Any more news on this meet yet? How many are likely to attend?

Re: Side decal remover

Quick question folks.... I want to remove the decals on my van. They're not in awful condition - in fact, they're not bad, give the age of the vehicle (I'm pretty sure they're original) Do those "Toffee Wheel" attachments last long, or do they wear down quite quickly? I just want to know whether I n...

Re: Painting Steel Bongo Wheels?

Update. Despite the damp weather, I managed to get my wheels done this weekend. A good wire-brushing before painting did remove quite a bit more of the ground-in brake dust and general muck But there was still quite a bit left on the surface, that even the wire brush, and several applications of whe...

Re: Painting Steel Bongo Wheels?

I used Hammerite Smooth spray after wire brushing and it's been on for 5 years now. Cheers for that Jimmo62. Was it a Hammerite specifically made for painting steel, do you know? I've seen a few brands of wheel paint out there, but they don't always state whether they're for Alloy or steel... Come ...

Painting Steel Bongo Wheels?

Hi everyone, Sorry if this has been asked before - but I couldn't see it on here anywhere... My Bongo has the standard Mazda steel wheels - and they're rather filthy looking. I tried some special wheel cleaner spray, and a lot of elbow grease, but it didn't work well at all. Now I know you can get a...

Re: Any Particular Type

I'd be interested to hear what replies you get to this question. I've been intending to get a tow ball fitted to my Bongo (not really for towing - but for protection against being rear-ended, which happened to me last year). Also interested in which types are prone to cause corrosion on the cross-me...

Re: MOT all clear

Glad to hear your Bongo passed the MOT
Mine recently did too - though it did need a bit of work (exhaust + few other bits - nothing too major, thankfully)
