Posted on Thu, 06 Jul 2017

Thanks everyone. I'm always amazed and very grateful when someone says something nice about something that I can't seem to help doing.

Lovely link between oil,

Posted on Tue, 14 May 2013

Lovely link between oil, water and paint. My dad used to spend cold nights under his cars, self-taught and following Haynes manuals under a lead-lamp in the middle of winter. I followed him that far, but no further. My poor son, denied contact,...
