    Random note, if you're putting the nuts back on with it, on alloys, you should just check all of them with a socket wrench by hand. Against alloys, ive found they dont always tighten properly, and ive even driven home with a wobbly wheel cos i didnt realise (may have just been my bad luck though lol)

    TBH mate, you should never tighten a bolt up with a windy gun because you wont knnow weather the bolt is properly on, plus the fact there is a high chance you could completly **** the threads on either nut or bolt!!!!!

    I don't care about getting the bolt on - only off!

    Seeing what I can get cheap off the bay, unless anyone has a nice linky to a reasonably cheap impact gun I can use with my compressor (or an electric one if appropriate)?

    Yeah saw it at the London motor show and talked to the inventor so brought the impact gun just waiting for it to turn up now as i have a task for it, it has 340nm so should be capable of doing a lot of bolts on the car Always start the thread by hand that's the rule when using windy/impact guns
