    Windscreen install.

    Make sure the rubber is clean, dry and warm(ish). Use any if the sealants mentioned above and you will be fine. Once Chris sees this, he'll say no need for the sealant. But this is about the only time I have not listened to his experienced advice. Why? Because I have had 4 windscreen changes...

    2018 MOT passed; but not without the spanners.

    If I do that it will be to park them up and not use them, after Hungary joined EU and lost import duties on cars they introduced a registration tax of the same amount. Also if they are in Hungary, basically I will use them max 2/3 months a year....sad state of affairs....
