Regarding those plates, I got some for when we go on a show. My normal ones are screwed on, but will need to be removed to put the show plates on in the morning on arrival at any event. What I'm wondering is how the plates you have are fixed, is it with what are basically thick stickers that came with my show plates? If so, how easy to remove and reapply?

Yes, I used the sticky tape that came with the plates. I would think they'll be pretty difficult to remove without bending the plates. It might be worth investing in some sticky backed velcro for shows. :yes:

MOT this morning. Passed with flying colours, so I spent the money I'd put to one side for potential repairs on a new laptop this afternoon!! :D

Hi Tony.

I've replied to your PM with details of Lee, who did the dent removal. He's still in business as he's recently removed dents for another member on here, following my recommendation. :yes:

MOT today, failed unfortunately. Two front tyres and two broken rear springs - could be worse I suppose.

I found a local tyre place online (Tyre Force in Blackburn), and have to say, was very impressed. Extremely friendly and professional with competitive prices and, from a female point of view, not at all patronising. I'd definitely recommend them. They also knew a good car when they saw one! :D

Bet it's them damned cattle grids caused it. :thumbsdown:

They can't blame it on you not looking after it that's for sure. Not much really though, can't argue with that :thumbsup:

Finally got round to replacing my old GT Tuning washer bottle cap, as it had surprisingly deteriorated :o

You can mod an old door cap to make a nice washer bottle cap
