Good lad. Glad to hear that buddy. You'll have to see a wee bit more of this wee place some time.

Now, get to your scratcher. Long week ahead!

Going to do some more on it today......decontamination, de tar and begin the polishing process. Doesnt need any correction at all from what i can see so just a polish and wax.

There is however, a major problem. I tried to use the CD player for the first time. There is a CD stuck in it, although thats not the major issue. Nor is the fact that accordig to my old boss, BMW want two days two fix.

The major issue? Its a Phil Collins CD..............
