#300303 How Is The Internet Changing Owners Clubs?

Posted by Gary3059 on 28 October 2013 - 04:29 PM

What ever you own a forum specific to that is vital in my opinion,no one knows the ups and downs of ownership more than owners themselves

generic forums still have there place,


i tend to look at it like this


owners forums = your local pub,everyone know everyone

generic forums = the bar you meet your mates on a Friday night,yes its a nice place to be but you limited to who you can talk to

forum apps = well they are just another comunication tool take it or leave it

so having never attended a car meet is it a big problem with the police,I am more into motorbikes myself and attend lots of biker meets and have never been asked to move on

As for online forums i love them,what ever your problem is from vehicles to i've stubbed my big toe there is a answer on line

I belong to about 10 online forums some of which i have been on for  over 10 years

the best thing about forums apart from knowledge is i have met lots of new friends which i believe would not have happened if the internet hadnt arrived

Cheers guys,did dome googling last night and it looks like its good for cleaning paint brushes so dont have to buy any thinners for a while :D

I darnt put it near the mrs after the last time,

She has this habit of everything has to be given a sniff before she uses it,i mixed a solution of caustic soda to remove some anodising and she picked it up and sniffed it made her really ill for 24 hrs :(

just get a can of brake cleaner instead!

thats fair enough mate,i bought a 5 litre can a while back and have just run out but i have a 5 litre tub of Acetone and thought maybe it would work

so if not brake cleaner what other automotive use could it be good for then,just seems a shame having it sat there doing nothing

My mrs scratched the windscreen with her diamomd ring


I bought a 3M cerium oxide kit of Ebay,it came with pads and a backing plate to use in a drill cost around £20

It sort of worked but maybe after 3 hours i got bored :rolleyes:

Clay wont remove the swirls,it just removes bonded contaminates

you will need to machine polish,all is not lost Auto glym super resin polish it wont remove the swirls but does a fine job masking them
