Me to,

I like what you did to your wife and what a spectacular result you got with the C5. Brilliant, I restored some C5's as well but didn't find leverage so far, to get my wife to help me. Although, I should not complain about her. I managed to stay married and got 7 C5's stored in the house as well. (She told me once, three is the absolute max. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :)

Well done Retro Andy!

I've just noticed that Mrs Radiomarty had a little helper in one picture, or she has two pairs of hands. Would be good if women did, they could do the housework muck quicker  ;D

I think Radiomarty asked the doctors to go for the optional "extra limb attachment" conversion at the Hospital while Mrs Radiomarty was being rebuilt after the Prescott Hill accident  ;D.
The extra arm should grow to full size evetually  :D

The extra set of arms are to assist with turning corners - rather than going straight on !!!! :D ;) :)
