Haha! Amazing what people pick up? To tell you the truth, I'm not sure if it's a Sunbeam, but you could be right. We've been through a few of them. I use it to drop in all the bolts and bits that need to be cleaned in solvent. I've had plastic bowls go brittle and crack with some solvents.

No, I have my own web hosting, so I just upload them to my website and link them.
Even "My Shed" is hosted on my own site.

Another minor update! I was looking into throttle controllers for a while and I must admit that I didn't think they would be very beneficial, but after a bit of research and seeing all the positive comments about them, I decided to give one a try. I've been pleasantly surprised with the results and would recommend one to anyone looking to improve performance and have the ability to customize their throttle response. To me, it's just like having a "Sport Mode" but it also allows me to dampen the throttle response when climbing a steep rocky hill and accidentally stabbing the throttle while going over bumps etc. With the highest setting the car is dynamically transformed and I find that I get a lot of wheel spin, particularly in the wet, but when traveling at speed, it kicks back through the gears and holds them much longer than it normally would. I've had cars tuned that react in a similar way, but without the option of going back and this is certainly much cheaper than getting a tune.
Not sure how it would perform with the diesels, but it's certainly made a difference to the 1Grfe.
