I do understand what you are saying - the cases are too stiff, yes? Mine needed replacing last week mainly because my fingernails had got to "girly" length and damaged the casing: but the fob was rather old.

My wife can operate the buttons easily, and she is a 7 stone weakling, skinnier than a racing snake!

Agreed, Tilbo. When they choose to behave in an inhuman way, why should we treat them humanely?

TB, here's sopmething else that I bought last week for you to ctiticise!

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/For-Vauxhall-Opel-Vectra-Astra-Omega-3-Button-Remote-Key-Fob-Case-repair-A47/162512736244?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

My previous pikey fob had lasted at least 5 years, worked well and was a doddle to fit, so I am happy. This one is UK sourced, cheap (2.49) and delivered nextday.

Slavery was down to the greedy plantation owners of America who wanted cheap/free labour on their estates. We only got involved because we were a staging post for the long journey from Africa to America - ships back then couldn't make it in one hop.
Several of the slaves managed to jump ship at London and Bristol, hence the beginning of the ghettoes in those places.
The Africans themselves must share the blame, as they were instrumental is pulling the potential slaves from the jungle: white men could not survive in there, so the natives had to do it for them.
Not our fault, no need to feel guilty.

Even then, though, they had to justify their attitudes with a disclaimer - "I have to think of my business".

But why should we feel guilty, Doctor, just to go along with the thought police who wish to control what we think and say?
I saw thatfilm last night  on YouTube, and it simply reflected the way we were at that time: quite refreshing, though!

My mother frequently used a wool officially described as "Nigger Brown" and nobody found it unusual or offensive, just descriptive, as Dr. Opti said.

Exactly. TB: it's not what you say but how you say it. I once had a Jamaican customer whom I called "Wogchops" when we met and she laughed her head off - then called me "White Honky"!

Do they fit? Check.
Do they work? Check.
Are they cheap? Check.

For less than 100 for wishbones/droplinks/track rods, what more do you want/need ::)
The single most expensive part is the geometry adjustments after.  So if they only last the warranty period (if you're lucky), it still makes it the expensive option.

64 for full geometry setting on a Hunter machine at Tyre-Smart in Witham - with OOF discount, so not that dear, TB.

Ron.

As with many things, the cheapest often works out far from the cheapest.

An alternative solution to your steaming problem could be a heated mirror, often incorporating a cabinet behind it as a bonus storage space.
No link for you, but a quick look on ebay might help.

Conflicting views, Webby! As I said earlier, I am happy with my ATP wishbone kit, which Serek fitted for me a year ago and still fine. Perhaps you could ask Serek what he thought of the quality of the kit?
