    That sounds great, splinters, and a perfect idea to try to dye. If it works, terrific, but knowing you have a whitish one is top news. I'll contact Harrisons soon and send you the specs when I have them.

    My brother was a judge in a wine-tasting competition this week, tasting up to 60 wines a day, not all very good. He said he's swilled so much acid, tannin and alcohol that it's stripped the lining of his mouth! He got very lyrical over the ones he liked, though. My mother had said he talks about his wines like I talk about the river.

    Hi James, I'm glad they arrived ok.
    If you and splinters need anymore for colour experiments etc let me know and I'll see what I can find.

    Yes, I do heartily repent. I repent I had not done more mischief; and that we did not cut the throats of them that took us, and I am extremely sorry that you aren't hanged as well as we.

    Thanks, David, I'll pass that over to splinters as I really don't want to put you to more trouble. If it's needed you must let me pay for the postage!
    Cheers,
    James.

    I havent been on here for ages. This is one of the most enjoyable threads I have read in a long time. Best of luck with the build James. I look forward to seeing how it turns out eventually.
    Good luck.

    I fully agree with drn, what a great thread! Family politics on my wife's side had soured the relaxed Sunday feel in the household but this has cheered me once more. Lovely stuff.

    Buy me a pint if and when I get to fish in your backyard
