RUNN has been sold to Activa_Mike, he's popping down in a week to drive it off into the sunset. I'm thrilled that it's going to a forum member and hopefully I'll hear about it from time to time.

Today was spent overhauling the suspension on the red one after popping into GSF for a set of spheres. I'm getting quicker at this and had all 6 done in about 90 minutes. The only bits and pieces to finish it off are the lacquer peel on the spoiler along with the slightly indecisive brake pad wear indicator, which genuinely could mean the brake pads need changing I suppose! I haven't checked yet.

I'm even going to start a blog in it's honour. I doubt it will be as interesting as this one mind you. I could always stick some grumbling about the Berlingo in it as well, and the Activa I might or might not be having/have/work on for masochistic purposes..

Indeed it was good to see you Jim didnt really get a chance to chat to you much!, the rally was so well attended that it did seem rather brief encounter with everyone.
But thats the way they should be, I look forward to camping again at the DSM +CXMs although perhaps minus the pickled eggs this year!

Just seen some photos of the rally, looks like I missed a treat.

It has been a while Dave, I've almost forgotten what you look like :lol:

I shan't be around for a couple of days, off into hospital to have a tumour removed from my neck, something I always thought wouldn't really happen to fit and healthy 22 year old. I'll be glad for it to be out rather than sitting there looking all lumpy, unattractive and potentially causing trouble in the future.

I just need to think of a fearless and brave sounding story to tell anyone that asks why I have a scar on my neck :wink:

Blame your Xantia for the Scar! I hope the operation is a success, and wish you a speedy recovery.

Shark attack, tiger wrestling accident, i would go with badger attack personaly as it sounds more plausable but the choice is yours :lol:

Good luck Kev.

Good luck Kev.

Of course the only real option for a neck scar is Vampire attack ;)
