  6. Brilliant work!

    I was quite pleased with my carefully hand crafted bits of aluminium, they don't look quite so slick now........

    Look forward to seeing how you get on with fire up :)

  11. Reading this is sometimes like reading a foreign language as I don't understand most of it but I can still appreciate the amount of time, effort and skill that's gone into this, top job mate
