  1. There is a shop over the Narawat bridgge moving away from the city, 100m on the right hand side of the road. they sell automotuve spray paint with colour charts from the main Jap bike makers.
  2. That wont work either. Many years ago the Shetland Isles said that if Scotland ever became independent from the rest of the UK then it would want independence from Scotland as the oil is theirs and not Scotlands.
  3. Might as well stop at the PTT!
  4. VN Auto just south of Tescos, Hangdong road, opposite side of the road. Never had a problem with them.
  5. Something like this might help but of course it is not cheap
  6. AND take those earbuds out so you can hear!
  7. Used Uber once for the first time a few weeks ago. A very pleasant bloke driving carefully in a virtually new Camry for a third the cost woth the price up front on your phone. No wonder the taxis are worried.
  9. Once you have a TM30 in your passport you can go by yourself to immigration for an update with any subsequent entry. The fine is 800B for you and 800B for the landlord if you are late. In Chiang Mai immigration have threatened many times that they would not accept 90 day reports unless a TM30 was present. A couple were stopped by the Police on the road and fined for not having it a while back. It has gone quiet on that front of late but the threat is still there.
  10. Hi. I Have just had an AC repaired for that very reason. The compressor would not kick in. I tested it and instead of 50uF it was 1uF. This means that the third phase which the capacitor provides which should give 120 degrees phase shift so there is an even rotating magnetic field to drive the compressor motor instead is virtually in phase and the motor is going to stall. The aircon was repaired with it failing again within 24 hours. I asked the ''technician'' why he fitted a 30uf about half the size. The 30uf would not provide the 120 degree shift resulting in reduced torque but being considerably smaller it probably would not handle the current demanded. he said it was for a Mitsubishi Mr. Slim. I would imagine a 9000btu unit...unfortunately this was a Samsung 24000btu. After fitting a comperable capacitor it works fine. Now my Mitsubishi 9000btu Has failed with the same problem. I am hoping it is the same cheap repair.
  11. Here unfortunately, before they even look at a booze bottle, the average driver considers it ok to use the whole road, no matter what traffic is coming, overtake on blind corners, In fact they are unable or perhaps unwilling to go around corners on their own side of the road, the steering seems to be too much for them. I watched one guy outside my village cut a right angled bend that much he crashed into an electricity pole on the other side of the road. Take that mindset and add alcohol! They maybe legally drunk according to a machine but how much of that accident was down to their driving ability or mindset I wonder!
  12. As is common with many western countries....the driver of the vehicle is responsible for the actions of passengers. You can be drubk in a taxi but not offensive/aggressive and throwing objects out the window. The pillions may not have been wearing crash helmets.
  13. Same as US ( except here its 220v 50Hz.) Two flat pin although newer outlets also have a round earth as well. Amorn are also in Hangdong Road Big C. Big C themselves and Tesco also stock adapters.
  14. You can try Amnui Motor Air. My forward camera was fitted by Amnui motor air 2 which is nearly opposite the Bangkok hospital on the 'super' highway.
  15. You can get a scooter down to 1800B per month from one place I know of, maybe someone else is cheaper. Depends on make, model and year and length of rental.
