Re: Expansion Bottle Clean

Thanks guys.

With the tea towel I went for the quintessential British deck chair look :) Love the British sea-side.

Expansion Bottle Clean

Just a quick expansion bottle clean, using just washing up liquid, amazing what that stuff takes off. Took a couple of hours, but that includes taking pics and deliberating which flamin tea towel I dare to post up on here! Nice and clean for a couple of years til it's coolant change time again.

Re: Who Remembers?

You're quite right Daz, in that the passing fan or general lover of music may not be aware, or be bothered about the changes made, and that's fine as long as you enjoy it, that's what life is about after all. But the Queen story is such a prominent one as the group is so high profile. And that's the...

Re: Who Remembers?

Thanks Daz :) And yes, it's such a shame that the powers that be decided to make changes, especially when all of the changes add nothing to the film, the Queen/Mercury story is amazing as it is. Why not just do it right? One review I read of the film (after I'd seen it, made a point of not reading a...

In all honesty, I have found them to have a much greater range than is listed.

Re: Who Remembers?

I didn't know all of the detail of the band and the bust ups, break ups. I was more of a Quo fan than Queen. I thought I remembered them having a lean patch in 82/83 period when they weren't firing on all cylinders and the US weren't quite so happy with them, until Radio Gaga / Hammer to Fall etc w...

Bo Rhap become the way that the band referred to the song. And then the fans duly followed suit.

Re: Project Boot Resto - UPDATE 12/9/2018

I've found that a lot of garages really over tighten them. For their own sake I would have thought, they wouldn't want an issue coming back to them. You get a 'feel' for how tight they should be though, I'm sure most on here will know how much to tighten, and most likely just by feel would get it wi...

What a great event, so glad I was able to witness it.

Even in the small pic below we have Bono, McCartney, Mercury and Bowie. It's beyond incredible.

Re: Who Remembers?

Forgot about Sabbath, thanks Andy. What a great concert, a great day, when you look at those legendary names, it can never happen again, incredible. And with Queen, probably the greatest ever live performance by any band in history, in certainly didn't need a new movie to try to add aspects to it th...

Re: Who Remembers?

One of the biggest reformations was Zeppelin. But their set wasn't great, and they all blamed Phil Collins on drums. Much was made of The Who playing as well. But that set had transmission issues and went off air! Many people forget also, that Mercury and May from Queen came back and did another num...

Re: Project Boot Resto - UPDATE 12/9/2018

Much quicker with those Andy, as you can quickly spin it :)

I tend to tighten with the extendable wrench closed, knowing I can easily undo with the wrench extended.

Re: Who Remembers?

Exactly Andy, yes. I mean, why not just do it right? The Queen/Mercury story is a phenomenal one, none of the changes make sense at all. In the film much is made of them 'reforming' for Live Aid, a band member even says how can we pull this off we haven't played together for years. Yet just before L...

Yes, saw it. Really enjoyed it, great story, would watch again. I was surprised at the inaccuracies, there are an awful lot of things wrong. When you are a fan rather than someone who just likes the music, you always find that.... I'm a big fan Andy yes. But the thing is, a lot of the changes would...
