Project Old Board

Got some bushings from ebay, advertised as being suitable for ACS trucks etc.
Certainly look the part, 1/2" tall, red.

They are rock hard however, might be okay for the displayers out there but I want my ACS500's to turn. I'll see how they are once they are fitted.

I've spoken to my friendly fastener supplier to see if he can get me some new kingpins.

Hope to get this up and running soon.

New Shoes?

Indeed, got a pair of Vans 'Ferris', look a bit like a low Converse instead of the traditional Vans.

Look great with my pink Argyle socks don't they?

This was a tricky shot to take with my iPhone as there's no self timer (is there?) a very contorted lean and a few shots that missed later and got this one.

Helmet Project

It's moved a step forward, been a bit busy at work recently so it had taken a bit of a back seat.

Anyway it's coming along now. A few more weeks and I reckon it'll be almost there.

Brrr It's Chilli In Here

Went to Brighton Marina before we left for home on Sunday, great shop there.

Very friendly people in there, loads of samples and everything rated out of 10 for heat.

I've experimented in the past with adding chilli powder and/or sauce to peanut butter, looks like I missed out on the marketing of it. This is made in Eastbourne by a customer of his who came into the shop and said "I make Chilli Peanut Butter" they struck up a deal and the chap has gone into production now. Also does a milder version a smokey one and a Wasabi one.
This one was the best from my tastings. 

I got accidentally overcharged for the items I bought as we were busy chatting and the guy wasn't concentrating whilst counting, he refunded the overcharge and threw a bottle of this in as an apology.

0.75oz 'Travel Bottle' made in Goodyear AZ.

Brighton Weekend

Took the wife up the Hilton (ooh err) for her birthday weekend.

Here's some random pics from my iphone.

The Hotel

 View from the window of the air con units, taken using the tilt shift function on my power cam app

Where we ate on Friday night 

 The remains of the West Pier

Brighton Pavilion

 Nice but maybe a bit too hoppy

Obviously an acquired taste, warning may turn hair ginger

80% off, I'll take it.

Goodbye Vinny

Little Vinny is leaving work today, the lads in the Modelshop made him a toolbox as a leaving present.
Carbon Fibre with a Titanium handle.

We went to the pub yesterday and had a presentation.

Goodbye Vinny, we'll miss you
