Basil, I told you not to use O'Reilly's!

Myhermes are very good value compared to others, Ive used them dozens of times and not had a problem. Sorry to hear of your story, clear incompetence by myhermes. Will I use them again? Yes, because I am Basil.



(Oh, and I wouldnt trust other companies to be any better!)

You clearly won't understand the language but you likely will understand the pictures.

P.S. Warning - you may end up looking all the thread from one end to the other, as it's thread about the owner slowly restoring A200 20v with his own hands to high quality

It's 1,2-Dichloroethane, and he's using nail varnish bottles for prepared glue. He's writing that these bottles should be carefully washed with acetone and they are usually made from plastic that withstands dichloroethane, and therefore useful for storage of prepared glue and also for applying it. Glue preparation takes up approx week because donor plastic has to be dissolved to acceptable thickness - red nail varnish bottle contains glue that is ready, the other two are in half-ready state, I didn't understood what is that liquid in that plastic bottle for.

So you see gents I was taking no chances, but they still got broken. The buyer said the box looked like it had been hit with a hatchet and that both timbers were cracked.
Anything like this or glass should be packaged in a wooden box/crate

Am I right in saying that's a custom autocraft part? Looks to have the same faded tinge to it I've seen before on other lights
