    Job’s a good one!

    When I order items for delivery to Spain, certainly when using eBay, I do try to talk to the vendor and negotiate a price rather than just agree to their estimate.
    A friend runs a mailing house and regularly delivers to Spain, I can make use of his services, essentially for free, so only pay UK postage.

    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

    Certainly the steering column is now 100% 'play-free'.
    Still sorting the bodged ex-Marina wiring loom though. Am fitting a 10 blade fuse box and removing cut wires that used to serve things like interior lights ...

    (My stepson lives in Alicante. He has had huge problems with English solicitors assuming there is door-to-door delivery throughout Spain as per the UK - rather than a postbox in the nearest town )
