Legs switch on stated at 8.30 this morning and got out at 4pm , I sneezed and cock up everthing this morning then when the doctor said don’t laugh we all stated . Also collected my £1 bet from the doctor after he watched my video of the capris and said it made him wake up to what he does so people can lead a life again . But did ask why Andrew had a coffee cup on his bumper . Then I said about your tea towel when he said I think we all need looking at .
Also was talking about Paul’s history lessons articles we have running every week . I did say about nick with the petrol tank that even the nurses could not understand . She said but was there petrol in the tank . So hope all your ears were burning as I did talk about you all and what a great lot you all are .
Even had a ambulance layer on to bring me home so let’s hope that all done till this time nextyear .

Nick how you drive a bus in London I will never know mate .
But nice to be home with the kids and wife . Also will try and get that jet wash in the morning to see how it’s going . :beer:

Here’s a picture coming home .

So here’s the update to the jet washer that has been hanging on the fence with clear coat on !
The verdict. No it’s gone really blemish and dark ? I did use panel wipe before using the clear coat and did spray 3 coats on , but it’s pants . So how the clear coat does not work has me baffled.

Hi Jason,
That's a shame that the washer jet has gone like that after such a short length of time outside. That's clearcoat off the list then......

I've received my buffing wheels and compounds from Moleroda, so I can now use my bench grinder for polishing. I gave the relay cover another quick going over and can't believe the difference it has made. The depth of shine is incredible!
There's no stopping me now.... :D

Yes don’t know why that did not work also I don’t think it was that long outside really .
