    I had a Go Pro brought for me a while ago and I have used it 4 times and it sits in its box now, so my advice is don't spend a fortune unless you intend to get a lot of use out of it.

    I know how you feel Nick. Mine is tucked up with Smig`s ( the lifesaver has spare garage room) while we find a house in the area we want to live in ,and so we are at the mother in laws until such time. In effect I suppose we have been homeless over xmas.. I should have started a crowd funding page

    I have been through many. Go Pro Hero 2, Hero 3, Session, SJCAM 5000, SJ8 Air, Drift Stealth 2, Drift Ghost HD, and a couple of remote bullet cams. Without exception, the image quality on the GoPros is hands down better than anything else when it comes to rapid motion. If image quality is important to you - I am not talking resolution here, but the camera's capability to compress the image cleanly and quickly with artefacting - then buy yourself a 2nd hand GoPro and be done. As said above, GoPro just keep re-inventing themselves with more models with more features that are largely irrelevant. If you're after cheap as chips basic camera capability, I'd suggest the SJCAM range too, the older 5000 series is size-compatible with the GoPro so you can share all the accessories. For helmet cameras (action cams) for motorbike or mountain biking, I would change my recommendation though, the new Drift Ghost X would get my vote hands-down for practicality. If you are interested, I have a number of cameras I can bring along to the next meet from the above selection and I'd be quite happy to get rid of a few of them so you can check them out and make me an offer on one if you like?

    I'd follow the advice of the canny Yorkshire man. The newer go pro camera's do loads of things you will never need, fine if you are making the next star wars epic but not needed on a road car. I think mine is a hero 3 black edition, there should be loads of those available cheaply now as people update and then you can afford some extra batteries and mounts. My children and wife did make a film with mine where the main actors were sticklebacks, following their story from stream to net to bucket and then back again so you can do other things with them if you want. I may put the directors cut on YouTube if I can think of a good title!

    Have a look at the range from SJ Cams. I have one and it is very good and the more recent versions have loads of features. Cheers Steve

    Yeah, i can't justify a GoPro for the few times a year i use it, so i bought something similar to this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Crosstour-Waterproof-Underwater-Wide-angle-Rechargeable/dp/B073WWSYJK/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1546108657&sr=8-2-spons&keywords=action+camera&psc=1 Does the job - here's an example: https://zerolifebuild.blogspot.com/2017/09/zedster-makes-friends.html

    Erratic running can sometimes be due to leaks in the vacuum system. Mine had a couple of small splits in these and was all over the place with tick over and caused the spark plugs to foul up. I would check these out as they would cause the mixture to be wrong. I found leaks by making a smoke box to blow into system and show up the leaks - saved taking everything to pieces. Otherwise if you have spark I would concentrate on fuel, maybe blocked or partially blocked injectors among many others. Best of luck Jim

    I've got a pair of red vinyl decals saying ZERO. Overall size is 15cm high x 55 cmm wise. Would look great on the sides of a car or maybe one on the back and the other on you toolbox (as long as it isn't red). They have the carrier tape on the front so should be easy to fit. As it's Boxing Day they're in sale, so I'll post them out free to a Club Member or a fiver to non-Members. If you want them, say so on here and them pm me your address and I'll post them out to you.

    As far as I am concerned Christmas ends at midnight. I'm in the garage tomorrow without fail, with approval from the other members of the family so that they can watch what television they want.

    The main roof panels were taken down and we used them as templates to mark out the new ones. The material we used was 3mm sign board which is a light, solid material that comes with a clear protective film on one side (the side that sign makers normally laser print on) and it can be cut with a sharp knife and also drilled. Being plastic, it’s impervious to water so if it does get condensation on the back, it won’t fall to bits like hardboard would. As well as the horizontal panels, we also replaced the vertical ones with the roof window openings. We had to remove this panel one side to re-seal the leaky window and when we did, we had to remove that plastic angle moldind we’d used on the corners. Unfortunately, the double-sided tape we used was a bit aggressive and it pulled the decorative trim of the caravan trim panels to the parts were scrap anyway. The new ones were easy to cut out as we had a template and the clear window panels on them were unscrewed and swapped over.The new panels were a simple swap and in place of the 15x15x1 plastic angle on the external corners, we used 15x3x1 with the log leg horizontal and the short leg vertical. The mean that the trim would easily conform to the curved part of the ceiling without needed to be heated up and formed. Once again the corner moldings were held in place with double sided tape – but a slightly weaker version. This is the finished ceiling, nice and bright and lighter and more durable than the hardboard.
