  2. Much of the Media is just there to poke people with sticks. If we didn’t have daily empty shelves pictures how much less panic buying would we have? Much of the Media pour petrol, fan the flames and then near gleefully report elderly and NHS workers in tears as they can’t get any food. Anything apparently fair game to sell a few more papers.

  3. Yes you have to keep up with the guidelines and yes that makes it more tricky. Lockdown is about the timing. Too early and everybody is safe but the virus is still out there and the economy grinds to a halt. Once everybody comes out they all get the virus, too late and the NHS is overwhelmed and people die that with access to medical assistance would have survived. So we went in a little lax but the curve is well on the up so it’s time to really get the brakes on the spread. It’s let’s get really serious time now. Going outside to remote places is sort of the right idea but if e

  5. Apart from destroying the centre diff quickly (or axle diff if you have different diameter tyres on each side of the same axle), it can cause dangerous handling characteristics. It was one of the issues that lead to a badly modified 110 ending up in a ditch and drowning the owners kids. Just don’t even think about it. You shouldn’t even have different tread patterns of the same tyre dimensions - all the tyres should match, including the spare.

  6. This may be the one shining light: Irrefutable climate and pollution data, the likes of which would have been unthinkable three months ago. Likely a collapse in cheap flying, and hopefully less stuff pointlessly shipped around the planet because its "cheaper". One can but hope.

  7. Why are you expecting everyone to be wearing a mask, when it’s been proven that they offer no material benefit?

  10. True, most people haven't that that experience. So for most people it's a waste of time. And will deny the masks to those who do need them (who haven't been trained either, but should help stop them getting infected when some dikhead spits at them).

  11. Metric is evil. It encourages simpleton thinking. Having a diversity of number bases causes us to engage our brains. Decimalisation is a plot to rob us of our mathematical intellect, so the powers that be can use statistics to hoodwink is. Evil.

  15. Nice work James, I really like the cladding, will look even better when it has weathered in a bit. Are you going to paint the floor before you move into it? If you're going to be there a long time it might be worth looking at the cost of an epoxy floor?

  16. Idiot behaviour should get called out. Yes sometimes sensible actions get caught up with muppets which is unfortunate but Snowdon hug a thons are not sensible. Really people can’t be trusted so let’s stop trusting move along to rationing and martial law.

  20. This. I'm envious of those worrying about rice, bog roll and not being able to go to the pub: I can see what's coming and it isn't pretty. The loss of life (in every possible respect; not just people dying) will be orders of magnitude worse than the virus itself. None of us are about to have the life we thought we would. Sing it with me? How sweeee-eee-eeeet to be an idiot....

  23. Just about every time it is mentioned on the news, it is stated they effectively do nothing after a very short amount of time. Psychologically quite effective though, and at least stops you from touch two of the virus entry points into the body.

  24. OK a bit of a Coronavirus isolation update. I have been working on a few things First I have re trimmed my seats with Masai black and red stitching. They look great and were really not hard to do once you have watched a couple of online videos. I would really recommend doing this if your seats are ripped or manky

  25. Yep - only issue is all the parts places being closed & not wanting to spend vast sums of cash on it.

  26. After fitting up the trims for the main door aperture and working out how I’m going to do my hinges I started framing up. It’s a very slow process for an amateur like myself but I got the smaller of the two doors done. The larger one will be more or less the same, but about twice as wide.

  29. As Ross states, sharpening to a point is the thing to do but sharpen so the grinding marks run down the length of the taper as opposed to round the taper. It makes a massive difference. I think weldingtipsandtricks did a video on the correct methods. Youre definitely on the right track. Comfortable propping can overcome a lot of issues. Get creative with things around you to prop and make a dry run before you hit the pedal. Propping is NOT cheating! And welding gaps is tricky. Gaps on outside corner joints, and butt welds are particularly sensitive to heat. If you feel it's a

  30. Hmmm, I'm in mixed mode about 4x4 Response. I was involved in the Peak District branch in the very early days, but later decided that I didn't fit. Note the essential difference previous comments, it was me being a square peg that didn't fit in the round holes that were being imposed by the outside organisations wanting to use our services. The principle outside orgaqnisation being the local County Council, who had to follow their own guidelines. That was my local branch; because I was organisationally involved I also had 'access' to the National Forum and the know-it-alls in other areas.

  31. Got a new ignition switch then? Exactly the reason why I walked out many years ago. Was a noble cause but all they seemed to be interested in doing was fundraising and building the coffers with putting minimal stuff back towards training. I'm sure other groups are different but my experience of a few that I've witnessed in operation doesn't seem to vary too much . The rather entertaining fact of the matter was last year when Surrey / Hampshire had a day of snow and everything ground to a halt a friend (who also used to be part of the group) phoned up and asked if I could help

  37. I might add that my daughter has not shown any symptoms to date although she says she's had the sniffles for a couple of weeks. Still, I was and am not prepared to have her go against my advise to stay well clear of trains, shops and and a large capacity concert in London especially as I told them that I would cover any out of pocket expenses if they didn't go - hellfire it was her first trip to London on their own anyway. The young sometimes believe they are invincible but I'm in my 6th decade and have a few issues anyway, I'd rather my own young not take chances with my health 🤬

  38. This weekend saw me doing a "quick" tour to deliver some IBC's to friends and move a Land Rover... IBC's ready for delivery. Dropping 2 IBC's off to Fridaynight, sleeping in the 110 was next. Saturday morning was another 160 kms. to deliver the last IBC and join the Ninety for the next job : What oh what will be loaded ???? YES !!!!!!!! His mother loves him, I'm sure, but the 300 Tdi was not really happy moving 6 tonnes around... Once the IIB FC was unloaded, next was this : All in all some 730 km. in 36 hrs. The 110 never mis
