TB2, he's referring to t-cutting the paintwork.

1991 Gti 16V - Blaze is back on the road since 2008
1990 Gti 8Valve SOLD - looks like it's been scrapped
2002 Mini Cooper S - SOLD - i miss this car

I think the reference is to 'cutting' back the outer layer of oxidised paint to reveal some decent paint underneath. T-Cut is a brand name of a product sold in the UK (and made in Burnley?) which can be used for this process, but is generally low quality.

The process does NOT get its name from the product as infered by MULLEY.

so i stick with what i said
which was nothing of any importance and simply bumping up your post score. TB2 asked for an explanation of what 'cutting' meant, no a reaffirmaion of what was posted in the first thread. Also I didn't complain about what you had said (as it was irrelevant) but the implication that the process is called t-cutting which it is not. Infact the process name i think is 'mopping'.

Vanny since when did you become the forum police? and why are you giving mulley a hard time as of late? T cutting/moping who cares it did the trick and looks great so get of his back and chill out. I use a mop at work as its easier, Jon doesnt have one so he did it by hand but either way the results speak for themselves.

Tim, quite frankly why your starting ANOTHER battle i don't know, but the answer is simple, i'm not picking on Mulley specifically, but since you drove a lot of knowledge away from the forum certain people have stepped up to take a technical advisory role.

No problem with that, there is a gap to fill, but there is no point in posting for the sake of posting, and less point (and high risk) in posting inaccurate, uninformed or out and out wrong information.

One of the reasons the BX is seen as unreliable and expensive to maintain is the myths about the complexity and cost of the hydraulics system. A myth that stemmed from inaccurate, uninformed and wrong information being used to scare monger.

If i come on here and correct someone, then its because i feel they are wrong. That doesn't mean i have an axe to grind or grudge to bare, but that i want to enter into discussion to ensure correct information is passed on. You'll see plenty of examples of grown up discussions in which i have disagreed with someone and not been flamed by you or your fan club, typically resulting in an informed and constructive discussion.

Now, if you think i've done wrong, leave, again, i'm not interested in your petty flame wars!

Bumping up my post score, i've heard it all now, if you knew me then you'd never have even said that.

I dont mind being corrected as it happens, however, your posts on this thread just seem to be a bit ott when all the chap wanted to know was an answer to his query.

I'd presumed that TB2 would know what t-cutting meant.

Thanks for the support Tim, but no need to get involved as i'm not getting worked up over this thread.

Erm, if you don't read it, how do you know it's there?

Oh, and who the hell is np?
Another person who can't be named for reasons of squirrelage?

You know you have a fan club on here, so dont be coy about it.

And I'm sure Mulley has suitably sized bollocks to say something if he so wished.
Indeed, he has, quite rightly and adultly, on occasion in the past.

Vanny was just stating a fact about the accuracy of cutting, and "T-Cut" the product, I'm sure Mulley wasn't reaching for the switchblade over it and it obvioulsye clarified what TB2 querried as he stated as much.

Oh, and someone needs to be the forum police, since it's now all on it's own, with no-one to hold anyone's hand, and has been for a long time.
Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
