Firstly I'd like to make an apology to anyone who's tried to contact me over the past 6 or so months - either via pm on here or email. I haven't logged on since the Spring and I do tend to inadvertently miss quite a lot of emails due to the combination of a poor internet service generally down here in South Wales and the rubbish webmail service I get from TalkTalk. In short, I haven't blanked anyone on purpose, but apologies all the same .

The reason I haven't been about is that in the early Summer we had a death of a very close family member and what followed for me (and others in my family) was a prolonged period of depression and unexpected emotional 'fall-out' from everything that's gone on in the past few years. I'd stop short of saying I'd had a 'breakdown', but I've just not been a good place mentally for the past few months. Anyway, I think I'm past that now and looking forward to 2019 which I hope will be a better year.

Such is the periodic turnaround of membership on forums, many reading this might be thinking something along the lines of "So what, I don't really know who this guy is, apart from this garage thread?" Which is fair enough There was, however, a time when everyone on the site knew me - members, traders, pro detailers etc. As for several years I was a senior Admin and overall Site Manager on here, but if you've only been here since 2012 you'll not know that.

So, I'd like to end by wishing everyone on DW - whether I know you or not - a very Merry Christmas and all the best wishes for the New Year. I'll be back contributing in 2019.

Cheers
Viper

Welcome back Viper

Bereavement is never an easy time but it’s more important to take care of yourself and those around you

Looking forward to more of your posts in the future and all the best for 2019

Sadly I think I'm about to loose another Uncle in the next day or so. We weren't that close but it's still a sad time.

But upwards and onwards for 2019.

Not being doing much in the garage or to the cars lately (but that will change big time in the coming new year ).

Still, I did buy some new wheels for the restomod XR2 a couple of months ago and although I haven't decided on the brand or exact size for the tyres I want yet, as I've gone a fair bit wider than stock, especially at the rear with 8x15s, I couldn't resist getting it up on the axle stands for a little trial fit







And also finally got around to insulating the roller shutter door which has made a noticable difference now we're in Winter.



Cheers
Viper

Welcome back Viper, and sincerest condolences. I didn’t know you personally, but do recognise the handle.

All be best for 2019 - that’s a lovely wee xr2 you have there.

Cheers
