Re: new "Sponsors: Adverts and Announcements" section

I get the same, maybe this new section can only be read by those who sponsor a banner and you have to do that before you can read the guidelines on posting there advertising to other banner sponsors only.

Re: Coat of Plates..uh...plates

if you are able: buy some sheet steel, cut, drill, file and shape it. most towns have a steel stock holder, unless you have suitable tools it will take time with DIY type of tools rather than proffesional stuff.

Re: Seeking advice on finding and joining a group

that Tomsk may contain more than just traces of port but he is right, find a group that you are happy with and that are happy with you, find out what is right for who you portray in the group and they will help you get the right kit first time instead of wasting your money on the 'jubbly pish'

Re: Tewkesbury

£20 is a rip off to park for a day, wonder if they are charging the Mops that much too, I cant see them charging shoppers in the town that much so it may be better just to find another place to park the second vehicle uncle bulgie instead of the proper car park, ( it may be safer too )
