It's round "6.5" as announced by Ed. The I'ble server code strips punctuation when it converts a title to a URL.

Woot, I won! It was my first instructable, so I think it helped that there were only 2 of us in that category :P I am sporting my tshirt as we speak. It rocks.

In that case, definitely "thank you". Now I've won a bumper sticker, though, it means I have to solve the pitting in the chrome on my bumper...

Autosol works quite well if it's corroded (i've spent a lot of time polishing chrome), use it with and old toothbrush and a rag.

The pits are right through to the steel below - I'm getting rust stains on top of the chrome.

I don't think I can rechrome them myself, and I haven't found out how much it costs to get it done professionally yet.

I may decide to splash out on a pair of stainless bumpers instead.

I think it cost about 20 quid for me and my dad to get one vespa side panel re-chromed, and it takes an awful lot of prep work to get them ready in the first place (bear in mind these are a little smaller than an A3 sheet of paper). We looked into home chroming them, and couldn't find a way of doing it. There is quite expensive chrome paint that really looks like chrome, but I don't know if it would work on pitted metal very well. Stainless is probably the way to go. Maybe try to get to an autojumble? Newark has a massive one every month (I think it's the second sunday of each month).

That's one point in favour of stainless, then...
