    Good read that nij, never been to the isle of wight myself however I spend every summer for at least one week in dorset (swanage) I can always see the rocks of the island but have never ventured across, was going to last year but didnt quite manage it.

    Thursday 19th June
    A windy day - but at least it wasnt raining and it was quite warm.
    Went to Needles, played a round of crazy golf (which did go crazy towards the end). We were planning to get the cable car to the beach - but it was too windy so stopped running.
    Decided as it was a clear day we would take the pleasure flight today rather than tomorrow - not knowing what the weather would be like - though it was still windy and we got blown about all over.
    Then a swim in the sea - then the pool (both outdoor and indoor).

    Wednesday 18th June
    The weather for the first time isnt nice hot and sunny - it was overcast - not too cold, but not the good stuff we have been having so far.
    Decided to have a go in the middle of the island today - Godshill (with its Toy museum and model village), Wooton, Havenstreet, Ashley & Smallbrook steam railway.













    Also I finally got round to fixing my alarm bleeper (soldering the battery joints back up) - just on the look out for the metal part that attaches the bleeper to a key ring for the spare bleeper.

    Then decided to have a relaxing late afternoon and evening, so a dip in the pool is next on the cards, followed by evening meal cooked by my own fair hands in the chalet......then a relaxing walk on the beach and bed lol.

    Tuesday 17th June
    Washed the car and drove to the garage in Lake to try get the rattling sorted - no luck, told to call back at 4........
    Decided to take a tour of Newport and then Cowes (West Cowes) - a beautiful place, stopped and had coffee and cake by the sea, the best chocolate cake I have ever had.
    Fort Victoria was next on the hit list - a really nice place again (what is it with this island? Its so nice) - went round the model railway (I used to have a hornby kit as a kid - but this is huge) with all its little people and adult things lol.
    As it was mid afternoon, decided to take a coastal drive back to the garage in Lake, some amazing views (including a view point which was rammed so decided to go back later on in the day). Got to the garage - still cant get it on the ramp - they will call me ----------- Bull.
    I then remembered that there was a National Tyres near Newport - so as a last ditch attempt we went there. The lad there was really sorted (owns a modded Focus) - got my car on the ramp, took one look and ripped off the lower cat heat shield and put the middle rubber back on - job done and wouldnt take any money (gave him some beer tokens instead).
    Decided to go for a drive to that view point again then return for food and drink......... The bloody sun - in the way, so the view point wasnt much good - Typical

    Ok, update with pics

    Is it low enough?






    Also I had a play with my rear badges, not 100% sure if i like them or not (but i do have other plans for them!!!)





    The pics dont really do it justice, but you can see where it is going.

    So to update the mods - exhaust, spoiler, lowering, badges, tints and the high level brake light (cheers mate).

    I had a lot of good responce from the meet today - so i must be doing something right.
