Cheers lads,

Minisprint, I'm in Syston. Out of interest does your name
have anything to do with the old Minisprint (now known as M.E.D)?

Carl.

P.s Not done much lately as I have ran out of gas :) , and my
main car head has gone up the swanny.

Oops! juust noticed is that a minisprint you have ;D* , guess that answers
my question.
