As above, a smear of copper grease on the mating surfaces. I've been caught out with sticking BMW wheels in the past.

Re: Spotted at Center Parcs Whinfell D5

Haha just returned from a brilliant weekend :D

Must throw a bucket over it at some point!

Haha thanks both. I thought it quite cool :mrgreen:

Paul it's very discreet in Sophisto, which is a quality i like for a daily (under the radar)
