Have been on this lucking on site for awhile now,thought it was about time I joined.

A bit about me.....

Always been into pulling stuff apart to see how it works. (Father had a lot of spare car parts under the house so it was like a gold mine for me, Had a hut with 12 volt battery, lights and car horns, my own home made pinball machine, you had to put 2 cents in to be able to play it).

I love building things and fixing stuff.

Car audio was my biggest hobby back in the 90s. (Still drive the same car and audio system from then)

All sorts of music

Love gadgets as well.

Tinker with computers, always played games (started on my ZX 48k Spectrum).

Also have 2 kids who are awesome.

Well that's all I can think of for now.
Cheers Paul

Welcome Aboard
