I was looking at my car earlier and thought it would be good to rotate the wheels so all the Ford logos face the same way. Has anyone around Hampshire got a jack I can use? I'm willing to travel a few miles.

Cheers

Erm, not to put a downer in this but as soon as you leave the driveway they'll all be out again. Example, when turning the inside wheels rotate less than the outside wheels, so they'll all be out again. Likewise if you loose traction at all up front by booting it one, it'll be out from the backs too. Bad times.

Poor joke, but nice attempt.
BTW, I don't know why they don't design them with weighted bearings behind them so they always stay the right way up.
It would look smart driving down the road with the badges staying still.
