[Dude, you were there in spirit, if you don't want a T-shirt at lease accept this banana on me you can wear it wherever you want
[/QUOTE]
Alex, be sure I was there in spirit -as I think many were - had home stuff allowed I'd have loved to made the trip as a paying ballast for someone - although had 2nd thoughts in hindsight. Would never of done that trip in those conditions in my RC5.3!

I won't wear the banana - questions may be asked , but I hope others who respect the achievement of that trip in those conditions - and the learnings from it for us lesser mortals - may also help the cause by showing their appreciation by a donation.

They're new and unused but are a different shade of grey to the existing V00038 parts I've already put on my tubes, but they may well be good for your project?
Thank you Barrowboy, the handles have arrived

I'd offer you some hours in the future if you need someone to rub anything down or polish stuff...... Can't do this first weekend as I'm running The Great South Run.

I found this, I was going to put on my rib, but couldn't find anywhere to mount it. It's yours if you need it, if not I'll put it up for sale and donate what I get for it.

Keep up the good work fella.
Thank you Wibs, the Brand New Compass has arrived

Been looking through the posts, looking like a good little project, you know I'm up for some of it as agreed but was thinking, I've got the big boat coming back from France so will be working off site, this means apart from my little task force winter project there won't be anything in my workshop, if you run out of space you can use my facilities
