    Hi, I'm New ..... ish

    Bunch of slack-jawed faggots around here, this stuff'll make u a goddamn sexual Tyrannosaurus, just like me

    O'rite, long time no see, thought I'd pop by and see how you're all doing. I aint had chance to look around the site so I dunno if Matt ever finished searching for the Holy Grai ... I mean, working on his M1 GST ... or if Pete ever managed to create his Astrkenstein?

    Anyways, we dont wanna discuss them do we... I'll find out with a search (I'll get that in before someone says, yes I do remember)

    Soooo What have I been upto?

    Well the last time I logged in I think was just after my 23rd birthday back in July 07, since then I have bought my first house, been promoted and started wearing a veil. There's one part of that which was a lie, guess which... No prizes for first OR second place.

    So, the house ... well it's on a nice quiet estate, fairly new build (late 90's), semi detached and I had the bright idea to gut the whole lot. Yep, every room. So all I had left was floor boards, some walls and well that's about it. Everything else from radiators & skirting board to the entire kitchen and bathroom were replaced... Anyway, enough of this, you want pics ... well, should I do a guess whats in the box style post? ... could take quite awhile ... ... ... anyone got a spare few hours? didnt think so. Here's a few pics I quickly took earlier.


















    So there u go, obviously I'm not going to put pics of the lov...bedroom or the bathroom since those are currently in use

    If anyone wonders what the setup is in the front room, its a 40" 1080p Full-HD Samsung LCD TV, Playstation 3 (Blu-Ray) which is hooked up to an Onkyo THX certified 7.1 Dolby TrueHD & DTS Master Audio AV Receiver which then outputs to several KEF speakers & KEF subwoofer for a very nice (though not for the neighbours) cinema experience.

    There's probably alot of n00bs on here who dont have a clue who I am, well I own an Astra Coupe 888 which has also had a few bits and pieces added to it ... you can see some new-ish pics and the new additions to the car over in the Car Chat forum.

    Hope you're all keeping well, I won't be online as much as I used to due to not really being into cars anymore, but I'll pop in from time to time to give someone grief


    Oh yea by the way, the plaque for the alternates is down in the ladies room ...

    Indeed it has, I see the Cumbria section has been lively in my absence

    The house took almost 3 months to do, from starting to take it apart the day I got the keys to moving in on Xmas Eve! ... I picked a great day

    Nice to see a few old faces

    Is it because you've grown bored of your current motor? or just can't be bothered anymore?

    I've been looking at several motors for the past few months and I keep wanting to change... sometimes I want a nice sensible car, other times I want something a bit special ... but either way, they wont be getting modified since the house gets my attention these days as it goes up in value not down like cars do.
