to be alkane based rather than containing solids. i never used it, I figured the oil manufacturers would...
