    No, he got me on the Thatchers and now it's my go to drink. I don't have many opportunities in my job, but as it's a week off for me I'm indulging. I had a couple last night at a party too. It was more than a couple though :oops:

  3. Just had mine done by an old pro, he did what they’re telling you and brought the whole screen in fairly evenly but mostly top centre ish first. He used window cleaner
    ‘Nil Glass’ as a lubricant and that’s readily available from B&Q.

    Going to have another go in a while. Vaseline has been suggested as lubricant. Any thoughts on using Vaseline anyone?

    Barry Haynes you need not reply thank you!

    @SweeneyTodd and @3901mick

    Thank you both, between both of your advice and a bit of Vaseline it went in in ten minutes a piece of cake :thumbsup:

    Used one at the top and one at the bottom to hold it in place at first. Put it in from the top and worked the chord down to the bottom corners then moved both straps to the bottom and pulled the chord in the rest of the way. I then bashed the bottom slightly and she was in. I used Vaseline as a lubricant as you do.

  6. That looks ace Malc. I would however maybe try and clean some of the lube out from the rubber just in case a decent bump makes him jump back out again.
