Why don't things just work like they should

Don't disrupt threads on the main boards - get it all out of your system here. Think of it as 'playtime'.

:lol: :lol: :lol: I did ok on that score. I even managed to get a picture if mrs Empi in one of the vw mags a while ago of her sat in the hallway with a tube or autosol polishing the rims of my alloy wheels :cheers: I did let her have a go at masking them up for detailing but had to rip the tape off and do it again myself. Still, you can't have everything I guess :lol:

Update on the phone.......it's now working. Gave it back to my mate who called the provider who was supposed to have unlocked it and swore they had done so but when he went into one on the phone they sent the code again and bingo - up it popped. I suspect they hadn't sent it properly the first time.
Fresh with the success of that I might venture out into the garage tomorrow to see if the front suspension want play to play ball :lol:

Ps, sooty, can you send me a text as my old phone is dead and I can't get any numbers off it :roll:

I like the advert that says "Does what it says on the tin"
I must buy the wrong tins...
I do not get the ones that say...."Sets solid or Goes lumpy or seperates out and will not dry"
But to be fair I do not that type any more I buy the type that does not say that ... Instead I buy the type that has no warnings and then you know it is unspoken that.....
ANY THING CAN HAPPEN ONCE THE LID IS OFF and it often does, so I am not disappointed.

Oh and by the way I showed Mrs type21f the picture of Mrs markp up the tree with the chainsaw ..... and she replied you are always asking me where your tools are... After 40 years I would have thought she would have known where my tools were....she says I am always playing with them...Like i was fondling my favourite toys.
I showed her Mrs empi polishing the wheels and she went and fetched the metal polish and lined up all the brass copper and silver for me to polish and then she would polish my non existent alloy wheels....
