Be aware that phosphorus flares are illegal in the UK and usually get confiscated by customs. Choose your time and place first. They burn for five minutes.

Sorry Mook. For the benefit of those not comprehending, I meant that Her Majesty's Customs generally take the phossie flare out when the car is first imported from Japan. From then on it could be stuffed with opium, but as in Mook's case, no-one will pay much further attention to it.
