As a some of you will know I have been searching for a replacement for a little while now, after a disastrous start to April.   s:evil: :evil: s:evil: 

I am pleased to announce that the searching is finally over, so here she is...





Big thanks to Russ (UKtotty) for coming out with us in the pouring rain to check her out and adding that necessary dose of sanity for double checking things.

First job is done, cleaning out the drains!!! Have you still got that picture Russ?

I bought a "Lean Mean Fat Reducing Grilling Machine" to lose weight. I put on five stone. I blame the delicious gravy it makes.

There is one thing I've picked up on. You used the words Russ and sanity in the same sentence. Is that right?  s;-) ;-) s;-)

Don't think I'd actually seen one in the flesh until this weekend, they are quite nice. I saw one at a garden centre on Saturday and flyer'd it. Like every other person I flyer they haven't signed up yet  s:( :( s:(

The miningest drains ever!


The REALLY bad clearance on the wheels which were 40mm over sized!

I don't even want to know what that is coming out of those drains! Urrghh

Dear Lord that look hideous! (the drains!)

I'd just stick some standard wheels on there personally, stick with anthracite or black though

The smell was awful!   s:cry: :cry: s:cry:  
If the smell ever made its way to the occupants, I think I would be clearing up chunks off the dashboard!

Now, I know you know all about that!!   s:lol: :lol: s:lol:    s:lol: :lol: s:lol:    s:lol: :lol: s:lol:

Its not so bad. I was a little unsure, especially about  losing the clips.
I can recommend 2 of you doing it to help with this. One to use the screwdriver and one to get their fingers behind the trim.  :-) :-) :-)
