So true but you must never mention that it happened because of cack handed wrenching. :o
Khendar must come up with some tale of noble heroism in the face of a homicidal tradie wielding a fully loaded F250 or similar. :wink:

Looks to be healing well Khendar. Shame really as it doesn't look like the scarring will be braggable enough :wink:
