Default Thievin B******ds.

bit of a small set back last week, thieves broke into the place where I have all my engine stuff which is separate to the chassis build. Had plasma, arc welder and generator nicked, which was bad enough, but wankers pushed engine over which was freshly painted and partially stripped and on stand. It has landed on rear diff and not yet lifted to check damage.
Yet another hiccup ! I'm sure someone up there doesn't want me to finish this car.

Bastards, is the word you are looking for. I hate theiving gits. Caught a shoplifter last week He was a bit surprised cos he was twice my size but I saw the red mist and brought him down like the dog he is
I have an 85 amp arc welder that I don't use, it works fine but I have a much more powerful inverter now. If you want to pay the postage you can have it for nowt. Can't do more but hopefully it will "soften the blow" a bit.
PM me if you want it.

I had my garage ( attatvhed to my last house ) broken into in 2001.

They nicked over 2k's worth of tools and some parts. The insurance company said " Tools are car accessories, you need to speek to your car insurrer"

To which I responded... "You expect me to drive arround all the time with a welder, grinder, tool chest and all my other tools? It's a Garage, tools go in a garage!" they soon coughed up, with the exception of the car parts.

I came out better off in the end but always felt uneasy afterwards. Moved to a nicer part of town now.

You only get a woosh with a dump valve
