You can't save much on £20 can you Mulley - How much was installation?

Isn't it odd that we seem to be doing the same jobs at about the same time!
I did my arm bushes today on the shell that was once a valver, only I used the sledgehammer approach and a suitably sized socket to fit the bushes, it's the way I've always done them, very good at relieving the tension created by spending eleventy billion hours with the MiG....

Your door stripping game is strong - one of the reasons I bought a shonky 70's house after our 1860's house was the lack of lovely tasteful 60's upgrades covered with layers of old gloss paint - we did however have interior stone cladding (now gone) to deal with.

You clearly are a masochist though as my local reclamation yard strips them for a tenner each - guess where I took ours?

And 60's plumbing :roll: don't go there......

There's another oddity!
I was on the, er, A41 I think heading north towards Chester couple of saturdays back, and for the first time in my 11 years of driving I also reached a set of temp lights with a big sign saying "Convey system in operation ahead", and sure enough for reasons that I simply cannot understand a little van arrives when the lights go green and we all dutifulyy crawl down the road after it.
Since there was temp lights at either end of what turned out to be some resurfacing work on one side of the carriageway, why the hell did it need a convoy car aswell?

H&S gone mad I tells ya!
