    The V8 Focus

    This car captures better what it looks like normally.

    The V8 Focus

    Not sure on a red black but have you considered a purple? My Leon is Inferi black? 90% of the time mine doesn't look this purple.

    The DIY Thread

    Same, I use with a 9" Wooster Sherlock frame. Nice smooth action, holds the sleeve well, but develops a squeak which is infuriating.

    Bitcoins (and other crypto currencies)

    Any strategy? Just holding as you are, buying any dips that happen? Or are you diversifying into alts as BTC too expensive to get into for similar gains?

    Safe to say I have an extensive ”cars I'd like to own” list which I'll be having a go at before a posh shed is purchased 😅.

    We HODLing for $100k guys? I've got some stuff I want to cash out for (garden room) but if I can get to £50k that's pretty life changing, I'd need another 30% rise for that though.

    Tape and joint - plasterboard ceiling

    Not sure on the difference between Gyproc easi-fill and their joint filler but easi-fill sands really well, it’s very fine. It's all I use for filling now. I use 120 grit for sanding any thicker sections, as it leaves fine scratches, a swipe or two with 240 to finish. If you're using a drywall...

    Home Furniture / Decor Thread

    Yep, we have a 3 door Cotswold wardrobe, similar to above. The doors were warped so I had to triple the amount of magnetic catches on it to close it anywhere near flush. I'll router the hinge fixing points at some point to sort it out. Oh and it weighs a f**king ton, so assemble fairly close to...

    Painting Fresh Plaster

    Leyland trade contract matt is designed specifically for new plaster. That's why it has a chalky finish.

    Self build garage project

    I bought a used Workzone drywall sander on eBay for £30. I thought the dust extraction would be shite but it's actually good, even upside down. (hooked up to a Henry). It's a killer on the shoulders after a while though.

    Power Tool Perverts

    For those having issues with the chucks on the combis, there's a Rohm option available to replace it. Double check it's the right one though as it was a while back I researched replacements /upgrades...

    I certainly hope so, keeping a cheeky eye on R8 V10s for later in the year 😂.

    Mitre saw recommendations

    I bought a cheap single bevel (Evo) and then regretted not getting a sliding double when I came to do skirting. I ended up going for something decent the second time round and the biggest I could ever need for a house project (12"). I bought second hand, so it won't be worth 50p if I get rid of...

    What's your favourite car related YouTube channel?

    Yeah colour is shite, am sure the mini guys will like it. Pearl touches were nice though. I thought it was staying the etch primer at first and they were going to Mr. Bean it 😅.

    Virgin existing customer deals?

    I need to ring them, want to drop the land-line and just keep the 350mb, think I'll just move to the 500mb to save the hassle 😂.

    Well must have been a decent sell wall at $40k, I'd expect a monster one at 50k, it's an important number I think. I'd be considering a decent cash out near there definitely.

    £25k was always my do I take some profit point, if it carries on like this that's only a couple of days away. Decisions, decisions. Or do we stick with Mel?

    What's everyone's thoughts on regulation coming for Bitcoin? I think the institutional backing has given it way more credibility, but still worried any heavy handed regulation could tank the price. Or is there too much money from funds involved now for them to "allow" governments to step in...

    Flying now, am nearing £17k. I was pessimistic it was going to pick up so much this late in the year, but I'll take it. That's £5k in under a month 😲

    Let's see if it's sustained, might be more chances to buy the dip yet to come.

    Make that up £3k in a month, sorry Rich.

    Bitcoins (and other crypto currencies)

    Am up £2k in just under a month. Still not sure $100,000 dollars can be breached, purely from a mindset standpoint. Plenty of previously accurate models predicting anything from $60,000 - $100,000 by end of 2021, I'd certainly be happy with something between those. So...CGT...any creative...

    Is Pistonheads classifieds dying?

    I like the amount of filtering you can do so you can pick up on cars you might not have considered before. Autotrader is too vague for faster cars i.e 0-60 5 secs or less or 8 or less, it's a WIDE range. I get most people don't need/want that.

    It's only because I lost out on the last bull run dipping in and out that I haven't touched it.
