    I enjoyed that John. I miss trackdays but not the weather issues.

    That's pretty amazing, what mixture did you use?

    Ali’s secret sauce formula. 4 x 250ml of Asda’s finest lemon juice and a tablespoon of salt. Used 4 bottles just to fully submerge the caliper. A smear of grease on the caliper bore stopped any reaction on the inner surface.

    Lemon juice is best for descaling your kettle too.

    Can I just point out to all the lemon juicers amongst the group that you can buy a food grade critic acid online for very little. It's much less messy than lemons, and more efficient at that. Plus it's fun to put in people food or drinks. My kilo bag has lasted for years of removing rust off parts and bolts, and cleaning kettles and washing machines for those inclined.

    Yes, Steve's old car.

    Is citric acid better than coke or vinegar?

    As a mixer for rum, I think the order is:
    coke, citric acid, vinegar.

    I've never used vinegar on stuff, but a quick internet search reveals that it's less effective than citric acid in rust removal.
    At around £5 for a kilo of granules delivered it's much cheaper than coke. But I can't answer for cokes effectiveness, it's never in our household.

    Been doing a bit more on the air box with my surfboard mate .

    now its a bit clearer and has some carbon fibre around the open edges to give it more stiffness and have also tweaked the bottom plate design to sink the trumpets in a bit and used Perspex that's a bit more petrol resistant,

    Sounds awesome JB!!! Wish we could safely run open trumpets.

    Just serviced the A4 with a K&N filter I put in 6-8k miles ago and the crud I pulled out of the filter’s folds was really very scary (and sandy/gritty).

    loving your car Jon! I’m sure the camera doesn’t do it justice but it looks like it picks up really well!
