I'm actually from 'down under' originally hence the lost in Kent.
I feel right at home on this forum.
Lots of aussies a few brits, and a guy from not to far away from me is building a Merrimac (good choice i think) and will hopefully be posting some pics soon.
I'll think of you every time i'm stuck in traffic driving past birmingham.
I'm sure you wouldn't have forgotten the joys motorway traffic on bank holiday weekends.
Happy trails
