    The new draglink came today, and was promptly fitted.

    getting it near enough for handling purposes is a good thing to do, so keep the old one for reference.. ;)

    and fitted.

    Jesus, you weirdo. But only because I am too lazy to actually clean my car, let alone polish it.

    Don't bother it doesn't work, at least in my case it didn't. Keith sparked a memory of a Champ so pull up an ammo box,don your tin helmet and swing the lamp. Whrn my brother in law was stationed in Cyprus in the early sixties ish he went on the lash with a few mates.they couldn't get back to camp because no taxi would tske them they were that p1ssed.they "found" a military police Champ all lonely so took it for a drive nearing camp they realised questions would be asked so on a bend they liberated it over a cliff and parked it in the sea and walkedinto camp.Bet there was some red faces to match their caps when the Cherries found it gone never to be seen again. So if you are ever diving off the coast of Cyprus and find a Champ you know the story .
