Need to burn off new metalwork to remove contaminants anyway.

I normally use a clay bar to get rid of contaminants but probably no use on this occasion !

Probably like burning off your contaminants wouldn't be any use either ;) now if it was a bmw we might get a few volunteers to burn it off ;)

Looking forward to it! I'll try to remember to bring my hot air gun for lighting the barbie. It gets the thing ready much quicker.

I have just spent £130 + getting all the supplies for tomorrow which includes:

Tea
Coffee
Milk
Sugar
Biscuits
Cakes
Burgers
Sausages
Burger Buns
Finger Rolls
Red Sauce
Brown Sauce
Onions
Cheese Slices
BBQ Briquettes and Charcoal
Firelighters and matches

With approx 30 cars expected and no doubt a few who will have changed plans who might not make it, i am looking for £5 each to get my money back, for that you will get:

Unlimited supply of tea/coffee
Biscuits/Cakes
Sausage bap/hot dog ( aimed at breakfast/ morning )
Burgers/ Cheesburgers/with or without onions ( aimed at lunch/ early afternoon )

There are more than enough sausages/ burgers so the very hungry will no doubt get seconds if you want them

There will be the usual honesty box on the table for your contributions and should there be any surplus it will first be given towards fuel for the guys who bring the gennies, and secondly donated to a good cause, there will be no profit element at all for me I can assure you.

Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow, latest weather forecast is for some fog early morning about 9am followed by clear and sunny spells all day and no rain !

Who needs a BBQ now with all this extra energy, not to mention all the hot air coming from the regulars ! ( yes that includes me )

Blow torch isn't as good, I tried it before the hot air gun. See, the flame is burned gases (no oxygen left) where a hot air gun is air. Think of the way a blacksmiths forge works with the bellows.
