I had that a few weeks back, I couldn't view any images (including my own) that were uploaded using Postimages. I think it may have been a problem with my ISP's servers blocking them. In the end it all came good and everything was back to normal.

Thanks Andrew. There’s a few you posted recently that I couldn’t view, it maybe my phone or a server issue as you mentioned. Hope it will sort itself out. Want to post up some pictures myself using post image, I’ll try tomorrow & hope it works.
Cheers, Rob

Took the covers off yesterday and gave the car a little air and a detail spray.
Checked tyre pressures and one had dropped 15psi in 3 months, so took it off and up to local tyre fitters to sort. Apparently the valve had some crud around it from the refurb, so they cleaned replaced and balanced and didn't charge me :D Nice to know there are some good people around.

Still not put the dash cover on yet, will wait until April 1st now when I tax it :) Only 3 months to go :drive:

Yep there are still some good people around Andy and every now and again, when you bump into them, it restores your faith again.

Glad all sorted on the car.

Thanks chaps :cheers:

Considering the car was polished with Autoglym Resin and the trim with Autoglym Bumper & Trim Gel in October, it then sat in the garage under sheets until March, and I've only used Britemax Spray and Shine since it's done pretty well. (Other products are available) :)

Goes to show how good these products are!

Rather than my poor attempts with a mobile phone above, here's one taken by our resident club photographer, giving a better idea of the shine :)

Very nice indeed - from all angles!
That's a nice little trophy to win too, has it got pride of place on your mantelpiece or is it in the man cave?

Thanks Andrew :cheers:

As you know the difference a good camera makes.

The trophy is on the unit in the lounge with the certificate :D I don't want to jump the gun and buy a display cabinet just yet :)

Also got a mug, and a litre of 5W 30 engine oil that will do nicely in the Focus.

Got a local 2 day event this weekend, so watch this space :lol:

Thanks it is very clean.

I know of 6 Capris in a 20 mile radius of me.
