    Durable electronic vernier caliper

    Seem to be getting through these at a stupid rate due to grinding dust potentially getting in and me spending less than £20 each time. Does anyone know of a set that's good, durable and able to withstand a general workshop environment? Thanks

    Yesterday I changed my loom around, moved a rear earth location (all my lights work perfectly though) But now when I get in my car, the red immobiliser light is on until I put the key in the ignition. And when I do so the clock flashes 0:00 and the radio resets. What could it be?

    The right wheel sticks out a bit more than the left! It's only by about 1mm but we both noticed it. Quite annoying. Swapped the wheels over and its still there so its not the wheels. Used the same stub axles as the one that was provided with the new beam. Stub axle spacers the same. The rear...
