Fantastic! I'll just go and do that now!

On pic 3 it looks as though you folded a tab out from the cover to trap behind the lens. Is that what you did?

No I went with glue. But the tab idea could be an improvement. The plastic on the cap would probably need a touch from a heat gun but it should work. They are cheap enough at quid a time to allow a bit of experimenting

Good to see another aerosol lid mod..........................










Didn't expect them to last, especially with the heat but still in place for over a year...........I couldn't find a black lid with the right diameter in Morrisons, Got some looks whilst measuring and then rapidly scanning nothing but 4 cans of hairspray through the checkout, £1 each biggrin
