Hi Bob, well done again, :clap: the DTIs look spot on once you have give them an overhaul, as Fredbare says plenty people will have sticky DTIs lying about. I am sure your posts will have given people the courage to have a go at fixing them :thumbup:
  Cheers Mick.

A very good informative thread. It should answer most peoples question if they need to dissemble their DTI's for cleaning or repair. I particularly like the Popsicle stick puller that you have shown. I'll be using that one.


Cheers  :beer:
