    Brake stuff!

    Can I take the 4x bleed nipples with rubber covers. And if they fit on a 3.2: the s bends and brake shoe kits. I'll have a look at parts fitment tonight. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  2. I have this as my everyday compressor. It's fine for blowing a bit of air, tyres, and it will run tools like a drill or an MBX for small jobs. For a DIY guy you will be fine and it's a fair compromise with a small footprint. You should be able to run HVLP spray guns from it but I've not tried yet. Smart repairs it will cope with but a door or bonnet lid and you would need need to be careful as you don't want to run out of puff. I've used it for cavity way and underseal stuff no problems.

    Sports Seats

    I have these as well and they are just great, but need to get the bolster redone. Any recommendations? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  4. I've not got to the engine yet. Do these go underneath or from inside the bay? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  5. Such a cool thing. SP72, if it doesn't work for you then please give me a shout.
  6. Thanks Baz, I used the following info for setting up the angle. Printed out the template and cut it out, and set the angle using this. https://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/911_caliper_rebuild/911_caliper_rebuild.htm I loved the zinc but it is sacrificial and will tarnish so quickly hence I went down route to use a black high temp coating option.

    Aldi Specials

    I think they design them to look the same but the Aldi one is ok as a trickle charger if you can fool the voltage sensor as described above. The ring and Ctek can deliver 10+ amps, do AGM batteries, fast charging, and have power supply mode. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  8. Thanks for measurements, I think they are a set but if end up with double front pair then I will share a set with you Lund.
  9. Finished in the POR15 high temp caliper paint. New pots and seals installed. Hopefully won't have to touch them again. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Aldi Specials

    I think I have the same one. It doesn't seem to bring temperamental batteries back to life (I bought a Ring charger from Costco which does this) and I found sometimes it gave a good voltage reading but the battery performed poorly until I cycled it using the Ring. For a tenner it can get you out of a hole - and great to lend to people.

    Aldi Specials

    "Smart" charger I bought from Aldi for £10 is just about ok as a slow charger, don't expect it to perform like a Ctek! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  12. Is that Corteco number behind the label 19025501? This pair should be 300mm length for the front. And the one with the yellow Goodridge tags should be 250mm length for the rear. Please confirm lengths and I will process my weekly payment. Great timing as I've just refurbed the calipers.
  13. If they fit a 3.2 I will take these please. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  14. I can't believe you just made me go into the rain to check my front lights, which thankfully are ok! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
