Grrr :ranting1:

When I said I'd go I was depending on a mate coming with me to split the fun - and the fuel bill. He's just pulled out! Knew he would as he hadn't been answering his phone to me for days :rolleyes:

As it happens I can still afford the trip (kind of) but still it's "censored" me off!

To top it off I've only just managed to organise an MOT for tomorrow. Tried to sort it 2 weeks ago but been messed around! Better pass as I've zero time to sort any issues out!

The weather seems to look like it may clear up a bit over the weekend,it's pouring in Glasgow today though. I think I'll be going to my mums and getting the gazebo out so I can work on the car. Hopefully change my caliper tonight and bleed the brakes,arb bush,sort rubber at front suspension cup,intercoller pipe work and clamps to go on,then check oil etc,if I get time wash the car. It's been polished and waxed but is dirty again. Are you lot all ready?

90% sure I am no longer attending :crybaby:

£125 odd down the drain on deposits but can't justify another £5-600 expense on my own right now...

Early turn in for me. Have to be up at silly o'clock to meet Vinny & Wedgey for breakfast.
Won't be bringing the Rev 4 beast as the clutch slave cylinder has decided to withdraw its services, so it will be the purple peril again this year. Hopefully we will have some t-bars off weather.

Ross, I need to know if you are going or not as I have a responsibility to the hotel to inform them of any changes. Can you confirm one way or another if you are going.

Thanks
