Where can I get Q heat-resistant exhaust paint?
After a few years of mudplugging I need to respray the exhaust of my Honda XL250. What is the best black exhaust paint out there, and where can I get it? David Paxton, email
Answered by Tony Greenslade, A Stinkwheels We make exhausts and restore loads of trail bikes and we swear by spray cans of Würth Lacquer Spray Matt. Some people suggest BBQ paint, but that comes out a dull matt, whereas the Würth dries to a lovely satin finish and lasts too – it’s a product that really does the job for you. All you need to do is rub the exhaust down and set to. It goes on so well you feel like a professional sprayer!
Würth have seven pick-up stores around the country, or you can get it online by signing up for a trade account at Würth, either a 30-day invoicing account or a credit card account where you pay upfront for the goods. The cost is £5.40 for a 400ml can that will easily do your pipe several times. The reference is: Paint spray, nitro-alkydal quality, matt
There is a time limit to A lodge the appeal of 21 days from the decision of the court. To succeed you will need to show that the judge was plainly wrong in law or fact (and this had a bearing or the result) or erred seriously in his judgment – in other words no reasonable judge would have found as he did. This is called “Wednesbury unreasonableness”.
The most sensible approach would be for your barrister to write a short opinion on the prospects of a successful appeal and ask your legal expenses insurer to fund it. They may not due to proportionality (costs versus benefit to be derived). If the insurer does not agree to fund it then your other option is to pay privately. Again you may feel proportionality will rule this option out. I can easily imagine that an appeal could cost you £10,000 in legal fees although the precise amount will depend on the amount of time spent as in a case like this, lawyers would charge at an hourly rate rather than work on a fixed fee basis.
It’s worth looking at Würth…
