Thanks Paul. I want to put a roof lining in my Land Rover hard top.

Changed the transmission oil on the Disco for the second time this morning. The first time was oil and filter, whereas this time was oil only. As you only get about 70% of the oil out of an auto box when you drain it, doing it twice with a couple of hundred miles in between gets more of the old stuff out.
I'm also looking at getting another oil cooler so I can put 2 in series as autoboxes tend to suffer from overheating when you are towing. When I do this I will also install a remote temperature gauge so I can see the gearbox temperature.

I used Evostick contact adhesive spray - red & white can. Great nozzle for even but wide spray pattern.

I did this to Daisy over 10 years ago and now want to remove the foam (in my case), not too much of a problem but how do I remove the glue and NOT the paint on the roof?
The solvent for Evostick doesn't touch it!
Ideas please???

Hi Websnail - are you sure you are trying to remove Evostick adhesive? I have always used the solvent and it has worked really well. The only other thing that I have used is Nitromors Craftsman - I don't know if you can still get it but it was very good for removing loads of different substances. Have to be careful though as its lethal stuff Smile

I thought it was, haven't found the old tin though.
Might have to remove the roof and roll up my sleeves to get tough with it but that probably would kill the paint and I'd like to keep it original if poss.
Bet I have to repaint it though.
Not the first time in life I've done something and regretted it later Confused Very Happy

Yes, but itís expensive as it uses a courier. The company have their own transfers between branches so Iím using one from their depot in Yorkshire where the rack is to their Gloucester depot where I can collect. And itís free if I use theirs. Smile

It got a puncture. At least, when I we to use it for work, it had a flat tyre, presumably picked up when I last used it around ten days ago. Iíll see if I can get ATS to repair the puncture on Saturday morning. Typically, I was going to use it to collect the roof rack today as I had a call from the Gloucester depot to say itís arrived...
