If you are looking for an immobiliser:

It's great, has a transponder so you don't need to dab the dongle every time to need to start the car. Works a treat and Lloyds TSB wouldn't insure me unless I had one fitted.

That's the one!! Just need to decide where to spoil a piece of bx and place that LED...useless really apart from a deterrent point of view..more than half the battle I suppose...?

Have a look at the Argos Electricians kit for a soldering etc.

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/p ... ETOOLS.htm

Comes complete with meter.

The iron is really good value and works well.

Tools are not the best quality, but ideal for all electrical work.

Picked the kit up about 4 months ago for £9.99 – on special

How did you get on with the bushes, Jon ?

I'm up for that job soon, with no press, no freezer, I'm a bit wary of it...

Does it work out much cheaper to replace all the bushes rather than just by a brand new arm with pre-installed bushes? only reason i ask is that i picked up a genuine citroen one for £20.
