Re: Baldies, how do you protect your head from burning under your helmet.

Don't think I could walk round with a bald head, I used the clippers about 10 years ago with no grade attachment on, the Mrs went mad, said I looked nearly 70 instead of 48! So my suggestion is a wig!!

Re: Two metre rule

Here in south staffs some roads are in a bad state and now the council want £46 to empty your green bin once a fortnight. Meanwhile the CEO of the council is on a disgusting salary of £210,000.

Re: How Can I Get It So Wrong...Car Mechanics

I did that with a 2 day old Mercedes Vito van a few years ago, I whacked the windscreen with a hammer on the outside and told the firm a stone had shot up from the road!! 93,000 miles in 3yrs I did in that van!

Re: Hydraulic rear brake - all the gear no idea...

Made by clarkes! They use DOT fluid so that may have absorbed a fair amount of water in the atmosphere.
See if you can open the bleed nipple and let a small amount of fluid out?
