    Let us know, what you have done to your car today ..... you may even have a photo for us? :Smile:

    O.K. - I´m going to start ....

    I changed the air- and pollen filter and finally my darling got 4 new valve caps. Someone had
    stolen all the caps last week :Rant:. But If you like come back again - I´ve got spare parts for 20
    years today :Laughing::

    Those metal valve caps can't be good? Metal ones usually tend to seize, rust on etc

    They don't if you check tyre pressures regularly... :Smile:
    However, if they are shiny, the local kids seem more attracted to them :Whistle:

    The caps are made of nickel plated brass and have a seal at the bottom. I never used other
    caps and never had a corrosion or seizing problem with those, only with long fingers ... :Grin:
    But I think, there often is a corrosion problem with caps made of Aluminium- in contact with
    brass (valves) they cause a battery effect ...
