    Default Almost the most expensive cardboard box ever...

    Last night, a mate asked us about 8pm if i could pick his Brother in Law to be up from Luton Airport, as he'd had a couple of drinks and didnt want to drive(understandably), So i goes off to Milton Keynes to pick my mate and another mate up, When i get there i realise i stil have the Irmscher Box on the back seat from earlier in the day when i dropped my new Irmy rear valence in for painting. Luckily one of his neighbours has a skip outside their house, so we duly toss it in there and crack on to Luton Airport, pick the guy up, and come home. We gets back to his about 2330, i drops them off and goes home to Leighton Buzzard..

    You know when something doesnt feel right, you know sonething is wrong but cant put your finger on it. All the way home i had that feeling, but couldnt put my finger on it. I gets home, has a quick scout round here before going to bed...

    About 0230 i wake up in a blind panic...

    THE BOX!!!!!!

    I had left all the fitting kit for the rear skirt loose in the bottom of the box, we had 5 hours arlier casually tossed in a skip!! So i did the totally decent Vectra Obssessed manical thing, that ll of us would do, I phone my mate at 0230 this morning, and demanded he go outside and check the box... Full credit to him, he got dressed and went outside and took the box into his house and checked it for me...

    Thankfully it all seems to be there, and i breathed a huge sigh of relief, Although when his missus see's me later, he says she will have some choice words for me!!

    That bl**dy box nearly gave me a heart attack!
