    Well we had a bit of an issue just recently with kids and slingshots , we put on a bit of a do at our house in Tugas , and invited our neighbours as usual , we even had an American guy named "Shawn" and his lovely wife attend , all up I suppose over 100 people , at the start of the evening , maybe 6 o"çlock , it started raining rocks , one of which was a direct hit on the windscreen of our Mitsubishi fieldmaster , and naturally enough since a few miles has been added the crack has spread , do any of the forum members know where we will be able to get the windscreen replaced without the applicable skin tax , any suggestions appreciated.

    I'm pretty sure the shop across the street from Hypermart does windshields (btw, that's proper name for it :wink:). They have always given me fair prices on body work.

    This is a nice video for non-native English speakers (such as Australians).

    Part 1:

    [video=youtube;Ss-rQyQfAUI]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ss-rQyQfAUI[/video]

    There is a part 2 that is strongly advised for those of you Australians that come from, what you call in your native savage tongue, the "Outback". O--O

    When I sailed into Northern Australia, several people commented on my American accent, I just told them I didn't have one, I'm just an arrogant American. :smile:
