forum update

I have updated to the latest PHPBB, and restored the database.
Now I need to find a modern replacement for the old gallery where our images are stored.
Please bear with me, it's a long job, and I have quite a few customers bikes I'm desperate to finish (The day job) .

Re: housing plating wear

Looks fine to me too,Housings are plated with Nikasil; Nikasil is magnetic so if you can stick a magnet to your housing it's OK to use. If a magnet drops off, it's worn through the plating.Housing failures are very rare, and usually catastrophic so very easy to see!Graham.
