Heres a tag line for Aus Post
50% reliability aint so bad...? Is it...? Oh it is..... Well... :teasing-nutkick:

Nah its all good
Boiler isnt ready yet anyway
No holes have been cut, no welding done so it works out fine
I can cut the holes but im a complete novice welder
Ill hand that off to someone who knows what they're doing 8-}

Few things that i need to get done still
I need to drill the central 4 inch hole in the centre (Forgot to mention that i wanted it to my welder), rewire my elements (put the element ring on backwards :angry-banghead: ) and give the boiler a polish :handgestures-thumbupleft:
Didnt get time to do a vinegar run due to the above issues and my time spent gawking at it.

Hopefully ill be doing a sacrifical run on wednesday night!
Else itll be next wednesday
Ill keep you all updated
Cheers

Ordered another from 5 star so it should be here by monday
Looking foward to my sac run and it will probably be a sugar wash
Got a heap of sugar so itll be quick and easy
KEEEEEEN :dance:
