    Has this been done already? emails from companies I've never / barely used explaining that they've got my back throughout this difficult time....for example a car dealership I used over 5 years ago and never again since.

    Also, I think some business are maybe sensing opportunity for increased sales as a result - i.e PPE providers, or are they alerting me about their products as they think I could really use some hearing defenders right now...

    Any recommends for online parts buying ? i want to do a service and brakes with my son on his Mk4 Golf - I've looked at a few like europarts and others, big price differences.

    Also, where there's a few options for the same part, do I need to actually pull the part off the car to identify the right part number? cheers

    I'm another proponent for the slow & steady approach, as boring and long as it seems. Been on and off running over the last few years - normal pattern is this" I'm too fat / unfit, must run to get less fat and more fit - run a lot and lose a bit of weight - get injured and then do no running due to injury" - Last two months, still early days, but have built slowly up to now running 3 x flat 5k per week and a 10k at the weekend, making great progress and nothing (touch wood) hurting too bad.

    I feel your pain on this. There's a Pret i use a few times a week, big double glass doors - no signage for push / pull, and only one of the doors opens (pushes) I think they deliberately change which door is operation at any given time, just for the limited amusement of those inside.

    Nope none, it sticks really well to anything. I painted over old paint, actually I did use a watered down bit for new sections. It dries with a kind of acrylic-like finish, but not shiny.

    I previously used dulux weather shield, then bloke in paint supplier recommedned this, about half the price too and its great.

    I have used bedec "barn paint" on my timber board clad house for a few years. That stuff is great, you can get a decent paint supplier to mix it any colour you like
