I ordered 2.5 litres of Triple QX interior cleaner and 2.5 litres of Triple QX tyre/bumper cleaner this week for the princely sum of 3.80 delivered..........the interior cleaner has arrived, the tyre/bumper cleaner is still to come....
Reckon that would restore the black side rub strips fitted to many Vx ages ago, including my Battlebus?

Try rubbing in a little used engine oil....I used to do that on a car that had black plastic front and rear bumpers that had faded, used to bring them up a treat :y

Yes I use old oil as well.  It works very well, on all faded plastics!  :y

As does baby oil.*

* This can also be liberally applied to your mistress/wife/ girlfriend tits and arse with excellent results. :)

Unfortunately most, even if they genuinely intend to, don't. And therein lies the crux of their peril...

And points do not outweigh the interest if you don't pay it off religiously. They merely become another justification.

Yes, agreed, it takes discipline. If you start to not pay off the full amount, you'll get in trouble quite quickly.

*IF* you are able to ensure always paid off, its a useful tool.  But I never buy anything on the CC unless I have the money in my current account to cover it.

It does mount up and it is easy to put more on plastic than you can remember.

Last month I had  CC bills of more than 8000 spread over 4 or 5 cards. Most of it was petrol for the bid red pussy. ::)

8 thousand?  ???

Its surprising how the Waitrose bill mounts up you know ::)

Lidl  and Aldi is closer to the truth. :)

Yep......credit cards are a great tool so long as as you pay them off in full each month. :y

In the hands of the immature and irresponsible they become a weapon of mass destruction. :-\

I managed to get 369 back on a selection of bamboo plants that were 'not as described' bought on a credit card.

As an apprentice, we had financial advisors give us all a presentation on various money issues. Before they started, one said that if we remember nothing else from the presentation, just remember to only ever get a repayment mortgage ..... which is what I did.  :y

I've had an endowment mortgage (disaster)

I've had a repayment mortgage (better)

I've had an interest only mortgage (expensive)

I keep coming across people with interest only mortgages these days.

I had one in addition to a repayment mortgage. Not good.

Dead money much like renting. :-X

My guess is big business will ensure we stay in the customs union and the single market.

So.....we won't really be leaving the EU even after we leave the EU. :)

Just realised not seen anything from Stemo for a while , has he flown or just on hols ?

Well. He is a scouser so I suppose there a 50% chance of him being banged up........

The other 50% could be down to him having dropped off the perch because he is old.

I don't learn much, but the last three yerrs have taught me quite bluntly, that if you need to finance something in order to get it, then you are too broke to buy it.

Not having access to credit of any sort only serves to reinforce the point.

The only reasonable exception is to buy a primary residence as that should be done using as large a deposit as possible and no more than a 15 year term. Which should be alot easier if you haven't financed the crap out of everything  ;)

Mortgages were always 25 years when I first had one.

Now, 30 and even 35 year periods of misery and destitution are becoming more popular........and this is after the bank has butt-f*ucked  you for a 20% deposit to start with. :)

Having said that buying a house works out far cheaper than renting one.

I stopped watching 'The Bridge' when the male detective took 2 vulnerable teenage girls back to his flat to sleep.

It's as though the script writers had no idea of the possible consequences. Couldn't take it seriously after that.

Be fair, his own two daughters of a similar age had gone missing, so an emotional attachment context was reasonable.
Having said that, it is reaching to think it would have been acceptable in this day and age. :y

There is that......but it would never be deemed appropriate for a policeman to take two vulnerable girls home......Even if wholly innocent. They could easily have come up with 'he touched us' scenario if so minded. Then what would happen?

See my 2nd sentence. :y

I already have and broadly agree. :)
