Unfortunately the son has moved to Hull & taken the business with him, so it's not as easy these days.
Not Phat Phuckers motor sickles?
Nope, they were RS Motorcycles but it's now R&T Custom Design.

I've made every effort to avoid blue bags, although I've not unboxed anything yet.

All wil be revealed tomorrow...

News: no blue bags were encountered, and the Disco is mobile again. Although the osr calliper put up a fight and might have to be sacked off as soon as I can get a replacement ordered.

Pics to follow when I'm sober.

More shenanigans tomorrow afternoon with the PAS pump, probably.

Yeah, but do they sell it for slightly under a quid if you buy a dozen that'll take ages to use up?

The bastards got me bulk buying last time with the nitrile gloves...

I've still got some brake cleaner somewhere that I bought from Halfords in about 2007... I lost it before I used it up :-)
