Will be an option in the iphone camera menu somewhere to disable it.

Will need to rehost the pictures you already have once you've stripped the exif data.

Fitted new wishbones (Lemforders) ready for the M.O.T. and now my back is stiff!  Have to check/adjust the tracking and camber tomorrow.

Done nothing to mine, but did spend most of yesterday afternoon putting a new exhaust on Tunnie's dad's car, and putting the one that came off onto Tunnie's car (don't ask, not quite sure I understood either ;D).

What I will say, is the Eternalcar one is a better fit than the new-style genuine GM one :o
