    Following on from the washer post, have you any good ideas on how to clean a windscreen that I think has wax on it, I use the Diamond Bright product on the paint work but it's hard not to let it run onto the windscreen, any way I have tried lots of cleaner on the window but when it rains and the wipers are on the visibility is poor.

    Thanks

    Reminds me of the drive in my Mini the evening after I got married (many years ago - 1967!) when some nice kind person put kippers on the exhaust manifold. It was OK until it started getting cold and we turned the heater on. The car smelts like a fish shop for ages.

    Yep, standard practice, kippers on the manifold, punched card chaff in the demister vents.

    Ahhh the old days were such fun!

    Not a wedding stunt, but I do recall a time when Dad & I were trying to patch up a hole in the exhaust with Gun Gum, while on holiday. Only trouble was, we had no water in the car, only a pint of milk.

    Can you imagine how that stank!!!!! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked2.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked2.gif
