It's all in jest Paul :-D I know the Aussie character well, having lived there... It's rubbed off on me a bit too :lol: :lol: Top people, every one of them

As a result I know there is no offence that need be taken at all... I'm sure you can get Adam back with some reference to convicts somewhere soon :wink:

Aussies are top people, every one of them - despite being convicts...

I meant the beady-eyed figure peering over the fence, looking to see if Paul's home.

It may be fair to exclude the chap who I caught sifting through my plumbing scrap pile yesterday. He won't be back anytime soon. :twisted:

Umm, yes, well... There's always one bad apple in a barrel... Exceptions that prove rules and so on...

So what did you do to him to ensure he'll never come back? Set him spannering the 605?

Well, I shall post this on Club XM fourm too, but some FCF members dont go there..

My 24v XM is GROUNDED.. and not going any where soon unfortunally... This is because today I have found this lot:

Nearside Subframe mount.. Not holed but a little weak...
Image

Offside Subframe mount - infact its holed on the side facing the front...
Image

Offside subframe mount again..
Image

Offside chassis rail, inboard of the cill... Cills ARE actually solid.
Image

Image


So with that lot, Im afraid X rally is not on her list. Im gonna aim for CXM instead, or possibly ICCR if I can get her done intime.

Paul :( :cry:

Sorry to hear that Paul, however it will be worth it in the end I'm sure!

The Xantia's still got an X in it, so no excuse for the X Rally...! :wink: :wink:
