A few questions please.

Firstly, is there anything you can put on a 4x4 to protect it from hitting game, i know bull bars are now illegal, wondered if there was anything else to protect the front of the vehicle?
Secondly, ive a huge big dent in the front of my bonnet...A cock pheasant at 70mph  oh.gif   Im not bothered about dents etc, just as long as the engine is ok. But the paint work has flaked off around the dent, and i dont want it to rust....is there anything you can spray/paint on to protect it to stop it rusting or is a respray the only option?

Thirdly, my loo drains into a cess pit (not a tank) i occassionally get smells in the bathroom which are becoming more and more frequent, i can only guess are coming back from the pit. Is this possible, and how, or is it something else. Is there anything i can do to prevent it?

1. Not really.

2 Temporary fix manufacturers tin of spray paint cheaper than getting the bonnet repaired  or probably cheaper - try and get a bonnet from a scraper you might even get one the same colour.

3. Get a sludge company  to  come and empty out your pit. If the smell persists get a plumber to fit an air vent  or check the one one your system is functioning properly.

if your paint is matalic then spraying with paint will cure nothing really just prolong it ....without laquer (not hair laquer)jOKE

clear laquer is used as a top coat on metalic finish paint work... together with some gloss finishes.......but dont spray over rust ...waisting your time

hope this helps MOLLY if you have not already done it that is

I find brakes quite useful and good headlights if it,s dark

the cesspit..............if it is full, get it emptied......
if it does not need emptying, you need to throw in a carcass of some sort, because the natural enzymes have been destroyed causing the smell.
9 times out of 10, they are destroyed by things lik bleach and other chemicals. throw in roadkill or a dead chicken or two....the smell will go honest........

There is a silent type whistle that you can fit on to you 4x4 bumper, they came over from US about a fiver a piece, last one I bought was from the gargae in Contin, Rosshire, they sold like hot cakes to the locals in the hope that they would hit less deer.

Do a goggle search for a supplier near you.
