    I was on site yesterday and lost the keys to my van looked every where for them cant find them and going to have to change the locks.:crying:
    thinking ouch big money this.
    never got round to getting a spare set :doh:

    well got a very pleasant surprise the
    Steering lock and two key's £46.95
    new door locks set of for £14.99
    new door handle £13.25 broke it months ago
    total cost £75.21 including vat postage

    so I will have two door locks spare with key if any one has a old fiat needing two new locks

    Haven't priced up the hab locks yet but I was going to change the door on the hab to one with a window to help with the blind spot
    That will tech me for being a tight bum:swear2:

    You have my sympathy Bill, keys and me don't get on. Thought I had lost the keys for my elec bike only to find they were still in the battery on the bike which I had locked to some fencing outside of the Lincoln show!!! Could easily of had the lot nicked! I already have 2 Funsters key rings with my mobile on, looks like I will need to order another one for the bike keys just in case.

    We have a red fob Rapido master key that we found at Wissant in August.
    We kept it as we didn't know what to do with it.
    If you lost a Rapido master key then, we have it!

    Found it in a field, not a site or aire....

    Bill, my 2ic decided to go on a run across Salisbury Plain. He did around 8 miles by the time he got back to his car, only to find he'd lost his car keys :Eeek:

    12.8 miles later, there they were, exactly the same place he had put them down when he had a leak by a tree :rofl:

    His admin is somewhere up his butt the best of times. Borrows my trainers, socks, shirts, ties, uniform etc and all because he's forgotten, misplaced or lost his. He's a great guy and a brilliant mate too, but I did p myself when he told me about his extra cross country activities :rofl:
