    Best one I ever had was a Henry I was buying for the garage. Got it for 8 quid I believe as seller said it was b*ggered after he’d cut though power cable in error. Got it home and proceeded to check it over. Upon opening the plug I noticed that in his quest to replace the power lead with a new one, he’d simply reversed the L and N wires (or was colour blind). So a 30 second fix and a nearly new Henry for 8 quid including all the tools!

    That's impressive and my existing one may have more life left but at 10 years I've had my money's worth .

    Small pallet just arrived containing a big new Clk battery . Only ordered it yesterday and I'd forgotten already when the delivery guy arrived .

    Got the new battery in , God it was heavy and fiddly . Not a lot of spare room in the battery tray area .
    Probably took an hour in total , which was 45 mins more than I said to Mrs W when I left the house .
    Car only needed the Windows resetting , the radio stations all came back ok .
    Gave the battery base tray a good spray with ACF50 before fitting the new battery .

    It's nice to get good service from a vendor, it's becoming quite rare these days. Bet you had fun doing the swop. :p

    Pretty sure , but I've spent a lot of time in the Scottish mountains , and consumed Whiskey , so my DNA may have been altered .
