    Mystery key

    Hi, Could it be for the fridge vent covers or perhaps if its little bit bigger to remove wheel trims ,or failing that if its a lot bigger its to gain access to the water tank drain:bung:Smile:

    Sir, You are indeed blessed !!


    You have found the missing Inca Talisman of Virility !!!!!!

    Last seen in the ownership of Manuel the Exhausted, High Priest of the Temple of Insatiable Maidens.

    It has been lost for many Centuries !!

    Use it's powers wisely, as owning it brings great success with Womankind, but beware of the Curse of the Talisman.............................................

    when travelling you place the Key in the seatbelt buckle so you can be unrestrained yet you dont get the annoying 'put yer belt on' chimes.

    Same as clipping in the belt properly and sitting on it but with the advantage if plod pull you you can quickly put your belt on without having to unbuckle and pull it from under you first.

    If your van is a Ford, it's a spare door key / ignition key, useable in about 2 years..............
