Well there has been absolutely nothing going on with my car of late. If it's done twenty miles in the last two months I'd be amazed. I've got a glovebox to shelf conversion I've been putting off for a couple of years. If I can motivate myself I might have a stab at that

I feel an urge to pull the head off the car give the pistons a check over and replace my rod bearings. Any suggestions for which to go for? King XP series seem to be an obvious choice but am I missing out on something as good/cheaper?
I've got both ACL and king CR4600XP on my shelf and I ran ACL last time and this time I'm going king and I've got to say after building several W11 engines by far the smoothest with the king XP and I believe the king feel better.

If you need XP bearings I've imported a few sets as they aren't available at the moment but you know where to find me

Time for a little side project. Team Dynamics 1.2 centre caps always go manky with age. I've bought two sets now at nearly thirty quid a set and they've both done it despite me never using any harsh wheel cleaners. So this time I've decided to turn this

Into something a bit more appealing, although possibly a bit OTT for a lot of people

Very handy having a vinyl machine around the place.

I like it, I did something similar but with an orange Mini slogan, I don’t suppose you can do the front and back badge center’s In black with an orange slogan?

I'll have to wait for the rain to stop but it shouldn't take long
This kinda thing? This is black over orange but you can have pretty much whatever combo you like

ps, this one isn't stuck full down as it was coming off again

You can do Mini badges? I need a new sticker on the rear as it's coming off.
