    Sorry to hear about your mother-in-law, Lee.....but glad to see you back.

    I'm retiring this month and hope to get back onto my Christine build. Full intend to get you that headlight out of my tightly packed crates - haven't forgotten.

    My sympathies go to your family Lee.
    Think outside the box. Use your imagination.

    Thanks guys.
    The funeral is on Wednesday, there are so many restrictions thanks to the virus, a difficult day is going to be made even more difficult by the rules that are being imposed on the service and the venue thanks to this pandemic.


    Geoff, I thought I'd posted about Mel a few months back (and thanks for remembering about the lamp mate).

    About a year ago Mel emailed me on FL to say he'd regretted keeping my money etc.
    He was retiring and had found a post of mine on FL and had been doing some reflecting.

    I put my cards on the table and said fine, I could do with the money being returned as my paintwork needs sorting.

    It was a very cordial "conversation" , a lot of water has gone under the bridge (EG D.Taylor) since my initial encounter with Mel (14 years ago now!).

    Mel didn't return the money but has sent me over a few parts to assist.
    He contacted me again a few weeks ago asking if I needed any more bits.

    Hopefully some spark plug lead holders for a poly 318 are now on their way and should dress the engine much neater.

    So the old goat is still not true to his word. The only reason he is pretending to want to make reparations is because his grand-children have been reading all the negative posts about their lovely old grandad and realising what a crook he really is. A couple of years back one of his offspring posted that the kids were upset to read that lots of people had been robbed by their grandad and had told him not to upset people.

    Still, "a crook is a crook and crooked leopards don't change their dodgy spots".....or something like that. (I'm sure I read that saying in a book of proverbs).
