Craig we don't snigger at a Melos much, we are too busy rolling about laughing

He seen the light, He'll be fine.

Thanks all for your support, although nothing is mentally wrong with me I know you snigger at the melos but it's a good price for a starter. Although I have a phaeton shell that will soon be on and as the saying goes it's mutton in lambs clothing ( I think that's correct, correct me if I'm wrong)
