    Wall mounted PMC, think it's called Wafer is probably pretty good. Quite expensive though.

    Had this happen on my BMW. Just needed the high amp cable to be unbolted and then tightened. I did remove it and clean it properly afterwards but those connections do need to be conducting well.

    Speakers above heads always seem to create a lot more room reverb in my experience. I've never heard a ceiling system with the volume up though. The drivers never seem to be large enough to deliver bass but maybe the large cavity makes up for that.

    I have used TLC for this kind of thing. Fitted one of these in our garden years ago, it's been working. Handy to be able to light 2 different areas. They do a single head one which is cheaper.

    Why on earth is it stored in a place where your wife has access. You only have yourself to blame :)

    The colour reminds me of Faithfull who make surprisingly good budget tools with little or no frills.

    I had a compressor replaced on a Mercedes. An independent did it for around £400 including parts. Mercedes quoted stupid money by comparison.

    B-I-N and Cover Stain are slightly different products. They are both oil based so you need thinners to clean the brush. B-I-N is more often used for sealing wood, I don't use it much but it's a lot thinner than Cover Stain and needs cleaning with meths if my memory serves.

    Cover Stain appeared after 123 and B-I-N had been around for a while. I had a lot of success spraying Cover Stain and matching existing ceilings, they make a spray can that sprays vertically but the overspray is very fine so anything in the room needs covering to protect it. That's why I'm reluctant to recommend it. Brushing 2 coats on the stain and feathering at the edges or rolling and feathering with the roller if you can manage often works quite well.

    I would guess Cover Stain is around British standard white, rather than British standard brilliant white.

    I have and still do recommend it. Just on the patch and a little area around. Sometimes you can feather it into the existing ceiling, it just depends on lighting and how white the ceiling is. Otherwise you then go over the whole ceiling with emulsion.

    If you want to do the job really well you wash it with sugar soap first, I use a squeegee mop for that.

    Are you kidding me, you spend half the thread convincing me it will pass and then argue against it being needed!

    For the record I'm the kind of person who used a TZR250 to commute in Central London and I had the time of my life running rings around bigger bikes all day long.

    In this day and age though you're right. There are better options for commuting.
