    Angry Snowflake curse strikes me again !!!

    Painted the calipers today and while waiting for them to dry a little , decided to clean the wheels up inside and out.
    trouble is i tripped over the handle of the scissor jack so it was the wheel or broken fingers !!!

    Last picture is the front wheel (undamaged) showing the caliper. The line across the spokes is a reflection from an extension lead.


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !

    It was very tempting, but as i've got a weeks fishing in France coming up in 4 weeks time and i hate pain thought better of it !
    Cheaper to have the wheel touched up than cancel the holiday !

    Why when you drop buttered toast on carpet does it always land greasy side down???

    Myth....

    What a shame mate. Next time remove the stupid handle from the jack
    Little touch up and it will be sorted.
