Ok, oil check, coolant check, tyre pressures grrr!!!

Ready for tomorrows Epsom run, checked oil, checked coolant, checked brake, steering and washer levels, checked wheel nuts,.... now tyre pressures....cant get the valve caps off, my lovely missus bought me some alfa crested metal ones, firmly rusted in place!!, they were fine 2 weeks ago, mustv'e been the salt, tried everything, wd40 etc, ended up going to tyre fitters, they got em off with some needle nose grips (almost bought some last week), anyway if you have em fitted check they'll come off and lightly grease the threads for future use, binned mine (don't tell the missus).

I have had them for years, as you say, a light coating of copper grease is all thats needed.
