It fits well, looks good and keeps everything clean,why not 5 out of 5.
Have you had a bad experience with one ?

You're probably right Jed. Being retired means I've more time on my hands than most though  :oldie:
I've updated my local data, to include your hugger rating, but what rating would you give your Blueflames please?
(I'll update the files on the site tomorrow, after I've added whatever came in after 20:00 this evening).
Mike
