    It is indeed JL. And dated 1855. And earlier than we thought.

    Last Car Boot Weekend until Spring

    I wasn't going to bother this morning. It was pitch black at 6.30am, but I thought why not ? Have a coffee and stop looking like the living dead and get out there. I'm glad I did.
    Found this lovely...

    I absolutely agree Paul. I certainly don't have time either, to lay out all the components on a sheet in order to prove that I dismantle everything. As I said, our repair record and positive comments...
