Upgrade today to remove Google ads and support TLF.

Tax was calculated so that in first step 'real car tax' was raffled. In second step, an another tax, so called 'like VAT' (22%) was calculated and added.

Last year EU said that it's illegal to add this 'like VAT', when car importer is private person. So, state paid that 'like VAT' back.

Something positive from EU!

Yep, it's time to take some beer! But must be in house only, it's -20 celsius out there.

Deliriously happy to have just got a Defender 110 once again. Had to sell my last one in 2005 and I have been pining ever since. Even the heater is effective on this one!

Couldn't have picked it up at a better time given the weather!

As usual, I'm a day late but what made me happy yesterday was having a tour around the USF1 shop and seeing they have made real progress.

Excuse me, they're not holes ! They're blanking plugs.

They're black circles, they look like holes! I'm very surprised that you've not taken the opportunity to have them filled in.

A lot of sole searching went into that, eventually I opted for "Option" alternative. If I sell the car the wing is in option and can be fitted in less time than it would take to get off the gagrage wall. Which is about the only way of transporting the thing due to its humungous size. :)

Personally I'd have had them filled and assumed the next owner would have a drill! The car looks stunning with fresh paint still, they're just a bit of an eyesore to me.

Hi Bibs,

i have the same on my deck, i spent a good while chatting with the fibreglass and body work folk at CN's and they couldn't gaurentee that you wouldnt have dimples, unless they had the deck for a long while and kept refilling, rub down, leave and repeat. The price for the labour vs blanking plugs kind of makes it swing heavily for the option route.

If you fance a wing again its 10 mins to put one back on.

Its not a perfect option but a reasonable comprimise.

cheers

Alex

But if you were having the entire deck painted anyway...

The office and all vendors being closed today for 4 days and more or less the next 2 weeks so that the flow of inane and time consuming e-mails has slowed to a trickle. sorcerer.gif

Happy Christmas to all, or as I work for an American company I suppose I should say 'Happy Holidays' which just doesn't sound right!

This made me happy today:

1)being able to see pretty well and open my eyes in the sunlight for the first time in a week and a half!

2)being able to drive for the 2nd time in a week and a half!

3)being able to get off the couch and do something other than listen to movies for the last week and a half!
