Hahaha that's a quality photo..! My cab weighs in at nearly 80 kilo's, like to see my two shift that..! Not going to tempt fate too much though as they are a bit bigger than yours (12 and 15)...
Ooer... No pictures...

as far as i can see there are 3 links that dont show pictures but i was unable to back and edit it after posting.
Maybe that could be a featire you can add? allow editing for a short period after posting??

Thanks Founder :)


im thinking of doing the classic pacman eating dots and a ghost at the end.
only because this can be easily done with coloured circles bought in a craft shop so would be cheaper than designing and ordering vinyl stickers.

Not sure what to do side art wise.

Thanks for pointing that out. :hello:

I thought we did have some edit time for members after posting. I checked and it turned out we didn't, only 30 mins delete post time. I'll try and fix that to allow general members some edit time.
