Re: Handbrake gaiter question

Hi mate, thanks for that, that makes sense. I will see if mine is there or missing. If its missing which I think it is I will see ...

Re: Good old days.

Absolutely the good old days. Stoneleigh was a brilliant venue. The car park was every bit as good as the show itself. We didn't realise then just how good the scene was. Fast forward 30 odd years to what we have now - depressing. Yes an amazing place Stoneleigh, cars lined up in the barns and the ...

Re: Replacement Door seals advice

Hi folks, Are Capri Club International mitred door seals any good or are east kent trim better? Any advice and experience would be appreciated. Cheers Mark Hi Mark, I can't say for sure, but I would imagine that CCI get their seals from East Kent anyway. You may have read reports that the new seals...

Yes and build me a house, supply me with hookers and a two week holiday each year in the Bahamas. Thing is I did lose two hairs out of my head and split a nail. Also when I was 6 my Gold fish died.

The second paragraph should read Tonights Bangers and Cash that should make more sense to you :) Right, thanks Andy. That does make more sense.
