I tried to fix my headlight shining into the air issue, it seems the plastic cog has perished and it's totally ineffective, will have to take it out at some point.

Who fitted that clutch for you? I'm betting a pound to a pinch of salt, the input shaft splines will be rusty as can be, causing the clutch not to disengage correctly.

Most of the scuffing should polish out, or at least look a bit better, and another mirror sourced.

What a sickener though

I fitted the clutch so only myself to blame the kit was a borg and beck one and the input shaft was greased with the supplied sachet will just suffer it until it gets undriveable, I'm currently in Filey with the kids a friend is looking after the pooch and sent me the photo, I am back home tomorrow so can test out my new polisher see what it's like after and speak with neighbours see if anything was seen, just definitely put a downer on the last night another job I didn't need to add to the list

Couple of years ago, one of my least favourite group of road users, the drivers of light Vans, I thought their standard of driving could not possibly get worse. I was wrong. It has progressively worsened.

Today I took some bare Alloy Wheels up to Birmingham to get them refurbished in silver along with five metal coolant pipes and engine mounts to also get powder coated in black gloss.

I set up my cheap Car Cam as I usually do for the trip and I saw several instances of poor and selfish driving by too many light commercial van drivers.... all recorded on the mini/micro memory card. I viewed some of the footage and was very pleased at how good the pictures were. This cheap set-up just as good as the more expensive one I've been using for years.

Until a few years ago, I never felt a car camera would be necessary. Not now, I believe essential including one out the rear screen for those pesky "Tail Gaters" dangerously too close to my boot and yes, guess the colour of those Vans... got it in one!

Some of the extensive roadworks speed restrictions on the M5 in the Birmingham area were as low as 30 mph for miles. Deep joy negotiating those narrowed lanes with Monster six axle artics trying to maintain over 50 mph even in those lower speed restricted area. Far too close for comfort. If you drop back to avoid, they sit on your boot too!

Far too many folks stressed up to the eyeballs chasing money on our roads today. Another fatality on the M5 apparently.... RIP ...

Plus removing the hard shoulders in the area is a real master stroke...
