    [since corrected with assistance from Techno] Well, that submission was premature, story of my life! :whistle: That title was supposed to read "courtesy of...", not "cour test", bloody corrective text and fat fingers don't mix.

    Firstly, I was going to say I'm not inclined to submit "high five" like accolades and plaudits unless there is good cause to do so.

    However, on the cusp of our first continental excursion, realising the van lacks security late into proceedings, Vanbitz made a special effort to find a space to accommodate a short notice install of a Strikeback system. Included was a night on their great campsite.

    The outcome - on reflection, given I was going for standard Strikeback with some additional options, that was spitting distance away from the full blown Growler in price, so we went with that instead!

    So many thanks to the team at Vanbitz for sorting us out, talking through the options, and the great install job today! Not forgetting the Funster discount of course! :)(y)

    Unfortunately for Cindy, her "Growler" is now the topic of much comment down the fire station... ;)

    Looks like predictive text correction fubar'd your post. Always read it twice before the submit button :LOL:

    Unfortunately the edit title function does not work and @Jim hasn't fixed it yet.

    Yes indeed, as per the edit, it was a horrible combination of fat fingered premature submission and corrective text. Not sure how/if title can be edited?

    Only the OP you can edit the title and the tab is top right of your post from memory but it doesn't make the changes you submit.

    Thanks, the option under "Thread Tools" to edit title seems to have worked.

    I was going to just post a link, but was then concerned that I may be chastised for inappropriate content.

    I first heard the term in the context of pasties. A "Grinsted Growler" was the phrase. No idea where it came from.

    Um, I wasn't thinking of that link, which is informative and product related, I was in more of an urban slang / Bo Selecta theme...

    Rowley, having had a Growler fitted six weeks ago I can only give you what has become the standard Bassett brief.....'When showing orf to friends and associates always stand outside!' The Van Bitz blurb about LOUD is not bubbles..................jeez that hurt, but at least I is alive man!:D
    Good money well spent! Cheers again Eddie and crew!(y)
