Re: Vernier gauge

Old school mechanical ones are great. Seek out your local calibration house though if they are really old second hand.

Re: Vernier gauge

Depends on what you are using it for really.

Re: New radio recommendations

Go with what you actually need. If you carry a few dozen CD's about then do that. If you use Spotify on your phone then get a Bluetooth or aux connected item.

What do you have in the dash at the moment?

Re: JK 'extra thick' chrome bumpers

If they are off and brand new. it would be worth putting as many coats of a long lasting wax on as possible/ without feeling silly.

Re: JK 'extra thick' chrome bumpers

(Sorry for the slight hi-jack) I have some original VW chrome bumpers in my loft.

I guess they aren't available from VW any more. Seeing how much some of the traders are asking for repro are they worth anything significant?

Thanks,
