Good luck with the test,I'm sure it'll fly through as you certaintly seem to look after it well.
Hi Lag that is great news if i thought for one minute there was any faults they would corrected but there all fine just giving me lots of "e space" in the Espace leaving them in the cupboard and dropping the weight of the car by quite a bit so when iam on my own i can have some crazy time heating the valves and giving it to her large the car that is its a her cheers all the best Donald
