Sounds good mate, currently on my 3rd year as a plater at a Cammell Laird shipyard, really enjoying it at the moment as ive been doing some QA work in the office. Hoping to do a HND in the next couple of years, not too sure what to go for though  :lol:   Loving all the work on your r5, im currently sorting the body work out on mine, hoping to get it done by this year, slowly crossing things off the list  :lol:
