    Haha cheers CJ, though at this rate (forcast rain here tomorrow when I last looked) it would be dirty again before it got back from Leeds. Though I will no doubt take you up on that offer, you can give me some tips on the details for sure, that and funds dictate I can't at the moment either.
    You might as well get it all done and put away properly, stored ready for winter, if stuff isnt gonna get used. Especially that lovely generator of yours. Really could do with repainting the bottom of my generator frame though, its rusting good.
    I bet you spent a good wad on consumable stuff. I remember reading a long time ago that an owner(s) of a car will spend almost the same value as the car on parts and labour over the lifetime of the car (unless it was a BMW,VAG, Porsche etc product, in which case alot more)

    Blimey, that WAS a full day.

    Reminds me of an old saying...'If you'd stuck a broom up your a**e, you could have swept the floor as well.'
