Saw this in the flesh today, looks as good in the flesh as it does in the pics :ok

Cheers Paul for the sarnies and coffee, made the journey to Woking soooooo much nicer :ok

Did you find out if that was a swarm flying over - really bizarre!

Cheers,

Look I forgot to remove the plastic caps off the rad arm bolts and they got painted the works :roll: and in an earlier picky it was noticed and i could reply that I was aware of it and that they were a spare pair i fit to prevent build up on the threads or the plastics(which I usually do) but in this case I clean forgot. I either like them as like this or the mounting in black.
but I bet your a pedant when it comes to boxes or at the very least a closet pedant :rofl
