Hi all,
Thanks for looking at my post and many thanks to ASW for posting the photo.
I'm emailing and posting the details on as many sites and forums as possible, who knows, if it has been stolen to order then they might get cold feet once they know there are many eyes looking for it.

Cheers

That's awful, you can't have anything unless you can screw it down it seems. Let us know if you get it back.

ASW, any chance you can tell me how to post photos on the forum?

Thanks
