Just put a pair of chassis legs on my Split. Now I am back to hospital tomorrow for 4 nights, then 6 weeks in a plaster jacket... No work on the split until march! :cry: You'll be there before me cold or warm! Get one of those patio style infra red heaters - I have 4 in my workshop and they keep my nice and toasty! Good luck with the refit! We have about a foot of snow here in Kent btw!!
