    I always drak police cars to the speed limit.
    But one of the joys of having a underpowered diesel is that I got no chance of blowing a drive shaft.

    Paul, send your grill to me and I'll plasti dip it for you mate.
    I'll then take 6 months to post it back to you. :thumbsup:


    I do like the Skoda, my mate owns mk1 VRS with less than 40k on it, its a right stunner.
    Another mate got the TDI octy estate and its lovely. They do have some nice little touches.
    The umbrella holder in the rear parcel shelf and flat boot storage is really good.


    Here my TV.

    I got a projector as well which is bigger than your TV.

    You can watch any catch program but you can't watch any show at the time of broadcast.

    I looked in to this and I phone to the TV people before I cancelled it.

    OK so now I need to take pictures of my TVs - you'll see them in about 6 months time when I get round to it - LOL

    A Stage II conversion would make a nice stealthy car - well as stealthy as a Race Blue vRS can be :whistle2:

    I need to change our main TV soon, still running our 7 year old 42" HD Ready Panasonic Plasma, Mrs has given approval for a slim frame 50" in the Den (which boasts a full blown 7.1 surround install). Also have a 32" LCD in the Bedroom, 37" LED in the garden room and 26" LCD in the guest bedroom (all Samsung). Kids have already bagged the 42 Plasma for gaming at their house when I upgrade.

    Scott - plastidip is probably the route I will go, a spare chrome frame from Skoda is £70 odd - any I've found at breakers go as a facelift upgrade pack so can't even go down that route.

    I was toying with having it colour coded Race Blue which looks good - but would make it prone to stonechips.

    Careful upgrade path, 26" was originally our Bedroom TV, we bought a 32" for the Garden Room - which looked too small - got a deal on a 37" LED so 37" to Garden Room 32" to Bedroom and 26" to guest bedroom - simples.

    Hang it from the ceiling and run all the wires between ceiling and floor panels. Real professional looking but you'll need your ceiling re plastering and you can't move it easily.

    Mine sits on a chair when I want to use.

    Only loads of wires if you fk up the install.

    Mount it in the ceiling and run the cables in the ceiling, down in the wall and into the tele. Done.

    It's a bit flimsy just mounting a projector to plaster board so you'd want a half decent mount. Suppose it could still be done neatly.

    You can only mount to the beams if they're where you want the projector otherwise it might not be in the right place!

    can you not get an adjustable bracket for a projector? :think:
    mount it centrally, then you can rotate it to any wall of your choice?

    Internal walls on our place are concrete blocks and plaster, great if you want to mount a heavy TV on the wall, but a pain when you need to cut a flush mount alarm panel in.

    I tested the bracket for our plasma by hanging off of it and I was over 14 stone back then. :(

    Luckily the wall where our Plasma is mounted is a cavity wall that is now an internal wall as the bungalow was extended by the previous owner, so although it was hard work to get a decent sized hole (due to the concrete blocks) I could easily hide all the cables in the cavity wall.
