  1. Where does he work so that I know to avoid going there
  2. I found a website quite some time ago that will let you compare the sizes of wheels and how such a change will affect your speed. Have a look at this and see if it will help you. Tyre size comparison HTH

    Way back in the early 1980's I towed my race car with a dolly (A frame) although the laws for towing were different back then. The current laws for towing state that an unbraked towed vehicle must be under 750Kgs OR half the weight of the towing vehicle, whichever is the lesser. There are lots of websites that will give you more detailed information on towing. HTH
  4. Did you try this guy https://www.facebook.com/Bathoscars/posts/exhaust-heat-shields-fabricated-to-any-size-and-with-personalised-logo/728478694227765/ HTH
  5. A switch is not just a switch. Switches come in two varieties, Normally Open and Normally Closed, so you need to ascertain what type you have in your car before you run out and buy one of the wrong type. I would assume that the brake light switch that is controlled by the brake fluid pressure would be a N.O. switch and it closes when the brake pressure activates it. Reed switches activated by a magnet come in both varieties so be careful about which one you use. I would be more inclined to use a micro-switch with the arm on it. These have 3 contacts giving the benefit of having both N.O. and N.C. contacts so should suit most users needs. Available from RS for under £5.
  6. I have an old 50ltr and an old 25ltr connected together as you describe and I use them as a receiver tank when I need lots of air

    Sad News.

    I did not know Bob but I am sure that he will be sadly missed by his close family and friends. My sympathies to you all.
