    Good question brad.
    If I keep it that means no more projects for me, might put it up on ebay to see how much money I'll lose.
    Think I said at the beginning that this was a stupid idea.

    Spending money on stupid ideas with motorized things is what separates us men from our ape counterparts.

    that's a much more eloquent way of saying it.

    sorry, i wasn't meaning your project specifically was a stupid idea, just that we have all probably said that before starting a project and then gone on to prove it. i know i have.

    No need to appologise. I've way over spent on this. My guess it's worth about £2000 at best (and that's being optimistic)
    The really stupid part was spending north of 3 grand, and to make matters worse I let slip how much it cost to the Missus yesterday. That went down like a lead balloon.

    That's if she ever speaks to me again. Her last words were "How frigging much".

    You should feel lucky you only got the "how frigging much?" without the additional "are you frigging kidding me?", "what the frig were you thinking?" or "are you frigging crazy?", all of which I've heard at one point or another. Of course with my timid Queen you can substitute frig for the other F word and add a shopping spree into the project cost.
