Thanks mate, likewise, it's a pity that we couldn't have stayed longer.Today, I've mostly been addressing the leaking sink in the bathroom, the sink has gone (can't see the point, we only use sites with proper facilities) a mate, who builds kitchens and stuff for Madonna and George Clooney has done all the woodwork, it looks and feels much stronger than when it left the U.S. IMO

I've been replacing all the fittings with stainless, to date I've used over 300 screws, nuts and bolts and I'm about to order another 200!

Today we purchased plastic panels to reline the shabby and worn old walls, very light weight and very good value, that's tomorrow's job, as is, replacing the extremely rusty piano hinge holding the battery compartment door with stainless steel

Saw you this afternoon on the A61 crossing the A38.

I had to abandon the M1 and cut through clay cross :roll:

Water proof vinyl flooring and walling in the bathroom area, under that is a very thin foil and foam membrane

The bike rack should be back from the zinc and powered coating place today

Loads more stainless screws and bolts to replace the rusty old stuff

BBB bike rack frame came back from The sprayers, the quality of finish is outstanding, blasted, Zinca coated and powered coated, the finish is so thick, it feels tactile and super smooth, you just have to keep stroking it.

As was:

Of course all the fittings are now in Stainless
