Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

It's a Bosch random orbital but I have a 1/4 sheet domestic sander too. I use Abranet 120 and 80 grit abrasives.

Does Run Fast 351 Eventually!

Refitted the strut between the suspension towers and the anti-roll bar then started sanding. I rigged a rope to keep the vacuum hose clear.

Tappet adjustment query
