    bumper repairs

    ok people I would like to know if anyone has repaired splits/cracks in front bumpers successfully using a glue or two pac product. as a local bouncy kick boxer used his head to ram me the other night. the impact folded the bumper upwards causing the plastic corner to split I believe there is plastic welding repair places in the metro area but I am hoping I can repair it at home any thoughts or advice appreciated o and this time the ford won cheers demmo
  7. Not sure if this could create a problem in your ford or not but if the booster draws a lot of power it may be advisable to use the blue feed into a relay first then power out to audio booster so you reduce the overload for whatever the blue wire was designed for. my young son wired up a sound system once and the onboard computer immobilized the vehicle (bmw) thinking it was being hot wired. from memory they ended up direct coupling to battery through a relay which had a low voltage cut out protection. cheers Demmo

    How to find manufacture date of battery

    yes it has a purple recycle sticker with 1806 printed on it so at a guess does that mean manufactured June 2018 ?

    How to find manufacture date of battery

    Thanks for all the replies ok the battery case is gloss black the transfers say it is manufactured by century-Yuasa Queensland. Stamped across top of case says. Made in Australia. The sticker on the side says repco. Sealed battery with 36. But it doesn’t have anything stamped or written to indicate the age of it. Why I would like to know the age is it’s fitted to a camper with duel battery’s . The other battery a century is 2 years old it’s a 24 month warranty so towards end of life. I’m told it’s best to match the batteries in age and cca. So looks like it’s best I replace both before I go a wandering cheers Demmo
  12. Hi all just wondering if anyone can tell me how to find a code/date of manufacture of a repco car battery. I am told that these battery’s are manufactured by century batt. But unlike my century battery I cannot find any stamped letters/no’s. any pointers would be appreciated thanks. Demmo
