Re: Cheque book restos and lack of knowledge/research

There is some really silly questions that have asked about 10 million times. Always used to help the lazy with links etc as I learnt everything I needed to know from forums and books but nowadays a lot of pure laziness.

Re: WOW - Sound damping! Turning to the dark side of the force

Re: Mechanical fuel pump question!

I would go electric mate. I cannot trust mechanical, the thought that on way to santapod its gonna fail and dump fuel into your engine, only noticeable when it's lit the light and wrecked your engine. I had 4 fuel pumps leak in succession from GSF so I switched to facet.

Re: Camp sites trying to charge double

Camping isn't what it used to be! What's it all about the per person thing? + awning + dog + children? I'm inclined to go to the smaller sites now, the £18 or less a night type ones. Too commercial by far.

Re: Can I use rivets on Hub Cap Clips?

Rivets do work, but rivet from the inside of wheel so the squashed bit doesn't interfere with wheel fitment against the drum. you could tap the holes and fit screwhead bolts,grinding the bolts flush. Dont forget to remove powdrecoat from around wheelbolt holes :)
