  1. I see this quite often, people 'red oxiding' the chassis, and leaving it, or covering with underseal. It is a primer, fundamentally it needs proper *paint* on top of it before you add anything like underseal/waxoyl. Widely and cheaply available chassis black is fine for this.
  2. Yup, similar experience here little dumper , single cylinder Lister? engine, big flywheel, and one hump and off it went.
  3. If you've never seen 'flight of the pheonix', those cartridges are a pivotal moment https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Flight_of_the_Phoenix_(1965_film)
  4. Ta, I have my moments, rarely, but I do.
  5. Going a bit wild here... Cheap double-din car radio, e.g.: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/7-LCD-Car-Stereo-Double-Din-Full-Touch-Screen-Radio-Audio-MP5-Player-FM-USB-AUX/373062679428?hash=item56dc44bb84:g:0AEAAOSwiOxeyOQD Gets you FM radio for when you want it, and any content off your phone or SD card when you don't, hands free calling so you can answer the phone when your hands are covered in schmoo, 4x45W output, a remote control, RCA out if you want to connect to an external amp. Some cheap speakers, fitted into your walls (true infinite baffle, almost...): https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-Cheap-Budget-700-Watt-6-x-9-Inch-Car-speakers-4-Way-pair-350-Watt-Each/142354731945?epid=7019561990&hash=item212500d3a9%3Ag%3AYEEAAOSwSypY95C8&LH_ItemCondition=1000 Combine with an old PC PSU for the 12V supply and you are away. Stereo was the first one I came across, there are likely better ones out there.
  6. Yep, agreed, get yourself some new bolts on order.
  7. Yeah, with any potentially damp building (i.e. not heated) it eventually gets to it.
  8. I've always found hardboard ends up warping badly, even with lots of nails in it.
  9. Bank holiday tomorrow, Ralph ....
  10. https://www.extremetech.com/extreme/259042-bose-sells-off-revolutionary-electromagnetic-suspension Already been done, with just visual sensors
  11. In parallel, yes, that would work, in series, no.
  12. Yep, agreed, but when asking for a regular indicator or reversing lamp bulb, for a car, they are always denoted 382. Using 382 as the search is likely to get you better results for automotive LEDs imho.l, as it will find you equivalents.
  13. This 1000 lumen, which is about the same as a regular headlamp bulb: https://www.amazon.co.uk/CICMOD-lumens-Chipsets-Signal-Reverse/dp/B01LCN5Z0I
