    Went instead for the good old parang thingymajig.

    I am considering wearing my baggy jeans halfway down my derriere so you can read the non allergenic M&S label on my boxers.

    Would that do?

    Jeez no .. there are enough sights about without seeing your arse too ...

    I've no doubt, however, that in the correct Freelanderer section you'd get an enthusiastic welcome .. )

    At this price you don't need to worry, it's difficult to loose and holds an edge and reshapes well. The colour means it looks like a work tool and not a weapon.

    Plus it match's the car.....
