Just a quickie...

Many thanks to Simon at Tarnock Garage for his help last Saturday morning.

Bought a facelift 6-CD MP3 capable radio from eBay for Rambo, to replace the original "green screen" Sony headunit.

Unfortunately, a previous owner had obviously been there before me - the original radio was wedged in solid, twisted on it's runners and one of the clips broken.

Simon graciously spent a good 2 hours and probably around a litre of blood helping me remove the old radio, and fit the new one - and he didn't charge me a bean.

Good man - much appreciated.


There is no way I would have been able to do it on my own.

So, after cleaning up Simon's arterial spray from the inside of the cabin (thank God for leather seats), Rambo has a brand new radio!!

Once again, many thanks Simon - very sorry a quick 5 minute "please could you pop my old radio" job turned into a two hour epic........

Want to see Rambo's new knobs and all


OK - can do.

It's just that it looks like a facelift radio!!
I didn't think anyone would be particularly interested to be honest!!

But, I can do a picture!! Have to wait 'till this evening - Rambo is tucked up at home in the garage.

Not a clue.

Possibly.

But you'd have to check with someone in the know - and that isn't me I'm afraid.

Yeah, yeah - I've been busy. I'll get a picture up soon.


It's all "want, want, want" with you lot.....

Nope. Not guilty.

This one doesn't have SatNav.

Although, this was my second attempt - I got beaten on my first bidding effort too. Chuffing annoying!!
