Tip of the day ?

Post by peter freeman » Sat Jul 14, 2018 11:48 am

I have had my Coupe masked up for a long time ( long story ). Today I have been taking the tape off - and as usual had a lot of difficulty doing so especially around the front and rear screens. I had to resort to using cellulose thinners to get the tape remains off. Then I noticed that the thinners cleaned up the silver spreader strips. I was going to buy new ones as they had gone brown but with a bit of rubbing with the thinners they are almost as good as new. Money saved.

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

With four Scimitars I need to save every penny I can - for a Yorkshire man to call me a cheapskate takes some beating though.

Mine are black, they are easier to keep clean - and cheaper :mrgreen:
And yes, I'm from Yorkshire too.
