haha

you lot kill me :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


The good news is all the dirty work is done and Gerry is back where is belongs and Burt is next to him .... feel so much better knowing Gerry is back in his OG cave ....

So things have moved on well and bert is off to the Trimmers on Monday .... Claire said she would happily have done Burt but I know how stressed and busy she is and its would have been 100% unfair for me to add to all her stress with Burt .... So off to Dave The Trimmer he goes

Wheel alignment all done ..... just had the front straightened up for a quick fix .... so its not a complete monster to drive until I get a four wheel alignment done

He will go to Dominic at ( DG Auto services ) in wellingborough who looks after Gerry for me ... his a wizz on all air cooled things ... The only person to work on Gerry with the servicing work... Dominic will give him the once over and check my works ok plus I will get Dom to do a four wheel alignment as he the man .....


air ride all in

91540834_10220361137731406_2701488627652755456_o.jpg


I must say i though i did a good job of it


I love Gerry just the way he is ... usable and practacle so slamming him will never happen .... but it did look cool


I see the biult thread is nearly at 470k hits ... so I'm guessing the threads helping people in lock down and being usful to people ... thats good to know


Well i've been off work now for 4 weeks and i'm been keeping very busy doing all the jobs that I've been putting off your ages .... but I'm missing mates and faces ..... and beffo missing camping at the AGM

Stay safe peeps

Chat soon
