Re: what are you doing ?

It's stupid Ali, I completely understand your anger about it. Our site has been informed we are 'essential' - because we supply the m.o.d. with kit or do repairs.

Re: what are you doing ?

To my mind all but the most essential work should stop. You can’t use a drill that is one day out of PAT test but it appears to be fin...

Re: Resto-mod cars.

They’ve been doing that for a good few years. Makes a lot of sense if you are going to use it as a daily driver. I like an original classic as much as the next man though. Check out some of Dave Kindig’s work, some of the best I’ve ever seen- https://www.kindigit.com/gallery/ Indeed, I watch the TV...

Re: Corona Virus Lock Down 'Rant' Thread.

Seen a post that all National Grid jobs are being shut down, guess all the REC’s will follow suit. Probably a good thing, I don’t really want to be on site with people from various parts of the country just now.

Re: General health matters.
