    At Millport Alan thought he would help the demolition of a wall along. As per photo.

    On our return home took it to a local MH repairer.

    An insurance estimate of guess how much?

    Alan is now repairing it himself. Doing a good job too.

    Anyone got any paint blending tips? 20160906_095342.jpg

    Spot on. So far its cost around £145 on parts and spray paint but think Alan has decided might be best to follow @Robert Clark advice and get paint job done professionally.

    But that includes rebuilding the wall as well, hopefully.

    45 euros, including wine, but not the tip.

    No the building is set for demolition. I think Alan was secretly trying to earn a little money by trying to knock it down.:LOL: Worst of it is he had just fitted a reversing camera a few weeks before.

    What a joke, how can anyone qoute such a sum and keep a straight face, its one of the many reasons I choose and always recommend you try to do stuff yourself if possible at least that way you know whats been done.
