I'd planned to meet Nige and track down a decent winch.

However, work took a turn for the worse on Thursday (will find out if I still have a job next week!) so I decided to hold back on buying "toys".

So, ended up with a pair of head rests, some seat covers and a few stickers.

Still, there's always the next one in October!

I actually made money! met Mike and sold him two alloys, and then only brought a bling bling V8 badge to go on the 109, nearly brought a Clark Mast clamp but RogueTrooper wouldn't let me as he was muttering something about getting the gearbox fixed before adding a 12 Metre PU12 Clark Mast :rolleyes:

me and the better half have decided to sell the house this summer and there was some element of guilt at the thought of adding more useful things to the house, especially as we just made a list of all the things we are going to get rid of.

So in light of this I restrained myself, plus there is always the october sodbury and maybe and april one before we head off down under.

In the end I bought two winch hooks, which we have confirmed makes an excellent quick release tow rope and two bulkhead repair panels (£10 for pair). To be honest, nothing really, really caught my eye there either.

Saw a few of the forumeers, but they all looked busy so didn't bother them. Did get quite tempted to see if Jez was taking cards for his uber tough rear arms and talked them up to a mate who was along.

nice weather, usual traffic wait/weight :). Best thing was got see a few club members that I haven't seen in ages as I am too busy in work.

I was pleased - didnt spend as much as i was expecting....

Got a driver side mat, drivers side (dented) door(?), front middle seat, pair of side windows for rear, new re-trim kit for drivers side seat, oh and a chrome A bar which i didnt notice the dent on until i was waiting for my change.... :angry:

Missed a door skin which i ummed and argghed about - then went back and it had gone....

Otherwise, great weather - and a great day out.

Was it me or did there seem to be less stalls this time - i noticed the field to the left of the toilets was used for parking and not stalls.

Well I sold a few things and only bought a pair of SU's so I came away with more cash in my pocket.

Saw a few people off here, was pitched right across from Orgasmic Pikey.

Thought it was quiet though for such a nice day. Maybe due to it being easter weekend. Anyone else selling think trade was slow?

A lower dash for a couple of quid

Radiator grille for a couple of quid (and then everyone kept telling me they had a better one I could've had :rolleyes: ho hum got it now)

A PAS pump pulley

A 20-ton bottle jack

4x RR headlights for father for £2 (thanks Andy!)

A steering bar for little_nay for nowt courtesy of Mr Warne

A big oil cooler for £2

A decent "poo" shovel for russia for £10 (Jez assures me this is a worthwhile investment)

A V8 aircon pump & mount for a fiver

A timing light for £2

A couple of 1/4" socket rails for nowt, some bloke was giving them away :huh: didn't ask questions just grabbed 'em :lol:

A dipstick for the V8

A bison burger (mmmmm, Bisony goodness)

And I picked up my hand-made TIG'ed fuel tank from Jez which will give me something to do tomorrow B)
