    I have a bit of old wool carpet riveted into shape (keep it in the boot) that I use to put over the passenger pipe if I’m taking kids etc out for a trip.

    That’s gonna hurt in the morning! Don’t ask how I know. And you may well end up with a scar. A right of passage unfortunately.

    I had Cobras for 13 years without burns, but then a) it was being fixed for most of the time and b) it had underslungs.....

    I've been scared quite a few times though
