    Fizzy drinks shortage

    +1 There are gaps on the shelves of my wholesaler. What they do have is limited to a certain number of cases per customer.

    Mercedes Vito - help!

    Yes, I would think the same.

    Mercedes Vito - help!

    Gordon, I think you've answered your own question, a spring can't do anything if the coils are already touching. I'd agree with Walshie as well. Doesn't look right at all. He hasn't put front springs on the rear has he?

    disco 3 wiper blades

    My garage suggested Valeo blades. They seem quiet and effective.

    Car suffocating in heat

    Munger, It seems to be a really common problem. They mention a solution at around 8 minutes in the clip below. l'm sure extra fans would also help with temperature control, but sticking my head under the bonnet of a 3.0 Capri with an extra fan earlier this week, the heat seemed to be concentrated into the engine bay.

    Sorry, I meant that they make rust prevention products

    A similar product is Dinitrol, might be worth doing a search to find reviews of both. Edit, as above, johnnytheboy beat me to it!

    Grammar and Spelling on Social Media

    Shouldn't that be the adverb, "seriously" ?

    Need help zeroing

    Burris signature zee mounts may be your best option. They have various inserts to move the scope within the mounts.

    Advice, hearing protecters

    I think the Protac are a slightly cheaper range. I have sporttac and Protac shooter (they also do a Protac hunter). The Protac pick up wind noise more than the Sporttac, but they are much better at the range as they stop more noise from large muzzle brakes. Not sure about the Protac hunter,I've never tried a pair.

    Seeland Trouser Recommendations

    Mine did the same, but after a bit longer, a year or so. I decided to bite the bullet, and bought Harkila. Totally different quality level, although the Pro Hunter is heavier and a bit extreme sometimes.

    It was a cold case review by an Australian detective called Colin McLaren, that looked at some theories from around 20-30 years ago. It answered a lot of the questions that the Oliver Stone JFK film failed to answer. Apparently the theory was denied completely by the agent (George Hickey), but it would be a disaster for the Secret Service if he admitted it.

    Mechanics brakes change advice

    Have they redesigned the hubs from the ones on the Mk7? Those need the discs fitting from behind, so the hub needs to come off, a pig of a job if the hubs have had a few years to rust solid!

    Impact wrench

    My friend's garage has used Chicago Pneumatic 734H guns for years. They aren't as powerful as some of the newer guns, but they are very compact and effortless to use. They get a lot of abuse and no maintenance, but last forever.
