    I was doing some genealogy, as I do from time to time, and found another of my grandfathers cousins who died in France, sadly other than his headstone there's no name on a memorial in this country, gone but sadly forgotten.

    Anyone remember John 'Lofty' Wiseman's programme on survival in the 80's?

    Shotgun cleaning

    Quick clean; bore snake pulled through a couple of times. Long clean; Fine bronze brush to loosen debris, woolly mop to shift it out and polish the bore, Fourbytoo with fine gun oil to coat the bore. Wipe the outside; barrels, action etc with fine brushed cotton cloth with clean, fine oil on it. This is pretty much how I've always done it, but I like hearing how others do it.

    Debenhams now!

    With regard to out of town shopping, I agree that this has had an effect on city/town centres, however I drove past a small retail park in a coastal town near me; Homebase closed, MFI closed, etc. These units have not been let again and remain empty, the economic slow down has had far reaching consequences.

    Engineering help!

    Couple of tack welds on the shaft to the worn drive plate??
  8. I let those jokers do a service years ago, they fitted the seal in the fuel filter incorrectly allowing an air seepage to happen, result; wouldn't start the next day. Won't let Kwikfit touch any of my vehicles now.

    Fuel efficient 4x4? Do they exist?

    I picked up a one owner LWB diesel Frontera the other year and did a rebuild on the brakes to get it through it's next MOT. It does 35+mpg and goes like a train.

    Debenhams now!

    Have they moved with the times??? Over the last 10 years we've seen a lot of big names go bust. Think about Blockbuster and Netflix, both involve people paying to watch films, one went bust the other thrived! Don't think I've ever bought anything from Debenhams ever.
