Without wanting to pry into your personal situation, one of my old neighbours was on invalidity due to being depressed because he was too pissed to work most of the time, his partner got a carers allowance and all the other added on bits.

cheers guys.unfortunately we are on our limit when it comes to social as kate claims for the whole family.we're hoping the council will take our house of this stupid shared ownership and stick it on the council house list but we won't know until at least this time next year.if I could sell the 'tina that would help but i'll make do for now.spent the afternoon trying to fabricate the top of the roof chaneel area and god it's difficult.no pics yet until it's sorted.

well the old girls tucked up in the garage now for the winter as it's cold and damp in there now so unless we have a mini heatwave she won't be touched.oh well it'll give me time to collect a few bits and bobs.

cheers jim.ye it's a fair bit one problem I've encountered is there is too much of a gap at the top of the door even with the new corner panel in place.oh well it'll get sorted one day. thanks Kerry for the offer.

well after deciding to work on rusty instead of breaking her I started working on her yesterday. spent ages trimming down a s/h corner panel I got from ralph.today I clamped it in place and tested the doors.
need to fettle the o/s door as it over laps at the top. chopped of the rear valance too.n/s is useless along to about half way.
do people replace this panel when putting a new valance on?it goes in the middle behind the lights.
Fancy a chinwag? This live chat box is just for you!
conrod: Hi Bob, have emailed you about the stripes. I have a couple of sets left. Cheers Conrad
