Solar PIR LED lights for the patio. The last lot have lasted 4 years but have started to fail.

Usually the waterproofing has a lot to be desired and sooner or later the wet gets in and then it's down hill.

Yup ... you want to try using anything like that in our part of the world (West Central Scotland, at the southern end of the highlands). Were lucky to get 2 seasons out of such things, and I say season deliberately. They just dont work at all in the winter, its too dark.

Re: What have you just bought?

A load of Dodo Juice stuff for the car so wax, polish, sealant, tyre shine, interior protector etc.

I'd always been a fan of Autoglym until I found out recently that it doesn't protect too well from bird poo and given that my parking space is near some powerlines I'm getting the odd direct hit.

Dodo Juice to the rescue

You could slum it a bit like we did tonight with some yummy vegan junk good from Doner Summer.
Just been - outstanding meal, excellent service, would go again.

Not quite the same level as Man Behind The Curtain, but not far below.

(not inexpensive, but worth it).

I too was an avid Autoglymer until I discovered Meguiar's products. incredibly good stuff for paintwork at least. Still going through my leftover Autoglym products like the tyre shine, wheel cleaner and interior cleaners and so on.

Bilt and Hamber for clay bar is superb as well. You don't need a rapid detailer solution as lubricant (which breaks down the clay bar very quickly). you just use water.
