    But then the grass dies.. or, on the driveway, they start turning into soil - plus they tend to collect up against the house, which just promotes damp (already a problem in a 1930s house).

    Man, only 74 pages and I can catch up with you :lol:

    Now let's see if I can get five minutes in the garage this weekend .. I'm meant to be decorating the livingroom - my least favourite job, ever. I'd rather un-clog drains! :mrgreen:

    You could 'flex' the P clip, but not spin them round - I think the tester would have snapped the bonded in fixing out of the reflector before that (and then I'd have had to beat him to death with his...
