    Yeah, I started the thread and when I got home it had turned horribly pear shaped very quickly so I decided to delete it...

    Thanks to everyone for their feed back.

    I'm browsing Shed brochures as I type

    Should have heaps left over out of 35K for a full retrim of the Fuego too

    I hate deleted posts. Sure, lock them down or remove offensive comments - but deleting them effectively removes the "honest guys" postings, and also makes it seem like a waste of time putting any effort into replying.

    There was a thread deleted a couple of years back, it was full of really good info, the sort of stuff that you'd search for later - but someone had a dummy spit and all the hard work went to the great bit-bucket in the sky.

    I would've preffered a few posts be moderated but I don't have that ability and those that do weren't around at the time and the thread was heading down a well worn path to oblivion...

    Sorry...

    I agree. Lock the thread, but please don't delete it. It's a poor reflection on the management of the forum.

    Europa: Let me know if you want a copy of the thread.

    I think if somebody wants a new car go for it. If they already have a Fuego -KEEP IT. The new car won't wear out as quickly!!

    I have moved the thread to a location where I could edit it and it is now restored.

    FWIW - Personally I'd say its a poor reflection on the users that lead to any post being locked or deleted...

    Regards,

    I have to say I was on the point of congratulating you for starting a great thread Richard. I was impressed by the question and by the clarity of the answers and by your response, buying a shed is a serioius asset and will make any further car reno work way easier and enjoyable, come rain, hail or shine. Good to see the thread back. And I hope that such threads get a seperate page like a sticky.

    seemed to exemplify the whole process very well, intelligent question, thoughtful answers, wise desicion on basis of discussion.
