    Good luck with that - looks like you may be OK though for temperature as it shouldn't be too hot.

Trying to get an idea on the repair for mine. Thinking should I just fill, sand and etch primer it then sort it properly when I de wrap.

    No paint touch up. There is no marks in the dents and he's very confident that he will not damage the paint when removing the dents.
    Time will tell.

    Curb Crawler is for the most curb marks on the alloys.

    The chips will be interesting. I think mine is plastered from the holiday trips to the south of Spain.

    Nice views but ****e roads.
    I should have got more painted when I got the passenger side done. O well next time.

    If your wrapping yours, can you just fill the dents and then cover?

    Me and a mate looked at gumball a few years ago when it had just started. We were going to do it in his Evo 7 and get a loan to pay the £15k for entry. Would have been epic but we bottled it.

    I've always wanted to do one of the banger races where you have £500 to buy a car then you rally across Europe.

    That's the only thing... The entry fee, keeps it select to the posh, they should do a poor mans event. That banger race sounds like a good idea

    The bedroom is so far off finishing it's not even funny. I worked silly hours this week so didn't get anything done. Gotta wire in a few sockets and finish wall paper stripping today/ tomorrow. Almost ready to get it all plastered though, and then it's coving, skirting boards, build computer desk/ cupboard and painting etc. Give me a few more weeks and all will be done. I'm properly sick of living in the spare room, it's TINY.

    She has a list of jobs, and to be fair she's decent at them. I do need to go snagging when I get home, she's so critical of my work and I let her off lightly. I'm just too nice, lol.

    haha...you'd have to make sure you do a good job though! I let very few people work on my house as it drives me insane when people botch decorating. I'd rather spend some extra time and make it look better...unfortunately my mates don't agree with my way of thinking and as such aren't invited to help me

    I'm in a frigging good mood today though! I think it's cos it's friday and I only have a few hours left of work.

    I found a bruise after flying over my handlebars
