  1. Maybe stick it In the “How to section” good write up that I don’t think is in that section.
  2. I used the hot water and hairdryer and popped it back out, what I didnt realise is that there is another skin so makes it very difficult to press it out from the rear, I ended up using a screw driver to wedge up in-between the two skins and it worked a treat, the paint is hazed and cracked in a few places and there are two parts where the paint has actually come off but I can touch that back in until I get around to getting it resprayed at a later dat, so chuffed. Will try and post a few pics up of before and after later on.
  3. Has anyone tried the hair dryer or hot water method of getting dents out of a bumper, if so any tips?
  4. My cars just ticked over 200,000 on same clutch, might look at this little trick as wife says clutch is a bit heavy when she occasionally drives it. I have noticed the bite getting higher, so might be worth doing.
  5. I was with the AA that covered me not the car but then they put the premium up from £180 per year to £600 per year, cover now cancelled.
  6. Lacquer will keep the stickers in place and not degrade over time, i sprayed mine up, black with white decals but did it in situ, as others have said any imperfections really wont be obvious when on the car behind the wheel.
  7. I wish i had read this before I bought my Boxster would have saved me a lot of wasted time, great guide for the novice and experienced buyer. Thanks for writing it up
  8. Did you ever get the tool and give it a bash, what was the results? Would be interested to have a go myself.
  9. followng your excellet instructions i swapped out the bulb in about half an hour, big thank you.
