    Sorry Dick, I have obviously offended you which was never my intention..my apologies. You are, of course correct, that there is absolutely no excuse for challenging rudeness with further rudeness, for this I also apologise to the forum, as that makes me no different from those I have challenged. Perhaps in the light of this, it is time I should move on along with ClassicLife and others.
  2. ...and, of course, heavy duty ground anchors. I once left a gazebo out overnight. You know the scene, party, too much to drink, do it in the morning. We found it eventually, in the pond. Amazingly undamaged, but lesson learned.
  3. Well done Pete. I suggest that you might want to reinforce the joints at some stage with something like 3" angle brackets (or bigger), and make sure that the structure is easily dismantleable, just incase some jobsworth starts quoting local planning regs for 'permanent constructions'. Looking great, now no excuses to crash on.

    Spitfire6 - I quote my original post regarding hydrogen, which was bizarrely taken to task by someone who likes to think that he knows it all and obviously doesn't, by showing his ignorance. My comments were made to point out the dangers of using hydrogen which were highlighted (no pun intended - this is a serious comment) by the airship disasters of so long ago. I assume that all the relevant safety rules in place at the time, were correctly followed, but as we all know, these 'safeguards' may not be good enough and are only found wanting when it is too late (Grenfell Towers being a very sad example). Now if anyone wants to misquote and make any smart ars*d comments about that, please... don't bother
  5. Pete - Over the last couple of days we have used one of those very big garden umbrellas, in conjunction with a removable three pointed (four arm versions are available for a silly price) alloy, folding clothes line https://www.amazon.co.uk/Addis-35-3-Arm-Rotary-Airer/dp/B0045F9I5E/ref=sr_1_11?crid=2B58891FQW2WK&dchild=1&keywords=rotary+washing+lines&qid=1626634253&sprefix=Rotary+%2Caps%2C272&sr=8-11 with a sheet clipped across the top (use a tarp if raining). Hardley glamping but it keeps the sun off and stores easily. Should be quite cheap from the Poundland type of shop. You could even take the brolly with you on your travels in due course. You could get two brollies instead of the clothesline. Just a couple of ideas to try to help and cut down on the work.
  6. Ok. Just a thought. Good luck with the replacement.
  7. Paula - Off the wall thinking, did you ever fit that electronic distributor thingy, could that have anything at all to do with it?

    I don't understand your comment. Stop being a ridiculous smart a*se and make some sense, otherwise don't bother. Back to using the 'ignore trolls' (or, should that be a thrush) button.
  9. Keep at it, my cousin used to say, whatever you have, make the most of it, 'cause you're a long time dead. He's actually quite a happy sort of bloke!!
  10. Pete - Take heart, things will get better. Look to the future, the open roads, stopping when and where you want, look forward to and then live the dream. I did, and (1 Spitfire not withstanding) I am there. It has taken years of mistakes some very, very, expensive, but now that I am there I can see that it was worth it. No the Spit will probably never get done nor the hardtop, but in my case they are diversions that will get cleared up by others, but my life is for the living, I am content, I can only wish the same for your good self.

    To those of a certain age hydrogen brings up the thoughts, rightly or wrongly, of the airship disasters and the fires which destroyed them and took so many lives, when the hydrogen ignited.

  13. I was recommended polybush buttons at the time my leaf spring was in bits but could never find any or anything similar.
