Got my bumper grill fitted today. Looks absolutely perfect with the new lights!

What a palava to change though.  ::)

Got the bumper off. Luckily what I believe to be original factory plastic welds on the tabs weren't very strong and a bit of brute got the old grill off with no damage.

But the plastic welded it all back together with the new grill. Ten years (an hour in real terms) later and it's back together perfect. Also gave me the opportunity to spray ten ton of under seal up I all the crevices behind the front bumper  :y

All looking good then, Mr bear, and you have a spare to prep and paint. :y

Was very nice to meet you young bear, you now know the secret, and my mind cleansing torch wasn't working.. Thanks for your vist.  :y  :D was a pleasure to meet you in person. :)

Because its all about me, and its that bloke Blair's fault.

Only if your licence allows it ;)

Any licence passed after 97 will too

Doesn't affect those with a class 1. :)

Anything over 3.5t is considered commercial, and anyone who passed their test after '97 requires a separate test to drive over 3.5t or tow a proper (+750kg) trailer.

It's not fudging the facts, merely ticking the appropriate box ::) it doesn't actually tell you anything beyond the fact that it is insured, thereby confirming whether you should pay the 4 for actual information... You could otherwise pay only to find that it's not insured ;)

Correct, you may find the person driving said vehicle, might not have the relevant categories to aim that thing.

It is a very common thing nowdays, ignorance of law changes regarding driving categories.

When i was a boy in tut war, we was told on the car with the flat battery, make sure headlights are switched on, to eliminate voltage surge.

8mpg and a 200 gallon tank... 8 gallons an hour at 56 mph, that's 25 hours of driving, or just over a day ::)

How long before the tacho makes you stop for a break, though?*

*assuming you haven't disconnected it, of course. Because nobody would ever do that.

450L tank 1600ks. After 4 1/2 hour a 45min break.  To do a 10 hour drive will need two 45 breaks.

Disconnecting tacho hasn't been done since advent of digi-tacho, use a magnet now.
