Busy bud, i fit it all in when i can, and a 1 hr bay clean when taking pics, vids etc becomes a full day of my time , then i need to add ALL the pics which will be a lot and a write up so it is followed to the letter so no one fudges up there Roadsters if they do it wrong with a huge write up for everyone to follow for free from my time, it is not high on my list as i get hounded for all kinds from everywhere.
I have personally done a bay clean and taken a load of pics which are sat there waiting, you seem to have a lot more time on your hands than me to throw your stones, if you had my life and dealt with half the things i personally do then i would pat you on the back , know the full story first buddy.
Everyone wants , but no one Fudging gives, 2 fudging posts of " i want" what a great help you are being to the rest.

mine needs doing :wink: :wink: :whistle:

(although it looks like you've already done the pics, just not had time to do the write up - this isn't a dig in any way - I don't know how you find the time to do all the stuff you do - i barely get the time to look at mine!) :bow-yellow: :handgestures-thumbup:

And you are right ,,,,,,yours does need doing, :handgestures-thumbup: it is just a toss up of taking a 1hr or so to do it and take her away, or a full day taking pics as i go p*ss wet through for a how to and then another 2 days sorting all the pics out to be loaded onto the hard drive and then loaded onto here and then do a write up.....Time is the problem as you know, you have been here.

If the right planets align, and we both get a time slot sometime soon, i could take the pics and do the upload/write up (& help out with the work) in exchange for mine being the demo vehicle? :idea:

Ritchie I do hope this was just a bit of craic as we say in this part of the world and I am guessing it is given the wee guy laughing at the end.

Wayne gives a lot of time to the maintenance of these wee motors as well this site. When he says he is going to do something he will but he is definitely more of a fixer than a cleaner and that where he likes to spend his time.

Hang in there and we will all get the advice we need and while you are waiting get the toothbrush out and start cleaning it while you wait for the master.... :handgestures-thumbup:
