I want to do it before hand May/June time. Haven't sprayed in years. Going to get the 2.0 moted this week so I can start stripping the 2.8
Would like to look into a winch if its at all possible. That's my job :)

If you want to drink you can snuggle between me and rob, though after copious amounts of zubrowka and shiny we can't promise you'll leave with your dignity

We had a great weekend as ever, can't wait for us all to get together again soon, we will have to get around to doing one down here, although with limited room won't be a lot of spannering going on, Rob you can't blame my vodka, I think it must have been Ian's attempt lol although I'm sure you will be forgiven for the dodgy ness of your stomach :), we will have to get some laning in this summer with lots of stops for the twins to stretch their legs
