My ACU licence arrived about a week ago and I”m just waiting for Straightliners to release the 2019 dates. They.ll be at the usual venues but apparently there’s also some new venues for 2019 too 👍👍
Stay tuned..............

Trying to sort out my loom and solder things. Anyone got any tips on soldering wire to wire. I keep ending up with F@cking huge blobs of solder. I burnt my fingers three times last night too :)
Stay tuned..............

when I solder wires together, flux them, tin both bits first, then more flux, hold them together and heat up with the soldering iron and they should join, add a little flux cored solder at the joining stage to help them flow, works for me, good luck.
