What does the OS hive-mind recommend for removing a shitload of tar from alloys/lower door sections that won't root the paint?  Road works crew went overboard on a couple of km yesterday, laying down a good 75mm of extra chip above the tarred surface which has left me with a few extra kg of wheel weights and the black shitty mess everywhere.

I've had good results with the CRC bug and tar remover

Crc 556 works too I think? 

 

Years ago I had a mint r32 gtst coupe

I went though some concrete splashes that there was no sign for 

When I washed the car a week later I discovered that it wasn't mud 

 

That really ripped my undies  

 

That car was a magnet for damage

So I have an 80w solar panel, a suitable solar controller and various batteries, ie a smallish sealed gel type and old car batteries.

I am thinking of buying a thermoelectric cooler to keep my beersies cold while camping.

I can set the cooler to run off this sort of setup i guess, but I'm wondering about adding functionality by replacing the battery with a decent jump pack, then it will be charged all the time, will run the cooler but could be used as a jump pack.

Is this a dumb idea?

You know the jump pack is an expensive plastic box with some leads coming out the top and a sealed agm battery inside yeah? 

 

Yea I guess when you put it like that. I had yet to make the logical connection that I could use a start battery as a......    jump battery.

Thank you.

received_659263838823561.jpeg.3f12909d807b7099cf530dc89b9da7d1.jpegEnded up with this. 50x100 welded onto the channel to hold the coupling and jockey wheel. Plated underneath with some 6mm under the join. 

Will run some 25x25 rhs underneath as a brace right up to under the coupling. Should stiffen it right up.

Electrical question.

 if I'm using fused relays, do I need to run circuits through a fuse box first? Would prefer this for simplicity. 

 

Or is it better to use regular relays and a separate fuse box? 

Will use relays for fuel pump/fans/ignition box /etc
