    The exhaust was just too low, it grounded on a couple of sleeping policemen. There was a silencer mounted under the passenger seat, but there are two box section crossmembers which prevented the silencer from being any higher.

    I returned to the place that fitted the exhaust and suggested that they could fit a right angle bend and mount the silencer across the car, in between the crossmembers.

    Here is the result, with a juice can for size, before it was about half of the juice can.

    What happened to the bloke holding the can? Did he survive being run over by a Berli?

    I'm assuming you haven't tried this version of I-B then? It tastes absolutely spot on. Mind you I can never see the day when I'll be tempted to make some sugar free tablet. Actually you've set me off thinking I now need to make some tablet.......

    This could be a new official unit of measure. Apparently Wales is, as people kept saying its about the size of Wales when describing something of that size.

    Thats very true about the Wales bit Alan. I spent over 8 years working in the Netherlands and whenever anyone asked me how big it was and how many dutchie's lived there I would always say "think of Wales but with circa 16 million people there". Its increased to over 17 million nowadays........ and they've reclaimed some land but it still holds approximately true.
