its working again, on tm forum for a week before i put it on ebay, no interest yet though.

got it back with no paperwork so dont know what the fault was, all i know is it was a free repair so was not the finals,

the company i sent it to sent it on to another place for warrenty repair so its taking a while to find the full fault report, but its back thats the main thing.

now to shift it, i suppose not many are going to be interested cos of the slight history (all fixed now) but i can try
hi ed good luck whatever you decide to do with her !!! all i know the lincoln wont let you down *King*
