  1. The Evora lights looks like it has done some pro plus the Ferrari looks like it has a hangover ?
  2. Mark I believe that is a California and every time I see someone in one and there a few around here I can't help thinking, "knob" I love Ferraris but there is something so Lexus about that model. The lotus looks epic next to it
  3. Dave sorry mate, been cleaning out the garage today, changing bike tyres and putting a weight bench together, now cooking dinner, working from home tomorrow so will pull it out for you then.
  4. Been a while but I should be able to work out what resistor you need. Let me pull mine out tomorrow and have a look. Mine is working perfectly apart from never shows the right time as I isolate the battery when it is parked up. I would think any half decent electronics company could sort that out it's pretty basic stuff. The guys that rebuild period radios would be my starting point. Dan
  5. Dave can have a look tomorrow for you mate if you tell me how to get it out. That resistor won't be too difficult to replace assuming you know the spec, soldering iron, solder and a solder sucker you will be done in 5 mins
  6. Garage is a mess aiming to do that tomorrow as got a day off!!!! Thats my new drill and impact set which for some reason has ended up on the recycling bin thing. Must replace that handle as well on the cupboard which I knocked off two years ago.
  7. Still want a Mk2 RS 2000 but in blue with fishnets but mad money these days
  8. Mate all he is worried about is doing wheelies and getting his phone back. That's it! Oh and me replacing his bike tyre which, oh and forgot about this one and get this, got punctured by a pound coin that dropped out of his pocket! So you haven't been skidding then as this tyre is down to the canvas. No Dad a pound coin! I laughed at that one. John I am never giving any more driving advice! Smash them to pieces I don't care anymore. At least it's not boring in the Elphick household, expensive but not boring ?
  9. Well unrelated, but wife was in town today so came to Canary Wharf so she could get a lift home, now as you know she has a bit of previous with kerbing wheels. Now I park in an underground car park and it's a bit tight. So I was saying look all you have to do is look in the drivers mirror, so you can see your back wheel then you won't smash it to pieces, an excellent piece of live consumer advice I thought, as I scrapped a 6 inch gash down the front spoiler on the opposite kerb. She was pissing herself, it's still going on now I am never gonna hear the end of it. I must have come ou
  10. I don't blame you, it was the comment, " well I will pay it then" that lit the torch as you can imagine. What from the money we alll put away for you!!!!!! Then after all this I said how much is a headset......................Answer £17. ????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
  11. No this one is better, his x box headset broke, so he decided to use his phone instead steamed through his call then data allowance, ignored the text telling him that had happened an the normal £21 was £212.
  12. No yet Mr Walsh watch this space
  13. £212 Vodafone bill from my 12 year old son. Phone gone, severe bollocking given. His bank account raided
  14. Pete, i am trying to guess the trade, so I am guessing glazing? or gigolo ?
  15. these turned up today delivered for free by @Final Edition, cheers Jo, unfortunately I was at work so missed Jo and his copper Esprit wife forgot to tell my boy it was outside, he is not happy.
  16. Pete, I wish that was true, we are a finishing trade which means you are at the end of the line getting paid. I kind of wish I was a hoarding contractor because you get paid at the start of the job when there is money in the job. It works like this and Mr K will back me up on this (again) first 10 application for payments get paid but any extras don't, you take the money because you have to due to cash flow, then you get to application 11 and they don't pay that because they have run out of money. So they say we will put it on the temp supplies on the next job, and it goes on. Be mindful
  17. It took me years to get the team together I have been through so many especially apprentices. I now do open book with the subbies, we agree my margin any profit over and above that gets split 50/50. I work on you you make me money, you make money. I have tried every other way and it doesn't work. Only my opinion mate
  18. I am very lucky, I rarely get on the tools these days but love it when I do, I don't know about you but I suffer with my hands cramping up these days. The problem is getting some decent young blood who can be arsed to get up and get stuck in. After half my head fell off I got rid of all the shit and have a few decent teams to do it, they stay because no matter what they get paid on time very month before anyone else including me. We should maybe change this to the Dan and Barry thread on the world of sparks in 2017
  19. Love a bit of SY nice and easy to dress, honestly mate I would love doing a week on that job nice and clear site tube, tray and trunking , lovely. I am unfortunately doing a job for one of the banks ( NDA signed so can't name them) on the tightest programme ever, priced it to lose it then it came in. Haven't had a day off for 4 weeks got another 6 weeks to go and I am off on holiday first couple of weeks Aug so hoping the lads keep on top of it. There is chap there who always says about the programme, " well let's work backwards" I am like it really doesn't matter what way you work it w
  20. That mate looks like a dream job. 200m on your own is good going it even looks plumb ?. Assuming you got a bundle of traywork and SWA's to pull in. Make sure the tie wraps are evenly spaced or I am going to be on your case !
  21. Top man, if you want to Pm me your bank details I will BACS it over to you! I don't have PayPal mate.
