yep. went in perfectly. couldn't be bothered to take the front shelf effort out in the dark, so the tailgate wouldn't quite close, but still...
My word the car-a-van's heavy!

Ooooh, take a decent jack with you next time you use it. Needs jacking up and the jackey wheel lowering in the retaining clamp. If that makes no sense, ask me on Sunday. Just flagging it up while I think about it...

and my Scirocco (and my drive) is currently under 4 inches of snow!

Looks like no Dubfreeze today - i'll have to see what the weather is like after lunch, rain expected from 11.00am ish.

What's weather like down there Jay?

I should be coming. Although I can't guarantee I'll be on time. If I'm not there by 4, assume I've broken down or crashed or something!

yep.
had a merry time shifting bricks.
Just got round the corner from the diner and the carb started doing funny things. coaxed it along to Jay's house, but wouldn't develop any power under load. Towed i up to my folk's house at woodville. Investigations tomorrow. I'll be going straight for that needle valve!
