Home Needed – Tiny. White Kitten

 tiny one

(Re-ad because the pic appeared only on the website, not in our daily post)

This white little cutie of 2,5 month needs a loving home. We found her in an empty pool with no chance of getting out there by herself. Because of her poor condition she had to stay with the vet for a week. Back to strength she now is in a foster home, but cannot stay there for long. Please give her a chance and call Maribel on 657 538 612

Services – Head Lamp Conversion

I couldn’t find any headlamp converters anywhere in Spain or France prior to taking a Spanish reg car to the UK 4 years ago. No problem though, they are available when you get off the ferry at motor-spares shops. Halfords will even help you to fit them correctly.
Short term use of headlamp converters should be ok. However, I was travelling France and Spain for a year recently, in a Transit based Motor home with headlamp converters stuck on.

Back to the UK for MOT and on removing said stick-ons the plastic headlamp cover was damaged. Tiny stress type marks, some on the inside of the cover. The MOT tester said it was a borderline pass this time. He’s seen it before where converters have been in place for a long time.

The plastic covers get very hot, especially on full beam and the stuck-on converter acts as an insulator in that area and the heat builds up enough to cause damage. Of course, this doesn’t happen with glass headlamps!

The easy way to remove converters is to switch full beam on and the heat softens the glue so they can be peeled off. Then allow the cover to cool before removing the residual glue, carefully, with WD40. Then wash the WD40 off,

Cheers, Keith, wotsapninatgmaildotcom

We keep looking but can’t find any, even where we get our logs they sold us a bag of what they called “fire starter wood” but it is not really kindling and is very hard work to get the fire going with it.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
