I now know how to buy them and I did buy more than 1 :)

I am considering how to put them in the store without exposing me (and the customers) to risk.

The key issue is the long lead time. Anyone wanting one may have to pay and then wait 12 weeks. The price could vary due to exchange rates and import duty (this could add a lot if they are stopped).

During the 12 week wait, a cheap Chinese copy could be developed and the customer might lose interest. Mine are expensive as they are Suzuki parts and come through the retail chain - £510 before UK import duties at the moment. But at least there is a pathway to getting them.

Today I made a mini awning for the rear door. All from off cuts left over from my big awning.

Awning C-section stuck in place with 3M double sided tape.


Purposely left a gap, then stuck the longer piece in place.


Some Tarp Clips on the edge to hold in place and cord looped under the door handle.


Just one pole needed


If there is nowhere to get a peg in the ground for the guy line, I could use it like this. It's not in the way if sat on the edge of the boot.

Only ever the best for my Dreadnaught. To be fair the bosch that's been replaced was significantly lower cca like 120a less and less ah too. Really springs off the key now.

Managed to break my Gen4 today. Trying to replace all the brake lines and didn't use a flare nut spanner so chewed the fittings up badly. Having problems bleeding the system too. Sigh.

oh no! That's a relatively simple thing for a garage to rectify if you don't have success.
