In Topic: Alloy Wheel Cleaner.

15 June 2017 - 06:44 AM

I jet wash first, then use Wonder Wheels or Auto Glym wheel cleaner working with various "stiffish" brushes to agitate. Leave to dwell for a couple of minutes then agitate again followed by a jet wash. If it a long time since they were properly cleaned I follow up with Iron X which dissolves iron particles that are stuck in the paint/lacquer. Even with very clean looking wheels you'll see contamination being dissolved and turning purple. Another jet wash, dry, tar remover (IPA), then a wax with Poorboys wheel wax. 

Now I know you are sitting there saying ffs! But now they will almost hose rinse clean the next time you wash them.

Every year I just take the screen off for my MOT with no issues

In Topic: 2B Chassis

I'm 6 foot 2 and fit my 2B fine although I would disagree that it takes normal width seats. I initially bought some Recaros from a Rover and they simply wouldn't go in. You can "force" the sierra donor seats in but you sit right to the outside of the chassis if you do.

Welcome to the club, just one question? Living in Morecombe, do you really expect any sunny days?   :rofl:  (I used to live in Caton so I remember the weather in north Lancashire!)

Cremation isn't very green though Bob, lots or energy required to incinerate body. When I go (my daughter has already planned my demise for the money, little does she know that if there's any left is going to charity!) I want to buried in a wicker coffin under a freshly planted native tree, preferably an oak!
