Re: What did you do to your Imp today?

Not strictly to the Imp, but rather FOR my Imp. Today, as it was still sunny this morning, I glued 2 pre-prepared OSB boards to the roof damaged by the tree surgeons (read careless bath buns) earlier in the month. They go full width at the rear of the garage by 700 mm depth, primer sealed both sides...

Re: A Californian drying out in South Africa

Couldn't be any worse than the completely krap camera work we get on some of our home grown dramas on TV over here. Inspired (if that's the appropriate term) by the film the Blair Witch Project. Its just plain awful at times and almost unwatchable. Supposed to add realism :evil: Sorry to steal the t...

Re: Clive - Singer Chamois Sport

Nice progress Matt. I've done a couple of refurbs to wooden dashes using pre-glued walnut veneers. It's a great feeling when they turn out as you'd want them !

Keep us informed then. You'll have plenty of time !

Re: Cancelled - Going Dutch 2020

is it worth leaving that money lying idle for a year ? What else would you do with it ? Invest in loo rolls ? You ain't gonna get much interest at present rates are you ? Its dead money as far as I'm concerned so it can stay there ready to make full (or nearly) payment for Going Dutch next May 2021...

Re: Cancelled - Going Dutch 2020

For those who have booked a ferry with Stena Line from Harwich to the Hook of Holland : I've just called them and have amended our booking. However, they cannot do further than 12 months ahead, which means one has to amend to next March and then amend again to the required dates in May or give it a ...

This is true. Perhaps more than one "run" would be required. Top, middle and bottom. If only "Motor rail" still existed.

I only wanted to know who provided the insurance and at what cost. It might help other ACs, nevermind the Imp Club. If its secret, then fine. I'll do some research if it needs to be done, when it needs to be done.
