I've never smoked.  It's probably the only thing in life I've got right!  ;D

Ooops wrong thread!  ::)  Not sure what happened there....  :-\

Do I get a prize?  ???  ;D

Well, you weren't joking when you said it was the only thing you got right, clearly. ;)

Still not heard a dicky from CP4L. Tossers.
Payment by credit card?

If so, then send them a snottogram giving them 2 weeks to sort it then go to the CC company and complain.

I might be interested in trying those for size - outside an Indian restaurant some time perhaps? :P  ::)

That is a definite possibility :y Once the weather warms up, I guess! ;D

Don't mind the temperature so much as the fact that it keeps precipitating. ::)

Are you thinking of going to Stoneleigh this year, by the way?

I made the mistake of ordering a battery for the kit car online once. That turned up with the casing smashed and acid everywhere.  ::)

Oh, I had to modify the shunt resistor in my flasher unit to stop it flashing at a daft rate due to the lower current draw. No way was I going to splash out 8 on a new flasher!

Is this changing to LEDs an easy process?  Never heard of it but then I lead an incredibly sheltered life!

It was in my case, as I just swapped to these:

http://www.bowerspartsonline.co.uk/lighting/front-lighting/led-front-lighting/land-rover-defender-73mm-led-clear-indicator-light-upgrade-rdxwipac

Front lights were land rover indicators anyway, but needed a bit of bracketry making up to mount them.

Rears were going on to new wheel arches, so just drill the 2 mounting holes and 1 for the wiring and bolt them up.

On a  production car it's probably less easy, although you can get LED replacement bulbs. No idea how good they are.

I have a couple of standard 7" units that are LEDs, if you fancy a change.. they 'stick out' a bit further than the normal Lucas units, so it makes the Cobra look a bit bug-eyed, but I don't imagine that would be noticeable with lights on stalks like the Westfield.

I might be interested in trying those for size - outside an Indian restaurant some time perhaps? :P  ::)

We don't have streetlights where I live, so they're not going to give me cancer. I do, however, tend to bump into things occasionally - particularly on the way back from the pub. ::)

It's funny how they seem to sense that you might not be on top of your game and tend to jump out in front of you!  ;D
Yep. It's very unfair. >:(

I think we are both heading for a new cold war and that the middle east is going to be a mess for decades to come. I'm not sure anything the west does or doesn't do is going to change that.

Last time Asshat used chemical weapons against his own people, Cameron faffed about trying to sell it to parliament and Obama blinked first. I do think the west needs to re-assert the red line on chemical weapons: use them and expect to have the capability to do so removed.

It will upset relations with Russia but, hell, they were going South rapidly anyway. ::)

I don't have a bunker - I wouldn't want to miss the best firework display ever. 8)

I'm still wondering what an SFO2SS is. Off to Mumsnet, I suppose... ::)
I have no idea what Mumsnet is. And I'm not even gonna google it, because I have a horrible feeling I can guess...
Of no interest to you, that's what it is, given that you only do Blue jobs. :y
Being the modern man like I am, I often do Yellow jobs, like cut the grass or make a brew...
Yes, I'm struggling to train mrs. KW to use the lawn mower, too.  ::)

The latest quality led sidelight bulbs put the standard Omega headlights to shame. Mind you, they do cost ten times more, so they bloody well should be better :D
I replaced the indicators front and back, brake lights and tail lights on the Westfield with LED ones yesterday. Powered them up to test and one of the sidelight bulbs has only gone and blown.. >:(

So.. may be going LED for them too. ;D

Not to worry, it'll be about ten o'clock before it goes dark soon, and no one goes out after ten o'clock.
We have staff members who don't have lights. I assume that's why in winter they get in late, and piss off early.
Given how sh1te a lot of car headlights are these days, I never fail to be amazed by the number of idiots driving around with only one working.

"One light W***ers", as Mrs KW and I call them. ::)

It's nice when you find you've made a mistake like that and, upon rectifying it, discover that, as a bonus, you haven't let the smoke out of anything expensive. ;D

Does anybody actually use arsebook?


Being the biggest, its the worse culprit, but all social media is scourge on society.
Well someone must use it, because they got the details of tens of millions of people.  ::)
Are you sure you have to use it for it to get your details? ::)
