those rear hub nuts can be a bugger glad you got it off i know someone who has to get the grinder out affraid

as for running your own business dude....good luck to you its not that difficult to be honest.....cant give you much advise as my business was a limited company so lots of different tax rules etc etc.....just make sure your paying the tax man and the vat man (if you vat registered) the correct money as the last thing you want is those guys on your back......plus also make sure you are insured correctly.....if i were you i would book an appointment with someone like the business link who could give you loads of free advise plus if they cant help in some areas then they will know someone who can.....good luck....and remember that starting your own business is easy its keeping it going thats the hard bit Wink

maybe look to something like the prince's trust for start up money i knew someone who built a thriving fabrication business from a 5k prince's trust grant.....they were great in helping the business develop.....

Golden rule number 1 is to only spend money when you really have to, most profitable business's and cash rich business's are owned by tight ares's

When I stuck the indicators in my headlights, I just cut up an old rear light cluster and welded a bulb holder to the headlight! Had to beat the headlight bowl in the wing down a bit to stop it from earthing! But it did the job! duies resto - Page 6 Thumbs
If you need it, I got an old rear light if you wanna cut it up and use that?
I would drop it down to you, but...... Wink lol!
