Re: Paint strip petseal

I've tried cleaning the inside of a standard rusty tank with paint stripper, nuts and bolts and a whole lot of shaking.

Re: EU, in or out?

Cam Moron; Osborne; Izzard; Geldoff; Brand...........you really couldn't make it up could you? Unfortunately people seem to agree with them. Very sad indeed. I'll raise you with Johnson, Patel, Grayling, Le Pen, Trump and the BNP. There's as dinner party you wouldn't want to go to (or perhaps you w...

Re: Does a Lambretta fit in a Vauxhall Combo
